Very well done and enjoyable to watch.  Love that music.

I don't like how the track is so wide it takes away all the danger of falling. The original was all about going as fast as you could and managing the turns. This one is alright, but it doesn't hold a candle to how awesome the original was.

At least they didn't add railings to any edges.

I forgot how short the SNES tracks were!

Well done to the guy who raced slowly around the SNES track to make it a good side-by-side comparison, otherwise it'd have been over way too soon and not made sense.  :cool;

They actually added a rail at the start/finish line, which ruins my tradition of doing a suicide dive at the end of the race.

I think the reason they made it wider is because Super Mario Kart has much sharper turning, so they had to make it wider to compensate for the wider turning radius in MK8. Most of the retro tracks are wider and it's probably for this reason.

They won't give us Baby Park, but they force ANOTHER Rainbow Road on us? Ugh.

The Excitebike track is Baby Park minus the suck.

Um, no. There is a reason people love Baby Park, it's a great time. The Excitebike track does't look like it will have the same fun. It will still be good, but lacks the charm of Baby Park. We do't need THREE different Rainbow Road tracks.

If they brought back Baby Park, it would be ruined by having just 3 laps.

MythtendoNovember 17, 2014

That is what I didn't like when it was in DS, if they have the original amount the it would be one of the best tracks.

Baby Park would be crazy.  The crowding would be pure chaos.  Items would be everywhere.

Best track ever?

I like the wider track for this one.  The other one just frustrated me. :^/
It's probably the easiest rainbow road in the game.
