Music Park (known as Melody Motorway in Europe and Australia) is the third race of the Flower Cup in Mario Kart 7. The course takes place on a winding road containing several musical instruments, including a giant xylophone and piano as well as a giant tambourine that acts like a Mushroom Trampoline from Mushroom Gorge. All instruments make their own sounds when driven over or passed by.

Course layout[edit]

The course starts off with a road containing trumpets and a large violin. Following this is a piano turn, with two Super Piranha Plants planted near the end and surrounded by circles of light, near which is a small ramp sided with a Music Block. These lights around the Piranha Plants are to be avoided by racers. Otherwise, the plants will bite, causing the victim's kart to tumble end over end. After xylophone and glockenspiel turns, the tambourine trampoline appears; here, the sides of the track are full of musical sound waves. Then there is a split road containing Bouncing Notes jumping side to side. After that there's a big turn with a smaller tambourine trampoline which can be used to cut the turn. After another left turn there's the finish line.

Any players that race beneath these notes will be flattened and spun around. However, if players are near one of the notes when it hits the ground, they will be launched into the air and can take advantage of the air time by gaining a short boost.

Trivia[edit]

  • The banners around the track have the name "Music Park" on them, even in the non-North American versions of the game, where the track is known by a different name. This is intentionally included for online play purposes.
  • The Bouncing Notes found near the end of the course greatly resemble the Be-Bops found in Wii Music.
