Shortcut 2

Shortcut 2 (Dino Dino Jungle).jpg
You can access this shortcut by taking a right turn before the last set of item boxes. Turn-off smart steering to easily access this shortcut. The combo will be shorter compared to the normal route, so we suggest using this shortcut if you are in 4th place and below in the race to maximize the score you can get in a race.

Combo Area

I saw this shortcut when I first race on this course. I can't access it at before even though I reduced my speed to 50cc. Then later I found out that you need to turn off smart steering in the settings for you to access it lol.
