Peach Castle is a race track in Mario Kart Arcade GP DX. This track appears as the 1st and 3rd rounds of the Toad Cup, while Kingdom Way appears as the 2nd and 4th rounds of the same cup. The layout of this track is generally the same and based off the first Yoshi Park Course from Mario Kart Arcade GP 2 in the Yoshi Cup; but the theme of the track is significantly different from that game.

Course layout[edit]

This course starts off with an upward slope. After a while it leads to two Warp Pipes. This course leads to the left Warp Pipe. After, it leads to the Glider Pad. After gliding, the players will race on the drive-able water. After a while, they cross a bridge over the Kingdom Way race course, then they enter the castle.

Inside the castle contains artwork of Toad, Yoshi and other Mario characters that pop out of present boxes in a similar manner to jack-in-the-boxes. The player doesn't last long in here, as they will soon exit the castle via a Dash Panel and a Warp Pipe to the south end of the course.

At the south end of the course after the Warp Pipe comes the slight left turn to the starting line which is one lap of the course. Various Toads cheer for the drivers at the starting line.

This course contains scenery mostly based on objects and landmarks from Super Mario Bros..

Number of Laps[edit]

The racers do 2 laps in this track to finish a race. However in earlier versions of Mario Kart Arcade GP DX (such as the first two images of the gallery below) this track had 3 laps. The other course in the same cup also has 2 laps, despite this course being shorter than the other course.
