Rainbow Road is the final track of the Special Cup in Mario Kart Wii. This tricky course has a Super Mario Galaxy theme. It is quite possibly the hardest track to stay on besides Super Mario Kart's Rainbow Road. This course has not appeared in a recent Mario Kart game yet.


It features many Dash Panels and almost no railings. This course features the only mandatory half-pipe pad in the game. It also has a cannon called the Star Shooter that shoots you up like the pipe on the Rainbow Road in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, but it is not shaped like a pipe; it is shaped like a rainbow tunnel.

The track starts with a straight down segment out of the finish line. You then go off a jump, then turn left 90 degrees, go through several boost pads, and make another 180 left turn with a halfpipe. This leads to a wavy road segment where you can do tricks. After this is a figure eight section. Following this, you weave around a few tight turns to enter the Star Shooter. Following the Star Shooter, there is a curve and a spin with some rings. Then there is two split directions, followed by dash panels to the finish lines. (Watch out, there are NO guardrails there.) The track's texture is translucent. This track is above the Earth's stratosphere, showing parts of the World.


There are 3 shortcuts in this track. When you reach the part of the track with two holes, use a mushroom or a star and jump over the holes. You MUST use tricks while going over the holes, otherwise this won't work. Another, less known shortcut is after clearing the area with two holes, use a mushroom, star, or wheelie (if you have done the first shortcut), and skip the first turn by going into the space to the left of it. This is a extremely hard shortcut and should only be tried on Time Trial mode. The third, which is called Rainbow Road moonjump, is a shortcut that, at the beginning of the lap, shroom then press the drift button at the right time. It done correctly, you can float in the air. It doesn't save a lot of time but it is fairly easy to do.

For staff ghosts, Nin*Konno uses Rosalina in the Shooting Star/Twinkle Star, while Nin*Syun1 uses her in the Jetsetter/Aero Glider. According to the Mario Kart Wii Channel, the world record for this track is approximately 2 minutes, 27 seconds. This course should be mostly used by characters with a high handling stat such as the lightweights, King Boo, and some of the middleweights such as Peach, Daisy, Mario, Bowser Jr. and Yoshi.
