Best Mario Kart DS Tracks


The Top TenXW

1Waluigi Pinball

This track made you feel you were in a pinball machine. I don't know how Nintendo thought of a pinball machine, but this is one of my favorite Mario Kart Tracks ever! - evil7

I imagined this being a stadium for Mario Super Sluggers. That's how good it is

It's very fun, it's in my top ten tracks for all of Mario Kart, right after GBA Bowser Castle 4, and I love the music.

Definitely my favourite track in Mario Kart DS. How cool is it to drive around a pinball machine?

2Airship Fortress

My favorite track not only in mario kart ds, but of all time. After playing it more recently in mario kart 7, this track never gets old to me. It brings back many great memories of super mario bros 3. The design is also perfect with plenty of tight turns, awesome obstacles and a breathtaking canon ride, as well as very awesome scenery.

This is an awesome track which I often use on VS mode. Just as the previous people said, the music is also very cool. It is one of my favorite tracks. By the way, you could use the cannon to dodge blue shells. In total, this is one of my favorite tracks in Mario Kart DS. - ORIGAMIMASTER1414

My first game was super Mario bros. 3 and bros. 3 best levels was worlds last, airship fortress. This track reminds me. Old good times.

Psychedelic! I love watching how every like three seconds my screen goes dark because i've just fallen off the track! Best track ever!

a classic track from the old old mario kart that I used to play - Flyingmidget12

4Bowser Castle

Bowsers Castle is definitely the best track because it has every thing a mario kart racer would dream of. It has windy roads, thomps that will squish you, moving platforms that if you miss you fall in lava, and of course SHORTCUTS!

Bowser Castle is the best track because other people can fall in the lava and get squashed by thwomps, and their staff is hard to beat.

5Tick-Tock Clock

Tick-Tock Clock is the coolest I got 1:51 as well theres not a better course than this! It's a great idea to use mario 64's stage after the DS version was released it's best and it's no. 1 no matter what

I'm do pro at this, I beat daisy on that staff record... by 3 SECONDS... Time: 1:51 seconds... beat that - SmoothCriminal

TIck Tock Clock in Mario 64 was a great idea, I am so happy they put this as a Mario Kart track

The best map on Mario kart. Nothing to say, this will always be my favorite track!

6Delfino Square

Love the scenery, and it's very easy, quick, and if you
Bump into the random boxes an item might fall out!

7Luigi's Mansion

This track may be short, but it is a lot of fun. You don't spend too much time in the mansion, but the walking trees amazed me when I first played it. This track would be #4 on my list after #1 Waluigi Pinball, #2 Tick Tock Clock, and #3 Airship Fortress.

Fun course! Watch out for the walking trees! Easily the most memorable course!

8Wario Stadium

This is my second favorite course on ds but choco mountain n64 was not on the list

What can I say? This track was absolutely amazing. The jumps, the boosts, the theme, the style- and best of all, the music. Made even better on MKW's custom tracks, and I hope they bring it back as a retro in MK8 (Unless it's already in MK7. Haven't played it yet)

9DK Pass

Easily one of the best! The feeling you get whenn making that massive jump oof the cliff side is amazing! Also it got remade before most of these other tracks, that proves that Nintendo believes it's better. And one more thing, this is the only track in Mario kart history that has a secret mystery box that only gives you single mushrooms triple mushrooms or stars! It deserves higher than 9th

13Cheep Cheep Beach

I don't know why DK Pass is ahead of this track. DK Pass is very boring and I hate it. This race, Cheep Cheep Beach, isn't the best. But it is better than SNES Koopa Beach. The water provides you with a lot of shortcuts.

14Yoshi Falls

Worst nitro track in the entire game. WHY DID THEY BRING IT BACK IN Mario KART WII?!

My god, they completely ruined the spirit of this track in this remake.
Firstly, you don't complete 7 laps. You only have to do 5. Why?
Also, where's the chaos?
And because of hardware limitations, the background doesn't look that interesting.
The Mario Kart 8 remake is way better than this piece of rubbish.

18Shroom Ridge

This is my favorite course in the game and my second favorite course in Mario kart history my favorite is toads factory from Mario kart wii

I didn't really care for this one... way too long for a track with very little cars in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong

They've made this track better,it has a feel to it that can't be replenished in any other track.
