DINO DOMAIN- go to the level called Ancient Lake. When you start, go straight.(do NOT follow the road just hold A.)Then you will eventually see a jump with the key on it!

My Need For Speed!!!

1. {Boosting}
Are you falling behind the CPU's, or worse your friends? Is it because of your boost? Well just let go of "A" just before you go over a zipper and you'll get a "Green Boost!" This boost is slightly better and you'll get to see a lovely festive colouring afterwards!
2. {She slipped on a bannana peel and went for a ride!}
The more bananas you have, the faster you go! There is only a small difference, but once you've mustered enough bananas, you can reach greater speeds than your opponent!
3. {Rocket Power!}
By typing in "rocketpower," you can turn all the balloons in a race blue! The more balloons you collect without using them (Max 3), the better the boost!
4. {Power Slider}
Once you've gone over a zipper, simply press..
