A screenshot of Boost Rush mode

Boost Rush is a mode featured in New Super Mario Bros. U and its Nintendo Switch remake. In Boost Rush, the player will play through a series of levels grouped together in packs, and the objective is to play through autoscrolling levels and collect the most coins, lose the least amount of lives, and make or beat the best time. The speed of the scrolling increases every ten Coins, while Star Coins are worth 20 coins each. Like in Story Mode, the player has limited lives and can gain more by collecting coins or extra lives, although all players share the same lives, and the player using Boost Mode can pop any players in bubbles. When a player is playing Boost Rush, Miis can be seen in the background, supporting the players.

In the Penguin Pack, the Ice Flower is replaced by the Penguin Suit.
