 Find all the shortcuts to save time on your opponents for the Flying Garden race in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, one of the game's new circuits.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has just added eight new races with the release of Wave 1 of the additional circuits pass this Friday, March 18.

Among these new races, we find Jardin Volant from Mario Kart GBA. In order to save time on your opponents, we are going to give you shortcuts (or short-cuts) available for this race.

What are the Flying Garden shortcuts in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe?

For the Flying Garden race, there are three shortcuts. The first is the leaf that is to your right after you take the first corner of the race. The second is actually a speed booster that involves sliding through the flowers that are on the left turn after taking the trampoline mushroom. As for the last one, it consists of passing under the arch-shaped rod visible to your left before the bend leading to the straight line before the finish. To learn more about these short-cuts, you can check out the following \video by AbdallahSmash026 .

Finally, we remind you that the Jardin Volant race is part of the Maneki-neko Cup  which was added to the game with the release of wave 1 of the additional circuits on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe this Friday, March 18 on Nintendo Switch.
