Rainbow Road is the first Joker Cup course in F-Zero X. It is the same as in Mario Kart 64, though the track was altered to fit in line with the F-Zero theme. Barriers have been removed and in place of Chain Chomps are road bumps. The course is not completely rainbow-colored, with many dark grey areas. Rainbow tracks also show up in some X cup courses. Also note that the well-known shortcut from Mario Kart 64 results in death even if aimed properly due to the control point system used to create the F-Zero X courses. If one has the F-Zero Expansion Kit, a remix of Mario Kart 64's Rainbow Road music will play instead of the normal music.In the Mario Kart series, from the very beginning, every game has a different version of the track. This version, as stated earlier, is based on the Mario Kart 64 track of the same name. Rainbow Road serves as the final course of the Special Cup and is among the hardest of courses.
