In Mario Kart 64, you can get the Triple Mushroom Power up. I am wondering if I should use all three Mushrooms at the same time, or one at a time, after the boost runs out?

I tried both methods but can’t figure out the most effective way to use the Mushrooms.

Using them separately is the most effective way. The speed of the mushrooms does not compound so it is more beneficial to space them out.

  • This is the correct answer. The game has a "using mushroom" state for each player and everytime you use a mushroom, it just resets the timer for the boost. Use a mushroom in the middle of a previous boost and you lose the remaining time on the last mushroom you used when the timer resets.
