Future Fun Land is a planet featured in Diddy Kong Racing and its remake Diddy Kong Racing DS. It is the homeworld of Wizpig, and takes place away from Timber's Island. The background music for some of the courses here varies depending on which version the player is in; Star City shares its music with Spacedust Alley in the original while it has a new track in the DS version. Future Fun Land does not have its own Challenge Level, and is the only world without one.

This world can only be accessed if the player wins all four Trophy Races and won the first race against Wizpig. Afterward, they must head toward a billboard in the beach area of Timber's Island. A cutscene then plays, revealing the lighthouse to be a disguised rocket of Wizpig's. The rocket blasts off into space, revealing a pad that transports the player to Future Fun Land.

Race tracks[edit]

Spacedust Alley[edit]

Main article: Spacedust Alley

Spacedust Alley is a course that takes place in a brightly-colored valley, where players travel through tunnels. Obstacles include horizontal lasers, palm trees, and stalagmites and stalactites. The track features a spaceship in the shape of Wizpig's head, which attempts to shoot down racers during one segment of the track. In Diddy Kong Racing DS, the background music that plays in the course is changed to Spaceport Alpha. The default vehicle for this course is the Plane.

Darkmoon Caverns[edit]

Main article: Darkmoon Caverns

Darkmoon Caverns takes place in an enclosed area, featuring many tunnels and craters. In segments of the course, spaceships shoot beams at particular locations, serving as obstacles. The most prominent feature of the course are two large loops at the end of the course, which function similarly to the loop in Walrus Cove. In the credits sequence, for the first time players beat Wizpig, the music from this course is the one that plays. This course is the only course in Future Fun Land where a plane cannot be operated in. In Diddy Kong Racing DS, there are no longer beams.

Spaceport Alpha[edit]

Main article: Spaceport Alpha

Spaceport Alpha has the players drive across narrow corridors. A section of a track has sharp vertical curves that make it tricky for planes to fly in, while cars get propelled upward via a fan. Near the end of a track, a barrage of lasers from many different turrets are shot, making this section a hazard for planes to cross. In Diddy Kong Racing DS, the lasers has been removed and this track's music has been replaced with an original tune, with the original game's tune being moved to Spacedust Alley. The plane is the default vehicle for this course.

Star City[edit]

Main article: Star City

Star City is a metropolis in space. This is the only course that does not have lasers nor any obstacles of any sort, aside from the lamps in the city. The city itself features skyscrapers and 90° turns, making it trickier for cars and hovercrafts to navigate. The default vehicle for this course is the car.

Boss Battle: Wizpig[edit]

Banjo races against Wizpig
Main article: Wizpig Strikes Back

The boss of Future Fun Land is Wizpig, making it the second time that players race against him. The player can only race him if they have all four pieces of the T.T. Amulet. This time, Wizpig rides on a missile rather than challenging racers on foot, so racers use their plane to face-off against him. Wizpig's course features asteroids, robots, laser blasts, and electric fences as their stage hazards. Once players beat Wizpig, they unlock Adventure 2, a new mode that mirrors courses and has different Silver Coin locations.
