Wario Stadium is the second-longest track in Mario Kart 64 and is the first race course of the Star Cup. According to the manual, Wario himself designed and built this track. Wario Stadium has the same music as the three raceways: Luigi Raceway, Mario Raceway, and Royal Raceway.
The track contains several sharp turns and a series of hills and bumps. Wario Stadium is the only track in the series to include a jump which, if failed to clear, will set the player back a good quarter of the track; the jump on Mario Circuit 2 sets the player back only a fifth of the track. In later Mario Kart titles, failing to make these kinds of jumps will have Lakitu bring the player back to the start of the jump.
A glitch enables the player to hop over a wall just after the starting line and end up close to the finish line. A different glitch then can be used to jump over the barrier to just before the finish line, enabling players to cross the finish line while still qualifying as a full lap.
