    No one brags about their scores anymore. Why?
    Should I be happy as "cosmically challenged" , or is there a better place?
    Open to suggestions on attaining a higher score. Any help appreciated!

    Let's see...first time I rode I think I wiped my score from my memory it was soooo bad! I was addicted from that moment though. I cant remember but I am thinking my high score was 450,000. Unfortunately my riding partners were my 2 boys! Total scores...not very good :rolleyes:

    The best ranking you can get is "Galaxy Defender," where you'll be told that your fresh new MIB suit will be ready for you next Wednesday.

    The tips that I've found useful are these:

    1) The gun is automatic. That is, just hold down the trigger and it will keep firing. It took me forever to figure that one out, but my finger thanked me once I did.

    2) At the start of the ride, in the "target shooting" area, pick one of the aliens and shoot it as much as you can, using tip #1. This way you don't waste time aiming on a different target after each shot. My max score leaving this area was ~41,000, but I'm sure that can easily be beaten.

    3) My friend swears by this rule, but I don't know if it really helps or not. He says to concentrate on the smaller aliens hiding up in the windows and such.

    4) Many of the aliens later on can be shot several times, like the alien in the window with the one big eye.

    5) If you are on the right side track, you can still hit some of the left side's aliens, like the ones in the trees just before the scan.

    6) The fusion exhaust port. After a while, the car opposite you will stop spinning when its port is hit. That doesn't mean you can't still score off of it... Using tip #1 you can hit it 5 or 6 times in a row quite easily.

    7) Push the red button at the end.

    My personal best is 735,375, but I'm pretty sure I remember someone posting here a while back a score higher than that (and I don't mean 999,999 due to the ride stopping).

    Good luck!

    I seemed to get better scores when shooting aliens in the mouth. Anyone else find this?

    My top score was 500,000. You can hit some aliens many times. The training room is one place that you can rack up a lot of points. You can hit an alien many times. I usually do that and come out of that area with around 20,000 to 30,000 points.

    I did not know that you can hold the trigger down! Good to know, my finger thanks you too!

    I usually count on the red button to build up points. Constantly shooting whether you see an opponent or not is a theory of mine... :rolleyes:

    Since I ride with my son and want HIM to get more points than I do, I usually hold back and press the button FOR him. I'd like to see what I could get without this concern.....

    With all these hints, I will have a hard time beating everyone at the Universal meet! :)

    Okay I have a question about that little red button. Since I never did the queue I wasnt sure when to push it. The first few times I never even pushed it. They kept saying dont push it...why? and when at the end do you push it? Thanks :D

    You push it when an MiB agent says, "There's only one thing left to do -- push the red button!"

    Of course, at the meet, you can push it after I do. :)

    There is a target not far from the entrance on the backside of the alien that gives you 100,000 points when hit. Anyone know what I am talking about?

    --->"where you'll be told that your fresh new MIB suit will be ready for you next Wednesday"

    I had a score of 611,000. As for the suit line I have heard this everytime I went on the ride no matter what the score.

    In my experiences, if you rank as a Galaxy Defender, you get the suit. If you're Cosmically Average, you get this alien boss thing saying "you zigged when you should have zagged." If you're Bug Bait, then nothing happens.

    I'm not sure of the exact scores that determine which ranking you get.

    I've never heard of that target but I'd like to check it out the next time I go. Could you give a little more detail about its location?

    I rode it today,

    If you are on the right side you get the message about the suit will be ready next wednesday. On the left side you get the coach telling you should have zigged when you zagged....

    My Score was 645,000 3 of us on the car got the bonus which I had never seen before...

    I believe the only difference you will find is in the two final video segments.

    Thanks for the tip in about holding the button down. Didn't improve my score, but improved my finger health. ;-)

    At a Universal meet, three of us got the 100,000 point bonus. I guess we all hit the button at the same time!

    Hey I never like to post incorrect material so here is a retraction and an update:

    I earlier indicated that the scene refering to either the tailor or coach was dependant upon track.

    Nope...On the Left Track the tailor is on the left the coach on the right. On the right it is the same. You can only see the one lit up (dependant on your cars average). Sorry for wrong info.
