The normal staff ghost setup is Bowser driving a Pipe Frame with Standard wheels and a Beast Glider, and the expert staff ghost setup is Bowser driving the Koopa Clown with Roller wheels and a Super Glider.
It is very short compared to the succeeding tracks, has a lot of Coins in some areas, and features Fireballs in lava pits as well as Thwomps. Its background looks like a castle wall with a Bowser face imprinted on it. The music is the same as Bowser Castle 2 and Bowser Castle 3. The Super Mario Kart Bowser Castle 1 uses this background also.
This track reappears in Mario Kart 7 as a retro course in the Shell Cup. In that game, the track is famous for being the first retro track to receive a patch update for online play. The patch prevents a shortcut loophole.
