Mario Kart: Double Dash!! Hints

    Avoiding 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).

    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.

    2. When you get to the bridge part do a hard rightand go across the little bridge with speedpads on them. but its pretty hard to get back on the track.

    Confuse Other Racers

    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.

    Secret Passage

    yoshi circuit

    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.

    DK Mountain Shortcut

    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.
