Speedway Orbs

To earn the Orb in each of the four speedways you must first find the hidden task to perform. The game cannot be completed 100% without the Orbs.

    Ocean Speedway

    There is a large group of spectators, ahead and to the left as you begin the level. Fly to them and talk to the fish-like lady to acquire the task. Complete the task to receive an Orb.

    Metro Speedway

    Fly toward the large group of buildings. There is a waterfall in the center of them. Fly behind the waterfall to find a person that will reveal the task for the Orb.

    Icy Speedway

    Fly around the main island until you locate a igloo. Headbash the igloo and Hunter will give you the task for another Orb. If you have not learned the Headbash maneuver from World 3 (since this Speedway is on World 2), you can simply land and run into the igloo. The Speedway's automatically supercharges you when on the ground, giving you the power to break it.

    Canyon Speedway

    Follow the path of goats until reaching the area with the circling vultures. Fly high above to the canyon rim and look for Hunter in a little nook.

Summer Forest Orbs

    Find Hunter near the large pond and he will reveal a series of jumps to perform.

    Dive down a pool of water to your left where you started the level. Climb the stairs at the end to find the Orb.

    Once you have learned to climb, go to the large orange circle room. Climb the ladder to find the Orb.

    There is a door then some stairs in the room where Moneybags lowers a wall. At the top should be a window and a closed door to the right. Glide out the window and move to the left into another window to find the Orb.

Autumn Plains Orbs

    Before the stairs leading to the Boss are some cracks in the wall which you can ram through. Use the whirlwind, and then the next one, to reach the high tower. From here, look ahead and you will see a tall platform in the distance, outside and to the left of the outer wall of the main yard. Glide to it and get the Orb.

    From the tall platform (above), glide the outer wall and make your way to the left. At the end you should see another cracked wall. The Orb is inside.

Winter Tundra Orbs

    Use the whirlwind in the courtyard to rise high in the air. From here, go right and find the a waterfall going into a pool of water. Dive in the water and follow the path to the last Orb. You should come out near Canyon Speedway.

    Use the whirlwind again to go to the left side of the courtyard. Land on the wall. The Orb is just sitting there and is easy to find.

    After you learn how to headbash, look for the largest rock near the entrance to the courtyard. Headbash the rock and to find the Orb inside.
