MKDD Yoshi Circuit

Yoshi Circuit.

Yoshi Circuit is the third track in the Star Cup in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and the last course in the Lightning Cup in Mario Kart DS. It is the third track in the Star Cup. When seeing the overview of this track, it is an island shaped like Yoshi. There are many Piranha Plants in this area. The music is the same as the game's Mario Circuit and Luigi Circuit. There are also many tight curves in this track. The Daisy Cruiser can be seen in the background. In Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, 150cc or Mirror Mode, some of your opponents may drift the wrong way and get stuck for a while in the turn after passing the area with one Piranha Plant. This happens more often with characters like Wario or Petey Piranha. There is a banner of Birdo near the end of the track.

Mario Kart DS

This track returns in Mario Kart DS. It is the final track in the Lightning Cup. The underground path has been removed, but the creek shortcut is still able to use.

Mario Kart 8

This track returns in Mario Kart 8 as part of the first DLC pack. It is the first track in the Egg Cup. This makes it the first track announced to be a retro track for the second time. The creek shortcut still remains and there is a waterfall at the creek shortcut.

It returns again in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, being unlocked from the start this time.


There are two short cuts in this course and both have to be used by a Mushroom:

  • One is at the beginning that goes over a creek, skipping a turn.
  • Another one is a tunnel (an underground path) that skips a few turns. The underground tunnel has to be used by a Mushroom or a Star, so that the player will go fast on the grass and will skip some water to get into the it. Without an item that can boost your speed, it is impossible to make the shortcut. Unless, you can put a Fake Item box on the edge and then on the next lap you can charge right in it to flip yourself in the shortcut.
