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]

It has been requested that this section be rewritten.

Mario driving in front of Peach's Castle

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 starts on a small straight road and after two turns which a large curve with pink leaves appears. Then the player jumps off of a ramp, landing on a Mushroom Trampoline. Then a similar road to that of Mario Kart DS's Mario Circuit which leads the way up to Peach's Castle. Then the road enters in Peach's Castle and, after a wide turn up the spiral staircase, a Glide Ramp enables the driver to fly out of the castle. Then a number of pipes appear that shoot out air, along with some Goombas. A very long, large pipe similar to the ones from Mario Kart 64 and Mario Kart DS appears, in which drivers must drive through in a curve leading them back to a long road going back to the finish.

The falling flower petals from the trees are intended to serve as a 3D effect of the Nintendo 3DS. When 3D mode is activated, the falling petals appear to "pop out" of the screen.

Shortcuts[edit]

  • After the first turn, players can use a Mushroom to hit a ramp to the right in the grass.
  • Players can also use a Mushroom to cut some off the grass on the corner before the mushroom pad.
  • Before Peach's Castle, there are some ramps in the grass.
  • After gliding out of the castle, players can veer left and hit a ramp to save some time.
  • Players can also glide and land on the rail to the left and drive along it to the pipe.

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

The course icon in Mario Kart Tour

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), and Mario (Racing). 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.
