Celestial Valley is a race track from Kirby Air Ride.[1] The track maintains its major identity, and the author intends to recreate as many elements from the original as possible, while adding some spins to make it more unique feeling and work better in Mario Kart Wii. The track's model was changed in a few ways to improve drivability and some things were also redesigned for balance.

cpfusion gave the author a version he worked on right after the Alpha 2 release and allowed him to use the work with permission, so Beta onward is a mishmash of both versions into as good a product as can be made.
