This is CyrusTheYoshi's first port from Mario Kart DS, as well as his first track with vertex colors. He wanted to port a version of the track that stayed faithful to the original DS remake, as he felt that the only other two ports (one by sup3rsmash8, and the other by Kazuo and MrKoeikoei) that existed were either out of date or strayed away from Mario Kart DS too much. The author also wanted a version of the track that did not use jump pad ramps, as he personally did not like them and felt it would play better with normal ramps. This version of the track also features a custom Thwomp model that the author ported from Mario Kart DS himself.

CyrusTheYoshi also made an alternative version for those who do not like the pixelated look of the DS textures. This version uses higher quality textures and better animations.
