Mario Kart: Double Dash!! Hints
GameCube | Submitted by mariokarkddmasterAvoiding a Blue Shell
There are several ways to avoid a blue shell:
You can lose it by going in a cannon, like the one in Rainbow Road or in DK Mountain.
You can use a mushroom or star or golden mushroom or chainchop to lose the blue shell.
You can lose it by drafting. When the lights are blue and blue is about to hit you, let go of the draft and the blue shell will miss (it must be timed perfectly or it will not work).

1. At the start turn left down a little walkway and through a pipe.
2. You need a mushroom for this. The second one is just outside the first tunnle.go strait to the sand that looks like a parth. use the mushroom to speed across the sand and on to the bricks and jump off on to the road.
3. The third one is just to get away from the traffic. When you come out the first of the tunnle take a sharp turn left.
4. The fourth one is on the bridges arched rails on the side of the bridge there is lot speedpads.
When you start follow the track when you get to the first set of stairs take a hard right to go around right side of the pool.
You will need a mushroom for this. Follow the track until you reach the arched bridge behind the start line instead of turning left go strait to the thin part of the bridge on the right side of the hole. Use the mushroom get across the part that slows you down and strait across the finish line.
1. You need a mushroom for this. When you start follow the road for about 5 seconds turn right and use the mushroom to zoom across the grass and over the water pit and on to the road again. This shaves off about 8 seconds.
2. You need a mushroom for this. When you come out of the tunnel follow the road until you see the fence on the left finishes go strait up the grass rampand use your mushroom turn right a little and fly into the cave. If you don't make it you will see the cave. If you do make it you will shave off 10 seconds.

Flower Cup- the cruise ship
Inside the Daisy Cruiser, there is a secret passage you are probably aware of: you fall down a hole, drive forward, and get blasted out of a tube. But isn't it weird that the other racers never use secret passages? If you bump one of the other racers into the hole, they will get confused because of being in an unfamiliar place. They will drive around in circles for a long time. After a long while, they will figure out to get shot out of the tube and race to the finish line-just in time to come in last place, unless you finish before every other racer! This cheat is most effectively used on the really good racers that always come in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place. Use it wisely.

You will need a star, three mushrooms, or a chain chomp for this. After you go through the tunnel, there will be a place with no gate on the side. Jump at the end and there will be a tunnel, and use the item before you jump. It will take you up about five places.

Before you get to the part with the rocks trying to kill you for the third time and falling into the big crack, use a mushroom then make a 90 degree left turn (right in mirror mode). This would only work in 150cc, mirror, or maybe 100cc.

Before the race starts, wait until the light turns green, and just before the words "Go" appear on the screen, hit A and you'll start the race much faster and get a big boost, and a big starting lead on all other opponents
