[edit] Info

Coconut Mall is the second track of the Flower Cup in Mario Kart Wii. It would also appear in Mario Kart 7 as the third track of the Banana Cup. At first glance, Coconut Mall is VERY annoying. Even though this stage has few hazards it can change your position in a second. These hazards include off-road terrain, the fact that you can drive up an escalator that is going down, and the fact that you can get run over by a car easily. (I'm not talking about the other players). Thankfully there are a lot of booster panels.

[edit] Strategies

I recommend stay on track, drift a lot, and drive over booster panels. Just be careful of other obstacles. Also be careful when going up the escalators, some go in the up direction some go in the down direction, make sure you go on the appropriate one to get a speed boost! When the track splits near the parking lot, taking the booster panel and steering or drifting right (left in Mirror Mode) to the lower path is the fastest way out of the mall.

[edit] Shortcuts

In a lot of shortcuts you need a speed-boost item to use them successfully. That is what you need to do this one. When you get to the store with the open door drive through using the Mushroom or other speed boost so you don't get affected by the off-road terrain.

[edit] Cameo

As you drive through the mall you will notice posters on the wall showing your Miis advertise for products sold at the Coconut Mall! (That you can't actually buy.)

[edit] Mario Kart 7

Coconut Mall would return in Mario Kart 7 as the third race for the Banana Cup. There would be several changes made to the course due to the handhelds limitations. All of the advertisements and mall-goers would be removed in this version while colored arrows would be added to the escalators to show the racers which way to take. Some Item Boxes would be removed for Coins and the jumps leading out of the mall and into the parking lot are now gliding sections.
