Best Mario Kart DS Tracks

The Top Ten

1 Waluigi Pinball

Finally Waluigi gets the spotlight he deserves. This is the best track in Mario kart. It has special item sound effects. No other track has that luxury. You know that this could be a theme for a Waluigi game. Come on Nintendo. Make it happen

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!

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

Best track in the game!

2 Airship Fortress

Overall I think this one's the absolute best. Excellent music, great setting and doesn't have a few annoying gimmicks (unlike a certain pinball stage)

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.

Overall I think this one's the best. Excellent music, great setting and doesn't have a few annoying gimmicks (unlike a certain pinball stage)

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.

3 Tick-Tock Clock

It's a star cup course. You are inside a giant clock with a pendulum, cranks, time hands, and even two cranks that move you to get faster or slower.

Jesus, is there anything in this track that doesn't move?

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

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

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

4 Rainbow Road

Eh I personally don't like it that much honestly. Boring music and atmosphere overall

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

I can tell you that this is the best track in the game.

5 Delfino Square

Such a reference to Super Mario Sunshine and a great one!

I love Delfino Square in the Wii version!

I think this stage is so perfect!

Delfino square from sunshine!

6 Bowser's 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!

a really cool track with lots of 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.

I use to love how there was so many sections to this track which were all so different

7 Luigi'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!

Third favourite

This is a close third in my opinion. I love the athmosphere and music, and it's such a joy to play! I think the remake is better though

8 Sky Garden

My favorite track in the franchise sky garden 4 life

One of the best retros in the game

Great retro track

9 Yoshi Circuit

Why is this the last retro track in the game? I overall find it underwhelming

10 Wario Stadium

So fun, you get to jump off of things and dodge things while getting mad speed. Very underrated

Although the music doesn't fit, it's a challenging track

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

Great improvment on the original on the N64

The Contenders

11 DK Pass

If you drive off course to the highest point on the mountain, there’s an item box that always has either a triple mushroom or a star, even if you’re in first

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

Pretty underrated snow track

I'm neutral on this track

12 Koopa Beach 2

Best SNES track in the game

13 Mario Circuit

No! Mario Circuit 1 from SNES Mario Kart was!

This game's mario circuit is good

This is the first track ever made in mario kart history!

Great circuit track

14 Baby Park

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.

Mario kart ds wasn't right

Forgettable retro track

I love this track. Its the shordist thrack.

15 Cheep Cheep Beach

Very underrated as well. There's tons of variety in the beach landscape. There's boardwalk, the beach and the forest, a lot of beach tracks only have the beach but this one has all three

No colour cloudy sky

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.

Great beach track!

16 Peach Gardens

It's a wonderful track with a beautiful atmosphere

One of the most underrated tracks in the game

I love the layout

17 Choco Mountain

I love this track. It's the most fantastic track ever in the retro series. When I get past the lake I bump players of the little cliff and its fun

My cousins favorite track

Very good retro track in my opinion

Great retro track!

18 Banshee Boardwalk

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

Spookiest track in the game, also it's retro

Veri good track

19 Frappe Snowland

Very underrated retro track

Awesome retro track

20 Bowser Castle 2

Terrible, one of the worst in the game

21 Mushroom Bridge

It sucks that they removed the pipe shortcut, bomb cars, and removed where you can drive on top of the bridge

Music is interesting, I would have liked colour in the sky though

Very underwhelming but I enjoy it I guess

22 Figure-8 Circuit

Boring but if you like it, I respect your opinion.

So unoriginal it's original honestly

Worst of course

23 Shroom 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

This one gives me Norway vibes

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

Not a fan of shroom ridge at all

24 Yoshi Falls

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

I just voted to say it is boring.

Lazy, Boring and Pathetic

Fave ds track ever why does everyone hate it

25 Desert Hills

Rubbish course! Should be swapped with something hard like Luigi's Mansion. So lame. I don't know why they bought it back in Mario kart wii

Kinda overhated. Sure it's a bit bland but the music is quite good

Not so bad

The desert is cool,i knew it was brought back in the wii.But nothing changed
