Wink MIB tips for left and right hand lanes

Hope no one minds but there have been numerous requests on the pm and on the boards for tips. This will not be the difinitive final word on how to max-out on the points since i think only the designer knows that.
Since i hit the 999,999 4 out of every 15 times i ride i will share all that i know and have learned. (I can see the free Mythos meals by hustling people going down the drain.)

First i divide the game into five areas with scoring ranges for each.
AREA 1) THE TRAINING AREA: 40,000 TO 61,000
AREA 2) THE CRASH SITE AND TOWN AREA: 214,000 TO 342,000
AREA 3) THE AMBUSH: 414,000 TO 614,000
AREA 4) THE RUN FOR THE BUG: 800,000 TO 999,999
AREA 5) EATEN BY THE BUG: 999,999 TO 1,137,000

Basic guidelines:
1) always hold the trigger on the gun. even if you aim at the ceiling every ten NOISES that the gun makes is worth 1,050 points. SO NEVER LET GO OF THE TRIGGER.

2) With very few exceptions that i will note in the upcoming threads AIM FOR THE EYES or BETWEEN THE EYES. the do-right and dufus tape shows you can shoot the shoulder or neck area. You can if you want to stay the low score in the car.

3) free tip: the best cars to max out on the score are LEFT SIDE ROWS ONE AND TWO and RIGHT SIDE ROWS THREE AND FOUR. Now before you all try to get in only those cars, i have hit the 999,999 from all four cars in both front and back rows. i just find it easier to hit the 1,137,000 from these two cars.

I will stop here for now and see there are any objections to this plan by the moderators, or any specific questions. I will if allowed post a new thread every week or so. dealing with the stratagy for right and left car in each area.

well MsDisney you asked for it
:D

MIB.. We haven't set a date for our next trip but DS would love for you to give him the pointers in person if you will be in the parks when we go. He couldn't believe that you get the high score often.

Thanks MIB!!! Yes, I DID ask for it!!! I'm going to get the printer going tomorrow so I can have this stuff (and Barry's tips) in a handy folder. They're going to think I'm very odd studying outside of MIB! LOL

Why would they have a problem with tips for getting a great score? I mean, having some clue is one thing...actually being ABLE to memorize and follow through is another thing altogether, so it's not like suddenly the game will be ruined by the info!

Well, anyway...I'm glad to see this thread!!! And I'm thinking there should be an onsite class the weekend of the 10th/11th too! :D I would imagine the weekends are busy, do you do the single riders line? It was funny seeing mention of do-right and dufus, we've only been through the regular line once...over a year ago! You might say we're spoiled!

Thanks!!! And I look forward to more!!!

Awesome tips!

Aw man! I wish I had all these kick butt tips when I was there on the 28th for HHN! We got to ride two times in quick succession and a third ride before we headed home! I at least tromped the boyfriend by 150k 2 out of three times. Heh!

So, pardon my ignorance, but am I guessing here that you get a free dinner at Mythos if you score 999,999?

I am so with MsDisney, I'm gonna be printing out these tips and memorizing them for our next trip in Feb....

I thnk the free dinner comes for the many challanges that MIB gets from some locals.


Tips would be nice....I leave for US/IOA in a a few weeks....that ride is such a sensory overload that it's almost impossilbe to score high the first few times you ride it.

question for all of you: do we put it all on this thread????

sha-lyn: I will be eating my thru epcot 11/3 and ducking while the hurricane comes thru 11/4. I will be there 11/11 and then probably each saturday thereafter except for 12/8. just let me know and if i can be there i will.

MsDisney: i will be there 11/11 so bring it on, school will be in session!!! Yes i almost always ride single rider unless there is a meet and we all decide to ride in the same car.

BansheeBlue: EUROPA is correct. i was dreaming of hustling tourons for free dinners at Mythos. If you hit the 999,999 on MIB all you get is the option to purchase the photo which occured in the ambush area in case you were wondering where it is taken

EUROPA: you are correct about the sensory overload; first time riders that get more than 250,000 are doing very well but the fun of the ride is watching it all unfold. I can go thru and not fire a shot and just watch all the animatronics and scenery and be very content with the ride.

This thread will be all about the score however, Because if it was just for fun then why do they keep score!!!!

MIB - No matter to me where you post...whatever is easiest!
I was sort of planning on going on Sat. the 10th since Sunday I have a standing football thing going on. (no, I don't play, but I like to watch...the game, that is) Hmmm...

Well, it sounds like either way, I'll be able to get some first hand tips from the MIB master, at some point in the near future!

I, for one, want to say that I really appreciate the time you are giving to this cause...and I agree about enjoying the ride either way, but the competitive nature in me doesn't allow me to do any less than try to kick some serious alien butt!!! :D

*sheepish grin*

ok, so no free dinner at Mythos. THAT would be nice though huh?

And yeah I was wondering where/when exactly the pic was taken. I cracked up when we looked at our pics all three times last Sunday, my boyfriend and I looked so damned serious in them, probably because we were intent on kicking each other's *****.... heh!

Drool, drool, now I wanna go back again just to do MIB...at least we have Annual Passes in case we wanna be crazy and go for a weekend

Ok, i will start this instruction manual 11/4 on this thread.
I plan to take the game AREA 1 thru AREA 5.
I will detail AREA 1 for right and left track starting then. Now these will be detailed so the post will be long each time.

BansheeBlue: The picture is taken right before the aliens come to life in the ambush area. TIP: the big alien dead ahead of you is not worth squat point wise. I assume you will read this thread and not let your boyfriend see it till long after you have trounced him soundly!!!!

MsDisney: that standing football thing sounds intriguing:D

you do all realize that the whole point of this is the high score controls the flashy thing

this thread is way old i think, but if you still come and check it out, are you saying that there is an ending where you aren't neuralized????? the best my family's gotten is the ending where the alien is making us a suit that will be ready next wednesday, but we are still neuralized. i read in some guidebook about a hero's welcome in times square. care to explain???

Proud to admit that my family takes up a whole MIB car!!!!!

You still get flashed at the end but Will Smith says different things depending on your score. There is no hero's welcome in time square.

The times square thing is one i have not heard about and if that was the prize i would have stopped playing the game a long time ago.

You always get neuralized unless there is a mal-function. After all the pre-show is a theme park ride and you are neuralized so you are right back to believeing you were on a theme park ride that you can remember nothing about.

Trying to improve

just got back from a couple of days trying to improve my MIB score,this is the first trip I really spent many hours looking at the whole ride and using everything I've read here.
First off I would like to thank MIB4ME for riding wth me and pointing out things I was not sure about.
Iimproved my score in one day from a average of about 225,000 to about 750,000 when I left but it seems I reached a leveling off at that point.My high for the training section is only 55,000 a average of about 20,000 any way I might improve?
At the point of the drop down bugs am I better off trying for the blue box or the posters on the wall or trying to hit both?I have been just doing posters for around 300,00 points.
Again thanks MiB4ME and your wife for letting me pick your brain,hope to hear from some of you,don't know when I'll be abole toget backtoride buti know i'll be looking toimprove again!l
