Banzai Run Rules

How to Play Banzai Run

No items found.
  • Don’t forget to appreciate the soundtrack.
  • The hill is opened by challenging riders. You can challenge a rider by clearing their bank of targets/set of lanes, and you can also spot lanes/targets by either shooting the center Spot saucer or by shooting the right ramp (before the first multiball).
  • Familiarize yourself with the hill and its weird physics. Navigating it well is crucial for any high-scoring strategy you may be interested in.
  • The big points up top are awarded in the form of Cliff Jumps. Completing A-B-C or hitting the Captive Ball up top will double the value of the cliff jump, which increases each time you score it.
  • The hill closes if you beat all of the riders you’ve challenged. Since you want to keep scoring Cliff Jumps, keep the hill open by deliberately not beating riders.
  • Exception: if you can beat all remaining riders, go for it. Beating all four riders lights multiball, which has a simple sequence:
  • Start multiball by locking a ball on the hill
  • During multiball, lock one ball in the Spot saucer
  • Collect the jackpot at the hill’s captive ball
  • Shoot the ramp repeatedly for Victory Laps
