several difficult points you’ll encounter while attempting to unlock this achievement.
We’ll give a quick rundown below, but also make sure to watch the inputs on the
lower-right corner of the video for exact movements.
pipe-to-pipe jump: Make sure that from the checkpoint just before this gap you
are in the neutral position and at full throttle. As soon as you hit the first
pipe, simply lean forward to make the distance.
the stack of tires: Keep your speed fairly high here, making sure that at least
your back tire hits the tire stack in order to give you the necessary momentum
to reach the next ramp.
hopping up and over the stump: Stop on the tire stack just before this section
and put yourself in neutral position. Hold full throttle, then quickly lean
backwards then lean forward just as your front tire passes the stump
(vertically) and keep the forward lean. If your front tire touches any of the
ramp leading up to the stump, you can’t nail this maneuver.
- Log to log
bunny hop: Stop near the checkpoint and reverse until your back tire touches
the wooden plank. Lean back, then hit the gas while still leaning. As soon as
your back tire passes the support logs, start your forward lean. Land your
front wheels first and at a very shallow angle to complete this maneuver.
- Log to
plank jump: Stop just before the checkpoint and hit the gas. Lean back slightly
as you ascend the log ramp, making sure your back tire is always touching -
otherwise, you won’t have enough speed to cross the gap.
- The steep
inclines: Just take your time here. Keep leaning forward and apply only a small
amount of throttle.

UFO event in the Skill Game Circus and fly your UFO all the way past the final
landing pad and down into the tall building you find there. Make sure to get
inside within the first 30 seconds or else you cannot gain safe access. Once
inside, carefully maneuver to the end of the path and land on the designated
pad to unlock the achievement. You are not timed once inside the building, so
take it slow and be feathery with your controls.

don’t fault until you’ve passed the final checkpoint. You may accidentally get
this while going for the Burnt to a Crisp achievement, though you can easily
manufacture the proper circumstances on any early hard track, such as Home Run.
