Overview of the track
|First appearance||Mario Kart 64 (1997)|
|Appears in|| Mario Kart 64|
Mario Kart 8
|Retro Cup||Shell Cup|
Toad's Turnpike, (called Toad Highway in the Japanese version), is the first course of the Flower Cup appearing in Mario Kart 64. It is city-themed, being much like Mushroom Bridge, Mushroom City (Mario Kart: Double Dash!!), Shroom Ridge (Mario Kart DS), and Moonview Highway (Mario Kart Wii). It is Toad's track.
This course takes place at nighttime on a Highway, with many trucks and cars which are very harmful. If hit, the player flips out. Like later city courses, not only will the Engine Class affect how fast the player goes, but also how fast the vehicles go on the road. If on 150cc, not only do players and CPU go faster, but so do the hazardous vehicles on the road. On some cars there are ramps.
The course returns in Mario Kart 8 as a Retro Track. The course now features cars with Jump Panels and Glide Panels, along with certain walls featuring the Anti-Gravity feature. The item boxes also now will appear along the race track, and not in the corners. The vehicles here are updated to a more modern look. It is the fourth race course of the Shell Cup.
