Los Angeles Laps 2
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopediaJump to navigationJump to search
Los Angeles Laps 2 is a race course in Mario Kart Tour, debuting in the 2022 Los Angeles Tour. Named after Los Angeles, California, it takes drivers through an oil extraction field similar to the Los Angeles City Oil Field and the Inglewood Oil Field. Despite being labeled as Los Angeles Laps 2, the course was released after Los Angeles Laps 3, making it the third playable variation of the Los Angeles Laps course. This course is a favorite of Mario (Swimwear), Mario (Baseball), Mario (Golf), King Bob-omb (Gold), Waluigi (Vampire), and Chargin' Chuck.
The course begins in a different location from Los Angeles Laps, this time, the starting line is located on a road away from Santa Monica Pier. This is due to this route's layout not involving the pier in any way, unlike the first route. Following a left turn, racers drive towards the Inglewood Oil Field. Taking a slight left turn brings them into the oil field, where there are multiple forks in the road. Each route features pumpjacks as obstacles. Players take a U-turn to the left to continue through the oil field, avoiding two more pumpjacks and a large water tower. A sharp right takes the racers back into the main city streets, where they cross a bridge on a long straightaway, before taking one last left turn back to the starting line.
