Raising Your Score at Dino Dino Jungle T

Generally speaking, position points and gimmicks are the most important.

In order to obtain the most points possible, you should aim for a high position and use items to knock your opponents out of the lead.

Tips for Raising Your Score

Rocket Start

Rocket Start (Dino Dino Jungle T).jpg
Always start with a Rocket Start. You will get the highest bonus score when you perform the Rocket Start correctly. Rocket Start will also give you an early lead in the race.

T Course

Ramps (Dino Dino Jungle T).jpg
Dino Dino Jungle T is a T Course, that increases the numbers of road humps, ramps, platforms, rocks, and water currents, in the race. It is possible to start a combo at the start of the race and end the race without breaking it. Extend the combo to its limit to reach the highest score possible in this course!


Dinosaur Feet (Dino Dino Jungle T).jpg
Go through the middle of the dinosaur's feet to pass through the dash panel to earn a score. Be careful not to be crushed by the dinosaur's feet!

Shortcut 1

Shortcut 1 (Dino Dino Jungle T).jpg
You can take the shortcut by turning right after the mini cave, besides the dinosaur's feet. Get a better position in a race to get more scores!

Shortcut 2

Shortcut 2 (Dino Dino Jungle T).jpg
You can access this shortcut by taking a right turn before the second to 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 this course.

Combo Area

It is easy to perform a long combo inside the cave. Start your combo in the cave and maintain the combo until the end of the race.
