Captain Falcon's Twister Race is a single-player minigame within Wii U game Nintendo Land. It is based upon the racing aspect of the F-Zero series.
The player's Mii controls a clockwork version of the Blue Falcon through a typical F-Zero course. The goal of the game is to reach the end of the course, hitting checkpoints along the way to ensure time does not run out. There are other machines racing, though these do not move particularly quickly, and it would not matter if one of these machines crossed the finish line before the Blue Falcon, as the only objective of the game is to reach the end of the course. The player can guide the Blue Falcon over boost pads and ramps, and the courses have Mario-style invincibility stars scattered throughout, which temporarily allow the player to safely drive through any obstacle. As the name of the game would imply, there are also twisters on the course, which slow down the Blue Falcon. Later sections of the track feature bombs, which cause an instant Game Over if hit, and pillars which stop the Blue Falcon dead if not negotiated. After the player successfully completes all 12 areas of the course for the first time, the player will be rewarded with a star above the attraction's entrance. The next time the player clears all 12 areas, the player can continue playing to face a subsequent 12 Extra Areas.
The player must hold the GamePad controller vertically, and turn the GamePad to steer the Blue Falcon through the course. The GamePad's screen displays an overhead view of the track
