Raising Your Score at Bowser's Castle 2T

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 (Bowser
Starting with a Rocket Start will give you the advantage to take an early lead in the race. You can also get the highest bonus score possible if done correctly.

Ramps, Road Humps, and Platforms

Ramps (Bowser
Ramps, road humps, and platforms are all over the course. These ramps are close to each other enough for you to create a long combo. Make sure to go over each of these ramps, road humps, or platforms to maximize your score.


Drifting (Bowser
Do Mini-Turbo boosts along with curved areas. Mini-Turbos will give you the needed speed which will help you get ahead of your opponents. You will also gain points by doing Mini-Turbos.

Combo Area

Combo Area (Bowser
Make sure you have started a combo before arriving in this area to further maximize your combo streak. You can either use the gliding area on the right or go straight on the dash panel to continue the combo you are making. Do not forget to take the platform on the right for a shortcut.

Dash Panels

Dash Panel (Bowser
There are dash panels all over the course. We recommend using a High-End Kart that has a Dash Panel Plus skill to further increase your score. Make sure to over these dash panels as it will also give you a short boost.


Barrel Bombs (BowserBarrel Bombs Thwomp (BowserThwomp

Be careful! There are Barrel Bombs and Thwomps in this course. You will slow down and crash once you hit or bump into one of these obstacles.

Using of Items

Hit! (Bowser
Do not forget that you can throw your items forward or backward to your opponents. Hitting an opponent will also give you certain points and can also give you the chance to get ahead of them. Just remember to save at least one item at your back (like bananas or green shells) to block your opponents' attack from behind.
