Top 10 Best Mario Kart 7 Tracks

My Favorite Courses from the new game Mario Kart 7! Love this game best 3DS game ever it brings us gliding it brings us newer kart customization. It got a 9.0 on I.G.N. if any of you guys don't know what I'm talking about I.G.N. is a video game website you can also look at TV Shows and movies it gives you cheats and screenshots and video's and walkthrough. Anyway back on topic enjoy my list!

The Top Ten

1 Rainbow Road Rainbow Road

I think it's the best track in Mario Kart 7 and a very strong contender for the best track in the rest of the series. I mean, no other Rainbow Roads hit you right in the feels like this one. The music changes when you're on the moon too to make it sound like something from an Apollo moon landing. This track is perfect, and I want to see a remake in future Mario Kart releases.

This track is the one reason I go back to play Mario Kart 7 sometimes.

This is the best track in the whole Mario Kart series. It's such a great space journey. The song sounds like nostalgia. It's feels really fun and emotional. It's so unique, I mean driving on Saturn's rings and the Moon is astounding. When doing tricks, the sound effect is different.

This is probably the best Rainbow Road ever. You drive on Saturn's rings and on the Moon! Also, this track really emotional and is nostalgic. Unless you have no soul, you will cry at how amazing this track is, and how Nintendo worked on this for so long. And that's not even the bet part. The music is no doubt the best song ever made for Mario Kart.

2 Music Park Music Park

I love this course this is the first course to have music when you are driving it has all those music notes you can glide on top of this course made this game really good - rockrockmountain

Great track but the European name, “melody motorway” is sooo much better

The balance of music in this track is perfect from the sliding down the piano to the bouncing on the drums. A great course with great music

The turns are very fun and they even play notes. I also like the cuteness of the giant music notes with the faces. They make a kind of evil grin when they stomp down which is funny.

3 Rock Rock Mountain Rock Rock Mountain

I tried out Mario kart 7 for a bit and I got rock rock mountain and it's awesome. It takes full advantage of gliding and my favorite part is that you use those boost panels to get to the top while dodging boulders coming down. Amazing.

Read the username it has a lot of glides and fun to do it has serious tricks you can do on the orange boosts This the best course ever to me - rockrockmountain

You have to play in first person mode to avoid the pesky rocks in this track.

This track sucks!

4 Airship Fortress DS

Best retro track in the game, as well as one of the most epic and nostalgic ones - darthvadern

YAY! Super Mario bros 3, my favorite Mario game ever. Brilliant tribute to that game's airship levels and the tracks design is fantastic. One of my favorite tracks of all time next to waluigi pinball. And its even more epic in Mario kart 7!

The better version of the course from when Mario Kart DS came out you have to watch out for Bullet Bills when the course begins - rockrockmountain

They are banzai bills the bigger counterpart to bullet bills

Why are you including Retro Tracks? :/ - thunderstar1124

5 Waluigi Pinball DS

Overrated but I like it more than original - darthvadern

Would be better if you could play as waluigi

I wish they put this in MK8 and put Wario Stadium in MK7

This is my favorite track ever!

6 Maple Treeway

Worse than original but still good - darthvadern

Just a bad version of the WII one!

Wii’s is better.

One of the most awesome courses ever I love the setting the way it is designed with all the trees and the down glide it is so fun this is one of the best courses in this game and still is in Mario Kart Wii - rockrockmountain

7 Maka Wuhu

This is a cool track because I grew up playing the game where this track was inspired from, WII Sports Resort. Also, who doesn't love gliding over a beach.

It is a really great course I love it when you have to glide such a long way and the shortcuts when driving and it's when you are so high up. - rockrockmountain

The shortcuts make this track different from the others You always have to think about what route you're gonna take before you take it.

I can't bear the gliding section at the end. I bearly ever come first

8 Piranha Plant Slide Piranha Plant Slide

I just adore this track and is the best track in the Star Cup by far! The Star Cup in the game was my least favorite cup in the game because the other tracks weren't as good as the rest of the courses in the other cups, but this track is a good example of a timless masterpice track! It's set in the seqwers and you efven go through a big warp pipe, this track has a sort of Super Mario Bros theme, the soudntrack remidns me very much of it, the undergroudn here is pretty blue and yeah, and I hasve to say the remake in MK8 was even better! It feels so much more real in that level! And overall, I think it's my - darthvadern

This is a fun track. My favorite Nitro Course. The music is great, the visuals are cool, the layout and design are awesome, and it's really fun to play on.

How is this not in the top 10 list I loved underground levels it has great music it is challenging and is just very enjoyable

This should be number 1 not including the retro tracks. - cartoonnami

9 Coconut Mall Wii

Love it

A bit underwhelming compared to original bit it's good - darthvadern

It would make perfect sense to put this track in Mario Kart 7 because that HUGE jump at the end would be perfect for gliding.

Welcome to the Mall! This course returns from the Wii, to kill. This course is a winner!

10 Neo Bowser City

You are crazy if you think this stage is terrible - LimePepsi25

This track has the best song in the game. It's so cool and I love bowser. Vote for this or bowser will throw you into his lava!

It's cool and all, being in the city and being so detailed, but that one rail-less turn before you do that long turn to the end where you jump off with the glider is so hard!

I think the only reason people don't enjoy this more is because the turns and such are difficult to nail, but when you've had as much practice as me at time trialing on the course, it just makes it that much more fun. Not to mention the great background soundtrack accompaniment...I'm so happy it returned in Mario Kart 8!


The Contenders

11 Shy Guy Bazaar

People look at this as being hard and long, its not. I like the surprises in the barrels like stars

Shy guy doesn't really get dignity

Shy guys are so cute Murphy 6

An excellent track for a great character. - CartreW

12 Daisy Crusier GCN

Heavily improved on the original - darthvadern

Daisy cruiser is so fun, and was the very first race I played on MK7. Not just the best MK7, but the best in all Mario kart's!

Better than the original

Better than Peach Beach.

13 Koopa Cape

A Very Fun Course Indeed.

Most ruined retro wii track but yet the best somehow - darthvadern

One of the best courses from Mario Kart Wii it is really cool when you go all underwater but I really hate when they made the glide so short the least they could have done was put in a second glide - rockrockmountain

Best wii track and to this day it is 1 of my favorites

14 Bowser's Castle

The most recent installment of the classic course from the Mario Kart Series it has great shortcuts awesome times to Glide really really good - rockrockmountain

15 Luigi's Mansion DS

This track is nostalgia for me! - darthvadern

I love this course here's why:
The music sounds like something that would be on a king boo course
It's pretty easy to win when your on CPU but wifi could be hard
It's a straight through track yes it goes right round
It's basically a better Luigi circuit version

But still this is pretty awesome
It's definitely one of the best
Newer tracks of 2013
But There A Still a pretty few more
Better than this track like:
Music Park, Rock Rock Mountain, Maka Wuhu,
Rainbow Road, Shy Guy Bazaar and Daisy Hills

It's still awesome though I'd put it around
7 or 8
Anyhow, if you are online on MK7 sometimes
Vote for this, it's better than you think!

And where is Rosalina's Ice World
That is cool 2! - RockStarr

The music! The design! The EVERYTHING! Never overlook such a neat and detailed designed track! It really has a true Luigi's Mansion feel to it.

16 Rosalina's Ice World

Hated this track at first now one of my favorites you will gate this if you have bad handling

I really like the challenge on the first 2 corners especially online because I do so much BETTER than everyone

What?! Put this at #3 - greenshyguy

17 Rainbow Road SNES

Good but kinda ruined the Lightning Cup - darthvadern

This course involves skill and is a very quick to play on. I personally like it because I nearly broke the World Record on this course. Still trying right now!

This is the best Rainbow Road. Its music really takes you somewhere the other Rainbow Roads didn't. Also the simple design makes it all the more lovable.

I keep on falling off when I drift

18 DK Jungle

This track has a jungle at the start then bounce on a giant flower then dk's hut and tiki goons then a wooden bridge then dense jungle with mud and frogs then 3 trick ramps then the golden temple with the giant gold babana then screaming pillars then a tiny split track then the jungle all in 1 lap it is a 3 lap race it is by far the best race and at the start there is 1 dk barrel it only releases bananas then 2 in the dense jhngle that release bananas and rarely stars 1-3 stars per race it has more than rainbow road and the 2 wuhu loops combined in 1 lap

Why is this so low? It kicks in some fun and it's based off of DK Country returns!

I just brought DK Country Returns! It is awesome! I love this course!

This one is great why is it so low? - Ajkloth

19 Daisy Hills

So simple yet incredible! There may be goats in the way sometimes, but on this course there is a killer shortcut that can turn you from 5th to 1st in a matter of seconds. Truly awesome!

It's simple, but it has plenty of awesome shortcuts that involve the gliding feature... and must I mention the music?

Such a beautiful stage, complete with bizarre, yet enchanting music.

This would make a great retro track

20 Wario Shipyard

This course moves quickly as you go. In Grand Prix, there is a chance to get mushrooms/stars out of barrels.

21 Mushroom Gorge

The one Wii track that didn't screw up - darthvadern

Only at #23? Bouncy Mushrooms, awesome shortcut and Risky Cave. It's a awesome feature to the game. King of the mushrooms! Even N64 Luigi Raceway was on top of this and that track is rubbish.

Love that blue mushroom.

Fun bouncy mushrooms

22 Wuhu Loop

It fits the Mii character theme.

It from wii sports resort

Harder then Maka Wuhu.

23 Wii Maple Treeway

Already on the list - darthvadern

The music is awesome. It's like autumn-music, isn't it? - GreenViolet8236

24 Kalamari Desert N64

Boring - darthvadern

Loved it on N64 love it now.

Mario kart 64 was my second game (first was super Mario bros on supe rmario allstars! ) so this track is very nostalgic I was so happy to see it this is my favforite desert track! Just as good as the original in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong

25 Wario's Galleon

The european name - darthvadern

This track is Wario's Shipyard but in another country? - Qryzx

Wario someone opened a shipyard! This track can sometimes be challenging and should of been in Mario Kart 8.

Wario's galleon has a neat concept such as ride up a half sunken wario ship should be higher!

26 Cheep Cheep Lagooon

I love it, definitely my favorite track in the Mushroom Cup! I know many people would say Shy Guy Bazaar when people say Best MK7 Mushroom Cup track? I liked Cheep Cheep Lagoon slightly more but don't worry, that track was awesomne too! But let's take a look at this track first! The european ame was Cheep Cheep Cape, I liked that name more eacuse every world in the title would start with C. The soundtrack is really nostalgic with that steel drum and it gives me back happy memories from when I played Freddi Fish, the soundtrack really sounds like the third Freddi Fish game! The design is really beautiful too! Basicilly, this track is just plain nostalgia! You will never understand how much I love this track! - darthvadern

The first course to mainly revolve underwater it is one of the most remembered courses already because it is the first one you see that has water. Watch out for those crabs tough! - rockrockmountain

I love going under water in this course - Ajkloth

33 GCN Dino Dino Jungle

This was one of the all-time best! - darthvadern

That dino's head near the end.. - Qryzx

Rubbish it is amazing Eddie
