Music Park (known as Melody Motorway in the British English version) is the third course in the Flower Cup in Mario Kart 7. The course takes place on a winding circuit floating in space, 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. The course reappears in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe as the third course in the Leaf Cup.

Course layout[edit]

The starting area of the course

The course starts off with a road containing trumpets and a large violin. Following this is a piano turn, with two Big Piranha Plants planted near the end and surrounded by circles of light, near which is a small ramp sided with a Note 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 marimba and vibraphone turns, the tambourine appears, acting like a bouncy mushroom. In this section of the track, the walls are adorned with musical staffs.

Then there is a split road containing Bouncing Notes jumping from side to side, and three metronome beats are played just before they hit the ground. After a minute and 52 seconds have passed in the Mario Kart 7 version, they start to jump right after they land. 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. 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.

The banners around the course have the name "Music Park" on them, even in the British English and non-Asian foreign versions of the game where the course's name is or is derived from "Melody Motorway".

Mario Kart 8 / Mario Kart 8 Deluxe[edit]

The course in Mario Kart 8

Music Park returns as a retro course in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe as the third track in the Leaf Cup. There are no changes made to the track layout, but there are several cosmetic changes: The course banner now resembles a guitar neck with strings, and the Mario Kart logo is now multi-colored. The Bouncing Notes now squint when they land, and them speeding up is no longer based on a timer. This time, they do not speed up until the player in 1st place begins the third lap, and they stay on-beat with the new, faster tempo. In the area they are in, the metronome played is louder than before. A few additional coins have also been placed around the track. Small Bouncing Notes have been added at the start/finish line, jumping in time with the music.

Staff ghost[edit]

The staff ghost for this track is Baby Daisy on the Biddybuggy, with a time of 2:24.468. In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe 200cc, the staff ghost is Daisy with a time of 1:36.529.

Mario Kart 8 Original Soundtrack liner notes[edit]

"This is a special version we've come up with for the soundtrack, with some additional sound effects that you hear while going around the track."
