Mount Wario is the fourth and final race track in the Star Cup of Mario Kart 8. This course takes place on a mountain summit and ski resort themed after Wario, where players must race from the top to the bottom (similar to DK Summit in Mario Kart Wii and DK Mountain in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!). This is one of the three tracks in the game (the others being N64 Rainbow Road and Big Blue) to be divided into three sections rather than three laps. Mount Wario, along with Big Blue, is one of the only two courses in the Mario Kart series to not be a looped race course, so when the racer finishes the race, they will simply sit at the end of the course.
The course is a three section race down a snowy mountain, split between three sections (like Wuhu Loop, Maka Wuhu, and Rainbow Road from Mario Kart 7, the remake of Rainbow Road from Mario Kart 64, and Big Blue in Mario Kart 8).
Segment one starts in a large plane hovering over the top of the mountain, with the racers driving off a ramp before landing on a path at the summit of the mountain. After a few icy downhill turns, the course enters a cave, as well as passes the checkpoint marking the start of the second segment.
Segment two starts inside the cave, with two anti-gravity sections ending with a hang-glider segment. Two flat rocks with boost pads are placed just after, before a boost ramp leads the racers into a hydroelectric dam. After two 90° turns, there is another anti-gravity section with racers driving along the side of the dam, with boost pads going down the streams (like in Shy Guy Falls).
After that, racers soon enter a snowy forest, that splits into two paths to start off. These two paths meet up to an area with rocks sticking out of the snow, which can provide a boost via tricks. Eventually, the track exits the forest and reaches the top of a chairlift inside a ski area, as well as the checkpoint for the start of segment three.
Segment three starts by traveling down a slalom and mogul course, with cheering Toads, Yoshis, and Shy Guys alongside the track. After a few turns, racers enter the final anti-gravity section, which goes down a ski jumping ramp with boost pads placed on various parts of the ramp. The section ends with a hang-glider section off the jump, where three boost rings are placed to help racers out. After two more turns at the landing area, the track reaches the finish line.
