The Ghost Ride is a High-End kart in Mario Kart Tour. It was introduced in the 2019 Halloween Tour and is the signature vehicle of King Boo (Luigi's Mansion). The kart is designed after a hearse with a grille resembling a scary face. The exhaust pipes come out from the front, similar to the Mini Beast from Mario Kart Wii. The emblem is located on the front, sides, and back of the kart. Its name is a reference to ghost riding, the act of exiting a vehicle while it is still in motion and moving along or, in some cases, dancing on top of it. It uses the Off-Road tires from Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The Ghost Ride increases the duration of Rocket Start boosts and the number of points earned for performing them.

A wedding-themed variant of this kart known as the Happy Ride, which is also classified as a High-End kart, appears in the game starting with the Peach Tour.


The Ghost Rider has only appeared in certain pipes and is not currently a part of the Daily Selects set. The following table shows the kart's availability by tour.
