Raising Your Score at Royal Raceway

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

Mini-turbo Boosts (Royal Raceway).jpg
The race track of this course has a lot of curves. Utilize each curve by performing Mini-turbo Boosts. By using Mini-turbo Boosts, you will be able to get ahead against your opponents, and performing one will give you extra points.


Shortcut (Royal Raceway).jpg
Access this shortcut that is located between the starting line and the gliding area. It's best to use this shortcut if you have a mushroom on your item slot or you will slow down.

Gliding Area

Gliding Area (Royal Raceway).jpg

Use Items

Items (Royal Raceway).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.
