Polychrome Path (formerly known as Rainbow Raceway) is a custom track created by Tara. The concept behind the track is what if Rainbow Road was a starter track. v1.0 – v1.1.1 feature three hairpin turns to start, with jump ramps for tricks and a split path section to end the lap. However, v2.0 features a revised layout and visuals to create a more complete and interesting track whilst retaining the same concept. The track has been discontinued since v2.1.1.

Slot Information

It is recommended to put this track on slot 4.4 because of the road and wall SFX.
