Boost Pads are used to grant speed boost of the arts specially essential to use in great obstacles as big jumps and slopes. Super Mario Kart Boost pads (known as Zippers in the game) appear as yellow arrows on a few courses. Mario Kart 64 Boost pads make appearances on Royal Raceway and DK's Jungle Parkway and appear as yellow pads with scrolling red arrows. Mario Kart: Super Circuit Boost pads make another comeback as yellow and red pads that appear in most of the levels. Mario Kart: Double Dash!! Boost Pads appear as flashing rainbow pads in this game but only on a few courses. In Mario Kart DS, where they are more often called Dash Panels, they appear as flashing rainbow pads again in many courses. Mario Kart Wii Boost Pads look like multicolored conveyor belts as in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! . In Mario Kart 7 the Boost Pads appear similar to the Mario Kart Wii Boost Pads but are orange in color. Mario Kart 8 Boost Pads are identical to Mario Kart 7 Boost Pads but appear as LED screens. The Boost Pads on the Retro Stages are still the same from their original game.
