    Back Forward Run (PC)

  • Another Note: When you try to trigger this event, it may end up occurring the "Moving Smoke" glitch.
  • Another Note: If you have a version of the game from before the Rio update, you should use a regular Headstart instead.


  1. Get Super Sneakers power-up (It can be easier to find if the Super Sneakers is upgraded).
  2. Find a jetpack, with the Super Sneaker power still in effect.
  3. As you collect coins, you should receive two coins per single coin.


Hover-Mixture is a glitch which the jetpack will act like a hoverboard. This is a crazy glitch that doesn't affect anything, also to active this glitch the hoverboard is supposed to end perfectly while picking up a jetpack at the same time, which is almost impossible to occur.


  1. Activate a hoverboard.
  2. Wait until the hoverboard ends.
  3. This is the hard part: When the hoverboard perfectly ends, pick up a jetpack at the same time.

Moving Smoke

Mid-Air Smoke is a glitch when the Jetpack's "colored" smoke will go to other directions, other than the jetpack itself. You need the Bouncer hoverboard for this glitch.


  1. Activate Bouncer.
  2. This is the slightly hard part: Pick up a jetpack, at the same time the Bouncer still activated.
  • Note: The cheat might not work.
  • Another Note: Upgrade your jetpack for longer durability.
  • Third Note: Sometimes you don't need the Bouncer, and this occurs when you do the "Back Forward Run" glitch.


Invisi-Board is a glitch that will make the hoverboard invisible, while surfing. This glitch occurs when you try to do the "Back Forward Run." glitch, but ended up occurring this glitch.


  1. Start playing and lose in a few seconds you begin.
  2. Just as you lose, click on your mega headstart to activate it. You will fly back forward.
  3. When you land, activate your hoverboard, and look if it's invisible.
  • Note: Sometimes it's doesn't work, so try again, but save some hoverboards and mega headstarts.
