I grab the third prize a majority of the time. The key to doing it effectively is grabbing the prize while leeching springs on the way up or down. I try to leach a spring on the first jump up, which requires a long or medium springs. Sometimes that requires leaching short springs until you get that long or medium spring. Then you have to leach the spring going up to the prize if you can help it and same with on the way down which require both to be long or medium springs. Sometimes you're fighting the fireball on this which can cost you leaching a spring or two which is 100 or 200 points. After grabbing the prize i wait for a short spring to go back down which i can sometimes leach but that can be risky. If I get some long springs i leach those until i get the short spring i can go on. Sometimes you have the fireball to leach as well. When it comes to this board you're fighting the timer which is 1 spring for 100 points, which is why leaching is necessary. Each time you miss leaching to grab the prize or go back down you lose 100 out of the 800 you just earned. Typically the last jump down you won't be able to leach which costs 100 points, and most of the time you will miss at least another spring or two so I say overall you can gain 500 points each time if you are effective. It just depends on the spring setups that are given to you. You can also gain some points if you have the fireball frozen where you can leach it as well. Ive had the fireball stuck for the majority of a board which resulted in well over 8000 points. Its worth it to me in the long run, I stopped doing during my second place game and kind of regret it, because it could have made the difference.
