How to get rainbow road in Mario Cart Wii?

Games Guru: This is an awesome, difficult course. It’s based on Super Mario Galaxy and you might fall into space and totally burn up. There are no real shortcuts. You get Rainbow Road by placing in the top three in Mushroom, Flower and Star cup races. There is a shortcut once you get Rainbow Road. It’s not easy to do, but here it is:

I have a 7000 VR, but battles are completely different. I get 15+ coins, but then I get hit by POWs, shells, Mega-Mushrooms, etc. At the end, I have less than six. And then it “forgets” that I once had 15 coins, and I lose VR. I don’t even know how OTHER people get high ratings. In the manual it says you can choose to play people near your rating, but either I can’t find that setting or 3,000 is “near”. I refuse to believe 5800 is my “true” VR. Help!

Games Guru: Here are some tips. Take note of number 8.
Regarding the rating system, yes, it could be better. Maybe the new Mario Kart will deal with that a bit better.

I have almost all of the characters and karts, but there are a few that I’m stuck on. How do I get Dry Bowser, Baby Daisy, Mii Costume B, and Bowser Jr.

Games Guru:
For Dry Bowser, get a 1 Star rating in all the 150 cc Cups.
For Baby Daisy, get a 1 Star rating in all the 50cc Cups
For Mii Costume B, unlock all 32 Expert Staff Ghost Data in Time Trials Mode.
For Bowser Jr., get a 1 Star rating in all 50cc Retro Cups.

I need help. I printed out how to unlock everything, but I don’t know what an expert staff ghost is! Can you tell me?

Games Guru: Ah, the mysterious Expert Staff Ghosts. These are super-good finish times made by the Nintendo developers for Time Trial Mode. You have to beat the Normal Staff Ghosts by as much as 3 seconds to 10 seconds to unlock them. It won’t be easy. But keep trying. Good luck!

Can you find me some tips for how to win the final racecar? I have won all the others but can’t win the last one no matter what I try. Thank you for your help.

Games Guru: If you’re talking about the last medium kart, you have have to unlock the 24 expert staff ghosts first.

Games Guru, how do we unlock the character Funky Kong in this game?

Games Guru: You need to get the expert staff ghost. And you need to be fast in two to eight seconds, depending on the track length. The second window after you are done with your Time Trial will tell you if you unlocked one. Get four to unlock Funky Kong.

How do you get Mii Outfit B? I have every other person except Mii Outfit B.

Games Guru: You have to unlock the expert ghosts on ALL 32 tracks. Then you’ll get Mii Outfit B. It’s not easy since it takes a lot of time. The expert ghost in Ghost Valley 2 is really hard.

Dear Games Guru, How do you get a star on Mario Kart?

Games Guru: That’s a great question. You have to do at least some of these things:
– You need final score of at least 52.
– Stay ahead of the pack in your laps.
– Don’t use the Bullet Bills very much to get into the lead.
– When you’re in the air after jumping a ramp, do tricks.
– Place first or at least lead for a good part of the race.
– Don’t fall off the tracks.
If you want three stars, you have to get a score of 60. That means perfection, and it’s really hard to do. Getting one star is really good, too!

Any codes?

Games Guru: No codes, but here’s how to unlock the Golden Wheel: Use the Wii Wheel in all modes. After that, go online. You’ll see the Golden Wheel is unlocked – right next to your name.

    • It’s easy to find short cuts because there are short cuts on almost every level.

      There is a shortcut in Wario’s gold mine. when your at the part were the gold carts go away, follow them. it’s a shortcut.

    • there is a small gap in the blocks on near the middle of the track with the colored blocks. On Ghost Valley, there is a small ramp that you can use to jump across the second or third turn.

  13. Is this a good game to get?

  14. i like the game

  16. how do u unlock all the chareters at one time?our can you?

    I think that unlocking Daisy is sort of hard by getting 1st place on the Special Cup. It is also very hard (for me, at least) to get 2nd place on Rainbow Road on 150cc.

  18. I have beat the game but how do you unlock skinless bowser?

  19. To zeman, when I said “part of it” in one of the replys below I meant part of the way to get Bowser Jr.

  20. Note To all people who ask questions on here, Before you asked your question please try to look at other peoples questions…. they might has the same question as you! (=

    how do you get a special title screen(press the A button)? I already have all of the characters, karts and a golden trophy for each course.

    • The special title screen is the one that changes from Peach,Mario,Luigi, and Bowser… other than those there no more.

  22. YES there is a mii outfit c

    for proof search up mii outfit c on bradygames

  23. what is the golden wheel?!

    • The Golden Wii Wheel is a symbol that shows that the person like to use the wii wheel and uses it a bunch. All you have to do to unlock it is get your wii Wheel usage above 50%.

  24. how do you get Daisy?!
