- This article is about the Top Ride course. For the Copy Ability, see Water. For the environmental feature, see Water (environment).
Water is one of the seven Top Ride courses in Kirby Air Ride. It is a long course set on a stony beach, featuring a wavy track and flowing water that affects the trajectory of racers.
Water is the sixth course and features a long wavy track, with tight turns similar to those of the Fire course, but fewer in number and larger. The track runs on a counter-clockwise circuit starting in the bottom-left. The default number of laps needed to complete this course is five.
Water is perhaps the least hazardous of the courses in Top Ride, though the water features do pose a minor challenge to racers. The two rivers that flow through the course do slightly affect racer speed, and if a racer runs into a waterfall, they will be thrown out the other side after spinning around for a moment. Down at the bottom of the course, a series of ocean waves come in and out, which can affect the speed and trajectory of racers passing through.
In Free Play mode, the hazards of Water are disabled. This means that the waterfall cannot be interacted with and the waves do not come in.
