Raising Your Score at Ghost Valley 1R

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

Always start with a Rocket Start. This will help you take an early lead in the race. If done correctly, it will give you the highest bonus score possible.


Mini Turbo-Boost (Ghost Valley 1R).jpg
Make sure to perform Mini or Super Mini-Turbo Boost to speed up and take the lead. This will also give you more points and can extend your combo.

Gliding Area

We recommend accessing the gliding area for an easy way to make combos and take the lead.

Shortcut 1

Shortcut 1 (Ghost Valley 1R).jpg
After accessing the gliding area. Glide outside the race track for a shortcut. Be careful of the 2 piranha plants. Keep your distance away from them as much as possible to avoid getting crashed.

Shortcut 2

Shortcut 2 (Ghost Valley 1R).jpg
We suggest to access this shortcut only on the 2nd lap and if you have an item to break the wooden cutout. You can use a mushroom or any item (except coins and bananas) to access this shortcut smoothly.

Using of Items

Hit with an Item (Ghost Valley 1R).jpg

      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).
