Top Ten Worst Mario Kart Courses

Well the absolute worst in all Mario Kart games vote it here.

The Top Ten

1 Figure 8 Circuit DS

This should be #1 not Luigi circuit. At least Luigi circuit is based on Luigi. At least it has speed boosts. But this is worse because it is just a figure 8 and that's it. It's not even based on a character. It doesn't even have any enemies or speed boosts or anything. It is the first stage in the game so I'm not surprised.

Just ABOUT as boring as Luigi Circuit - Berger

This Boring Track. This Is The Worst Mario Kart Track I've Ever Played. IT'S ALSO LAME. FIGURE 8 IS NOT EVEN A CHARACTER. There's Nothing In This Course.

I hate figure 8 circuit. It is the worst Mario kart ds track I've ever done. Mario circuit ds is way better than this crap. I kept loosing in fugure 8 circuit, it is even worst than Luigi circuit from Mario kart wii. But Luigi circuit does have some speed bost. That why it's not nearly as bad. But fugure 8 circuit is an idiot track, there is no speed bost. There is no short cut. It's only a figure 8 that's the only thing. And they showed the Mario at the very end of the track. this is not a Mario track. And there is no character named figure 8 in Mario. What were they think. I think they were like, ok, we're tired of just doing circuit's that are only based on Mario characters, let's make a figure 8 so that everyone will be happy, no, this made almost every single person in the world very upset. I don't want to think on this idiot track anymore today.

2 Luigi Circuit Wii

People always vote for this online cause its an easy course but they have yoshi falls for that not this awful job

Why do so many people vote for this course during online races?

I know Luigi Circuit on the wifi is so boring. It's shaped a pretzel. The speed boosts are slower than the other racers who don't take the pads. Worst Mario kart track ever

Ooh look! Speed boosts! They actually SLOW YOU DOWN! - Tyler730

3 Mario Circuit 1 SNES

And you thought mario circuit 3 was bad - Berger

I know it's the first Mario Kart Course, so it's not #1, but that's not an excuse, I just expect more from the Wii - Berger

Being the first course doesn't make it better, just a way too short loop. - DaisyandRosalina

Too simple for me.

Most overrated track of all time (until Hyrule Circuit came out, man how I hate Zelda games and their Fanboys) - Maddox121

4 Peach Beach GCN

Well its really boring (but not more than Figure 8, Luigi Circuit Wii, or Mario Circuit 1) - Berger

I agree its short but I don't say its bad cause it does have challenging enemies to avoid and it is one of the first tracks you play. - spodermanfan1000

I think is because Peach is a starter Mario character.

It's not that bad... - DaisyandRosalina

5 Sherbet Land N64

This track is arguably the worst track of all time. The ice physics are frustrating, the track design is the worst, the penguins are annoying, and the atmosphere is bland.

How dare you put Super Mario Kart, Mario Kart 64 & Mario Kart: Super Circuit tracks on the list! Replace this with a crappy GCN track, a DS track, a Wii track, a 3DS track or a Wii U track! This track is beautiful & perfect! I know, there can be some flaws, but the N64 version of Sherbert Land is way better than the Wii version.

There was another person that agreed with you about the N64 reason was better than the Wii but for a different reason. He said hat the N64 version didn't contain off road and was a fair track, but he said the Wii was terrible because it had off road every segment of it which kind of made it overpowered.

N64 Sherbet Land stinks! GCN Sherbet Land is better!

Hey, I like this track and I think it's cute, why.

6 Moonview Highway Wii

I like this course but the music sounds like a dieing owl - Harri666

As Nathaniel Bandy would say: This is toad turnpike ON STEROIDS - Randomator

Honestly, what makes this track bad is the amount of traffic they put.

This is my favorite course. - Extractinator04

7 Ghost Valley SNES

I make my family race on this track and they get ticked off about it. I always win.

This might refer to Ghost Valley 1

Which one is this referring to?

What? ghost valley tracks rule!

8 Moo Moo Meadows Wii

It does get annoying to hit the cows and stop. - dureckl

I love/hate the cows in this track. They could win or lose a race for you. - masonkv

I hated this course in the wii but in Mario kart 8 the graphics are amazing - Harri666

@Idontneedausername has a Double Dash like me, he told me. I have a Wii, 8, and Double Dash. And he broke world records on 5 courses there.

This track rocks a lot!

9 Baby Park GCN

I have seen tracks that shouldn't be on here but Baby Park is one that surely shouldn't. Idiots who never played mario kart hate it but from a person who played it there is bowser shells everywhere, huge bananas and lots more of bananas, red and green shells everywhere, chain chomps, and bombs everywhere! - spodermanfan1000

The whole chaotic feeling of the track is great!

Worst Mario Kart track in the whole history. It is boring and the only thing you do is turning to the right. The creators were like "I'm bored lets make the simplest track so we don't have to work hard". Pathetic

GCN Version Good
MARIOKART 8 edition Great
But wait, DS remade it, oh let’s play it!
10 min later...

This is the worst retro track ever! It was just downgraded. No bowser shells, giant bananas or super horns... just BOOS? Literally the boos are the only item that tries to make it hectic but it fails. The demo is also bad but at least it has bowser shells. But the final version, it was like they thought “Oh, let’s downgrade! I’m sure nobody will mind”.

10 Peach Gardens DS

You may be thinking "another Peach course? Wow you must hate Peach." Well I do BUT that has nothing to do with courses, but this course is just boring - Berger

This course is more overrated than maple treeway! It's uninteresting, easy for a special cup, weak and way too long!

Wait another Peach course. Why did Princess Peach even make garden around her castle? This track is too easy. It should've been in the shell cup for Mario kart Wii

Wait another Peach course. Here's the difference. Why does Princess Peach even make a garden. This track is too easy. It should've been in the shell cup in Mario Kart Wii

The Contenders

11 Mario Circuit 3 SNES

Well as Boring as it is it not as bad as Mario Circuit 1 - Berger

Every single track on the Super Mario Kart is boring.


12 Choco Island 2

This track is flat and boring. The chocolate lake at the middle is painfully slow. And those jumps are annoying

The DS version is painful The mud slides you do the crap...I mean dirt and the bumps are so annoying and every time I play it, it feels like someone hacked my game and put the cpu difficulty to impossible, this track is god awful but the snes one is okay. - spodermanfan1000

The chocolate lake shouldn't be near the start.

I absolutely despise this track. The normal track is slippery so it’s really hard to stay on it. If you do go off road, you just completely slow down. - thunderstar1124

13 Electro Drone Wii U

Very overused track online, but the music is one of the best songs. I only find one song better than this one. (Grumble Volcano)

The arguments placed here on why this track is bad are just pathetic. "I don't like it because it's too purple" I'm sorry but that's a pity excuse. People only hate this track because they consider it "overrated", even though Mt. Wario is 100 times more praised than this track. This is one of the best tracks in MK8 and reading the comments here on why this track is bad just infuriates me. - JThrill

This track is my favorite in Mario Kart 8 and it's my 2nd favorite track of all time.

If you’re going to put this track on the list learn to spell it right idiot - thunderstar1124

18 Peach Circuit GBA

The Absolute most BORING track in the super circuit game - Berger

Boring *looks at Peach Curcuit GBA* oh no *barfs

19 Broken Pier GBA

Every two seconds a boo comes after you

20 DS Desert Hills

Honestly, I find this track to be really underrated.

The absolute worst track in the game. Tight turns, unreasonably slow offroad and a boring background
