Start your engines, because Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is getting a whole heap of new tracks on December 7. Booster Course Pass wave 3 will add two new Cups and eight new tracks, including the frolicking fields of DS Peach Garden and the autumnal Wii Maple Treeway. But most exciting of all is the addition of the most iconic Mario Kart track of all time: Rainbow Road from Mario Kart 7 on the Nintendo 3DS. Finally!

Here’s the full list of tracks being added in Booster Course Pass wave 3:

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Rock Cup

  • London Loop (Mario Kart Tour)
  • Boo Lake (Mario Kart: Super Circuit)
  • Rock Rock Mountain (Mario Kart 7)
  • Maple Treeway (Mario Kart Wii)

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Moon Cup

  • Berlin Byways (Mario Kart Tour)
  • Peach Gardens (Mario Kart DS)
  • Merry Mountain (Mario Kart Tour)
  • Rainbow Road (Mario Kart 7)

The Christmas-themed Merry Mountain is dropping just in time for the holidays, while the haunted Boo Lake is perfect for anyone who isn’t ready to move on from Halloween. Take the high altitude twists and turns of Rock Rock Mountain carefully and leap through autumnal foliage in Maple Treeway — just don’t disturb the Wigglers on their daily stroll.

They’ll join the tracks added in Booster Course Pass wave 1 and 2, like N64 Choco Mountain and Tour Sydney Spring. The remaining three waves (and 24 tracks) will be released next year.

The Booster Course Pass is free when you subscribe to the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack ($59.95 for 12 months), or you can buy it outright from the Nintendo eShop for $37.50. Subscribing or buying it now will give you access to waves 1, 2 and 3 and all three remaining waves as soon as they release.
