Raising Your Score at Ghost Valley 1R/T

Position Points and Gimmicks are the Most Important.

Tips for Raising Your Score

Rocket Start

Always start with a Rocket Start. You can get the highest bonus score possible if done correctly. It will also help you take an early lead in the race.


Ramps (Ghost Valley 1R/T).png
Ramps and platforms are all over the course. Go over these ramps to perform jump boost and create a long combo to increase your score.

Dash Panel

Choose to go over the platform to access dash panels. These would give you a short boost than accessing the ramps on the other side.

Gliding Area

A gliding area will be located at the end of the 2nd set of platforms. Gliding will increase your combo count. This is also a faster way to get into the finish line.

Piranha Plant

Watch out for the piranha plant on the right side while gliding. The piranha plant will try to eat you which will cause you to crash and fall down.


Shortcut (Ghost Valley 1R/T).png
This shortcut is located by turning right at the start of the race. Access this shortcut only on the 2nd lap if you have an item to break the wooden cutout. Bumping the wooden cutout will cause you to crash and you might get left behind from other racers.

    • if anyone is interested, i found that the RMX Rainbow Road 2T , in the Hammer Bro Cup is the place to get the nonstop combo for expert challenges. if you play thru, collect your items but dont concentrate on offense, concentrate on defense, just run the course and hit every jump you can and do every turbo boost you can.... no need to use your items. just run right thru the course.
