Light is one of the seven Top Ride courses in Kirby Air Ride. It is a short course set in an outer space installation, which features light rails that can potentially be used to make massive shortcuts.
Light is the fifth course and features an open track built of hexagonal tiles. The path itself is fairly straightforward, with a layout similar to the Grass course but this time headed counterclockwise and with the finish line at the right. The default number of laps needed to complete this course is six.
The main feature of this course are the light rails, which have entry points at specific locations on the track. These rails can only be used when the light at the entry point is on, and switch on and off at random intervals. When used, the light rail activates, taking the racer to the predetermined exit point. Based on which rail is taken, this can result in a very large shortcut, and repeat successes with these rails can result in very fast races. In addition, at various points on the course, small hexagonal columns appear which serve as obstacles. Running into one breaks the column, but slows down the racer in the process.
In Free Play mode, the hazards of Light are disabled. This means that there are no breakable columns and the light rails do not activate.
