The Fargo Mario Wall was created in local artists Dark Elvis and Icky Hiccup in 2018. It features the iconic blue-sky background of Mushroom Kingdom, a green warp pipe, an enemy Goomba, and a couple of question blocks. It’s even designed to go with the flow of the brick wall it was painted on, the bricks are actually the bricks.

When I was kid back in the 80s, the original Nintendo NES was my first game system and the original Super Mario Bros was one of my favorite video games (and, truthfully, about where my skill level at playing video games peaked). So finding the Super Mario mural in Fargo and getting to pretend I was Mario in action, was a childhood dream come true.

The artists have even stated that they purposefully left Mario (and Luigi) out of this colorful street art so that visitors can get the full, interactive experience by pretending to be Mario (or Luigi) in photos, jumping to uncover what lies behind those question blocks. Will it be coins? A super mushroom? A fire flower? A Starman? You’ll have to visit Fargo, North Dakota and see for yourself.
