Raising Your Score at Mario Circuit 3T

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 (Mario Circuit 3T).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.

Platforms and Ramps

Platforms (Mario Circuit 3T).jpg
There are tons of platforms and ramps in this course. Use them to get more points. Do not drift or use a mushroom once you access the platforms (especially the curved ones), or you will fall off the edge and will not be able to pass through all the ramps.

Mini-Turbo Boosts

T courses (like this course) are basically combo area courses. Use mini-turbo boosts before your combo breaks to get a higher score.

Dash Panel
