Fire is one of the seven Top Ride courses in Kirby Air Ride. It is a medium-length course set in an active volcanic region devoid of life, which features lots of tight turns and some volcanic hazards.
Fire is the fourth course and features a wavy but flat track that folds in on itself and has lots of tight turns. The finish line is set at the bottom-left of the course just before the first bend, and the track moves clockwise through each bend around the calderas before returning to the relatively flat bottom portion. The default number of laps needed to complete this course is six.
There are a handful of hazards on this stage which can either aid or hinder traversing the course, as follows:
- Fumaroles - There are a handful of spots on the course which occasionally let out steam or belch a pillar of fire. When they are steaming, a racer can ride into it to get launched over the wall to a later part of the track, taking a shortcut. The fire on the other hand will knock the racer away and slow them down.
- Calderas - Built into the walls of the course are three hot calderas. Every time a racer bumps into them, they build up heat until an eruption occurs, releasing molten lava onto the track that lingers for a while. This lava will burn and slow down racers that enter it.
In Free Play mode, the hazards of Fire are disabled. This means that there are no emissions from fumaroles and no eruptions.
