Mario Kart Stadium is the introductory course of Mario Kart 8. It is also the first track on the new Mushroom Cup. It is a huge circuit with anti-gravity sections set in the middle of a huge arena. A giant statue of Mario in his Standard Kart is in the center of the stadium.

The staff ghost kart setup is Mario driving a Sports Coupe with Standard tires and a Super Glider.

The course begins with a short straightaway followed by a right turn. The track then turns right with three colored paths that stay together: an inner blue path, a yellow path in the center that says Mushroom Cup on it, and an outer red path with Boost Pads. The track then approaches the only anti-gravity part in the track followed by a left turn. Next, the course goes up and down a raised hairpin turn, followed by a gliding area, and one more left turn to the finish line.

Shortcuts

  • After the first split path anti-gravity section, there is a dirt section that the player can boost through.
  • Right after the first anti-gravity strip, on the left, there is a ramp that cuts off the corner just before the huge turn.
  • Near the end of the course, just after the gliding ramp, a boost can be used across the sand to bypass the final turn. It is easy to notice the shortcut because there are pipes in the sand.

Trivia

  • Throughout the course, all flags and pit stops are only themed around Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad, Yoshi, and Bowser. Interestingly, they are the only characters to appear in every Mario Kart game since Super Mario Kart, however this may merely be a coincidence.
  • Two signs at the end of the course have team names on them, the teams being Mario Super Motor Team, Luigi Gusters, Toad Mushroom Powered, Yoshi Runners, Lord Bowser, and Princess Peach. The same team names can be found in different courses throughout the game.
  • This is the only track in the Mushroom Cup to not have an underwater section.
  • The course has a total of 29 obtainable coins.
