Hardest Mario Kart Wii Tracks

The Top Ten

1 Rainbow Roads

SNES Rainbow Road is the hardest. You have to go slow around the corners(unless you are a pro). One wrong move and you are done for

It gets easier with practice. - Gametoon

Well of course duh - darthvadern

This is easy I beat it while using a star on 150cc

2 Moonview Highway

This is my hardest. The cars go SO fast and switch paths often. Still a really fun track though. - Gametoon

The cars can definitely be a pain at times - darthvadern

This one is so hard because of one word TRAFFIC

I am fine with courses with traffic on this, but this? Mario kart Wii was too fast paced anyway.

3 Wario's Gold Mine

To me, it's more annoying than hard. Still fun. - Gametoon

To be honest this track is easy for me - darthvadern

I always fall of when the track dips down and comes back up. I also hate the mine carts.

I can get first place on Rainbow Road a hundred times. All you have to do is avoid dying (which means knowing how to take your finger off the accelerated when going around sharp turns). When I'm using a Motorcycle, though, Wario's Gold Mine kills me all the time.

4 Bowser's Castle

Like Rainbow Road, it's easy with practice. - Gametoon

One of the most chaotic tracks - darthvadern

So Hard! Can't do 3 solid laps in a row, nearly EVER!

How is this not at least #4? The robot irritates the hell out of me and I've lost count of how many times I've crashed into the fireballs on the last boost.

5 Grumble Volcano

Not that hard other than the fact that half the track is gone after two laps. - Gametoon

Well half the track is gone after two laps so there's that - darthvadern

This one is actually my favorite besides Mt. Wario, it’s always been easier for me

Rainbow Road is fine, but this gets me every time. It's tolerable on time trials, but playing this with other racers is horrible.

6 Maple Treeway

I love this track, but it's really easy in my opinion. - Gametoon

Yeah you're driving on a tree for gods sake - darthvadern

Harder than SNES Rainbow Road! Stupid Wiggler is always in the way and the tree branches are weird sharp turns!

I always get knocked off the branches, the bullet leaves you in a position to fall off. The wigglers are so annoying.

7 N64 Bowser's Castle

It's the hardest retro track - darthvadern

The only hard thing is the turns and those moving thwomps. Why are those thwomps racist to Marty, anyways? - Gametoon

This is my least favorite track besides warios gold mine in the game. I always get 10th place or worse.

8 Koopa Kape

Koopa *Cape. It's easy in my opinion - darthvadern

This place is difficult, especially the underwater section, but the best track ever

Honestly what makes this track hard is because sharpest turns, and the last waterfall. - n416701

You misspelled the title! - greenshyguy

9 N64 Sherbert Land

The ice physics were improved from the original. This makes the track easy. - Gametoon

It's actually pretty easy. The ice physics are not that bad - darthvadern

Very sharp turns, and it gets very tough to avoid the penguins when in the ice caves.

I don't know why, but for me this race is pretty hard. I like Rainbow Road and Wario's Gold mine is like my favorite track, but I hate Sherbert Land 64.

10 DK Mountain

Easier than the original because of the more stable physics. - Gametoon

It's very easy compared to the original - darthvadern

Actually, this is my favorite court and is so easy! Makes me bored. Too easy.

This is my favorite coarse, and I think it is pretty easy.


The Contenders

11 DK Summit

The only annoying thing is when the snow slows you down. - Gametoon

Yeah this is slightly hard - darthvadern

I could laugh real hard at people getting hit by the snowballs then falling off. Such good memories.

Laugh out loud if your gonna do a shortcut like the fall on its easy but if you do doblue its a lot harder

12 Ghost Valley 2

It's not hard, just annoying. It's boring, too. - Gametoon

Pfft, this is super easy - darthvadern

When I play it's always those 90 degree turns that send me back a place or 2.

It may be a simple track, but don't let that bother you. It's filled with sharp 90 degree turns and unexpected no guard rails. One time, I've fallen on that broken edge. If you hit a guard rail, you don't see it anymore. That shortcut at the beginning can be a little risky because after that, it forces you to make a sharp turn with almost no guard rails.

13 Mushroom Gorge

Not really all that hard, and I find mushroom bouncing fun. - Gametoon

I'm surprised this is in the Mushroom cup - darthvadern

Mushroom gorge is so annoying! Whenever I do a trick of a mushroom, I mostly fall off! It's so hard. That for a race in the mushroom cup, it doesn't seem fair.

Mushroom Gorge is so hard. My little brother thinks it's was easy but it's not. I always die at the cave part in the track.

14 Moo Moo Meadows

This is one of the easiest - darthvadern

Easy. - Gametoon

This stage is not hard - LimePepsi25

I can't stand when this track is chosen online. Its all about luck here, you could be in first and then comes the blue shell...

15 Koopa Cape

Already on list - darthvadern

16 Dry Dry Ruins

Slightly hard - darthvadern

The course is easy but the other racers can be a little good

Dry Dry Dry Ruins

This course was so intense like Mario Kart Wii itself.

Thank god the Wii U is not very successful, because Wii sounds like a terrible name.

17 GBA Bowser Castle 3

I think it is easy - darthvadern

How is this track hard it's amazing. The turns are fluid the cuts give good players a chance to breakaway and the obstacles that come are fair.

I HATE THIS ONE. I always end up doing really bad on this course. I don't know why.

This isn't even a castle! What the heck! It's just some random stone thingeymabob on lava! - THEEPICDUDE990

18 GBA Shy Guy Beach

Only problem is bombs and crabs other than that it's alright - darthvadern

Too many crabs and bombs


19 N64 DK's Jungle Parkway

This is also super easy - darthvadern

I disagree. This course is so easy. No obstacles. Why is it in Leaf cup? True, maybe it is quite lengthy

Well on the N64 it was on the Special Cup which was a stretch. It should be in the Banana Cup but Leaf Cup is alright for it too - darthvadern

20 SNES Rainbow Road

Not in game - darthvadern

This is not in Mario Kart Wii. This makes it the hardest track because nobody has ever completed this track on Mario Kart Wii unless they downloaded extra software. - JrodNinja

This should be removed from the list its not on Mario kart wii

I don't even need to explain why. This track is harder than that going outside in a thunderstorm without getting wet while Chuck Norris is roundhouse kicking you into the floor and without raging over the difficulty.

21 Toad's Factory

It's a bit difficult for Mushroom Cup that's for sure - darthvadern

Putting this track in the mushroom cup is pretty underrating.
The flower cup and even star cup would be more fitting than the mushroom cup that is meant to introduce the game to the player. Though not special cup level, it's CERTAINLY not mushroom cup level either.
It's in between star cup and flower cup for me (average/above average difficulty level). - Qryzx

Boxes are annoying

Annoying sometimes this level

22 Waluigi Curcuit

Does not exist - darthvadern

Wait...Do you mean luigi curcuit?

Not a real course

This course is the hardest, wanna know why? ITS NOT IN THE GAME! - THEEPICDUDE990

23 GCN Mario Circuit

This is super easy. How this is the last track in the LEAF CUP is beyond me - darthvadern

24 SNES Mario Circuit 3

It's actually easy - darthvadern

I hate this track! The turns are just too sharp

25 Luigi's Mansion

Not in game - darthvadern

This is technically the hardest track in Mario kart Wii wanna know why? ITS IMPOSSIBLE TO COMPLETE BECAUSE ITS NOT EVEN IN THE GAME

Remove this from the list its not a Mario kart wii track

Somebody thought every console is a wii - TeamRocket747

26 Waluigi Stadium

This one's in the middle I think - darthvadern

This is so hard I cried and threw my controller cause the idiot who thought everything was a wii added th-
Oh for pete sake, I realized it is in the game. I'm such an idiot - TeamRocket747

27 Toad's Turnpike

Not in game - darthvadern

Mirror mode. That's all I have to say.

28 Shy Guy Beach

Already on list - darthvadern

This track is super easy

29 Daisy Circuit

Super easy - darthvadern

There is like no way to race without those cones slowing you down, and it is so hard people make fun of me who think its easy when you squashed in the secret passway.

This course drives me insane

Easiest race ever

30 DS Desert Hills

This is very easy. Pokeys can be annoying but that's it. I agree with it being in the leaf cup though - darthvadern

Too many sharp turns.

Eek I hate his course it has multiple sharp turns and too many fire snakes

31 Mute City

Not in game - darthvadern

Hahaah! This is Mario Kart EIGHT! Ha Ha Ha! I didn't like that course much anyway... - Mariomaster63

32 Rosalina's Ice World

Another modding track - will_smm2

Not in game - darthvadern

100% You're going to fall. I hate ice courses in general, but this... this is murder. Not what I expected from a course based off one of my favorite characters.

No no no this is Mario kart 7

33 Boom Beach

Not in game - darthvadern

! @#$%^&*() with all the modding track - will_smm2

This is the hardest track in Mario Kart Wii because IT'S NOT A REAL COURSE! Unless you decide to make it a real course using the whole custom track thing. - lamourieparkinson

I forgot the name of this one but it's the one with the crabs and bombs I think it in the leaf cup

34 Peach Beach

This is one of the easiest retro tracks - darthvadern

35 N64 Mario Raceway

Not hard at all - darthvadern

36 GBA Riverside Park

Not in game - darthvadern

37 Wuhu Island

Not a track unless you're doing modding - will_smm2

38 Yoshi Falls

Really? This is one of the easiest ever as long as you avoid the shortcuts - darthvadern

Two words boring, and easy at least some of the other easy tracks like toad's factory is fun

I like koopa kape

39 Luigi Circuit

Objectively the easiest track in the game - darthvadern

This is the easiest track whoever said it's hard is a troll do not feed that troll

I play Mario kart I think the easiest map is moo moi meadows

Idiots this is the easiest

40 Mario Circuit

Honestly other than the chain chomp this is second easiest - darthvadern


One of the worst and easiet Mario curcuit stages ever

41 Coconut Mall

This one is slightly hard - darthvadern

It sucks when you go on the wrong escalator and got from first to eighth, love everything but that one part, but overall a easy level

It's always the second stupid car that gets me - THEEPICDUDE990

What this my favirote level in Mario kart Wii one thing I hate the cars at the end of the level

42 Big Blue

Not in game - darthvadern

This is my 2nd favorite track of all time number one is WII Rainbow Road. But where do I even begin with this being on the list? This doesn't even exist until Mario Kart 8 DLC. - greenshyguy

43 Shy Guy Falls

Not in game - darthvadern

This cannot be a track in Mario Kart Wii because there is no anti-gravity mechanic - greenshyguy

44 Ribbon Road

Not in game - darthvadern

Ribbon Road is not in this game

45 Peach Gardens

Not too hard - darthvadern

46 Dragon Driftway

Not in game - darthvadern

Oh. My. Gosh. So many crazy hard turns, the drifts are terrible... almost like Neo Bowser City.

47 DS Delfino Square

Why is this last? Luigi Circuit and Moo Moo Meadows are way easier - darthvadern

48 DK Snowboard Cross
49 Yoshi Circuit (8) Yoshi Circuit (8)

On the mobile mario kart game bro it’s so hard to get 5 stars on it

50 New York Minute R

Gets extremely annoying! I’ve played it over 50 times and can’t reach the 5 stars, even though I get first place each time.
