Mario Kart 64 Cheats For Nintendo 64

  1. Mario 64 Castle

    Follow the yellow road in Royal Raceway, just after the big jump and to the right. That road will take you to the Mario 64 castle.

  2. Shortcuts on Koopa Troopa Beach

    #1 - The first shortcut is the sand bar on the right side on the archway. Just go over it and it's a shortcut (and an easy one at that)

    #2 - Jump from the top of the ramp just after the archway, you need to have enough speed or you might not make it. A mushroom, star, or a last second power slide helps

  3. Shortcut on Kalimari Desert

    On the first or second lap if you get a star you can do this. When you get to the 2nd Railroad tracks turn and go to the tunnel. Just before you enter the tunnel use your star, if you do this right you'll finish the lap and have a shorter 2nd or 3rd lap.

  4. Shortcuts on Wario Stadium

    #1 - When you first start the race, you can jump the wall at the top of the hills, you can shave almost half your time by doing this.

    #2 - After the first shortcut you can jump back over the wall and land before the finish line, this is very hard to do. I myself have only done this 2 or 3 times, so don't say it is not posible, it is.

  5. Shortcuts on Royal Raceway

    #1 - You can take a big shortcut if you jump across the river just after the first big turn. You need a mushroom or a star to do this (it is much harder if you use a star). Aim for the dark spot on the wall, if you do this right you can get towed up onto the big ramp.

    #2 - In 150 cc you can jump to the left at the top of the big ramp and land on a bit of dirt near the finish line. If you do this right you will get towed to the finish line. This is very hard.

  6. Shortcut on Yoshi Valley

    Just after all the roads come to a point, you can jump to a lower track. Once you get the hang of it, it becomes very easy.

  7. Shortcut on Rainbow Road

    If you use a mushroom you can jump from the big hill just after start to a later part of the track on the left (right in mirror mode). This is very hard to do.

  10. Don't slip!

    If you slip on a banana, and are about to spin out, hit the brakes. You will stop (not spin out), a music note inside a balloon will appear next to your driver, and you will have saved yourself a lot of time.

  11. Booster

    To get a boost at the start of the race and an early lead, do not hold the acceleration button before the race. Wait until after the last light flashes, then punch the gas. If you time it just right, you should get a boost that puts you into first place!

  12. Hidden Ending

    To get a hidden ending in Mario Kart 64, place 4th place overall. This is a lot harder than it sounds because if you place 5th or lower in any one race, you must restart. The easiest way to place 4th overall is just to get 4th place in every race.
