A Fly Pad is the equivalent of a Boost Pad, except the player doesn't get a speed boost from it, and it is blue instead of orange. Fly Pads first appear in Mario Kart 7. Fly Pads always appear at the edge of a ramp, while Boost Pads can also be flat on the ground. At the end of a Fly Pad, a player's glider will be activated. Tricks can also be performed on a Fly Pad, but here the player will get the boost after they leave the pad, rather than when landing on the ground. They also appear in Mario Kart 8.
