Vancouver Velocity is a race track in Mario Kart Tour. It is named after and inspired by Vancouver, Canada, and makes its debut in the city's namesake tour, the Vancouver Tour. The course also appears as Vancouver Velocity R (Reverse variant), Vancouver Velocity T (Variant with ramps), and Vancouver Velocity R/T (Reverse variant with ramps). The course is a favorite of Birdo (Light Blue), Ice Bro, Rosalina (Aurora), and Dry Bones (Gold).
In the standard layout, the racers start the course in a street next to the Vancouver Convention Centre, with the Vancouver Olympics cauldron up ahead on the right. After driving underneath the Olympics cauldron, players can see Stanley Park (referred to as "Vancouver Park" on signage) with a little concessions building on the left and a suspension bridge area on the right, where numerous Swoops reside. After players make a sharp turn right onto the suspension bridge itself, they must make an S-curve on the bridge to a glider ramp, which takes them back behind the Convention Centre where Science World is visible in the background. Afterwards, taking a right turn brings the players to the street where the finish line awaits them. Goombas also appear in this course.
In the Vancouver Tour, Vancouver Velocity served as the tour's signature course. It appeared as the first course in the Rosalina Cup, the second course in the Lakitu Cup, the location of the bonus challenges in the Mario Cup, the Donkey Kong Cup, the Pauline Cup, and the Peachette Cup, and the location of the tour's Coin Rush. Its T variant appeared as the second course in the Baby Rosalina Cup and the third course in the Diddy Kong Cup, its R variant appeared as the third course in the King Boo Cup and the first course in the Wario Cup, and its R/T variant appeared as the second course in the Dry Bowser Cup and the third course in the Peachette Cup.
