DK Jungle (3DS)

DK Jungle is the first race course in the Special Cup of Mario Kart 7 and takes place on Donkey Kong Island. The course is based on Donkey Kong Country Returns. Some elements and enemies of this game make their appearance in this course, like Tiki Goons, Screaming Pillars and DK's Tree House. The soundtrack is a rearrangement of Jungle Hijinxs from Donkey Kong Country.
The track passes through a thick jungle, where some DK Barrels appear. Exiting into a clearing, drivers bounce on a large, red flower from Donkey Kong Country Returns, and land in a path near waterfalls and a lake. The track then makes a left hand turn, past DK's Tree House, and some Tiki Goons that move across the track. The track reenters the canopy, passing by multiple Frogoons, before traveling across a chasm and entering the Golden Temple. After a right turn and a left-hand U-turn, racers drive past the gold banana, then glide over a lake flanked by several Screaming Pillars. These Pillars will scream every once in a while, shooting out air to blow back hanggliding players. Finally they land and make a left turn back to the finish line. Also in the background of the course is Tiki Pilot's airship-like craft from Donkey Kong Country Returns.
Mario Kart 8 / Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
DK Jungle returns in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe as the final course in the Banana Cup. The track map is rotated 90 degrees clockwise. Some objects are changed and replaced; the Barrel at the right of the start is now on the left, and the mud near the beginning of the track is absent. The starting banner has also been replaced. The Screaming Pillars now exhale smoke when they are screaming, and the Tiki Goons have had their movement speed severely reduced. A number of lit torches have been added inside the Golden Temple. The only change made to the track layout is that the U-turn inside the Golden Temple is now slanted upward and acts as an anti-gravity section. Consequently, there is now a dropoff at the Golden Banana allowing drivers to do an aerial trick. The first left turn before the finish line also has a gap in it.
Unlike other retro tracks, the music remains the same as the original like Wii Grumble Volcano, with a slightly enhanced bit depth.
