Get racing!!! Already finished Turnip Cup.
I know you love food themed levels, Sky High Sundae is pretty great and a full anti-grav course. I know people were disappointed there were no anti-grav sections in the last pack.

I sure hope they have more anti-grav from the third wave, also in the retro tracks. It IS kinda MK8's thing after all.

Still great value this booster pack though. Having great fun =)
