Universal Studios Japan is keeping guests cool in the oppressive Japanese summer heat with a special summer version of their NO LIMIT! Parade.

Starting on July 3 and running through September 1, the NO LIMIT! Summer Splash Parade features characters from Super Mario, Pokémon, “Despicable Me,” Sesame Street, Peanuts, and “Sing” on floats that shower guests with water. Guests can also participate with their own Super Nintendo World water shooter.

Super Nintendo World Water Shooter

The water shooter returns from last year and is available for ¥3,500 ($24.50). It’s yellow, red, green, and blue. The Super Nintendo World logo is on one side and a picture of Super Mario characters is on the other side.

There are water stations throughout the park to refill your water gun.

After the parade, the water stations are closed.

Universal encourages guests to use the water shooters during the parade. They can also visit the Mega Cool Zone to practice their shooting with targets.

NO LIMIT! Summer Splash Parade

Before the NO LIMIT! Summer Splash Parade begins, an announcement warns guests that they will get wet. That’s the whole point of the parade!

Dancers are armed with their own water shooters to spray guests. The dancers leading the parade wear colorful pixelated outfits that match the first float.

The first float has screens reading “NO LIMIT! Summer Splash Parade.” It’s decorated with large stars and disco balls.

Other performers push barrels with more water and shooters for the dancers to grab.

Next up is the Hello Kitty float. Dancers on this pink and white float hold large leaf-shaped fans. Water shooters have been attached to the floats so performers can periodically grab them to spray onlookers.

Hello Kitty, Dear Daniel, and Mimmy White wear summery floral outfits.

Hello Kitty is followed by a Peanuts float with groovy designs. Charlie Brown, Lucy, and Snoopy are also in fresh summer ‘fits. Snoopy is even wearing a rain hat to keep his ears protected from the water.

Minion dancers lead the “Despicable Me” float.

Some are dressed like regular yellow Minions while others are dressed like Evil Minions. They have buckets and pails they use to splash guests with water.

On the float are Minions wearing swim trunks, floaties, and goggles. Gru and his family are on the top of the float. Some of them are also wearing rain hats and coats.

The Sesame Street characters are ready for summer. Cookie Monster wears cookie-patterned swim trunks and a rain hat. Elmo has on goggles and a snorkel.

Abby is in a sunny yellow and orange outfit.

Moppy’s wearing a cool shirt and headband. You might also see Oscar the Grouch peek out from his garbage can.

Dancers with squid puppets separate the Sesame Street and “Sing” floats.

Johnny is in a blue raincoat with a translucent hood so you can still see his face.

Rosita and Gunter are wearing more summer-friendly versions of their signature purple dance outfits.

Yoshi, Luigi, and Daisy steer their Mario Karts atop cloud floats, leading the Super Nintendo World unit.

This marks Daisy’s first appearance in a Universal Studios Japan parade.

Dancers in Mario Kart jumpsuits are ready to splash water on guests watching the parade.

By this time in the parade, you’ll probably be soaked.

There was so much water in the air, it looked like it was raining.

The next big float features Mario and Bowser. The Super Mario characters are not in new summer outfits, just their standard looks.

The last float features Pikachu and other Pokémon peeking out of Pokeballs. The dancers are in summer-appropriate attire.

Another new addition to the parade is Gyarados. The water Pokémon fits right in with the summer splashing.

Gyarados is controlled by three puppeteers.
