Sherbet Land (spelled Sherbert Land on a few occasions[1][2]) is the second race course of the Star Cup in Mario Kart 64. Penguins litter the track, causing spin-outs if a racer hits them. A player can cut a corner by hopping over a small crevice in some spots, but risks falling into the ice-cold water below. A cave with many penguins marks the halfway point of the track. Sherbet Land returns in Mario Kart Wii as the first race of the Banana Cup. This track shares the same music with Frappe Snowland.

Mario Kart Wii[edit]

Sherbet Land reappears in Mario Kart Wii as the first course of the Banana Cup. Minor changes have been made to the track, including the addition of a trick ramp near the hidden item boxes, and the addition of Dash Panels inside the cave. Inside the cave, a sound can be heard, lowering the music of the circuit. When the player crosses the finish line to begin the next lap, Lakitu is shown on the left side of the player, holding the lap count signs.


A tournament took place on this course. It was a GP race, which added more penguins, and crates were also added. It was the first tournament of February 2010.

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games[edit]

In Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, Sherbet Land appears in the game for the Dream Curling event, which is played out similarly to bowling.

  • Instruction manual: "A very slippery world of ice populated by very playful penguins. With all the penguins, one might think its location is near the South Pole. This is not a course for the faint of heart. You should take care not to slip and fall into the sea, which will result in you being temporarily frozen."
  • Website: "Another icy track, you'll have to watch out for roving Penguins on this course."

Mario Kart Wii[edit]

  • Websites
    • Flag of USA.png "This classic - made of slippery surface, belly-sliding penguins, and sharp turns - is almost entirely unchanged."
    • Flag of Europe.png "Drift your way across a slippery glacier and avoid plunging into the icy water as you race towards an ice cavern filled with meandering penguins."

  • In Mario Kart Wii, the player can get to the giant Penguin's ice platform by hopping off the ice and using a Bullet Bill. However, once the player reaches the platform, Lakitu immediately takes the racer back to the road.
    • Also, if a POW Block or Lightning is used, the penguin on the platform will be affected.
    • It is also possible to get to the giant Penguin's ice platform in Mario Kart 64, but it is only possible in multiplayer mode. One player must be a heavyweight character and the other lightweight. The lightweight character should position themselves towards the island, and the heavyweight should back up into the wall, then use a Star and ram into the other player to send them flying to the island.
  • In Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, Sherbet Land's song is listed as being from Mario Kart Wii, despite it originating from Mario Kart 64.
