Raising Your Score at Airship Fortress

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 (Airship Fortress).jpg
Always start with a Rocket Start! Rocket Start will not just give you a short boost but also helps you take a good position in the race.

Drifting

Mini-Turbo Boosts.jpg
There are easy-to-turn curves in this course. Take advantage of it and perform Mini-Turbo Boosts to increase your score.

Cannon & Bullet Bill

Bullet Bill (Airship Fortress).jpg
Be careful at the start of the race, for there will be a cannon that will fire out multiple Bullet Bill. Getting hit by one will give tremendous disadvantage to you.

Rocky Wrench (1st Lap)

Rocky Wrench (Airship Fortress).jpg
Avoid bumping on a Rocky Wrench in the first lap of the course. They will slow you down if you bump into them, but you can always use items to take them out and earn some points!

Crates

Crates (Airship Fortress).jpg
Breaking one of the crates will either spawn a Banana, a Mushroom, or nothing at all. We recommend using another item to destroy the crates, for it will slow you down if you bump into one of them.

Fires from Above

Fire (Airship Fortress).jpg
Be careful driving inside the ship, right after the area with crates, for fires are coming and moving from above. Watch their movements carefully and drive into safety!

Gliding Area

Gliding Area (Airship Fortress).jpg
There is a gliding area at the end of the ship. It will lead you to a tower with a spiral road. Use that tower to perform Mini-Turbo Boosts and earn higher scores!

Rocky Wrench (2nd Lap)

Rocky Wrench 2(Airship Fortress).jpg
There is a high chance for the Rocky Wrench to peek in the hole with their eyes only on the 2nd lap. You can bump into them and perform Jump Boosts to get more points!
