Millions of racers around the world are having fun with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s Booster Course Pass tracks. There’s plenty of secrets and shortcuts to discover, but in the case of Ninja Hideaway, there’s also a sneaky softlock.

As seen in the video above, if you hit a ramp about a third of the way through the course and land by a particular sign, you’ll be stuck there until the race is over. There’s no way to reverse course and get back on track, which guarantees you a last-place finish.

When racing about in this area, make sure you stay away from this dead zone! Hopefully Nintendo fixes this up in the near future.

Thanks to CM30 for the heads up!

I don't remember any such race ruining glitches in the original Wii U MK8 tracks or the DLC.

Help me bro, I'm stuck!
One of the first things I learned in 200cc mode is to not do tricks anymore on ramps. It screws you over SO hard.
