Any%

Safe

Notes

  • You generally want to avoid using any of the overhead tracks as they're are slower unless you're doing the optimal route below which only saves time in certain spots.
  • If you feel you need to, grab the DK barrel right after the halfway.

Optimal

Notes

  • After your first roll of the level, jump, then buffer a roll out of that jump, into the cart. This is faster because buffered rolls have more downwards momentum than normal rolls.
  • You want to skip the DK Barrel after the halfway so you remain solo Dixie up until Low-G Labyrinth.
  • Jumping up slopes will save you time.
  • This route uses some of the overhead tracks to help you gain speed.
