Raising Your Score at Merry Mountain

Position Points and Gimmicks are the Most Important

Tips for Raising Your Score

Perform Mini-Turbo Boosts to earn a higher score in this course. You can also use it to extend your combo to get an even higher score!

Super Half-Pipe Trick

Super Half-Pipe (Merry Mountain).jpg
Earn extra points by performing a Super Half-Pipe trick by going through the pink panel on the mountain peak. It can also give you a speed boost, which can help you extend your lead or catch up to leading opponents!


Shortcut (Merry Mountain).jpg
You can access a shortcut by going through the rail tracks on the left side, near the starting line. We recommend going through it as it will lessen the distance you travel and you'll get in a better position in the race.

The most I can get so far is 5,000 😑 I don’t have any fancy drivers except for the rose gold peach. Can you show me what the badge is for that one to decide if it’s even worth my time getting? It’s the last one I need.

      theres tons of questions that go along with a reoly to your post Billy, is it a low , medium or high end driver? if its a low end , there is potential that someone saved up enough tickets to max out for a 7. even a medium. when it comes to a high end driver, then i have a little trouble believing they had all the tickets stored up. like Laki said , its possible they got lucky, they may have had the quick tickets to finish all the cups, pulled that gold pipe and got lucky.
