Score 7,000+ Using A Driver With A Hat

Using a driver with a hat’s favored course is basically required here, as there’s not much chance of getting all the way to 7,000 if you can’t pull 3 items at a time or have the opportunity to frenzy.

Of course, having the favored gliders and karts helps, too, since you’ll get a starting point bonus.

If you got super lucky and pulled Halloween Rosalina from the pipe, then Choco Island 2 is one of the easiest places to complete this challenge.

It’s much more likely you are going to need to do this with Baby Mario or Baby Luigi however, and it may take a few tries in their favored courses to get all the way to 7,000.

It is incredibly simple to finish this challenge with Baby Luigi in Daisy Hills T due to the constant jump boosts with coins giving you quick action combos.

Luigi’s Mansion R is one of the more difficult maps to utilize here due to the layout. Unless you hit every single coin and manage to avoid all the scuttling trees, its not easy to get an extremely high point total there.
