Future Fun Land is a planet featured in Diddy Kong Racing and its remake Diddy Kong Racing DS. It is the homeworld of Wizpig, set in outer space away from Timber's Island. Future Fun Land is the fifth and final world. It does not have its own Challenge Level (or Wish Race in Diddy Kong Racing DS), and is the only world to not have one.

Future Fun Land can only be accessed once the player's racer has won all four Trophy Races and Wizpig's First Strike. Once this is done, the racer must head to a billboard in the beach area of Timber's Island; this triggers a cutscene, revealing the lighthouse to be a disguised rocket of Wizpig's. The rocket blasts off into space, revealing a pad that takes the player's racer to Future Fun Land.

The background music for some of the courses here varies depending on which version the player is in; Star City shares its music with Spacedust Alley in the original while it has a new track in the Nintendo DS remake.


For courses where two or all three vehicles (Car, Hovercraft, or Plane) can be used, vehicles listed in bold print are the mandated vehicle during Adventure Mode and the Trophy Race, and other vehicles can only be used in a Time Trial or after the course is completed.

Car, Hovercraft, Plane Spacedust Alley is a course that takes place in a brightly-colored valley, where players travel through tunnels. Obstacles include horizontal lasers, palm trees, and stalagmites and stalactites. The track features a spaceship in the shape of Wizpig's head, which attempts to shoot down racers during one segment of the track. In Diddy Kong Racing DS, the background music that plays in the course is changed to Spaceport Alpha.

Car, Hovercraft Darkmoon Caverns takes place in an enclosed area, featuring many tunnels and craters. In segments of the course, spaceships shoot beams at particular locations, serving as obstacles (although the beams were removed in Diddy Kong Racing DS). The most prominent feature of the course are two large loops at the end of the course, which function similarly to the loop in Walrus Cove. In the credits sequence, for the first time players beat Wizpig, the music from this course is the one that plays. It is the only course where racers cannot fly in planes.

Car, Hovercraft, Plane Spaceport Alpha has the players drive across narrow corridors. A section of a track has sharp vertical curves that make it tricky for planes to fly in, while cars get propelled upward via a fan. Near the end of a track, a barrage of lasers from many different turrets are shot, making this section a hazard for planes to cross. In Diddy Kong Racing DS, the lasers has been removed and this track's music has been replaced with an original tune, with the original game's tune being moved to Spacedust Alley.

Star City

Car, Hovercraft, Plane Star City is a metropolis in space. This is the only course that does not have lasers nor any obstacles of any sort, aside from the lamps in the city. The city itself features skyscrapers and 90° turns, making it trickier for cars and hovercrafts to navigate.
Wizpig Strikes Back.png
Boss race:
Wizpig Strikes Back
Golden Balloon DKR64 sprite.png 47 and all four T.T. Amulet pieces Plane The boss of Future Fun Land is Wizpig, whose second race takes place there. Wizpig can only be raced if they have all four pieces of the T.T. Amulet. This time, instead of moving on foot, Wizpig rides on a missile, and the racer uses a Plane. The location has asteroids, robots, laser blasts, and electric fences for course hazards. Clearing this course unlocks the Adventure 2 mode.


  • Diddy Kong Racing Nintendo Player's Guide (page 106): "Just when you thought it was safe for you and your friends to celebrate Wizpig's defeat, ol' bacon-breath had to crash your party. He may have rocketed back to his home planet, but that doesn't mean your racing days are over. He invaded your world; now it's your turn to invade his. Race through his futuristic sci-fi planet to settle the score."
