Ice Ice Outpost

Ice Ice Outpost is a race course included with The Legend of Zelda × Mario Kart 8 downloadable content in Mario Kart 8 and in the base content of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It is the third course in the Triforce Cup. The course takes place in an outpost surrounded within a group of large icebergs with a built yellow and green road. Many Toads in coats are seen at the starting line with many tents, containers and other equipment used for drilling oil. The music for this course appears as a track in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
The course starts on a green and yellow road between two flat icebergs with Toads and building equipment. It immediately leads to a set of item boxes before the track splits into a green and a yellow path. After a slow curve to the left, the left (green) path goes over the yellow path before a wide U-turn to the left. In the process, the yellow path goes over the green before settling into one path entering an iceberg tunnel.
The road then turns right where a shortcut can be taken to cut off the turn. After the turn, players can take a shortcut on a narrow iceberg by dropping off to the left of the path. After the road curves slightly turn to the left, the green path drops off which grants players a trick.
The path continues on before players go into anti-gravity mode where the path splits again. After alternating heights, the paths intertwine again while they turn more sharp to the left with a steep incline which leads to a glider pad. The players glide and touch down on the road which leads to one more right turn leading back to the finish line. Small icebergs are found on the corner of the turn to act as a shortcut to cut off the turn.
Mario Kart 8 Original Soundtrack liner notes
"The main feature of this course's design is that it has two separate but intersecting roads. I wanted to bring this across in the music with both a melody line and a separate obbligato line. The drum sound centered on the tom-toms gives the sense of discovering an unknown land."
