Cart Surfer is a Club Penguin minigame that can be played in the Mine. In Cart Surfer, you do various tricks and stunts to earn points, while riding a mine cart on a track. When the player finishes the game, they are directed to the Mine Shack. With the right combination of moves (see table below), Cart Surfer can be one of the fastest ways to earn coins in Club Penguin. It is one of the most popular games on the island. In the Cart Surfer mini game in Club Penguin: Elite Penguin Force, you have to jump over rocks and duck to avoid obstacles. In a game where you don't crash, there will be 8 corners. In this game, 'surfing' means to stand up and ride the cart.
The first time a trick is performed, the player receives a certain number of points. All the times that the same trick is performed in a row, only half the number of points is awarded. The only exception to this is the Rail Grind. You can take turns with the Rail Grind and the Surf as well as leaning.

Coin Earning Tips
The most efficient way to get coins on Cart Surfer is to alternate the Back flip and Air Twist, Hand Stand or Run on Rails: a 100 scoring stunt and any of the 80 scoring ones. Rail Grind is the highest scoring stunt for the turns. It also helps to crash a few times near the end, which gives the player more time to do tricks. When you lose a life you get the chance to get in about 2-3 moves in before the next turn so use your lives well and you can get an extra 540-840 points in cart surfer.
An efficient player can earn approximately 500 coins a game. If an efficient player also has every stamp for Cart Surfer, they can earn 1,000 coins.

Egyptian Cart Surfer
Egyptian Cart Surfer (also known as Cave Runner) was the original version of Cart Surfer that was in the works. This version was scrapped when the idea to make Cart Surfer came. Egyptian Cart Surfer required you to ride around in a mine cart collecting coins. The game was to be played in top-view (eagle eye). The music that was composed to accompany the game can be found.
