Luigi Circuit is the first track of the Mushroom Cup as the introductory to Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and the last track of the Shell Cup in Mario Kart DS.

The staff ghost setup in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! is Mario and Luigi in the Red Fire, and the staff ghost setup for Mario Kart DS is Luigi in the Poltergust 4000.


Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

This track's design is among the simplest in the series, featuring nothing more than a simple oval-shaped track that folds in on itself at one point. There are Dash Panels littered around the track and the normal supply of item boxes. A yellow building, a Luigi "castle", and smiley hills are visible in the background. It is full of Nintendo cloud signs and mushroom-looking things. Due to the simplistic nature of the track, the lack of sharp turns, and the long straightaways, the track favors heavy karts with high top speed. There are only two obstacles: pipes and a Chain Chomp. This is a very good course for snaking. It is the prequel of Yoshi Circuit and the game's Mario Circuit and all three have the same music.

This track differs with some engine classes. In 50cc, there's a border in the middle of the straight path before the oval turn blocking the two lanes. In 100cc and up, there is no border on the track. This makes it possible to attack someone who is going in the opposite direction. Also, in 50cc, some alternate paths are blocked. In 100cc and up, players can take these alternate paths.

Mario Kart DS

This track returns in Mario Kart DS as the final course of the Shell Cup. The border in the middle of the track does not return even in 50cc. The track is also wider in size. The alternate paths don't appear in any CC also. 

Missions information: 

▪ 2-7: Toad must drive through 10 numbered gates in order.

▪ 3-3Luigi must collect 15 coins while avoiding the Chain Chomp.


  • In the background, the player can see a mansion with a green "L" on the front. This mansion is actually the mansion you'll get if you get one hundred percent in Luigi's Mansion for the GameCube.
