Mario Kart Stadium
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopediaJump to navigationJump to search
Mario Kart Stadium is the first race track in the Mushroom Cup of Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It is a basic circuit taking place in an autodrome stadium full of advertisements and banners of the players with fireworks in the background. The course also has a big city in the background. This is the first course to be named after the Mario Kart series itself. This course also makes Mario Kart 8 the second game in the series (excluding the arcade games) where the first course in the game is not named a "Circuit" (the first being Mario Kart 64), despite the overall design still being a circuit-type track.
Part of this course's music is reused for the theme of Mario Circuit, albeit in a different arrangement, making Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe the only games in the series where the first course does not share music with another course. This course's music reappears in Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit as the music for Live Circuit.
The course begins with a short straightaway followed by a right turn. The track then turns right with three colored paths that stay together: an inner blue path, a yellow path in the center that says "Mushroom Cup" on it, and an outer red path with Dash Panels and coins. The track then approaches the anti-gravity part followed by a left turn. Next, the course goes up and down a raised hairpin turn, followed by a gliding area, and one more left turn to the finish line.
It is the only course in the Mushroom Cup to not have an underwater section.
