Frappe Snowland is a racetrack, first appearing in the Flower Cup of Mario Kart 64 on the Nintendo 64, then returning as a course in the Retro Courses in Mario Kart DS and in the Ice and Valentine Tours of Mario Kart Tour. It takes place in a softly snowing region of hills. Its obstacles include many snowmen scattered around the edges of the course. There is also a giant snow statue of Mario and one of Yoshi. This course shares its music with Sherbet Land. The course was available in Wi-Fi.

Course layout[edit]

The map of the course in Mario Kart DS

Players start in a snowy road, which immediately makes a ninety degree turn to the right, and then a turn to the left, which then leads players to a row of Item Boxes. Snowmen appear as obstacles in this point that slow players down if run into. Players then pass a Yoshi statue and then make a U-turn to the left, which leads players into a ramp. Failure to cross the ramp leads players into a river of water.

After the ramp, the road stretches and a large group of snowmen, plus a Mario statue reside there. This makes it a little bit tricky to navigate through without slowing down or getting hit by a snowman. After the large group of snowmen, players make a sharp left turn, then a right while avoiding two more snowmen. When players pass the snowmen, they proceed to a straight road, with cliff walls instead of snow to slow them down. If players try to drive up the cliff, they are returned to the track by Lakitu.

In the cliff area, a bunch of item boxes can be found; they are the last ones before the finish line. Past the item boxes is a U-turn to the left, which leads into a curvier road. The curvier road then makes a right turn, and past the wooden bridge is the finish line where the track repeats itself.

In its Mario Kart Tour appearance, the Mario and Yoshi snowmen now look more lifelike and a glide ramp shortcut was added in behind the glaciers. The course is favored by Peach (Wintertime).

Profiles[edit]

Mario Kart 64[edit]

  • Instruction booklet bio: "A frigid course under constant snowfall. Naturally, the road is slippery. The snowmen you see might look cute, but run into one and you will crash. Don't get too close!"
  • Website bio: "Look out for snowmen on the course in this icy track."[1]

Mario Kart DS[edit]

  • Instruction booklet and US website bio: "This popular Mario Kart 64 track returns with its snow-covered road. The snowmen that block the path will knock you over if you hit them."
  • European website bio: "You'd better make sure you've had your triple-shot mocha-choca frappe-latte before you start this race, as you'll need something to ward off the cold and and keep your senses sharp. Also, look out for the pesky snowman and Mario's ice sculpture (he's such a show-off)."

Trivia[edit]

  • The giant snow walls in this stage seem to be based off of the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route in the Japanese City of Toyama, due to excess snowfall requiring the walls to be made so the highways can be used.
