Mario Kart Wii Guide - Tricks

Tricks are new to Mario Kart Wii, but are key to getting good times.

Basically, when you first lift off the ground for whatever reason, press the trick button to do a special trick, then when you land you get a short boost.

The timing is crucial.

Too Early

Right here, just as you lift

Too Late

If you see blue arrows at the top of a wall, it means you can ride up the wall and do a trick then come back down like a halfpipe. You are guaranteed to land it, so don't worry about that.  The timing also doenst seem as picky when doing halfpipe tricks.
