Top 10 Best Mario Kart Wii Tracks

The Top Ten
1 Rainbow Road

Such a nostalgic track. My dad and I would always lose it when we fell off, but the aesthetics and color in the course are just incredible. The OST just ties it all together. Well-deserved number 1. #rainbowroadwiiforwave6

I love this track! It's challenging, and that's what makes it fun. There's even a U-turn that's difficult to make, but there's a trick ramp that you can use to your advantage. Almost no walls makes it hard, but not impossible, to stay on track most of the time. The only way I fall off at all is because of the items that opponents use against you. Lightning and spiny shells are the worst. Love the theme and the music. Rainbow Road is a Mario Kart tradition! Don't hate!

2 Coconut Mall

Why isn't this Number 1? It's the best track of all time! I never saw such an original track! First off, we got the music. So catchy! Next, it's like a maze! You can pick so many paths! And lastly, who would allow karts to drive in a mall? So original! Does anyone else understand what I'm saying and hope this should be Number 1?

I love this track and not just because of the concept it uses. Honestly, I can't even describe why this is my number 1 Mario Kart track (all-time favorite). Wario's Gold Mine and Coconut Mall haters can go back to playing the overrated Mount Wario.

3 Maple Treeway

Nothing tops Maple Treeway in my mind. It's just beautifully designed. I love the tons of branching (no pun intended) paths and the amazing shortcut at the beginning. I also just love how there is so much variety. Maple Treeway never gets old. I also love the visuals and the autumn concept. It's my favorite track on Mario Kart Wii and is still my favorite in Mario Kart 7 along with Airship Fortress.

This track is so awesome! It has an original theme to it. I love this track's music. It begins on the ground at first but then a cannon shoots you into a tree, and you drive there and then back to the ground. Who would think of a track like that? No one but Nintendo!

4 Koopa Cape

My 8th favorite track in this game. It's not in my top 5 because of the length. It feels a little bit long. Everything else about it is great in my opinion. The scenery, music, enemy placement, and the shortcuts are also useful at times.

Easily the best Mario Kart Wii track because you are driving underwater, avoiding electrical lasers, and trying to use that river for the boost. It's better than Maple Treeway and Rainbow Road. My cousin also gets excited because this is her favorite Mario Kart Wii track. Mario Kart 7 used that underwater driving feature inspired by this track. Imagine not having this track! Then, it would not have underwater driving. Of course, they returned this course in Mario Kart 7, but there are no electrical lasers.

Overall, this track is awesome, has the catchiest song, and inspired Mario Kart 7 to use that underwater driving feature that will be used for later games to come.

5 DK Summit

My beloved. Absolutely deserves a spot here if not higher. The snow biome just makes it very enjoyable. The cannon with the legs flying out is awesome, and I love the mogul shy guys and gap cuts. Such a fun course.

SUPER TRACK! Not quite sure why Shy Guys are in it. There should be DKs. The barrel cannon at the start is a great way to start a great DK race. Try not to get stuck in the patches of snow.

The half-pipe ramps are great for tricks and shortcuts as they help you avoid snow patches. The single is the ultimate shortcut, but if you do the double, superb!

6 Mushroom Gorge

Maple Treeway at 2? No! That's overrated. All you do is drive on a tree. Mushroom Gorge is much more creative. It's very unpredictable as the race can be decided by some excellent jumping (on mushrooms) or a sloppy landing. It's fun, creative, and likable by everyone.

The second-best on Wii after Coconut Mall. You're on a mountain using mushrooms to bounce through gorges. Inside the cave is epic. Perform tricks to bounce your way through it. This course will be remembered.

Definitely my 2nd favorite track in this game after Koopa Cape. It's just so satisfying performing tricks as you bounce off mushrooms. And the cave looks beautiful as well.

7 Bowser's Castle

Bowser's Castle is meant to be a challenging course. The scenery is good, and it deserves to be better than Luigi Circuit because it is not item-based and is skill-based. There is one glitch shortcut on the track that can cut off a lot of time, but it can only be done by people who have a high amount of skill. This has got to be one of my favorite tracks, and I think it deserves a better place than last on this list. I am not saying it is one of the best tracks. It is just not the worst.

Definitely the best Bowser's Castle in any game. It has awesome music, a great difficulty curve, and a huge variety of obstacles. I especially love the wavy corridor at the beginning and the half-pipe section with the giant fire-breathing Bowser statue.

8 Grumble Volcano

This course is beautiful, challenging, and one of the best in Mario Kart Wii. In addition, the remake in Mario Kart 8 is totally better and it makes this awesome track look 10x better.

Grumble Volcano is great because it gets progressively harder as the ground crumbles.

I like the original better than the remake because the track falls apart way too quickly in MK8.

9 Bowser's Castle (N64)

Underrated. From the flaming Bowser statue to the lava spurt, it's a difficult track with many different twists and turns. A joy to play! The harmonizing in the choir is also amazing.

This was my unrivaled favorite in Mario Kart for decades (until Ninja Hideaway came out). Childhood nostalgia, it spooked me as a child and overall gives a more "Bowser" feel than any other Bowser's Castle.

Retro tracks will forever be much better than nitro tracks!

10 Toad’s Factory

Very underrated track! This is where all the items come from. A really creative idea to see how they're made. The conveyor belts and lake skip are fun too.

This is, hands down, the single-most underrated track in Mario Kart Wii. It's got the hazardous deathtraps lying around to keep you on your toes, er, wheels, and the catchiest Mario Kart music I've ever heard.

Support the Factory!

Not my favorite course in the game. I think the factory makes item boxes. The shortcut over the lake is often forgotten. Are there fire alarms going off at the end of the factory? It's alright, but maybe #9.

The Contenders
11 DK Mountain

I have to say, the ramps are questionable. The ultra shortcut didn't have to be there. The regular shortcut, where you steal all the items, is pretty cool. It's overall a good course.

This is so underrated. DK Mountain is my second favorite track behind Koopa Cape. It's so creative and fun to play.

Epic course. That feeling when you zoom down delights me, and the fence flying is just insane.

12 Wario's Gold Mine

This is my favorite track of all time! What I find extremely difficult to understand, however, is why people find it so difficult. It is actually hard to fall off. Some might say that the ultra shortcut (the one with the green pipes) is good, but I just think that ultra shortcuts are so boring. The point of video games like this is not to get the best time! You don't get to feel the flow of the track and you have no fun playing it.

Anyway, the only annoying thing about this track is when you're in second and you're trying to red shell someone, but the bats tank it! That is so annoying, right? My top 5 tracks would be:

1. Wario's Gold Mine
2. Coconut Mall
3. DK's Snowboard Cross/DK Summit
4. DK Mountain
5. Peach Beach

13 Delfino Square

This track is great for drifting, and the mushroom cut, for a change, is actually somewhat challenging if you don't know what you're doing.

Perfect difficulty, perfect music, perfect design, and it always has a nice race. Probably my favorite DS track and a great retro track too.

Fun and entertaining, with many shortcuts, alternate routes, and sharp turns!

14 Moonview Highway

This is my favorite track in the game by far. Music has the feel like you're on a police chase through the local town and city roads. The cars are a hassle, but I like that.

I am a fan of this track. Well, I used to hate it. This track is not easy, but you can easily be in the middle of the road and get saved from the cars. Speaking of cars, they are hard to dodge and some of them come out of nowhere. I used to beat this track without hitting traffic.

Moonview Highway makes Toad's Turnpike jealous. I just love Moonview's fast-paced nature with all the boost panels and cars. It's easy to snake in carts, but easy to wheelie in bikes. It's balanced for all vehicles, and it's just a blast!

15 Dry Dry Ruins

So good that I get excited just thinking about it! For me, this is #6 (after Rainbow Road, Koopa Cape, Grumble Volcano, Wario's Gold Mine, and Coconut Mall). Mirror mode though... what the... why?

It's amazing how you can go inside the temple. While it's not the best Wii track out there, it's my favorite desert-themed track out there.

16 Waluigi Stadium (GCN)

Waluigi Stadium is flat-out underrated. There. I said it. This is like Excite Bike Arena from MK8, but good. It has the fireballs, the piranha plants, and a turn at the end which is the best type of challenge. Another track that needs to be remade.

Really love this track. It's my 19th favorite Mario Kart track ever.

This is also tied for my second favorite Mario Kart Wii track.

17 Yoshi Falls

Aw, come on! Y'all aren't gonna act like you didn't try to get on the egg island? I always had a blast on this track, short and sweet. The upbeat bouncy music suits Yoshi perfectly as well.

I like this track more than Baby Park (not saying much since GCN Baby Park is my 145th place track). You call this track an oval, but at least it has ramps. You only hate this track because they labeled a "boring" track by Yoshi. I honestly like this track, and how is it overrated? Almost no one likes this track. Are the CPUs the "people" who love it? A highly hated track can't be overrated in my book.

18 Daisy Circuit

This is honestly underrated. The scenery is incredible, and the music is one of the best. Also, I think it's funny to hit the other racers with shells and bananas when they are on the other side of the road next to the lighthouse.

This is the best circuit in this game! The other two are too boring.

This track is underrated. The scenery is so detailed and amazing.

19 Bowser Castle 3 (GBA)

My third-favorite track in this game, after Moonview Highway and DS Peach Gardens, because I love the music. I like the track's difficulty. The shortcut is broken, but you can easily fail it at the same time.

The music is really nice. The shortcut without a mushroom is really hard to pull off, even though the rest of the course is great!

So much fun tech here! Also, kicking soundtrack!

20 Moo Moo Meadows

One of my favorite tracks for the relaxing music. I just really love the cows.

Great track. I love the idea of the cows and it's well-designed.

21 Mario Raceway (N64)

This track doesn't really look anything special, but I'm okay with that. This track just drives so well. As a player who likes to use both karts and bikes, I like that this track is balanced for both. It's just a chill track. I also like how there's so much off-road that you can be really creative with your shortcuts.

Underrated. It may be a beginner course, but it is super difficult and chaotic to play with other people because you can take massive shortcuts almost everywhere.

Classic and perfect for beginners. I am glad they brought it back, and I enjoy it.

22 DK's Jungle Parkway

The ferry going through the water is really cool. I like that the Parkway is simple but also throws in some challenging turns here and there.

Has a good shortcut heading to the big jump. Actually, it's my favorite course.

It is the second best Mario Kart Wii retro track (only DK Mountain is better).

23 Mario Circuit

The Chain Chomp is my favorite part of this course. I love the great, bouncy music. It's also named after Mario! The last thing I would like to say about this is that my four-year-old brother can win it.

I usually do pretty well on this course. It has nice shortcuts, and I like the Chain Chomp.

My sixth favorite track because it has some aspects of difficulty to it and it looks fun to race on.

24 Ghost Valley 2 (SNES)

Unpopular opinion, deserves to be in the top 5. There's always that one track that gives you chills and has an eerie feeling. This would be it. The falling blocks, iconic trick shortcut, and Boos are very simplistic, but the absence of music is really spooky. It makes you think that you're alone. The ambiance of this track does it for me.

This course is said to be one of the hardest, considering how many twists and sharp turns there are, but I really love this course! Sure it's hard, but once you're really good at the game, it's like a cakewalk. Trust me, this course is really amazing!

25 Peach Gardens

This is my 2nd favorite track in MKWii after Moonview Highway. This track should be in at least the top 12, I'd say. Good scenery, nice layout, music is also criminally underrated, I feel.

How is this 32? It's one of my favorite tracks in the game! The scenery is beautiful, along with the chompers and Peach's castle! It's not too long nor short, and it has plenty of shortcuts to go with! I will always think it's awesome.

It's just super calming to drive through. It is always a nice experience.
