Spilled Oil (Mario Circuit 3R).jpg
There are two obstacles in this course that can slow you down: pipes and spilled oils. Although the pipes are not much of a threat, spilled oils can still slow you down. Obstacles does not matter if you are in the Frenzy mode, for you will be invulnerable to anything.

Mini-Turbo Boosts

      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).
