Shy Guy Beach is the second race course of the Mushroom Cup in Mario Kart: Super Circuit. It reappears as a retro track in Mario Kart Wii.

Course layout[edit]

While there are no Shy Guys on the beach, there is a Pirate Guy pirate ship that can be seen in the background.

Crabs litter the beach, making karts spin out on contact. Parasols open and close (and vice-versa) when players bump into them. Shallow water causes racers to slow down while deep water completely submerges karts. The course is somewhat based on Shy Guy's Ship from Yoshi's Story because of the card board affect, and Pirate Guys are seen.

Mario Kart Wii[edit]

Shy Guy Beach in Mario Kart Wii.

Shy Guy Beach returns in Mario Kart Wii. It is the second track in the Banana Cup. It is entirely remade to be 3D instead of 2D. Also, the course map was updated meaning that empty areas on the insides of the course map are the grasslands, while the filled in areas are sand. Also, the cannonballs launched from the pirate ship explodes after a few seconds (similar to that of the Bob-omb and Spiny Shell).

Changes from the original[edit]

  • More Palm trees, parasols, and Sidesteppers were added at a few places.
  • A banner was added above the starting line.
  • Attacks from the pirate ship in the background are now more destructive; the cannonballs now stick into the ground and explode, sending the player flying in the air like a Bob-omb instead of spinning out. When the player hits a cannonball in Time Trials, the cannonball won't explode.
  • When the player falls into the deep water areas, they will be instantly rescued by Lakitu.
  • Parasols can be eliminated with Shells, Bob-ombs, or while the player is invincible, but will return after a short period of time. They also open and close under the effects of the POW Block.

Official descriptions[edit]

  • Official European Website: “The sunshine and blue ocean might make you feel like you’re on holiday, but there’s no time to relax – that ship on the horizon is about to start firing cannon balls!”
  • Official Website: “Tough off-road drifting, slowing patches of grass and water, and crossing crabs make for a difficult race.”


After the first turn, if the player use a Mushroom over the dark green grass there is a little spot that's light green. It is effective because it leads right to the shallow water where the small island is.


The Shy Guy Beach tournament.

In Mario Kart Wii, a tournament took place on this track. Players had to take out 30 Sidesteppers with Bob-ombs, Triple Green Shells, or Stars. It was the first tournament of August 2009, and it was later repeated as the second tournament of June 2011, the first tournament of September 2012, and the second tournament of November 2013.
