The course mainly takes place on a checkerboard with somewhat medieval-styled castles among other structures. about one third of the way through the track, the racecourse goes through a dark city scape illuminated by neon lights and rails which takes place above the clouds. The course has almost every enemy in the game in it, and has many twists and turns.
