Tricky's Course (referred to simply as Tricky the Triceratops by the game's website) is the boss course of Dino Domain and the first overall boss course of Diddy Kong Racing and its remake Diddy Kong Racing DS, as well as serving as the fifth overall track in both games. The course is unlocked when the player completes all the courses in Dino Domain. Tricky the Triceratops is raced here.
Tricky's Course is located in a desert valley during sunset. The player races Tricky up a tall, spiral-shaped mountain. Around halfway up the mountain, which cuts directly through to the other side and even contains a Zipper. At the very top, there is a Sphinx-like structure resembling a triceratops and the finish line.
After completing the Silver Coin challenges, the player must rematch Tricky to a race. The rematch is more difficult as Tricky races faster than the previous race. There are also collapsing pillars and rolling boulders and rocks spinning down the course.
The official Diddy Kong Racing website suggested racing as Diddy on this track.
In the Nintendo DS remake, the shortcut no longer exists, although the course is generally easier. The sky is green instead of orange. An optional third challenge involves using the Stylus on the touch screen to race.
