This is Bowser Castle from Mario Kart DS. It is the third course of the Special Cup. It is basically a castle owned by Bowser.


Right now, in the Beta, the objects (e.g. the cylinder, rotating bridge, the moving lava platforms) don't seem to affect the players, due to the objects being different from the Wii version.

They're animated though. (besides the lava platforms which don't move at all)

This might change when the author figures out the puzzle with the Moving Terrain KCL type and custom object collision.
