Luigi Circuit is a recurring course in the Mario Kart series.


Mario Kart 64

Luigi Raceway MK64

 Luigi Raceway makes its first appearance in Mario Kart 64, better known as Luigi Circuit outside Japan. It resembles a typical Formula 1 race. The race has 2 corners, the one near the tunnel is longer than another one. Luigi's hot-air ballon (blimp) can be seen during the race and has single Item Box under, allowing players to get a Blue Shell. It also appears in Mario Kart 7 (see Mario Kart 7 section for more information).

Mario Kart: Super Circuit

 Luigi Circuit again appeared in Mario Kart: Super Circuit as its second appearance. It is the first course to have rainy weather, the one being Neo Bowser City. The course is rather long, and it may take about 2 minutes to the complete the whole entire race. One of the most obvious differences other than having a rainy weather and being too long is that the course is rather difficult, and is not recommended for beginners. 

In the background, there is white building showing numbers 64 and 65. The blimp showing Luigi can be seen.

Mario Kart: Double Dash‼

 Luigi Circuit again appeared in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! as first track of Mushroom Cup. Its shape resembles number 8. It is very simple, and is ideal for beginners.

The course has 2 turns, each of them having boost zippers. As the track does not have guardrails, players may cheat in this course by making U-turn and ignoring the turns. If you cheat, Lakitu may force you to make U-turn again and get back on course. 

Chain Chomp can be seen in middle of the race. He will try to obstruct players' progress by lunging at them, so a caution is required to avoid being hit by him. 

Luigi's blimp can be seen in the air. However the blimp always stays in the air and does not have an item box - just like what happened in the previous game. At the beginning of the race, Luigi's yellow garage (possibly pits) can be seen, making the whole course resemble a typical F1 race. It also appears in Mario Kart DS (see below for more info).

Mario Kart DS

MainFigure-8 Circuit & Luigi's Mansion Luigi Circuit did not appear in this game, but there are new tracks similar to this - they are Figure-8 Circuit and Luigi's Mansion. Some Luigi's previous circuits also appeared in this game.

  • MKDD (GCN): Luigi Circuit (GameCube) appeared in this game. It is very similar, but the road is slightly wider. It is very hard to tell if there are modifications though.
  • MKSC (GBA): Luigi Circuit (Game Boy Advance) appeared in this game. It is nearly exactly the same, apart from having good graphics.

Luigi Circuit, which is a simple, straight-forward starting course in Mario Kart Wii gives an idea of how the game can start your abilities. The long straight that runs parallel to the finish line has an off-road ramp on the left-hand side with a power-up on it, but you'll need a boost from a Mushroom or a Star in order to reach it. Try to use the speed pads on the final wide bend for a huge jolt that will see you through to the finish line. Plenty of straights also make this circuit full of opportunities for using a Wheelie Boost when riding a bike.

Mario Kart 7

Main: Toad Circuit Luigi Circuit again did not appear in this game, but it was replaced by Toad Circuit. Toad Circuit is very similar to Luigi Circuit in Mario Kart Wii, apart from having a bridge, everything being flipped (opposite side), Luigi's balloon being replaced by 3 Toad balloons (red, yellow, and blue) and Luigi's cap being took off from the top of the stadium. Luigi's Raceway also appeared in this course (see below):

  • Luigi's Raceway: Luigi's first circuit ever made appeared in this circuit as first track of Shell Cup. It is almost the same, but the road is slightly more pale and players can get the chance to go on the blue platform (which is located on the right side of the bends), which is an ideal place to go on if the normal road is crowded. No changes other than this can be found.
