Luigi Circuit (Wii)
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
Luigi Circuit is the starting track of the Mushroom Cup in Mario Kart Wii. It features a long boosted turn which was featured in both previous console versions. It seems to be styled similar to New Super Mario Bros., sharing the same colored hills. There are several signs all along the track saying Luigi and Luigi Kart. A fence exists to prevent players from going too far from the track. This track can be considered the easiest in the game, because of its simplicity and lack of any hazards. Luigi Circuit also appears in the end credits in a sunset version, after winning the Special Cup or the Lightning Cup. The second part of the credits theme is a remix of this track's theme.
The track starts out in front of a massive stand of bleachers with Toads, Hammer Bros., Shy Guys, Birdos, Goombas, Monty Moles, Boos, and Miis cheering on racers with Luigi's Hat Emblem from the Mario Kart 64 version of the track. On the right, a garage building can be seen. At the end of the first straight a giant statue of Luigi can be seen with Miis standing in front of it. When playing as a Mii, Luigi's head is replaced with that of a Mii.
After the first turn, racers will see the Cheep Cheep balloon taking off from the middle platform of a lake. This balloon is a staple of the Mario Kart series long missing since the Nintendo 64 incarnation, on the right, then the road turns to the right two times. There is a long straight before a slight left turn and the final right turn in front of the bleachers. It has many boost panels in a row similar to Double Dash!! with a giant statue of Luigi's hat. The last part of the track is a short straight to the finish line.
There are two Staff Ghosts in Luigi's Circuit. One is available from the start and has a time of 1:29.670, using Luigi in the Sprinter. The second ghost is unlocked if the player gets a time of 1:26.394 or less; this ghost's time is 1:19.419, using Luigi on the Mach Bike.
Luigi Circuit had three different tournaments that took place.
The first Luigi Circuit tournament was a karts only and Wii Wheel only GP race, with no items appearing at all. It took place as the second tournament of October 2008, and it was repeated as the second tournament of October 2010.
The second Luigi Circuit tournament took place during a sunset (as in the credits). It was a GP race, but with no restrictions. The Bomb-Cars from Moonview Highway appeared on the track as well. This tournament was the first tournament of May 2009.
The third Luigi Circuit tournament was the same as the first. However, it used bikes only instead of Karts. It took place as the first tournament of March 2010.
