Ancient Lake is a race track from Diddy Kong Racing.[1] It is the first track encountered in the game, and is therefore quite simple. The entire track is shaped similar to N64 Luigi Raceway. The first version was DJ Lowgey's first ported custom track. The second release by Mewtwo2000 features shading, original trees and sky, animated water, camera fixes, and balloons replacing the item boxes. The large dinosaur found in the original track is currently not present.

v2.0 includes seven different track files; the only differences between them are the item boxes. The ones named "balloon" have balloon-looking item boxes. The ones named "itembox" use standard Mario Kart Wii item boxes. The "DKR" versions feature them only where balloons were placed in Diddy Kong Racing, while the "extra" versions feature item boxes in different placements instead. The "all" versions feature item boxes from both the "DKR" and "extra" versions. These versions were condensed by Wiimm in v2.1 to only the "extra" version.
