I'll be glad to meet you there sometime and give you some tips. You can easily get 200,000 points off of the sensors on the big bug and it's not unusual to get 300,000 from shooting the sensors. Don't go for the ones under the bug as most of them are not active sensors. Shoot the round circles under the claws that move up and down. Do not hit the red button at all as your gun shuts off at that moment and the only points you will get will be the bonus.

the highest i have ever gotten on that ride is 800,000 solid...

if you take the left side, at the end when you have to shoot at eachother, there is a small alien in the 2nd story of the building right after you get out of the little over hang((( or whatever you want to call it))) shoot at him like you have never shot before!!!!! keep on aming at him untill you get around the corner... then

the rocket that is on the billboard at the end, over where will smith is explaining how big the bug is, you need to shoot at the far tail of the rocket, and you easily get acouple of thousand points...


just remember,

the smaller the target, the more points it is worth...

Yes, I did ride with a guy a few times with the revenge of the mummy hat. I'm the one who almost always gets straight 9's. I asked if you worked at the Mummy with my son. I am 50 something years old and have shoulder length blonde hair. I moderate the discussion board at ioacentral.com.

Well one more exhaust hit would have gotten you over the top for all 9's. So close and yet so far!

The sensors are on the bar that runs horizontal not on the bugs. They are square computer chips. I usually hit the dropdown bugs first but you can hit the exhaust then if you want to. I usually don't because other people are usually shooting at the exhaust. I wait to hit the exhaust when we aren't facing the other car. I even turn around and shoot them from behind. I can hit the exhaust 20 or so times if I need to. You can also shoot the green eyes in the two movie posters (on the red side of the track) after you come out of the scanner.

The right side is what I call the red side becuase you stand on red marks when you are waiting to load. The other side has green numbers that you stand on.

The red side is harder as there are not as many targets also the sensors on the big bug do not work on the red side. You can aim for the sensors on the green side of the bug though.

There is a dog on the news stand on the red side that is good to hit also many posters with green eyes that turn red when you shoot them. 2 posters are right when you come out of the scanner on the red side and also another poster of an alien with glasses just before you get to Will Smith warning you about the big, big bug.

There is also a hidden sensor in some window blinds in the ambush area on the red side that give you 10,000 a hit. Nothing else in the ambush (trashcan) area is worth much though. It is easier to hit the alien that goes back and forth in the window in the training area when you are on the red side.

The dog is right before you get to the fire hydrant on the red side. You can only hit him if you are on the red side.

I do both the baby and the fire hydrant but I think the fire hydrant is better as you can only get 2 or 3 shots off of the baby carriage before the sensors go inactive while the fire hydrant stays active for my longer. You can hit it 10 or so times.

I seldom bother with the aliens in the crash site as the points are minimal.

what i meant was what other aliens in area 2 for the red side are high in points
should i just hit the usual guy who makes the glass breaking noise and the guy who appears in the window before the ambush

That's basically all.

After the crash scene you enter China town before entering the ambush at the trashcans. There is an alien in a window right next to the glass breaking alien. It is the one with the window shade that opens and closes. The sensor is on the bottom of the window sill. It is worth more than the glass breaking one. You can also shoot the guns that the giant eyeball alien has. My favoirite is when you are leaving the crash scene and right before you enter the ambush (trashcan area). It is in Chinatown in the upstair window on your right hand side who comes up slowly in the window and, when you shoot him, his green eyes turn red and it makes a weird sound. This one is worth 15,000 a shot and like the others, the sensor is on the bottom of the window sill not on the alien. It becomes active right after you do the spin at the breaking glass alien.
