Shy Guy Falls is the fourth and final course in the Flower Cup of Mario Kart 8. It takes place in a cliffside area with two waterfalls. Shy Guys can be seen mining throughout the course while players drive up and down on waterfalls in an anti-gravity section. While in the mine section between the waterfall and the finish line, the Shy Guys can be heard using pick axes and singing along to the music. There are 50 Coins located on this track.

Course layout[edit]

The course begins in a crystal mine created by Shy Guys. After a left turn followed by a right turn, an anti-gravity section begins, which turns the course sideways. This is followed by a jump over the first waterfall, and a left turn onto and up the second waterfall, where there are many Boost Pads. The track then turns into a wooden path and makes a left turn onto and down the first waterfall. After driving down the waterfall, there is a gliding section leading to the next part of the track. If the player pulls their glider up, a higher path can be taken, which then jumps back to the main path. After, the track turns slightly to the left, through a small mine where the Shy Guys are working, then to the right, and is followed by two jumps. After the jumps, the player makes a right turn which leads to the finish line.

Shortcuts[edit]

  • Before the first waterfall, there is a turn that one can cut off if one uses a speed boosting item.
  • Before the finish line, one can cut off the final turn by using a Mushroom or a Star.
  • After the gliding section, the player can take a shortcut by boosting through some grass and taking a jump onto a path which then joins up with the main path.
