Mario Kart Hot Wheels tracks

Mario Circuit 

Inspired by old-school Mario Kart tracks, Mario Circuit is a quick loop around an obstacle-free course, complete with coins.

Bowser’s Castle Chaos 

With two independent tracks, Bowser’s Castle Chaos is perfect for a race with friends, just don’t go too fast or you might fly off the course. 

Rainbow Road Raceway 

The Hot Wheels imagining of the most famous track in Mario Kart history, Rainbow Road Raceway is a high-speed classic and necessity for every collection. 

Piranha Plant Slide 

A regular track with one hungry obstacle, Piranha Plant Slide is a quick zipped loop with one of Mario’s most common enemies waiting on every circuit. 

Chain Chomp Arena 

In this arena-style track, it’s less about finishing the race and more about avoiding the ravenous Chain Chomp in the middle. 

Bullet Bill Launcher 

If you want to get your Mario Kart Hot Wheels cars up to top speed, there’s no better or easier way than with Bullet Bill Launcher, which has no actual track, but some serious horsepower.
