To earn Glide Time points while racing you need to be wary of Blue Dash Plates. These plates can give you a boost to open your Glider. When you pass through these Blue Dash Plates you will be able to fly and earn those Glide Time Points.

Techniques for Extending Glide Time

Steer Clear of Obstacles!

Gliding in the air is the same as racing in the ground. There are obstacles that can disrupt your Gliding Time so move left and right and be mindful of obstacles in the way!

Use the Air Boosts!

These contraptions can really extend your Gliding Time. They will give you more time up in the air and therefore more Glide Time points! Glide over them whenever you see them.

Gliding Control

Going Up!

Swipe down the screen while gliding to get the kart go up for a bit. This will help you extend your gliding and reach higher place.

Landing Immediately

Go down quickly by swiping the screen upwards. If you want to reach a ramp to perform a Jump Boosts and extend you gliding, going down fast is the best course of action!

Additional Tips About Glide Time

Do not use Speed Boosts

Using Speed Boosts such as Mushrooms will only speed up your gliding, so do not use them when flying in the sky.

Disrupt Other Racers' Glide Time

If you want to be malicious to your opponents, you can disrupt their gliding time by using throwable items at them. In particular, the red shell is effective since you can home in enemies in the air!
