Yoshi Circuit is a track in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! that also returns as a retro course in Mario Kart DS. It is the 3rd track in the Star Cup or the last track in the Lightning Cup, depending on the game. It is owned by Yoshi and the overhead view of the track also reveals that it is shaped like Yoshi (hence it's name). There are many Piranha Plants in this area. The music is the same as the game's Mario Circuit and Luigi Circuit. There are also many tight curves in this track, especially on the tail turn. The Daisy Cruiser can be seen in the background. This track is Yoshi's featured course (in the Standard YS). This track returns in Mario Kart DS. It is the final track in the Lightning Cup. The underground path has been removed, but the creek shortcut is still able to use. This is one of the most technical courses in the whole Mario Kart series.
There are two shortcuts on the Mario Kart: Double Dash version in this course and both have to be used by a Mushroom. One in Mario Kart DS:
- One is at the beginning that goes over a creek, skipping a turn. This can be done on both versions; notably, karts with high off-road and strong mini-turbos can pass through this shortcut without the use of a mushroom (i.e. Egg 1, Dry Bomber.)
- Another one is a tunnel (an underground path) that skips a few turns. The underground tunnel requires a mushroom to reach, skipping the grass and some water along the way.
Mission 6-6 takes place in this course. Yoshi has to perform 14 power-slide mini-turbos in a lap.
