Frappe Snowland (named Frappesuno Land on one occasion[1]) is the second racetrack of the Flower Cup of Mario Kart 64. It takes place in a softly snowing region of hills. Its obstacles include many snowmen scattered around the edges of the course. There is also a giant snow statue of Mario and one of Yoshi. This course shares its music with Sherbet Land.

Frappe Snowland reappears in Mario Kart DS as the second course of the Banana Cup, and in Mario Kart Tour starting from the Ice Tour.

Course layout[edit]

Players start in a snowy road, which immediately makes a ninety degree turn to the right, and then a turn to the left, which then leads players to a row of Item Boxes. Snowmen appear as obstacles in this point that slow players down if run into. Players then pass a Yoshi statue and then make a U-turn to the left, which leads players into a ramp. Failure to cross the ramp leads players into a river of water.

After the ramp, the road stretches and a large group of snowmen, plus a Mario statue reside there. This makes it a little bit tricky to navigate through without slowing down or getting hit by a snowman. After the large group of snowmen, players make a sharp left turn, then a right while avoiding two more snowmen. When players pass the snowmen, they proceed to a straight road, with cliff walls instead of snow to slow them down. If players try to drive up the cliff, they are returned to the track by Lakitu.

In the cliff area, a bunch of item boxes can be found; they are the last ones before the finish line. Past the item boxes is a U-turn to the left, which leads into a curvier road. The curvier road then makes a right turn, and past the wooden bridge is the finish line where the track repeats itself.

Mario Kart DS[edit]

Frappe Snowland returns in Mario Kart DS as the second course of the Banana Cup, and it remains mostly unchanged from its original variant. Frappe Snowland was one of the many courses that were available to play over Wi-Fi.

The ghost data for this course in Time Trials is 2:08:781, and uses Wario in the Brute.


Only one mission takes place at N64 Frappe Snowland:

  • Mission 5-2: Donkey Kong must collect 15 coins in reverse on the stretched road without touching a Snowman.

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

The course in Mario Kart Tour

Frappe Snowland reappears in Mario Kart Tour, starting with the Ice Tour. The Mario and Yoshi snowmen now look more lifelike and a glide ramp shortcut was added in behind the glaciers, a wooden bridge is added after the jump before the snowman section, and the starting banner has been changed to a wooden sign with a blue, three-dimensional Mario Kart logo. Another shortcut has also been added after the Yoshi snowmen, which features several log ramps. This course is a favorite of Pink Shy Guy, Ice Bro, Birdo (Blue), Light-blue Shy Guy, Peach (Wintertime), Baby Rosalina (Detective), Peach (Halloween), White Yoshi, Nabbit, Bowser (Santa), and the Gold Mii Racing Suit. It is also a favorite of Rosalina (Aurora) and Mario (Halloween) if they reach level 3, and Yoshi (Reindeer) and Luigi (Golf) if they reach level 6.

As with other courses in the game, Frappe Snowland has a reversed variant, a trick variant, and a reversed/trick variant referred to as Frappe Snowland R, Frappe Snowland T, and Frappe Snowland R/T respectively, with the latter being added in the Vancouver Tour.

Mario Kart 64[edit]

  • Instruction booklet bio: "A frigid course under constant snowfall. Naturally, the road is slippery. The snowmen you see might look cute, but run into one and you will crash. Don't get too close!"
  • Website bio: "Look out for snowmen on the course in this icy track."[2]

Mario Kart DS[edit]

  • Instruction booklet / American website bio: "This popular Mario Kart 64 track returns with its snow-covered road. The snowmen that block the path will knock you over if you hit them."
  • European website bio: "You'd better make sure you've had your triple-shot mocha-choca frappe-latte before you start this race, as you'll need something to ward off the cold and and keep your senses sharp. Also, look out for the pesky snowman and Mario's ice sculpture (he's such a show-off)."

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

  • Mario Kart Tour Twitter: "Mario Kart 64 fans might feel warm with nostalgia when they see the Frappe Snowland course in #MarioKartTour. This classic course is complete with slick roads, sheer cliffs, and some familiar faces made of snow! Are you ready to race in this winter wonderland?"[3]
