Vanilla Lake

  • Several more batches of coins were added later on.
  • ? panels were shifted around slightly.
  • The off-road area within the inner wall was originally drivable, with a jump bar present to exit out. Additionally, it's possible to skip laps by driving in circles in the center because the finish line data ends there. The final removes the snowballs within the center and uses an extra tile with an out-of bounds attribute to prevent players from entering.
  • Small protruding pieces of walls were removed later on.
  • The ice blocks on the right side of the track are in two pieces formed together.

  • More ? panels were added.
  • Many jump bars were removed.
  • A majority of the track is much thinner in width.
  • Aside from the lack of thwomps, the track has object positions, but they appear to be the same as the piranha plants from the removed Choco Island 3 course.
  • Skidding on the track uses Ghost Valley's brown smoke colors. This means that Rainbow Road's palette was created using Ghost Valley's palette, and the smoke color wasn't updated yet.
