Mario Kart Stadium is the first new race course in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It is the first course of the Mushroom Cup. Its music was adapted from Mario Circuit, which was written by Shiho Fujii.

Mario Kart Stadium

Mario Kart Stadium is the first Mario Kart course themed after Mario Kart itself. Some of the most defining features of the stadium is the big Mario statue found under a big curving anti-gravity turn, and the many colored anti-gravity paths placed after the start/finish line.

The course is of the most vivid in the Mario Kart series, bursting with lots of signs, stands and confetti to convince you that you're really in the greatest racing stadium there is.

Basic Layout

While the course may be spectacular, it is among the most basic in the Mario Kart series, starting with a big uphill straightaway before it turns into a huge anti-gravity section that takes you up a big turn (as seen in the picture above). You then drop off of the turn in your hanglider and drive away to the finish line. Pretty simple, right? Well, it doesn't look as simple as it sounds.
