Hardest Mario Kart Wii Tracks

The Top Ten

1 Rainbow Roads

This one's quite easy for me to play. I struggled at first but it grew on me quick.

So many ways to fall of.

Cannot do it

My personal favorite is the Wii rainbow road because of the star bits. But this one is the hardest one for me.

2 Moonview Highway

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.

The only track I think is hard... Those cars. It's a very annoying tracks. If I had a list of my least favorite tracks, all the traffic tracks would be on it, except for GCN Mushroom City. I think we all hate traffic tracks, but in Moonview Highway, the tracks are going faster than they ever did before. This track is so infuriating, and that's why I think it is the hardest track.

I can do Rainbow Road and other "hard" tracks quite well but Moonview Highway just pisses me off every time I play it. A car always hits me. Moonview Highway is the only track in MKWii that is "hard" for me. It always gets me. I wrote down the tracks that were the hardest for me when I started the game. And my top five are:
1. Moonview Highway
2. Rainbow Road
3. Bowser's Castle
4. Grumble Volcano
5. Wario's Gold Mine

3 Wario's Gold Mine

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

Thank goodness in 8 it is easier.

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 Grumble Volcano

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

This course is like a massive troll. Fireballs, narrow track, and if that isn't bad enough, portions of the track fall off on the final lap! You'll find yourself being smacked off the track and into the lava, ESPECIALLY if you play online!

I may not be good at mario kart, but I know a hard track from an easy one. No wonder this track is voted on of the hardest tracks of all time, it's narrow track and sharp turns are a real pain if you don't pay attention and ACTUALLY USE THE BREAK BUTTON! YES, THAT USELESS BUTTON WAS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR THIS TRACK! There's some news for ya. Anyway, yep. Hardest track by far. This track still gives me nightmares

Not to mention that really sickening shortcut that lots of people use online!

5 Bowser's Castle

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

Hardest track in MKWii. Requires a lot of skill.

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.

I hate the part where there is a giant Bowser robot that makes giant fireballs. At least there are great items like the star or giant toad.

6 N64 Bowser's Castle

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

7 Maple Treeway

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.

Wiggler replaced Diddy Kong in Mario kart 7 as the Time Trials normal and expert staff ghost.

Even thoughts its kinda difficult it's my number 1 track

8 N64 Sherbert Land

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.

Boring straightaways and boring design. The only thing I think is somewhat hard about this track is the ice physics and the penguins that's it

I hate sharp turns. This course has a lot of them, in fact, every course in the Banana Cup has a lot of sharp turns

9 Koopa Kape

I was shocked as well, only the sharp turns (and the waterfall if you're a lightweight)
Oh well, the game was easy anyway

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

10 DK Mountain

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.

It is very underrated

This one is kind of hard but still my favorite because it is so fun!

The Contenders

11 Ghost Valley 2

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.

Want proof why this track is hard? My cousin and my sister kept falling and got last place or close to last place in a race.

I have good news and bad news. Good news this track is so easy bad news I WAS WRONG ABOUT THE GOOD NEWS

12 Mushroom Gorge

Very hard but fun.

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.

Probably the easiest track in then game! Lots of great shortcuts that makes it one of my favorites

Hold on. You are lying if you say it's the easiest. Definitely not - Randomator

13 DK Summit

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


14 Moo Moo Meadows

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...

Laugh out loud they are easy to dodge but this is a fun course laugh out loud

Ugh, The. cows are IMPOSSIBLE to avoid! The first time I played I kept driving into them and got last place!

15 Dry Dry Ruins

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.

16 GBA Bowser Castle 3

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

17 GBA Shy Guy Beach

Too many crabs and bombs


18 N64 DK's Jungle Parkway

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

19 Toad's Factory

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

It's not very fun.

It’s super fun, except the end, you have to drive thru a lot of mud and that usually slows me down

20 SNES Rainbow Road

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.

Guys this track isn't in Mario KART WII

21 Waluigi Curcuit

Wait...Do you mean luigi curcuit?

22 GCN Mario Circuit
23 SNES Mario Circuit 3

24 Luigi's Mansion

25 Daisy Circuit

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

26 Waluigi Stadium

This is so hard I cried and threw my controller cause the idiot who thought everything was a wii added th-

27 Toad's Turnpike

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

30 DS Desert Hills

Too many sharp turns.

31 Mute City

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

32 Rosalina's Ice World

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

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
35 N64 Mario Raceway
36 GBA Riverside Park
37 Yoshi Falls

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

I like koopa kape

38 Luigi Circuit

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

Is this a joke

39 Mario Circuit


One of the worst and easiet Mario curcuit stages ever

40 Coconut Mall

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

I sometimes get hit by the in the 3DS version

41 Big Blue

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

42 Shy Guy Falls

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

43 Ribbon Road

Ribbon Road is not in this game

44 Peach Gardens
45 Dragon Driftway

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