Raising Your Score at Waluigi Pinball

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 strategically to knock your opponents out of the lead.

Tips for Raising Your Score

Rocket Start

Rocket Start (Waluigi Pinball).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.

Gliding Area

Gliding Area (Waluigi Pinball).jpg
At the start of the race, you will access the gilding area of the course. Extend the combo you can make when gliding by drifting and passing through the dash panels.

First Item Box

First Set of Item Boxes (Waluigi Pinball).jpg
We suggest getting the first set of item boxes instead of accessing the dash panels. Although both routes give scores and can help you steal or extend your lead, we prefer getting the items instead for they can be saved and be used at the right moment to finish first in the race.


Ultra mini-turbo boosts (Waluigi Pinball).jpg
You can maximize the use of ultra mini-turbo boosts in this course for it has long curves and open areas. Using ultra mini-turbo instead of mini and super mini-turbo boosts will add more to your score.

Combo Area

Combo Area (Waluigi Pinball).jpg
The start of the combo area is after the series of long curves (after green color race track). You can do a combo of 13 and above so be sure to time your drifts correctly and get coins to extend the combo even further.


Obstacles (Waluigi Pinball).jpg
Avoid these obstacles to get a better position in the race.
