Bowser's Castle

Bowser's Castle is a race course in Mario Kart 7 which seems to have the structure of a Haunted Mansion. It has cobwebs, lava pillars, Thwomps, and stairs. This course, as some previous others, is the third race in the Special Cup.

The second portion of this course's music covers the Bowser's Castle theme from Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

Course layout[edit]

The start of the course

This course starts off on a separate platform with a ramp to glide into Bowser's Castle. There are two entrances, an upper level and a lower level if the upper level is missed while gliding. The two levels have a set of stairs with Thwomps and inclining slopes that lead into one room filled with lava pools and sharp turns. Past that room is a wide wooden rotating tunnel that ends by a lake filled with water, some pipes pouring lava, and lava-filled edges. Afterward, racers return to land on a mountain side passing by lava waterfalls as the racers drive up the mountain. At the end of the mountain is a sharp wide turn that ends with a ramp and drivers will glide to the finish line in the air and land on the entrance to continue the race.

This is the only Bowser's Castle course in the Mario Kart series with normal water, although the purple moat in Bowser's Castle from Mario Kart: Double Dash!! acts like water.

When the player enters the castle, Bowser's laugh can be heard, similar to the Bowser's Castle courses from Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and Mario Kart Wii.
