Dino Dino Jungle is the second course in Mario Kart Double Dash's Special Cup and also appears Mario Kart 7 as the fourth race for the Lightning Cup. This course starts out in a jungle with not many obstacles in your way. As you continue you'll reach area with a blue dinosaur that will crush you if you're in the shadow of it's foot. Following the dinosaur, you'll cros a borderless bridge, leading to a cave. Inside the cave are multiple geysers that should be avoided. Outside the cave you will approach another bridge with the head of the dinosaur from earlier in the lap, trying to get in your way. The course ends with 4 geysers directly before the finish line.
 Course Layout
Dino Dino Jungle is located in a prehistoric jungle that includes canyons, a lake and dinosaurs that wander around the track. There are obstacles found in the track like the large sauropod in the middle of the track, and geysers that can leap vehicles over one another. It starts off in a jungle, with Item Boxes and logs on the ground. Hitting the logs will make the racer leap. It will take the player to a canyon with a blue Sauropod dinosaur that stands in the middle of the track, stomping the ground to crush or spin out the racers that are below it. Passing through a curly crystal cave, the character can go through a dangerous bridge with three branches that leads to a crystal cave with water geysers, that ends at the top of the canyon.
The racer will cross a bridge to the other side of the canyon with a sauropod moves its head. Past the bridge, the racers will reenter the jungle with geysers that takes the racer to the finish line.
While in the cave, stay towards the right and you will see a small bottomless pit that can be jumped over by using a Mushroom.
 Mario Kart 7
Dino Dino Jungle would return in Mario Kart 7 as the forth track for the Lightning Cup. Inside the cavern, the mushroom-only shortcut contains a gliding pad. Past the cavern, there will be a ramp with a gliding pad, and the head and neck of the dinosaur will block the path of flight.
