Mario Circuit is the second course of the Flower Cup in Mario Kart 7. It is strongly based off the Mario Kart DS version of the track. Unlike other Mario Circuit tracks, where Peach's Castle is a background element, this course allows players to drive through the castle. This rendition of Mario Circuit returns in Mario Kart Tour, where it appears in tours starting with the Tokyo Tour. This track shares its music with Toad Circuit.

This is the only Flower Cup course in Mario Kart 7 to not have a different name in British English versions.

Course layout[edit]

The track takes place on a large grassy field with sand roads, Mushroom Trampolines, pipes, blossoming peach trees, a lake, and Peach's Castle. The course begins with a small, straightforward path with two turns, after which pink flower petals begin falling out of the trees. Activating the 3D effect of the Nintendo 3DS gives the effect of the petals popping out of the screen. After a ramp, the racers bounce off Mushroom Trampolines toward Peach's Castle, which they then enter. After a spiral staircase, a Glide Ramp launches the drivers out of the castle into an area where pipes blow out wind and Goombas appear. Following is a very large pipe the drivers must curve through to reach the finish line after one small bump in the road.

There are a number of shortcuts available for this track. Between the first and second turns, drivers may use Mushrooms to use a ramp in the middle of the grass. Mushrooms can also be used to cut grass on the corner before the Mushroom Trampolines. There are two additional ramps in front of Peach's Castle. There is yet another ramp to the left when the racers exit the castle, and a rail to the left along the pipe, both of which save some time.

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

Mario Circuit returns in Mario Kart Tour. Some changes have been made to the track: Peach's Castle has been redesigned, the entrance to the castle now has doors leading into the looping ramp. The starting line has a new look that resembles a garden gate. This course is a favorite of Red Koopa (Freerunning), Peachette, Peach (Kimono), Mario (Happi), Baby Peach (Cherub), Mario (Racing), and Mario (Baseball). It is also a favorite of Pink Gold Peach if she is at level 3 and Peach (Vacation) if she is at level 6.

Trivia[edit]

  • In an early trailer of Mario Kart 7, when Mario Circuit was shown, there was originally a Mushroom Trampoline in the pit which players would normally glide over, due to gliders not having yet been implemented.
  • The blossoming peach trees in this track were later reused for N64 Royal Raceway in Mario Kart 8.
