Extra Gold Balloon!

You know about the area with the winter-like level? Well, in that area, right outside the door with the number "2" on it, there's a ramp. When you go up it, there's a balloon inside of an ice cube. Use your stylus to touch the balloon, and try to guide the balloon down the ramp. Once it's down, guide it to the river. Now, go back to the main area, the one with the elephant and the tent. The balloon should be there, and the ice should have thawed!

Faster Speed Boost

When you are about to hit a turbo strip or about to use a blue balloon, let go of the acceleration button. When you hit the boost or use the balloon, you will boost for longer and the boost will be faster.

coins from trees

If touch a tree with the styles you will hear a weird crackling noise, and you may notice that you a can bend the tree by sliding the styles, but what you probably missed if you bothered to stop and read this, is that if you quickly slide the styles back and forth while touching a tree, coins will fall from may fall out of it and you can pick them up before the disappear.

Coins out of the wall!

You know how by the lighthouse there are palm trees with coconuts, right? Well, if you touch the tree with the stylus, and pull it back, then let go, it'll hit the wall and make a crack there. Out comes spilling coin city! Careful, though, you only have a little bit of time to get them!

Location of the 4 keys

You'll be needing 4 Keys in Adventure mode, to fully complete it. Here is where you can find them:

1st: At the start of the Ancient Lake level, there will be a ramp on the right. Collect a blue balloon and boost up the ramp to get the key.

2nd: At Boulder Canyon, go across the drawbridge and hit the blue balloon and the little bell. You should now have a boost. Turn around and wait until the drawbridge is fully raised. Boost up it and you should now be on a ledge with the key.

3rd: Start the Crescent Island level and pass by by the big river on your left. After this river, there will be a little lagoon. The key is in the middle of the lagoon.

4th: After passing through the igloo in Snowball Valley, go as left as you can. Keep moving forward and staying on the left, and you will go in this, tiny area. In the area there will be a tunnel with the key in it.

Out of Bounds in Spaceport Alpha

Use the car. Now, get three blue balloons. Stop in front of the blue, glowing tunnel at the end of the lap. Go as far to the right at the turn, and you will see an edge that looks like it has been cut off. Do the better boost (don't press A) RIGHT IN FRONT of the YELLOW LINE. Turn left as soon as you boost. Now, you should merge with the wall or fall through into space. If you merge, keep turning left and hold A. You'll fall out of bounds and soon reappear in the middle of the tunnel. This works easier with a fast character (T.T. or Taj or Wizpig).
