After you go down the big stairs with all the fruit boxes, you turn right, you will see a small ramp leading up to more turn that go up. If you jump on the ramp while using turbos with the L and R buttons, and try to head left as you jump, you may be able to get to another path.
jump off the wooden ramp in to the water. The hangtime turbo should be enough to get you up to the ledge which is right in front of you although i prefer to land in a powerslide and get a quick boost in before jumping.
Note:this trick is very difficut to do and has around a 75% chance of hitting somebody if done correctly.First,get some missiles(3 pack or 1 missile),then press R2+Down to look back & fire at the same time.You must make sure somebody behind you is visible in order to hit them.In Arcade mode,if the difficulty is set to hard,the CPU racers use will this technique on you.
When you are at the place of 2nd or 3rd follow the opponent which comes first than you go behind him and press circle to leave you TNT, Nitro or Potions. (do you know that some of them drive the same way?) Thats way this work because of that. Then the opponent behind you will bump to the TNT or potion because the opponent in front of you have the same path to pass with the one behind you. This always work for me.( Follow only one character so that the one which has the path to pass the same with the opponent will always be the one to be hit, he will always be in the last place.
This is a cheat that many people know, and I found a good way to use it. You can jump of a ramp and place a TNT/Nitro in midair, right? Well, during multiplayer, select 5 laps, and during you first 4 laps, put TNT/Nitros across a ramp that you have to go on, like in Mystery Caves. Then, your friend will hopefully hit it!
First get some missiles, then hold onto R2 and down and press circle to shoot it. Make sure some one behind you is there! For practice, get unlimited missiles (bombs) by doing the cheat: at menu hold L1+R1 and press triangle, right, down, right, up, triangle and left. Then in race run into a red beaker (potion) and keep getting boxes untill you get a pack of three missiles. Note: if you get a pack of bombs again, then just run into another one! And it will be unlimited. Then you can practise by going backwards in a lap to have more time to practise! Any problems? Email me email@example.com,if you have the unlimited potions cheat, pleeeeeeze send it to me.Bye
As you start, you will see a divide in the track up ahead. You will have time (assuming you are a competent power-slider) to get two or three boosts in. As you come to the divide, take the left side ans it is on the inner side of the track. As you go round the corner, you will have time to get a set of three boosts before coming to the ramp. Jump off the end of this ramp and land in the water after it. You could probably make the ledge wit the boost you get from this jump, but I tend to land in a power-slide and get a quick boost in before jumping to the ledge. Once you are on the ledge, power-slide as many times as you can, staying as left as you can. You will want to jump down on the LEFT hand side of the red arrow. On the bridge, you can pull a set of three power-slides and in the process, manouvre the kart round to face the left in time to jump down to the left through the second small wooden triangle. This will give you a small boost when you land, giving you momentum to go round the final corner. You will be able to do at least two sets of three going round. Take the pads whilst sliding and boosting to the finish line.
Assuming you are a competent power-slider, you should be aiming to get a lap time of about 29:00 to 30:00. My best time for what it's worth is 28:35. Good luck! (and drive fast!)
As soon as you reach the tunnel, wait until you get to the ramp with the turbo pad in front of it. DON'T go on the ramp, take a left over the barrier onto the area where you go when you re-enter the ship with the 4-8 ft. jumping turbo ramp. Hope you figure this out. If you can't, e-mail me @ firstname.lastname@example.org. Good Luck!
To do this when u jump over a ramp and land doing a turbo boost it\'ll be faster and pura is the best charecter to use HINT: use it for going very fast for beating ghosts be sure to do very fast to keep your speed and ZOOM!
As you near the end of the track, there is a final jump, leading to the track with bones either side. Instead of returning to the track, jump left onto the mud. For this shortcut to be effective, you must be able to boost in a powerslide. Mind the mushrooms!
Im sure everyone knows about this, but i will write my way of getting up to that hole. I come out of the red tunnel, do 2 boosts, and jump over the hip on the left hand side of the track. This gives me enough speed to jump straight at the hole and clear it with some distance to spare. Instead of going all the way round, jump off the bridge, it will save you time.
On the snow level, when you get near the end of the track, you should see a brown gate between 2 big rocks. You can jump over the gate only by using a Aku Aku/Uka Uka or a turbo boost. This can save you about 3-4 seconds on the course. This Shortcut would be good on a relic challenge with unlimited Aku Aku/Uka Uka masks. I will come back with more shortcuts later. Bye!
This will whip everyone on this track even nirtous ghost.After you have completed the sharp turns and gone past the car eating plants continue down the three steps as you head up the hill you go over a bump put your brakes on and do a 180 degree turn you are now facing the wrong way head towards the wall on your left as you go off the bump jump onto the wall dive along the wall you will see the start finish line jump left make sure you donot go past the line while on the wall or the lap will not count
Along the track you will see a red fence at some point with a piece of track on the other side and a downward slope infront of you. At the bottom of the slope, turn around and zoom back up the ramp. Jump at the top and try to clear the fence (you may need a turbo). If you do this, you should save yourself a LOT of time.
Many people know this one I'm sure, but about half of the way through Tiger Temple, there will be a secret door that looks like a face. Throw poison bottles, missils, bombs, bubbles or use aku akus or uga ugas. This puts you far ahead.
In the options menu there is an option for the music. Go on this and you will listen aku aku's music. To listen uka uka's music you must to get a mask and go again to options. Go to music option and you will listen uka uka's music!
WARNING: You must have a good character for do this tip.
Tiger Temple Shortcut: After you drive through FIRST room when statues blow fire at you, you will come to a hilltop. Look left. There's sort of face on a wall is there. There are four lines engraved in a blue wall under it. You must have a rocket, cannon ball,a potion (must be thrown forward), a mask or either one of the bubbles and hit the teeth with them. You'll go through a passage with fruit boxes and if you're in adventure mode and doing the CTR challenge you can get the "R"!!
Blizzard Bluff Shortcut: When you get to the FIRST area where you slide on ice, look to your left. There will be a sort of ice slope. You MUST have a ten fruited mask to go over it or you'll be too slow. You'll cut in front of the hut that is near the home strait!
Dragon Mines Shortcut: When you get to the area where the carts drive across for the first time,turn right on the rail. You must have a ten fruited mask so you'll be faster and if you get run over you won't be affected.Then you come out on the home strait!
Papu's Pyramid SUPER Shortcuts: After you get up those annoying steps, you'll get to the place where those purple plants are. Pass them and look left. There will be a platform on it's own. Either get a good run up, or have a mask (RECOMMENDED. But still need a run up) and jump onto it. Another is when you turn the bend after the kart eaters and go on the boost pad and go left and jump on the platform that goes over the other set of plant eaters! Do both of these and you'll breeze your way in front!
Sewer Speedway shortcut: When you actually get into the sewer area where the blue stuff is under you, look right. You'll see an opening in the wall. Go on the opposite edge and use a mask and go down and up again onto the other side. If you have a big enough jump, you'll enter! (Note:When you enter the sewer area where the blue stuff is under your cart, and see the first boxes,and are right behind a racer take the box on the right because the computer always takes the left one!)
Polar Pass Shortcut: After you go over the thin bridge after those pesky platforms you enter the area with two seals (which usually squash you if you have no protection). Look straight ahead and you'll see a short wall. Get a good run up and leap over to: 1: get goodies such as weapon boxes; 2: land on a booster pad straight after the huge jump to zoom ahead!!
Cortex Castle Shortcut: When you enter the room with the huge boost to take you into last room, look left straight away. There will be a slope. Wait until next lap so you know it's there. Then take a leap onto it. There we go!!
Slide Coliseum Free Boost and mini shortcut: After a few bends there will be a thin strip of grass on the road. Drive Straight over it and you'll save a bend and earn a boost! (If not sure of which part, choose Polar and finish the race. He'll go into auto drive. leave your pad and watch until you see Polar do a sharp bend. That's the one!!)
O.K. When You have USF (Ultamate Saffi Fire) Take As Many Shortcuts As You Can And Also Go On As Many Warp Pads And ultra Warp pads Also Make Sure Hit The Ground VERY Hard After Doing That You Should Have GUSF The Colour Of Your Exhaust Is A VERY Dark Red
After the red tubes as you approach the first part of the sewer go straight and you will see a wall above the jump you can use a mask or turbo to get in their but sometimes you don't. Any problems email email@example.com
The first shortcut comes straight after the start line, between the two rocks, cutting out the first corner. There is a small incline on the near side of the opening which you can use to gain a hangtime turbo to keep your momentum. The second shortcut comes on the left of the first ice patch. Ideally, you want to perfom 2 powerslide boosts before the jump, the second one being just before you jump. you should find yourself just past the tunnel. as you progress down the following straight, you will want to build up some serious momentum then turn sharply left up the snow bank. you should see a gap between the two rock, protected by a barrier. If you time your jump correctly, you will be able to clear the barrier.
When I used the infinite mask cheat on one of the snowy levels i dont know which 1. When I had a mask I jumped of the huge ice jump near the end of the lap, when i landed the mask didnt have the multi coulered trails of lines coming out of it and when I hit a seal it made me spin.
Enable the "Unlimited bomb"code in an arcade race.Hit one of the enemy's red poisons, This will take away the bombs.Later,if you get a triple missile pick-up, it will be unlimited. Note:This will not work in some levels because you cannot get the triple missile power-up.
