III. Courses-Shortcuts
----------------------------------

MUSHROOM CUP COURSES
--------------------------------------------
LUIGI CIRCUIT
---------------------
Though the chain chomp is a bit noisy, this is a relatively peaceful course.
The front straight and back straight run parallel to each other, so you'll see
Your rivals coming and going.
Whether you opt the outside the outside line and the dash panels or cut close 
And stay on the inside track is up to you.
------------
Shortcut
------------
When you come up to the chain chomp turn right instead of following the track 
It is a bit quicker.
------------------------
PEACH BEACH
-------------------------
Princess Peach's favourite beach resort! Beware the Cataquacks wandering 
About the shoreline. The course changes with the tide, watch the waterline 
For your chance for a big shortcut!
------------
Shortcut
------------
When the first corner is coming instead of following the beach go left and you will 
See a dash panel go on the dash panel to cut across the track and you will rejoin 
With the beach at the end.
------------------------
BABY PARK
------------------------
This has to be the EASIEST track on the game!! It's just an oval shaped track how hard could it be....
------------
Shortcut
------------
None.... That I have found...yet
------------------------------
DRY DRY DESERT
------------------------------
This is probably 1 of the most annoying tracks cause of the tornados, the circle that sucks you in to it
-----------------------------
------------
Shortcut
------------
None.... That I have found...yet

FLOWER CUP COURSES
----------------------------------------------
MUSHROOM BRIDGE
----------------------------------------------
One of Mushroom Kingdom's most famous landmarks. This bridge is well travelled, so be careful not 
To run into any commuters. The car carrying all the mushrooms looks strangely inviting, though.........
 ------------
Shortcut
------------
When you come out of the first tunnel, (have a mushroom ready) on your right there will be a hill, use your mushroom
To go over it.
---------------------------------
MARIO CIRCUIT
-----------------------------------
This is the main circuit in MARIO KART DOUBLE DASH!! Familiar denizens of the Mushroom Kingdom can be spotted there.
The road's filled with curves, so this is a good place to practice corning and drifting.
 ------------
Shortcut
------------
None.... That I have found...yet
--------------------------
DAISY CRUISER
--------------------------
Hey daisy got a BOAT...with moving dinner tables COOOL!! But they get in the way so they no help at all.
------------
Shortcut
------------
After the moving tables soon you'll see a pit, drive into it and drive into the red fan.
--------------------------------
WALUIGI STADIUM
-------------------------------
This track is a good place to practice drifting round some corners watch out for those rings of fire. This track can be quite annoying.
------------
Shortcut
------------
None.... That I have found...yet
-------------------------------------------
STAR CUP
-------------------------------------------
SHERBERT LAND
-------------------------------------------
A beautiful course covered in a blanket of white snow. Don't be lulled into complacency though-the ice is VERY slippery! Careless driving
Could
Cost you the race!  
------------
Shortcut
------------
None.... That I have found...yet
-----------------------------------
MUSHROOM CITY
------------------------------------
This course takes you through downtown of mushroom city in dead of night. It's easy to take a wrong turn and get lost. The key to victory is
Avoiding inner
City traffic.
------------
Shortcut
------------
After the first corner there is a intersection you can either go forward of right, go forward the turn right when you can the another intersection,
Left or forward, go left
Go left and were the first intersection is if u go up you will see a pink lane go through it.
------------------------------
YOSHI CIRCUIT
-----------------------------
A Track shaped like  Yoshi what more could you want.... 
------------
Shortcut
------------
1.When your coming up to the first tunnel you'll see a jump but you will defiantly need a mushroom to get over the jump.
2.When you come out of the tunnel the barrier around the corner will stop and you'll be able to ride off the edge but once 
Again you'll need a mushroom.
------------------------------------------
DONKEY KONG MOUNTAIN
------------------------------------------
A circuit with a cannon, which takes you flying through the air at 195MPH!!! Watch out for the boulders that come tumbling down they can be 
Annoying
------------
Shortcut
------------
None.... That I have found...yet
------------------------------
SECRET CUPS!!!!!
------------------------------
SPECIAL CUP
------------------------------
WARIO COLOSEUM
------------------------------
This track is FAR to complicated to explain to many corners I think but the track is quite easy just don't muck up since if your on the final lap
And fall of the edge it will
Be quite hard to catch up.
------------
Shortcut
------------
When you come up to the bit where you can go around the dash panel, go on the dash panel as this will save some time.
-----------------------------
DINO DINO JUNGLE
-----------------------------
A jungle with a dinosaur in it!!?? I thought those where extinct? Ah well who cares this is quite a tricky circuit so be careful.
------------
Shortcut
------------
When you go on to the tunnel with those jets of water shooting up as soon as you enter turn right, (BUT you will need a mushroom go over the
 Jump) while using the mushroom 
And you should make it this will save time.
--------------------------------------------
BOWSERS CASTLE
---------------------------------------------
This is quite complicated this castle. Watch out for those square stones, which go in the air and come crashing down, as they will slow you 
Down if you get crushed
------------
Shortcut
------------
When you see Bowser shooting fireballs out of his mouth there will be a turn going left go straightforward where there is no barrier in the wall 
Go over it. Try not to land in the lava.
------------------------------------
RAINBOW ROAD
------------------------------------
Just like the track in Super Mario Kart for GBA but different. This track is quite tough cause round some corners there are no barriers so you
Can easily fall of the edge.
------------
Shortcut
------------
None.... That I have found...yet
------------------------------------------------------
