Sweet Sweet Canyon is the third race course of the Mushroom Cup in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Similar to Cookie Land from Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and Tart Top from Mario Kart DS, this course takes place in a land filled with pastry confections and desserts, including cakes, cookies, ice creams, candies, donuts, macarons, and chocolates. Gingerbread Toads can be seen cheering at the start/finish line, and waffle-cone windmills with blades made out of different-colored wafer cookies appear in the background. There are twenty-five Coins located on this track. This course can be seen on some of the posters for Galaxy Air.

Course layout[edit]

The course starts out in a place where gingerbread cookie characters are watching, while Yoshis are situated on the other side, cheering for the racers. The track then enters a cave made out of cookies, followed by a glider cannon that launches the racers onto a cake tower with a soda waterfall. Here, there are traffic cones made out of ice cream cones on a large right turn, and the racers then drive inside orange soda. As the soda section ends, the racers can either choose a blue path or a pink path, both of which are anti-gravity routes that spiral around each other. After the anti-gravity paths meet up again, drivers encounter a number of pink Piranha Plants, hiding inside green Pipes. After a few turns, the racers hit a drop-off before reaching the start-finish line.


  • Just before the tunnel at the start of the course, there is a small section of pink frosting on the right that players can cut through using a Mushroom.
  • On the blue anti-gravity route, players can fall off the track at the chocolate part, and land on the pink anti-gravity route. This shortcut is best performed with a Mushroom.
  • Both of the anti-gravity paths feature a small patch of chocolate frosting where players can use a Mushroom to cut a corner.
  • If one uses a Mushroom, it is possible to drive through the chocolate donut and cut off the final turn before the start-finish line.


Mario Kart 8 Original Soundtrack liner note[edit]

"We wanted a cute and cuddly feel for this candy-filled world, so we wanted to use toy-like sounds along with a light and breezy violin."
