It's soooo much fun to outshoot the teenage boys...
Yeah, Imagine .. I'm about 18, and when I went on Friday, there was a load of school kids out. I ended up with half a group of 10 of these kids my age, and they were in the range around 5,000 and had no clue what they were doing. I also had to teach these four year olds who kept getting put next to me.. None had any idea what to do or even how to do the seatbelt, I remember hearing one kid who was like 7 saying to his brother "Man he's good" when I scored 400,000 lol

i went on saturday and maxed out everytime....it made me really mad when this little girl told everyone in her family that i cheated and that she got the best score(she had 24,000 and got the bonus) i guess im not really mad but i hate it that i try so hard and then people dont appreciate my work
i sometimes think i would have more people believing me if i stopped at 956,000 or something
(my new mib high score:1,312,000 yahhhh or for u more precise people 1,311,999)

You've got it all wrong. You do it for yourself not to impress anyone. If someone comments and asks for help then you teach them or give them some hints. Then whenever their score increases, you cheer them on. I get more excitement seeing one of my "former students" improving and even exceeding my score. Sometimes I ride with them and we see who can max out first. Many of them have far surpassed me and I couldn't be prouder.

its just that i was told by almost everyone i rode with that day that i cheated
it would be different if she asked my for help or asked what aliens u should hit

anyway on that day i was helping someone
my next door neighbor is a couple years younger than me and ever since i helped him he has increased his score from 111,000 to 396,000....he still has some work but i think he is doing great for his age
i really thought that he was going to beat me on one of the runs becasue i idn't do so well
the cool thing is is that he has beaten everyone else in my family

I have never been accused of cheating (and I have ridden waaaaaaay too many times), but even if I had been, who cares, its not like you'll ever see these people again.

It is funny though when people point out my scores. Most of the time, it is always the father of the group who has to point out my score as if I am threatening his position as alpha male. Its quite hilarious to see.

But, one of the last times I went (2-3 weekends ago, wow), a mother and her son were riding in the SRL, and I was placed in the same car as the mother. At the end of the ride, she was so excited to see my score, much more excited than I was, lol. After we got off, she ran to the other side, grabbed her son by the arm and dragged him over to where I was sitting. It was pretty hilarious to see BTW Bev, I was in a hurry, so didn't stick around to give pointers, sorry )

Bev, can you believe its only been a little voer a year since we've been able to consistently max out?

I know. It seems like much longer. I think I first maxed out the first part of Jan.2004 but I wasn't consistent. It took even longer to max out on the red side and even longer if I got a cricket.

I remember the first time I did it and rushed down to purchase the picture and was so upset to see that the picture had all the scores as zero.

mib999999 i have been waiting to get a chance to thank u for the great guide u made
im only just a kid and ur guide has helped me from the start and of course bev helped me a lot too
i really just want to thank all of u for the great help
i now pass the well known secrets of this famed ride onto my friends and family and find it amazing that so many people have looked for help and have been able to max out on this ride
my next acomplishment is to max out with a cricket
i have been able to master the right and left side, but when i have a cricket i find myself dropping down to the 6 and 7 hundreds

anyway i really feel like i have been an idiot with my past couple of posts and would like to thank u all for your help
also it would be cool to meet up with u guys sometime at unviersal and really test our skill

thanks again

I was rereading this thread and first i am amazed how many people have looked at this thread. I was on MIB within the first week of opening when the air conditioning would freeze you out of the building, and there were no lines and no single rider. What a different world it is now!!

This thread and eventual handbook was a result of people asking over and over how i was able to score so high. Remember that at the time, scoring so high was hitting in the upper 800's plus, and maybe maxing out, 3 out of 20 runs per day.

I am glad and overwhelmed at the level you guy's now play at. I would love to make a few runs with you guys in the future. It would be a real honor to watch you guys do your thing.

The most important thing is to make sure the ride remains fun for you no matter what you score cause it is a great ride in and of itself.
