Appearances Mario Kart Tour

The Sunset Balloons are an unlockable glider in Mario Kart Tour. Like the name suggests, they are a variation of the Cloud Glider with a color scheme similar to a sunset and are classified as a tour-exclusive High-End glider. They are the signature glider of Peach (Explorer). Unlike the Cloud Glider, hitting other drivers with Bananas grants more points than usual upon using this glider.

The glider was exclusively obtainable during the Sunset Tour and was part of the first week's spotlight, alongside Peach (Explorer) and the Offroader.
