Moo Moo Meadows is the second track of the Mushroom Cup from Mario Kart Wii and the first course of the Shell Cup in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The course is inspired by Moo Moo Farm from Mario Kart 64. Despite being similar, Moo Moo Meadows is a little bit larger.

The course is a country road located in a country of green lawn, with a river aside of a farm, and a few trees surrounding the track. The music suggests that it is either in the Midwest or somewhere in Ireland. Although the track is considerably wide, most of it contains zones of high lawn where players cannot accelerate when driving over them.

The course also features varied hills and curves; therefore, managing Drifting makes it less cumbersome to clear this track. There is a blue ramp in the middle of the track, one of the two places where one can perform a Trick. Moo Moos also tend to cross the track. When hit, they knock the racer over and slow them down.

Monty Moles actually dig and pop up from the ground, hitting Karts that pass on their holes instead of just popping up from a single hole. Driving over a spot they are digging in will slow racers down a bit, but using a Mini-Turbos just before hitting the spot will nullify this.

Near the end of the track, the road widens up but has patches of grass all over the place. The navigation of these fields can be eased by taking the Boost Pad that sends the racer soaring over the grass (while getting an Item Box, too!) and, after a simple left turn, the finish line...

The course makes a reappearance in Mario Kart 8 as the first course in the Shell Cup. This track is barely changed, but here are the few new stuff that it was added: The race now takes place in the morning (the background is now sunrise) instead of the afternoon. On the curve leading to the grassy spots, the right side of the track has been elevated a meter higher. On the new part of the track, there are three coins along the curve as well as a ramp leading to a glider pad at the right which could last until the grassy spots. It used to be a playable stage in battle mode, but was removed in the Deluxe version.


  • In the area with the cows, it is possible to go across the fields with a Mushroom to avoid the moving cows and speed up. for all games
  • Another one is in the area with the Monty Moles. A Mushroom can help the player speed across the grassy hills. for all games
