Vanilla Lake is the third course in Star Cup. This course is truly short but very hard. The ice causes the player to sometimes drive uncontrollably, there are water hazards, and there are ice blocks that can get in the way occasionally. Thick snow also can slow down the player. This track returns in Mario Kart: Super Circuit in the Extra Star Cup, with the pipes removed.
