Tour Challenges 2

  • Do 20 Jump Boosts: Can be performed over numerous races. If you want it done quick, complete the Do Jump Boosts challenge in the Bowser Jr. Cup.

  • Get 1st place in a race 3 times in a row: Play on 50cc to give yourself the best chance of winning three races in a row without trouble. We recommend a shorter track too, to save time.
  • Get 1st place without crashing: This is going to be a challenge. We reckon you’re best off playing on 50cc and holding onto any defensive items for the duration of the race. To this effect, temporarily turn off Auto-item if you’ve been using it.
  • Land 5 hits with Bananas in a single race using a driver with a mustache: This challenge seems to be designed around Waluigi (Bus Driver). If you haven’t got him, play as a driver with a mustache using a Glider with the Banana Plus Special Skill and hope for the best. Drivers with mustaches include:
    • Mario
    • Luigi
    • Wario
    • Waluigi

King Boo (Luigi’s Mansion) or Black Shy Guy are probably the best options, given that you can fire multiple Bob-ombs using a single Bob-omb Cannon Special Skill.

  • Do 5 Ultra Mini-Turbo boosts in a single race: Play on Yoshi Circuit on 50cc and chain Ultra Mini-Turbo boosts until you’ve performed five. This should be a fairly easy challenge to complete. You’ll know you’re about to perform an Ultra Mini-Turbo boost if the sparks turn purple as you drift.
