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 the latter uses Spaceport Alpha's theme in the DS version, Spaceport Alpha itself getting a new theme in that version. Future Fun Land serves as the only world to not have its own Challenge Level.

To unlock this world, the player must first finish all four Trophy Races while ranked first and complete 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 is then launched into orbit, revealing a pad that transports the player to Future Fun Land.


For courses where two or all three vehicles can be used, vehicles listed in bold print are the mandated vehicle during Adventure Mode and the Trophy Race, and other vehicles the player can only use if the Time Trial is enabled or after the player finishes the course.

Spacedust Alley, from Diddy Kong Racing.
Spacedust Alley
Golden Balloon: × 39 (race)
Golden Balloon: × 43 (Silver Coin/Balloon Pop Challenge)
Car, Hovercraft, Plane 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, from Diddy Kong Racing.
Darkmoon Caverns
Golden Balloon: × 40 (race)
Golden Balloon: × 44 (Silver Coin/Balloon Pop Challenge)
Car, Hovercraft 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 (although the beams were removed in Diddy Kong Racing DS). 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. It is the only course where racers cannot fly in planes.
Spaceport Alpha, from Diddy Kong Racing.
Spaceport Alpha
Golden Balloon: × 41 (race)
Golden Balloon: × 45 (Silver Coin/Balloon Pop Challenge)
Car, Hovercraft, Plane 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.
Star City, from Diddy Kong Racing.
Star City
Golden Balloon: × 42 (race)
Golden Balloon: × 46 (Silver Coin/Balloon Pop Challenge)
Car, Hovercraft, Plane 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.
Wizpig Strikes Back.png
Boss race:
Wizpig Strikes Back
Golden Balloon: × 47 and all four T.T. amulet pieces Plane 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 the Adventure 2 mode.

Player's Guide:

  • "Just when you thought it was safe for you and your friends to celebrate Wizpig's defeat, ol' bacon-breath had to crash your party. He may have rocketed back to his home planet, but that doesn't mean your racing days are over. He invaded your world; now it's your turn to invade his. Race through his futuristic sci-fi planet to settle the score."
