|Retro Cup||Lightning Cup|
Sky Garden is the second track of the Lightning Cup in Mario Kart: Super Circuit. The track is in the sky and is cloud-themed. On the sides of the tracks are tan-colored clouds which slow down the kart and may save a one from falling off. Some Jump Pads can be seen here, and one of them allows you to pick up an item box. Vines are shown growing from underneath. The vines do not affect the racer, but stop him as if he ran into a wall. These can be avoided easily as they are only at the edges of the course.
There are many shortcuts here by cutting through clouds from ramps, but are only possible by using one or two Mushrooms. The one with the most impact is to use a Mushroom when going on the first very small ramp which can save up to seven seconds of time.
This track returns in Mario Kart DS as the same in the Lightning Cup, but there is an added shortcut this time where the player can use a Mushroom to hop to the other side.
- This course is the only course in the Mario Kart series to appear in the same cup twice, unless SNES Mario Circuit 3 counts: it was in Super Circuit's Extra Lightning Cup and Mario Kart Wii's Lightning Cup.
