Scorching Canyon is the first course of the Sapphire Cup in the game Donkey Kong Barrel Blast for Nintendo Wii. The course is set in a desert-like area with camels and a mine. This course also has several barrels scattered among the roads. A tornado also rages through the later parts of the course. It is also possible for the player to ride a Mine Cart during a section of the track. It is one of the two courses where a giant centipede is found, the other being Parched Palace.
The player starts near a base camp with multiple tents and camels on the sides and must avoid barrels and iron barrels scattered among the road. Before a turn the player can choose to enter a Barrel Cannon in order to be blasted into a Mine Cart and ride it through a mine tunnel for short time. If the player choose to take the right turn, they will reach a cliffside with Kong faces carved on them, and more iron barrels are encountered near the track's mine tunnel. The Surprise Panel on this part of the track will summon a Golden Banana to the right of a Zinger.
After leaving the mine area, the player will reach a long road filled with multiple barrels and iron barrels. The tornado that blows through here will destroy the barrels it runs into and also scatter the bananas around it. If the player gets too close to it, they will be blown upwards and lose quite a bit of speed.
After passing the tornado, the player should see two Surprise Panels. The one on the left will summon three barrels for opponents to run into, while the one on the right will summon a Golden Banana right before a ring of iron barrels. Once the Golden Banana is set on the track, a giant centipede will crawl out of the sand and attempt to eat it.
After dodging the ring of iron barrels, four sets of two barrels can be seen right before the finish line. In the background of the aforementioned road, temples, camels, a Sphinx with Donkey Kong's head and some palm trees are seen.
