Wario Shipyard (known as Wario's Galleon in the British English version) is the second course of the Star Cup in Mario Kart 7. The course later returns in Mario Kart Tour starting from the Wario vs. Waluigi Tour. The course is owned by Wario and takes place inside of a sunken pirate ship in stormy weather.

Course layout[edit]

The starting line of the course

The course starts in a dry chamber. After a short straight path there is a left turn leading the player to an underwater area divided into two roads, one rising off the pond. After some ramps, the racers enter a short tunnel styled as a giant Fish Bone (some Fish Bones swim through this tunnel on the second lap). On the other side of it, there are water currents coming out of Warp Pipes. A huge pipe blows the karts up to the next area of the circuit.

The next road features a mud pit, complete with ship masts and a Barrel, which releases a Banana, a Mushroom, a Green Shell, and rarely, a Star upon contact. A swinging anchor is found just before a shipyard. The road splits into two short paths. As they merge again, the players should avoid two Sidesteppers and barrels.

A glider ramp takes the racers to a big area above the lake, where they should avoid hitting topsails and anchors. This area is followed by two roads: the higher one containing coins and Dash Panels, while the lower one being empty. The finish line is set right after both roads merge into one.

When playing local or online multiplayer, the Sidesteppers, the Barrels, the coins near the Warp Pipes, all but one Fish Bones and one swinging anchor are removed.

The course features several references to previous courses and games. Minecarts filled with gold appear when the player boards the ship, which likely references Wario's Gold Mine. The music track of this course also incorporates the introduction of the main theme from Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3. The course is possibly an homage, as the game features a pirate theme, and Bull Wario (a form from that game) can be seen in one of the course's billboards. A rearranged excerpt of the Mario Kart 7 battle theme can also be heard just before the song loops.


  • By using a Mushroom the player can cut through the mud before the split paths.
  • An unintended shortcut can be performed near the end of the course by gliding hard right and using a Mushroom to land just before the finish line, skipping the final turn.[1]
  • An extremely difficult shortcut can be performed using the air-blowing pipe. By leaning back off the edge to gain an upwards angle, using a Mushroom and then using another in the air, it is possible to skip the entire shipwreck and land on the other side.[2]

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

The course in Mario Kart Tour

Wario Shipyard returns as a classic course in Mario Kart Tour as the featured course of the Wario vs. Waluigi Tour. The artwork of Bull Wario is now found at the entrance of the sunken ship instead of at the exit and there is no longer lightning in the sky. The corner shortcut at the end of the course on the right side has also been removed. The anchors on the course swing slightly faster than in the original and the rightside up pipe that blows a current is no longer visible on the course map. The current blown out from the giant pipe now allows the player to perform a Jump Boost.

Like most other courses, Wario Shipyard has a reverse variant referred to as Wario Shipyard R, a trick variant known as Wario Shipyard T, and a reverse and trick variant known as Wario Shipyard R/T, which debuted in the Samurai Tour. Water Geysers are added in the final section of the T variant. The R and R/T variants have gliding ramps after leaving the tunnel. This course is a favorite of Wario (Cowboy), Chargin' Chuck, Mario (Halloween), Penguin Mario, Yoshi (Kangaroo), Mario (Satellaview), Penguin Toadette, and the King Boo Mii Racing Suit. It can also be a favorite of Peach (Yukata) if she is at level 3, Mario (Samurai) and the King Bob-omb Mii Racing Suit if they are at level 6, and Daisy (Swimwear) if she is at level 8.
