Nostalgic Bowser's Castle is Omonimo747's first custom track. It is built following N64 Bowser's Castle's style. The track features, in addition to the elements from the original track, an off-road way with some trickable bumps, more wood bridges, some pillars inside the castle, some portraits, torches (sun and taimatsu), more boost ramps, a carpet with Bowser's figure, and higher buildings built on the rock, instead of being plunged in the lava.

Slot Information

It is recommended to put this track on slot 8.4 because of the KCL sound triggers.
