Written By: Ryan Olsen


Credits screen
Enter this cheat in the magic code screen to see the credits.

Extreme Opponents
Enter TIMETOLOSE at the magic codes screen and players can battle it out against opponents possessing extremely hard AI.

Adventure Two (Mirror Courses)
To access Adventure Two, you need to beat Wizpig in Future Funland and in the Overworld, get the TT and Wizpig amulets, and get golds in all four Trophy races.

Adventure Two is the same full set of courses from Adventure One, except they're all mirrored.

Code Access
To access all of the codes, you need to beat entire adventure (one). After beating Wizpig (in either the first or second race), you'll open up the credits. Watch the credits cut-scenes at the end and before it finishes, a code, like "FreeFruit" will appear. Go to Options and enter them into the Magic Code List.

Each time you beat Wizpig in either the first or second race, you will see a new code given. There are tons of them!

Free Fruit
By beating Wizpig the second time, and after watching the screen credits, at the end you'll see the password, "FreeFruit." Enter this in to start with 10 bananas.

Future Funland
To access Future Funland, the fifth world, you must place first in all of the Trophy Races and acquire the Wizpig Amulet. You don't need the TT amulet to access the fifth world, but once you're in Future Funland, you'll need it to race Wizpig again.

Drive to the Trophy sign (near the Lighthouse) and park in front in of it to gain access. You will see your character enter into the lighthouse, which then turns into a rocketship and blasts off to space.

TT Amulet
To access the TT room in World 5, containing the second race with Wizpig, you need to get all of the TT keys in each of the four worlds. The keys are in located in Ancient Lake, Dino Domain; Snowball Valley, Snowflake Mountain; Crescent Island, Sherbet Island; and Boulder Canyon, Dragon Forest.

Wizpig Amulet
To piece together the full Wizpig amulet, you must race and beat each of the four bosses twice.

Turbo Start
As in so many N64 racing games, Diddy's got a Turbo Start (like Wave Race, Mario Kart 64). Just after the high-voiced announcer says "Get Ready" and the words start to fade, press the acclereration button (A). You'll get a mighty boost.

The boost is more powerful and lasts longer the later you enact it. But be careful not to start it too late or it won't work at all.


Dino Domain Key:

This key in the track called “Fossil Lake”. When you start, go straight. Look straight ahead, you can see the key located on a ramp right in front of you, in between two Stonehenge like monuments.

Snowflake Mountain Key:

This key is in the track called “Snowball Valley”. When you start, don’t go. Just make an immediate left and go through the path in the mountains. Then take another right and you should see the key in an alcove in the side of the mountain.

Sherbet Island Key:

This key is in the track called “Crescent Island”. When you start take the left path. After the second zipper, head left even more, into the water. Go and look at the side of the mountain straight ahead. There should be an alcove with the key in it.

Dragon Forest Key:

This key is located in the track called “Boulder Canyon”. Get to the part of the track where you see a bell hanging from the ceiling. Power up your speed burst to level 3 [get three balloons]. Then turn around and face the bell from the “wrong way” then hit the bell. The drawbridge in front of you should raise. Use your level 3 speed burst and speed up the raising drawbridge and get the key (make sure it’s a 2X burst, and be sure to jump right when you reach the top of the bridge!)

Dino Domain:

Jungle Falls:

This course is fairly short. There are some boosts that you want to take. Remember let go of the gas just before you hit a boost and you will go extra fast. When you are coming towards the end of the course lap, you will see a dinosaur head. Drive towards it. There is a speed boost in its head. This should take you to first if you are about 2 seconds away from first place.

Ancient Lake:

There isn't any short-cuts in this level. Although there are speed boosts. Release the gas just before you hit them.

Fossil Canyon:

There is a speed boost just before the lake. If you keep going straight on the road you will shoot directly into first place, that is if you aren't way behind. Once again remove your finger from the A button just as you hit the speed boost.

Hot Top Volcano:

As you start out take the tunnel furthest to the right. You will get a Blue Balloon. Then there is 2 ways to go, one of the ways is the short-cut. It is the one to the right. After that a while later there are 2 speed boost in a row. Use the Speed trick(letting go of the gas before going through the speed boost) and go through both speed boost. That should give you an extra 3 seconds.


Don't bump into this guy, he will smash you! At the start stay close to the center. make sure you got a Blue booster start. Grab the red balloon and drive to your right. The dinosaur should run past you. Aim the weapon at the dino. Drive pat him. Then there will be a blue balloon to the left of a tree, grab it and use it right away. Drive yourself toward the right. Grab the red balloon that is by a tree. Keep on driving up the hill. If you come to a blue balloon by a large rock, do not go for it. When you come to the gap in the ground where the huge rock falls try and grab the blue balloon and not the red one. use the blue balloon right away because the roads from then on are very slim. And at the very end it is so slim that it is very usual to hit a tree and have the dino win. While your skidding tap B and you should go right in. Make sure you only tap B a little bit cause this is a very good slide.
