Yoshi Falls is a course that appears in the Mario Kart series.


Mario Kart DS

Yoshi Falls first appeared in Mario Kart DS for the Nintendo DS as the second race in the Mushroom Cup.

It is a small course that circles around a giant Yoshi Egg (a similarly large Yoshi Egg that also appeared in the Nintendo 64 iteration of the Mario Kart series, Mario Kart 64). The stage was among the twenty courses that could be played over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, and was popular among those who wanted a short race.

The missions 1-3 and 3-4 take place in this course. The first one has Yoshi as a playable character needing to destroy 10 Item Boxes with Mushrooms in it, while the other has Peach as the playable character where she needs to win against him in a race.

Mario Kart Wii

Yoshi Falls later appeared in the Wii video game Mario Kart Wii being the second race in the Shell Cup in the game.

The course design was almost identical to the Nintendo DS version, yet with enhanced graphics. Unlike Mario Kart DS, all of the stages in Mario Kart Wii could be played online, Yoshi Falls included.

Official Descriptions

Mario Kart DS

  • Sites
    • NA "Huge waterfalls cut through the course in Yoshi Falls. Try to hit as many dash panels as you can, and don't follow the water over the edge!"
    • EU "This sloping circuit is awash with waterfalls, so caution is advised. Taking the lower path can give you the edge, until you fall off it; therefore less skilled drivers are urged to take the high road and make full use of the plentiful Dash Panels and Item Boxes."

Mario Kart Wii

  • Sites
    • NA "The exact same as on the DS, only the second bridge is now a great spot to catch some air and trick a Mini-Turbo."
    • EU "Will you take the high road or the low road? Those waterfalls might look pretty, but driving through them can be dangerous!


A tournament in Mario Kart Wii took place on this course as the July 2009 second tournament. It was a Wii Wheel only GP race, where players had to use the Mushroom Gorge mushrooms as alternate routes to get around.
