Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

This track's layout is a plain simple oval (similar to most NASCAR tracks, but reversed) with one side in pink and the other side in blue, supposedly cotton-candy colors. There is also an amusement park themed background and the music sounds excitingly wacky, also resembling Toad Park from Mario Sports Mix. All Green Shells and Red Shells can go over the middle, making this course destructive and exciting.

A Ferris wheel and a Koopa tent can be seen in the background. Also over the Start/Finish Line and in the background, a sign of Baby Mario and Baby Luigi in diapers can be seen.

All racers must do seven laps, making this the first of two tracks with a new set of laps attached to it. The second is Wario Colosseum with two laps. It is the shortest course-for-lap ever and therefore it is possible to 'overlap' someone multiple times, taking roughly eleven to thirteen seconds per lap.

Mario Kart DS

In Mario Kart DS, the lap count was reduced to five and the roller coaster was removed due to the graphics limitations of the DS.

Missions information
  • Mission 2-8: Peach must perform 6 power slide mini turbos in 3 laps.
  • Mission 3-Boss: Toad must race a giant Goomba named Goomboss to the finish in 3 laps.

Mario Kart 8

The track makes a reappearance in Mario Kart 8 as the first track in the Crossing Cup. It is heavily renovated, as it now takes place in a theme park. The track now moves up and down and uses Anti-gravity when the karts go up and down. Baby Park also has the least amount of possible collectible coins on the track, at 16. Baby Mario and Baby Luigi now have their shirts and dungarees.


  • On each turn, a Mushroom or Star can be used to cut off grass sections. This only works in Mario Kart 8. for MK8

  • Petey Piranha is the only character tall enough to be spun out by the roller coaster in this course.
  • Taking seven laps to complete in most iterations (five in DS), this is easily the shortest course in the series.
  • This is one of two tracks in the series not from Super Mario Kart that appears in more than two games, the other being GCN Yoshi Circuit.
    • Coincidentally, both first appear in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, reappeared as a retro course in Mario Kart DS, and returned as a DLC course in Mario Kart 8.
  • In Mario Kart 8, the track, along with the other downloadable courses, Mute City and Big Blue, takes place entirely in anti-gravity.
    • It is also the only one of the three to not be based off of F-Zero.
  • In Mario Kart 8, SNES Rainbow Road, N64 Rainbow Road, the new Rainbow Road and this track are the only courses in the game to have the map in different colors instead of just blue. This was changed to white with all three Rainbow Road tracks in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
  • In Mario Kart 8, the track's music speeds up after each lap.
  • In Mario Kart 8, the castle in the background is a reference to Sleeping Beauty's Castle at Disneyland Resort.
  • In Mario Kart 8, Luigi's Mansion can be seen in the background.
  • Though it might appear to be owned by both baby characters, it's actually owned just by Baby Luigi. [1]
  • A similar track is Test Circle, which cannot be accessed normally.
