Raising Your Score at Neo Bowser City R/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

Rocket Start (Neo Bowser City RT).jpg
Always start with a Rocket Start. If done correctly, you can get the highest bonus score possible. It will also help you take an early lead in the race.


Due to the rain in this course, there are puddles in some area. Be careful, for you will slip when you drive through them.


Ramps (Neo Bowser City RT).jpg
Ramps and platforms are all over the course. So you can easily perform a long combo streak and increase your score!


Drifting (Neo Bowser City RT).png
You can perform Mini-Turbo Boosts as there are a lot of curve areas in this course. Mini-Turbos will help you increase your speed and at the same time gain points from it.

Dash Panel

Go to the side of the road with dash panels to help you boost and increase your speed, giving you the chance to take the lead in the race while also getting more points from combos.


You will see an air current on the opposite side of the dash panels area as mentioned above. Access this shortcut only if you are not in the lead to catch up with your opponents. Going through dash panels would be better as it will increase your combo count!

Traffic Cones

      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).
