Track Descriptions- NitroEdit

Mushroom CupEdit

Mario's Rainbow Castle- The track is based of the board from the first Mario Party. The track is very basic and has a few turns and boost ramps.

Mushroom Motordrome- This is one of the 5 (6 in Wii U) tracks that has a shortcut when you fall off the edge of the track. You will remain on that track until the lap/finish line. The track has 2 enemies, Goombas and Venus Fire Traps.

Rainbow Road 1- This is one of the 5 (6 in Wii U) tracks that has a shortcut when you fall off the edge of the track. You will remain on that track until the lap/finish line. This is the third longest track in the game. There are not many fences around, causing a higher risk of falling, fortunately, there is a track underneath.

Bowser's Fortress- Lava pits, podoboos and Magmaarghs are the main enemies in this circuit. Many sharp and short turns are scattered all over the track.

Mariachi Mole Mine- The main setting of the track is a Spanish/Mexican-themed mine. There is a corkscrew that is shaped like a Mariachi Hat. This is the second longest track in the Nitro Cup.

Yoshi Circuit- This course is only in Wii U. It is located at Yoshi's Island, with Egg Mountains, Hefty Goombas and Burts. At Final Lap, the day scenery changes into evening scenery, but Hefty Goombas sleep and Burts little bit faster walk.

Flower CupEdit

Boo Mansion II: The circuit is similar to the original Luigi's Mansion. You start in a green graveyard and you enter the mansion. You go through a picture of King Boo and Boos and Peepas appears around.

Star Cup Edit

Chomp Factory: This exclusive track appears only in Wii U version, replacing Bowser Castle. You start in a cave and you enter the factory by an elevator. The factory is full of Chain Chomps and many red glowing lights. In the second section, there is a corkscrew that is shaped like a Chain Chomp, and there are many lava pits and Magmaarghs. The final section begins with a giant glider jump, that leads you into a track locating in Moonshade Kingdom, with many sharp turns, U-turns and an underwater section with some metallic things and a Chain Chomp that leads into the finish line.
