Banshee Boardwalk is the third track of the Special Cup in Mario Kart 64. It resembles the Ghost Valley courses from Super Mario Kart. The race begins on a boardwalk with some guardrails missing. Because the setting is at night, it is easy to fall into the water below. Additionally, a giant Cheep-Cheep will Jump out of the water in an attempt to swallow the racers whole (even though it never does). The second half of the race features an abandoned shack where bats fly at the racers, lowering their speed. The bats don't appear in Time Trial mode. Additionally, in some parts of the track some Boos appear, but they just laugh when the player passes by.
in Mario Kart DS
This course returned as the second track in the Lightning Cup of Mario Kart DS. The Cheep Cheep is replaced by a Boss Bass and the bats were replaced by Swoopers. The Boss Bass jumps so high, he cannot swallow the racers. Finally, the Swoopers appear in Time Trial. The Boos (like in Luigi's Mansion) appear only during Grand Prix and Time Trial.
 Instruction manual description
A dark and mysterious boardwalk over water is the location for this course. At the corners, some guardrails are missing, making its design quite rough. At the old building that you pass through along the way, try not to run into the large army of bats.
