How To Destroy The Balloons
Tips & Tricks
Dash For The First Half
In the first half of the balloon race, the balloons are wide, so it will be easy to break them by dashing. It depends on how well you use your dash to destroy them within the time limit.
The Eighth Balloon Floats
The eight balloon that appears is floating, so you will need to jump using the Y button to reach it. Be sure to jump at the right time to destroy the balloon.
Stop Dashing After The 13th Balloon
The next path will have a sharp curve so it is best to slow down so you can complete the turn. Release the B button to slow down and make a quick turn.
Jump On The 17th Balloon
After making a sharp turn, break the balloons in front of the hill and then jump. You can easily break it if you just dash straight and jump towards it.
Slow Down In The Second Half
After the 20th balloon, there will be a lot of trees in the path. You may have a hard time hitting the balloons if you are dashing. Since you still have ample time from dashing in the first half, try to break them without dashing too much.
Last Balloon Requires Three Jumps
The 26, 28, 30th balloons all require you to jump to break them. The last can only be broken if you jump at the right time, so try to jump when all of the balloons are low.
Be Careful Not To Change Your Camera Too Much
In the balloon race, if you change your camera view at any point, then it's likely you'll lose sight of the balloons. Be careful not to move around your perspective with the right stick.
Obtain A Great Reward For Reaching 30 The First Time
The first time you break 30 balloons, you'll get a Nugget and a Rare Candy which are great for earning money and leveling up.
You Can Obtain Items
Balloon Race can be challenged as many times as you want! If you have an item you want to get, then retry to obtain the item.
