Vanilla Lake 1 is the third course of the Star Cup in the game Super Mario Kart. It was subsequently reused in Mario Kart: Super Circuit as the first track in the Extra Star Cup. It is a short course taking place on a frozen lake.

Super Mario Kart[edit]

The slippery ground makes it harder to control the kart. At the edge of the track, the lake is snow-covered; driving here will slow the kart down. There are many obstacles along the way, such as pipes, and at some parts of the track, the ice is broken and exposes water. In addition, there are many ice block tiles blocking the way, which break if bumped into to.

Mario Kart: Super Circuit[edit]

The course reappears in Mario Kart: Super Circuit and is the first track in the Extra Star Cup. It uses the background from Snow Land. The pipe hazards are removed from the track, and an extra Item Box is added on the left side of the small pool.

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

The course reappears as a Retro Course for the first time in Mario Kart Tour, debuting in the Ice Tour; it is favored by Lemmy, Ice Mario, and Penguin Luigi. In this rendition, most of the snow blocks were removed, a Glide Ramp was added left of the now-first Item Box set, the walls within the course are thinner, and the wall to the right of the second set of Item Boxes (which replace most of the second set of snow blocks) has a break in it, as well as another Item Box.

Due to the Vanilla Lake setting returning in this game for the first time (besides its Mario Kart: Super Circuit reappearance), this track and Donut Plains 1 are the only Super Mario Kart courses to retain their original music, rather than reusing a cover from a later Mario Kart game. It is also one of the few retro tracks that do not appear in Mario Kart 7.

Ice Tour[edit]

In the Ice Tour, Vanilla Lake 1 is one of the two signature courses of the Ice Tour, the other being Frappe Snowland. It appears as the first course in the Lemmy Cup, the second course in the Wario Cup, and the location of the challenges in the Koopa Troopa Cup, the Larry Cup, and the Pauline Cup. It also has a Reverse variant which appears as the third course in the Rosalina Cup and the second course of the Baby Luigi Cup, as well as a Trick variant which appears as the second course of the Luigi Cup and the third course in the Bowser Jr. Cup.
