Twisted Mansion is the third race track in the Flower Cup of Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. This course is a large haunted mansion inhabited by many Boos, and as such it can be considered as a spiritual successor of Luigi's Mansion from Mario Kart DS. There are fifty-one Coins located on this track.

Course layout[edit]

The course as seen from the starting line.

At the starting line, the player starts in the courtyard, where a large statue of Boohemoth can be seen. As the race starts, the door will slowly creak open. Once the player drives inside, they drive into an anti-gravity section that leads through the dining room. At the dining room, the track splits and the player can drive on either wall, after which anti-gravity ends. The player then goes through a library, and into another anti-gravity segment, traveling into an underwater corridor through an arch shaped like Bouldergeist's head. The underwater section eventually splits into two paths,where Fish Bones can be seen. The upper route leads to a higher boost pad than the lower. Both end in a glider segment across a courtyard similar to the one in Luigi's Mansion. If the players take the upper route, they can land on a balcony and take a shorter route, whereas the lower one must climb a flight of stairs. They then exit the house, which leaves the final stretch to the finish line. Here, some hammer-wielding knight statues being possessed by Boos attack.

Shortcuts[edit]

  • After the first split path anti-gravity section, there is a dirt section, through the aisle in the library, that the player can boost through with a Mushroom, Golden Mushroom or Stars.
  • At the end of the course, using a type of boost, the player can bypass the hammer wielding knights and the final turn.

Trivia[edit]

  • During the countdown to the race, the doors at the entrance of the mansion open up. This is one of five courses (the others being Mount Wario, Electrodrome, Bowser's Castle, and Excitebike Arena) to have an opening animation during the countdown.
  • If any of the armored statues possessed by Boos at the end of track is knocked by a Spiny Shell, Star, Bullet Bill or Super Horn, the Boo will shout in pain.
  • This is one of the three courses (along with Mario Circuit and Toad Harbor) that were playable at E3 2013. Coincidentally, all three take place in the Flower Cup, in the same order as the original demo.
    • This track was originally called "Boo House" during E3 2013.
  • When racing online, the Boos that appear at the glider portion of this track are removed.
