Best Mario Kart DS Tracks
easily the greatest stage in this game. racing inside a pinball machine is pretty epic and the music is great. who doesn't love waluigi pinball?
True. It's easly the most original mario kart track in history. I mean the idea of racing inside a pinball is just outside the box and pure creativity. However these pinballs can screw up your race a lot, and so can the flippers as well, although the latter aren't as annoying. But I'd say it's in my top five at least
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
Waluigi Pinball is my favorite track not only because Waluigi gets some recognition by Nintendo, but it has iconic music, different noises for item loading, and much more!
deserves to be high on this list. I enjoy all the obstacles (the section at the very beginning is probably by favorite) apart from the rocky wrenches. it really makes you feel like you're in the midst of an airship battle
Definitely the coolest course, great music, and I loved racing on an airship. The obstacles were fun and hardly ever annoying !
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.
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.
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
Psychedelic! I love watching how every like three seconds my screen goes dark because I've just fallen off the track! Best track ever!
Eh I personally don't like it that much honestly. Boring music and atmosphere overall
Eh I don't like it that much honestly. Boring music and atmosphere overall
Worst. Rainbow Road. Ever. There's nothing about it that sticks out
Love the scenery, and it's very easy, quick, and if you
Bump into the random boxes an item might fall out!
Such a reference to Super Mario Sunshine and a great one!
I love Delfino Square in the Wii version!
This was so much fun, my go to course every time! great music too
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!
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
Pretty good stuff, although it's certainly one of the worse Bowser Caste tracks
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.
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
Fun course! Watch out for the walking trees! Easily the most memorable course!
Music is great. The trees are cool though the mud is slippery.
My favorite track in the franchise sky garden 4 life
Beautiful music. Simple course. It is just nice.
One of the best retros in the game
Already on the list
Why is this the last retro track in the game? I overall find it underwhelming
What can I say? This track was absolutely amazing. The jumps, the boosts, the theme, the style- and best of all, the music. Made even better on MKW's custom tracks, and I hope they bring it back as a retro in MK8 (Unless it's already in MK7. Haven't played it yet)
So fun, you get to jump off of things and dodge things while getting mad speed. Very underrated
This is my second favorite course on ds but choco mountain n64 was not on the list
Although the music doesn't fit, it's a challenging track
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
Waluigi pinball is very overrated, it sucks! This track is the best on Ds and third best all time. The music is amazing
Simple course though the music makes you feel like your on a snowy mountain.
Pretty underrated snow track
Best SNES track in the game
This is the first track ever made in mario kart history!
This game's mario circuit is good
Great circuit track
No! Mario Circuit 1 from SNES Mario Kart was!
Peach Gardens has a nice shortcut at the beginning. I never knew Peach had such a nice garden!
It's a wonderful track with a beautiful atmosphere
One of the most underrated tracks in the game
I love the layout
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.
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
Great beach track!
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
Very good retro track in my opinion
My cousins favorite track
The only phenomenonal retro tracks in my opinion.
this is dry bones' home track in my headcannon (my favorite character). I like the sharp turns and the indoor section, also the giant fish that jumps out at you is pretty cool. 2 spooky 4 me
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
Terrible, one of the worst in the game
Simple course. Music is alright. It’s just oKay.
one of the coolest casual time trials in my opinion
Very underrated retro track
Awesome retro track
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
This one gives me Norway vibes
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. It's the shordist thrack.
Fave ds track ever why does everyone hate it
I just voted to say it is boring.
Simple but calm and nice track
Lazy, Boring and Pathetic
This track had to exist, but it is absolutely terrible.
Boring but if you like it, I respect your opinion.
So unoriginal it's original honestly
Worst of course
Music is interesting, I would have liked colour in the sky though
Very underwhelming but I enjoy it I guess
Mushroom Bridge has a great shortcut. But now you can’t drive on the bridge and no more mushroom cars?!
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
The desert is cool,I knew it was brought back in the wii.But nothing changed
