Top 10 Best Mario Kart Super Circuit Tracks

If you've dabbled in the classic Mario Kart Super Circuit, you know that some tracks stand head and shoulders above the rest. You're probably nodding your head just thinking about tearing through Cheese Land or narrowly avoiding hazards on Sunset Wilds. So, grab your Game Boy Advance (or your emulator of choice), because we're about to dive into a discussion about the very best tracks this game has to offer. No spoilers, but expect some fan-favorites to make an appearance.
The Top Ten
1 Sunset Wilds

Sunset Wilds is one of the most innovative and amazing Mario Kart courses ever made. The fact that this complex stage was on the GBA really blows my mind even more. I'm a fan of desert courses in Mario Kart, and this is without a doubt the best one so far. For one, it's the only Mario Kart track in history so far (along with Lakeside Park) in which the background changes for every lap. First lap it's afternoon, second it's sunset, and last lap it's night. Combined with super epic music, this track is a masterpiece.

This track just reached the tenth and final spot on the countdown. I absolutely have NOTHING against it. I thought it was unique how the sunset kept going down after every lap. Plus, there are the Shy Guy hazards. Shy Guy is my favorite character, and he even has his own track. But Sunset Wilds, with its Shy Guys, takes the final spot on this countdown.

This track is a ton of fun to play on! A Shy Guy-filled desert, which is not easy to reach, but satisfying to boost on speed boosts. The speed boosts are either easier or harder to take, depending on whether somebody has already risked trying to go through there, and the time-changing atmosphere is the best in the game. Plus, the music reminds me of an old Western cowboy film.

Music is amazing, and the track is wonderful to play on.

2 Sky Garden

Sky Garden is one of the most unique Mario Kart tracks, and the music is not bad. You are racing on clouds, so it couldn't be more creative than that.

The music in this course is just... relaxing. Love this track!

Great, but the remake is better.

This course is underrated.

3 Ribbon Road

You're racing on a piece of ribbon that never ends. It feels like Snow Land and Ribbon Road fit perfectly together in the Star Cup. Snow Land represents the North Pole, and Ribbon Road represents Santa's Workshop. It would be a gift of mine if Ribbon Road returns to MK8. See what I did there?

How are Cheep Cheep Island and Broken Pier higher than this? This track is great!

Ribbon Road is amazing. Super original.

4 Cheese Land

I like this track because it's cheese.

It's made of cheese. Enough said.

Looks so yummy.

5 Rainbow Road

The hardest track. The walls are literally made of jump pads, stars fall out of the sky, thunderclouds shock you... Oh man... So good...

Not much. It just has some of the catchiest music in the franchise.

Amazing Rainbow Road.

6 Cheep Cheep Island

It's big, the sunset is nice, and it's just kind of funny to watch the Cheep Cheeps dive everywhere in the background.

Princess Peach sounds perfect in this game!

Ah, Cheep Cheep Island. This stage is the best, or one of the best!

Why don't people like this track? It's miles better than Shy Guy Beach.

Love the sunset.

7 Broken Pier
8 Riverside Park

I'm a HUGE fan of this track. Whether it's the music or scenery, it just reminds me of Florida for some reason. But it's a great track overall.

Best track ever!

It better appear in Mario Kart 8, otherwise I will be very sad...

9 Yoshi Desert

This track will be a sandy good track to race on (bad pun). It reminds me of ancient Egypt, with the pyramids and music. The Yoshi Sphinx in the background makes this track even better.

This is one great track! Who doesn't like a track with a great desert and one that's based on Yoshi?

Never underestimate Mario Kart: Super Circuit. Besides Super Mario Kart, Mario Kart 64, and the Mario Kart Arcade GP series, this game is the best Mario Kart game ever!

The music alone makes it worth it.

10 Snow Land

I had trouble choosing between number 9 and 10, but I picked Snow Land for the number 9 spot. Its snowy scenery, really, really good music, and all the hazards make it no wonder it's in the Star Cup. Plus, there are all the coins in a row.

The music sounds strangely similar to Choco Mountain.

The Contenders
11 Shy Guy Beach
12 Bowser Castle 3

It has very sharp turns, and it's my favorite retro track in MKWii.

Best Bowser's Castle in the game.

13 Bowser Castle 4

Unfortunately, we already have three N64 tracks for Mario Kart 8, and probably four because Yoshi Valley was written on a sign in Sunshine Airport. You wouldn't normally see it, but it is in GameXplain's analysis. How Nathaniel predicted the retro tracks would be good for the game, but the N64 tracks were more memorable, and the GBA and SNES tracks were not that good. Even with the great graphics Mario Kart 8 has, they wouldn't be as good as some of the more modern retro tracks. It's a bit of a problem, but I'm fine with having "GBA tracks until like Mario Kart 15," as long as they don't use too many of them in one game and they look great graphically and play well.

This should be in MK8. Why did they only use one GBA track in Mario Kart 7? Here's how many tracks they have used altogether:
SNES: 8/20
N64: 11/16
GBA: 7/20
GCN: 10/16
DS: 8/16
Wii: 4/16

I think they should do that thing where they have four tracks from the two newest games, of course. I think they should also reuse two SNES tracks, three GBA tracks, but only one N64 track, only one GCN track, and only one DS track, just like Nathaniel Bandy on YouTube said.

Very challenging and fun.

14 Luigi Circuit

This track has rain. Cool, yay.

15 Lakeside Park

Again, HUGE fan. It's the best jungle track in the series. With a part of Riverside Park's music in it, the volcano that shoots out fireballs, and everything else, this track is number seven on this list.

One of the best pieces of music in the game! #MarioKART9 even though I HATE hashtags.

16 Bowser Castle 1

I like the background.

17 Bowser Castle 2
18 Boo Lake
19 Peach Circuit
20 Donut Plains 3

This is the track I remember racing the most.

21 Chocolate Island 2
22 Choco Island 1
23 Vanilla Lake 2
24 Donut Plains 1
25 Mario Circuit
