New York Minute 3
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopediaJump to navigationJump to search
New York Minute 3 is a race course in Mario Kart Tour. It is named after and inspired by New York City, New York set in nighttime, and made its debut in the 1st Anniversary Tour as the featured course of the tour. This is due to New York being the theme of the game's first tour. The course also appears as New York Minute 3R (reverse), New York Minute 3T (with ramps), and New York Minute 3R/T (reverse and with ramps). The course is a favorite of Pauline, Pauline (Party Time), Mario (SNES), Waluigi (Bus Driver), and Dry Bones (Gold).
In the standard layout, all of the racers start the course in front of Times Square. Just after the starting line, the road bends in a slight curve to the right through Broadway and ends in a bridge that leads into Central Park. In the park, the road takes a sharp turn to the left and circles back under the bridge where the racers entered the park. After the bridge, the road continues straight until it turns sharply to the right back into the city. There, the players pass the Rockefeller Center and enter 30 Rockefeller Plaza. After this, racers follow a tunnel where they can see the Statue of Liberty. After a light turn to the left, they arrive at the finish line. In New York Minute 3R, this layout is reversed.
