The Top Ten

1 3DS Rainbow Road

This is the best Rainbow Road because of it's music and you can race on Saturn's rings and the surface of the Moon.

Definitely without a doubt the best Rainbow Road. The music is AMAZING, and being able to race on Saturn's rings and the Moon is AWESOME. This track is a MASTERPIECE.

This rainbow road easily, EASILY could beat any of the other rainbow roads out there. It's nice and long and its got a lot of features! - DrewtheGamer98

Absolutely gorgeous. Just drive an entire lap (3 sections) and you'll immediately understand what I'm getting to over here. The soundtrack man - beyond words. It brought back the MK64 chorus? NOSTALGIA EXPLOSION! This is the only Rainbow Road soundtrack in a Mario Kart to have FAN-MADE lyric video! It's that great! I just want this in FHD, or heck even 4K! Better than the best! Pretty sure no other Rainbow Road has got the guts to top this. I love it!

2 Wii Rainbow Road

Easily the best soundtrack. Burning through the Stratosphere and karting on a rainbow whilst under the influence of acid? Can't top that.

It has more steroids than armstrong and his bike team

This rainbow road is underrated

This and mario kart 7 are the best - YOSHIA2121

Super Unique compared to the others

Best Music in all of Mario Kart

Beautiful, best soundtrack and hard. I love this track.

The rainbow road on the 3ds was good, but this rainbow road is MUCH BETTER! IT HAS THE BEST SOUNDTRACK IN THE WHOLE SERIES!

4 N64 Rainbow Road

I love the music though. And if they do bring it back to Mario Kart 8, chances Are they will remove most of the railings and make the track narrower for a harder challenge. (hopefully)

Well, this track is really bland, but in Mario Kart 8 it looks gorgeous.

This beats all by a landslide. If you dare say you hate the music... then you basically hate Mario Kart.

The defining Rainbow Road

5 Wii U Rainbow Road

It's really hard but not too hard like the Wii version. It's breathtaking and has awesome music. The track design is amazing and the best so far. The space station idea is new and creative. As the games go up, the Mario Kart Rainbow Roads get generally better, and each one has something new to share. This one is no exception!

Who the Hell decided to put a space station on rainbow road? And then make it a series of figure 8 circuits?

The track design plus the music are simply beautiful. Love the way Nintendo made the change and the risk to do it. As for the space station: Well, you saw all those brands in the new Mario kart? Like MKTV, REXA, Bowser Oil, Mushroom Piston Engines and so on. Maybe they put it so the brands get shown to the world and to be available for the racers even if they're in outer space.

This rainbow road is great,but the space station is weird (where the heck does the racers keeping riding

the tracks without floating through space.)

6 SNES Rainbow Road

This is unquestionably the best Rainbow Road ever tying with N64 Rainbow Road & GBA Rainbow Road!

This rainbow road is the most challenging and it has the best music. I don't get why people hate it so much!

This rainbow road is overrated

Why sin't this number 1? It's the best mario kart track in my opinion

7 DS Rainbow Road

The only thing I like about this is how challenging it is and it's alll about your driving skills. Thare are even loops but if you slip at the middle of the loop, it's no joke. You fall straight down. I can't believe this wasn't in Mario Kart 8 because you go upside down for the first time. Oh well, maybe next time. If Mario Kart 9 starts making, I will include DS rainbow road and put it as the final race of the Lightning cup and redesign it greatly because the ds version was a little bland.

Such awesome music for a Mario Kart track.

The only thing I like about this track is the loop.

8 GBA Rainbow Road

Are you kidding me?! This track is not a joke! It is the hardest Rainbow Road in any Mario Kart game! Those Boost Pads give me that out-of-control feeling and I end up falling off!

I've raced on this Rainbow Road a million times, that's how fun it is. It is EXTREMELY challenging, there is almost no walls, and the track is lined with jump pads that make you fly off the track (or perform amazing shortcuts). During a huge stretch, multiple Stras from the sky fall down onto the track, creating chaos, and thunderclouds that shock you also lurk around the corners, both having the same effect as their items, respectively.

Mario Kart Super Circuit didn't get much publicity, but this track is amazing compared to all the others. Can't wait to see the retro!

The amount of Speed Boosters, and his secrets make this the Best Rainbow Road ever.

Awful, just awful... - Arilio
