Rainbow Road is the final course of the Special Cup in Mario Kart 7. It is the only Rainbow Road to be an open circuit, where all the others before and after are closed circuits. This course has not appeared in a recent Mario Kart game yet.


The course starts off with a few turns. The player then comes across some Dash Panel ramps. There is a circle where there is ramps that players can trick off of. Another reason why the ramps are there is to jump the gaps. After that, players come across a Rainbow Trampoline Mushroom, similar to the Trampoline Mushrooms in Mushroom Gorge. There are fences around the Rainbow Trampoline Mushroom, but that won't stop you from falling. There is a turn to the right where the ground is wavy, causing players to do tricks. After that, section 2 begins. There is another turn to the right that leads to a gliding section. The gliding section leads to Saturn's rings. There are holes in the rings, which can make players fall. The second half of the rings, there are some Dash Panels that leads to a Glide Panel. There is a star that you can go through to get a boost. When the gliding section ends, there are some Boost Pads you can go across, but you don't have to. The Dash Panels are on three turns. The road is wavy again but more wavy than before. There are some holes in the road, which can make players fall. But what is special, is that you don't fall off the track! Whether you fall down a hole or make it all the way to the end, you fall to the moon. There are bumps in the moon that you can do tricks off of. There are three Chain Chomps on the moon, but they are not attached to a chain. Instead, they are rolling on the moon, as obstacles. In section 3, you are off the moon and there are Rainbow Dash Panels. After that, you enter some sort of tunnel that spins. There are Dash Panels inside the tunnel, and when you exit the tunnel there are three more Dash Panels and Glide Panels.

When you go over a Dash Panel, there are some stars you can boost off of. But how? There are some ramps with Dash Panels which can help you reach the stars. If you go over a Glide Panel, you can also reach the stars; glide inside them. The course ends with an uphill and a downhill, and a ramp that is facing towards the finish line.


  • After the second section, players can jump the gap that cuts the second section's first turn.
  • At the end of the track, one can use a Mushroom to jump another gap that cuts the last turn. This requires a Mushroom, unless you cut even less the track.


  • This is the first (and so far only) Rainbow Road that is just one big lap, rather than just being three laps.
  • This course in Mario Kart 7 is the course with the most Glide Panels, being a total of 5.
  • The moon in this course gave Mario Kart 8 the idea to have something called anti-gravity.
