Raising Your Score at Yoshi Circuit R

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 (Yoshi Circuit R).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.

Shortcut 1

Shortcut Gliding Area (Yoshi Circuit R).jpg
The shortcut in this course is hard to access. It is required to use mushroom so that you will not slow down when you hit the wooden cutouts that are blocking the way.


Piranha Plant (Yoshi Circuit R.jpg
When gliding through the course, be careful not to get close to a piranha plant or it will hit you. You'll slow down once hit by them.

Mini-Turbo Boosts

It is possible to do an ultra mini-turbo boost in this course for it has long curves and wide race track. Using ultra mini-turbo boosts will give you a higher score compared to mini and super mini-turbo boosts.

Dash Panels

There are dash panels inside the tunnel, which is a long curve that gives a better chance for you to do an ultra mini-turbo boost. Dash panels will also give you a score each time you pass through them.

Shortcut 2

We do not recommend taking the shortcut if you do not have a mushroom so always save one if you want to access it without a problem. You will fall off the course if you access the shortcut without using a mushroom.

      Personally, I think if I try reeeaaaalllllly hard I can get it, it would be a great celebration for a player that hasn’t spent any money at all in the game. Only 40,000-41,000 points left
      (Yes it’s me, Lakitu. Once this tour has ended I will change my name to normal again).
