Raising Your Score at Choco Island 1R

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 (Choco Island 1R).jpg
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.


Mini-Turbo (Choco Island 1R).jpg
Performing Mini-Turbos will give you the needed speed and extend your combo as well. Drift along curved areas to take advantage of your opponents and increase your score.

1st Shortcut

1st Shortcut (Choco Island 1R).jpg
Access this shortcut only on the 2nd lap and if you have a Mushroom item to help you speed up. Otherwise, it will only slow you down.

Road Humps

Road Humps and Coins (Choco Island 1R).jpg
The road humps are all over the course. Make sure to take that opportunity to do Jump Boosts and trigger a combo. Don't forget to pick up the Coins as these will also add to the combo you are making. You can also use these coins to buy driver, karts, gliders, and other things in the Shop.


Obstacles (Choco Island 1R).jpg
Be careful as there are Piranha Plants in this course. Avoid them or your kart will crash, causing you to slow down. You can also take out these Piranha Plants by hitting them with any item (except coins and bananas) and grant you points.

2nd Shortcut

2nd Shortcut (Choco Island 1R).jpg
We do not recommend using this shortcut as you will miss the humps on the road. Access this shortcut only if you are not in the lead and if you have a Mushroom with you.

Using Items

Item (Choco Island 1R).jpg
Make sure to hit your opponents when throwing your items forward or backward. Hitting an opponent will grant you points and slow them down at the same time. This will give you the advantage to get ahead of them and take the lead. Do not forget to save at least one item to defend yourself from getting hit.

      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).
