MARIO KART DS: SHORTCUTS
Wario Stadium
: This is one of the longest tracks in the game, but it has a super shortcut that can cut a lot of time off your lap. It is possible to jump over the wall to the left of the starting line by using any one of the four small jumps there. Although you can make it over the wall without the assistance of any speed boosting item, a Mushroom or Mini-Turbo assist is helpful. Approach the wall at high speed so that you are driving directly at it as you reach the peak of the small hill. Jump just before you hit the wall and you will sail over. The timing requires some practice, but once you master it, it is not too difficult. It is also possible to jump back over the wall on the other side of the starting line, but the return jump is much more difficult and requires precise jump timing and aim.
Yoshi's Valleys: This course is a tangle, as shown in the introductory map. However, there are a few shortcuts that will allow you to defeat just about anybody. Follow the course until you hit the maze part. Immediately go left and remain to the left. The first part of the shortcut is to stay left and on the narrow part of the course. After managing to do that, you will hit a little checkered ledge, and see a big red and white sign on the left pointing to the right. This is the difficult part. Accelerate as fast as possible and stay to the far right. As soon as the rail on the left side ends, pull a hard left powerslide off the road. You will continue the powerslide onto the upcoming road after you land, and done correctly, you will have shaved off at least ten seconds or lead the pack. This requires a lot of practice.
