The race starts out at the base of the volcano. The player races over volcanic rock and lava collecting the bananas that are scattered over the track. Heading into the volcano, there is a Yellow Launcher Barrel that will shoot the player forward into the cave, where there are more bananas and a couple of Flip-Flaps that can be easily taken down.
Inside the volcano, there is a "!" panel that will drop wooden barrels onto the track ahead. Just beyond the panel, there is a crater where volcanic rocks will drop and hurt the player if they run into them. Once past that, there will be two maces that move up and down. They will slow the player down if they run into it. The track goes out through another cave where there are several TNT Barrels before the player has to race alongside the side of the volcano. There are more craters where hot rocks will fall and hit whoever is unlucky enough to be under them when they fall.
The track goes back inside the volcano, where the player has the option of continuing on the track they are on or get in a Yellow Launcher Barrel that is on the left side of the track. The player must shake the Wii Remote at the right time to get into either one of two tracks, one being a lower track with several dangerous items, such as maces, iron barrels, and flaming bananas. The second track is a higher track where the player can get many bananas.
If the player does not make the Yellow Launcher Barrel, they will race down the volcano. There is a Flip-Flap that can be attacked, and there are many bananas and barrels. There is also a Yellow Launcher Barrel that the player can jump into to get them to the bottom faster. At the base of the slope, there is a Golden Banana surrounded by two iron barrels on either side. The player flies through another cave to get to the finish line.
