Raising Your Score at 3DS Rainbow Road T

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. 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.

T Course

Ramps Dash Panels and Platforms.jpg

There will be a lot of ramps, dash panels, and platforms in this course. It is possible to start a combo at the very beginning of the race up to the end. Practice this course until you master it to obtain the highest possible score.

Drifting

Ultra Mini-Turbo Boosts (3DS Rainbow Road T).jpg

Drifting can be very helpful in this course. There will be a time to use a drift to get to the next ramp, dash panel, or coin to extend the combo. It is also possible to do an ultra mini-turbo boost so be sure to use it for it gives a higher score compared to mini and super mini-turbo boosts.

Gliding Area

Gliding Area (3DS Rainbow Road T).jpg

You can maximize the score you can get in gliding when you use the giant mushrooms to extend your gliding time. We also recommend getting higher combos first before entering the gliding area to get an even higher score.

Giant Mushroom

You can perform a jump boost and/or extend your glide time when you bounce on the giant mushrooms. Be sure to use them to extend your combo and add points to your score!

Rainbow Panels

      The Macharons were confirmed in the Twitter photo, but the Crepes were simply a guess based on previous tours with Paris tracks.
      .
      I'm a bit surprised they chose Paris again, this will be the 5th tour running a P.Promenade track, most recently in Cat Tour back in Jan/Feb. 4th time this year to be running city tracks.
