Wario Stadium is a race course in both Mario Kart 64 and Mario Kart DS, though they are not the same.

Mario Kart 64

Wario Stadium is known to be one of the longest courses in Mario Kart 64, resembling a dirt-bike track. The Mario Kart 64 manual states that Wario made and built this stage for himself. This track isn't known to be the most difficult track, but is known to have a jump that if missed or messed up, can send the player back multiple places. This track appears in the Star Cup.

Mario Kart DS

This track is different from the Mario Kart 64 version, and is raced on the Special Cup. This course has a lot of fireballs, muddy sections, speed boosts, etc. This version is known to be easier and is generally considered better than the MK64 track with the same name.

Mario Kart 8

This rendition adds antigravity and water elements. After the sets of jumps, there is a curve suspended in the air with a fire bar at the end. Not too far after with some jumps, the racers jump into water. Exiting the water leads to a gliding section with a bunch of coins to fly in. The course now takes place during the day, unlike the original.


  • Interestingly, there is a glitch that the player is possible to perform when you start the track and after hopping off the bump hop again and you'll skip a chunk of the track. This shortcut is great for speedruns, but can be difficult to pull off.
  • The Mario Kart 8 rendition has a hanging sign for the finish line. Along with the new Mario Circuit, these two courses can have the racers bump into the sign.
  • As of Mario Kart 8, the N64 track is the only one yet to be remade.
