Overview

Sky High Island is a custom track created by Jasperr. It takes place on some rocky islands surrounded by a volcano and a sandy beach. Going down into the cave after the start line will put you into a pipe that will then launch you to the next island with a split path, which eventually leads down onto the beach. From the beach, the players will enter a pipe which will then lead into a volcanic area filled with Thwomps and lava geysers. Exiting the mountain will then bring the players back to the beginning of the track.
