Raising Your Score at Koopa Troopa Beach 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 (Koopa Troopa Beach R/T).jpg
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, Road Humps, and Platforms

Ramps (Koopa Troopa Beach R/T).jpg
Ramps, road humps, and platforms are all over this course. Make sure to go over these ramps to perform a jump boost. Jump Boost will give you a short boost after landing and will also help you create a long combo.


Mini Turbo-Boost (Koopa Troopa Beach R/T).jpg
Do a Mini-Turbo Boost if you do not have a mushroom. Mini-Turbo Boost will also help you speed up and can extend your combo at the same time.

1st Gliding Area

Gliding Area 1 (Koopa Troopa Beach R/T).jpg
Access the gliding area by turning right on the platform beside the waterfalls. You do not have to worry for there will also be an item box inside before the gliding area.

Extend Glide Time

You can extend your glide time by going over the air current and landing on the ramp. Doing these will help you maximize your combo streak and raise your score.

Dash Panels

Dash Panels (Koopa Troopa Beach R/T).jpg
Access the dash panels by going straight after the waterfalls. There are dash panels on the platforms and a dinosaur after it. Driving through dash panels will give you points. Landing on the dinosaur's back will let you perform a jump boost. Going through this route would be of great help to take advantage of your opponents.

2nd Gliding Area

>>4 I've been using the dash panel. I guess this way is faster than using the gliding area inside the small cave. After doing a jump boost on the dinosaur, the hump will give you another boost which is a great advantage from your enemies.
