Touring The World Since 2013

A true Subway Surfers champion doesn’t simply call it quits after beating that tempting high score, of course. That’s why, in the spirit of keeping the content fresh, the famous World Tour was created! Every few weeks, the Subway Surfers crew travel to a new location, where they can access special-edition characters who are more than happy to show new surfers around. So far, the World Tour has taken plenty of beautiful cities and countries by storm all across the world, including:

Paris: The last time the World Tour stopped here, the surfers got to meet Coco, the beautiful but not very talkative French mime. The Parisian subway tracks are beautifully adorned by charming street-side cafés, shopping centers, and other gorgeous attractions that only Paris can deliver.

Mumbai: Mumbai was never the same after the Subway Surfers World Tour rolled (or ran, rather) through! Just ask Jay, the Indian superstar of the subway, who helped the crew fly through crowded marketplaces, tourist shops and even ancient temples. If you get to go on a future stop, make sure you don’t get too distracted by the beautiful surroundings, however; the trains don’t stop for tourists!

London: Speaking of tourists, Jamie (the London special character) couldn’t stop snapping his camera when the surfers strolled through London, one the most popular World Tour stops. That's understandable because the snow-topped row houses were a sight to behold.

New York: The very first World Tour stop ever, New York, holds a special place in Subway Surfers history. Tony, the streetwise New York City native and faithful tour guide, was happy to show everybody the ropes - and his sweet skills. If you join on a return trip, just remember - the coppers don’t take kindly to people holding up the subway line!

Tokyo: The surfers dashed their way through the beautiful and bustling cityscape that is Tokyo, where Harumi guided them through beautiful cherry blossom trees, rainbow tunnels, ancient buildings and busy streets. Too bad you can’t stop to take any pictures!

This is just a small taste of the World Tour, which has also taken the Subway Surfers characters to Iceland, Mexico, and dozens of other exotic and challenging locations. Sometimes the World Tour revisits an old favorite, sometimes it travels somewhere new - you have to play Subway Surfers often to find out where the next stop is!

(Hint: you can check out Subway Surfers videos on the Kiloo YouTube if you want to see past World Tour stops. You can also find teasers on the channel when the surfers are about to go to a new destination!)

Subway Surfers Tips & Tricks

Sure, swiping left and right or up and down seems easy at first, but when a solid wall of trains is speeding right at you, you will need to have some fancier moves than that! Every once in a while, you will come across a seemingly impossible combination of obstacles. Never fear, we’ve compiled a list of our go-to tips and tricks for Subway Surfers who need a little skill boost

First, you will definitely have to perfect the art of switching lanes in mid-air. In many cases, you have to jump up to reach those floating coins while a train is barreling right at you. If you’re daring and quick enough, you can get that coin AND dodge the train by switching lanes in mid-jump at the last second.

Especially if you found yourself a pair of bouncy Super Sneakers, which allow you to jump directly onto a train from the ground, you will sometimes need to land quickly so that you can jump again. Did you know that you can swipe down in mid-air to come crashing back to the ground?

Sometimes, you can actually get in a position where it is impossible to get past a certain set of obstacles, which is why you need to make sure you have plenty of hoverboards. Keep your eyes ahead and make your decision quickly - double tap the screen to use one and hold your breath, because it’s going to get messy when you hit that train! Don’t worry, when the dust settles, you’ll still be sprinting down the tracks!

In general, you should make an effort to remain on top of the trains, as this will give you a better view of the challenges that lurk ahead of you. Keep track of your active missions, because these will increase your Score Multiplier so that you can strive for that jaw-dropping high score. Finally, keep your eyes peeled for powerups at all times! Once you have enough coins, you can upgrade your powerups so their effects last longer.

Surfing Down Memory Lane: Subway Surfers Milestones

Thanks to a growing following of dedicated surfers, the developers of the game have been able to spend the past six years adding content, making improvements, and most amazingly, winning awards with Subway Surfers. May of 2012 was when the daydreams of train-hopping adventurers became a reality with the release of Subway Surfers on the App Store. Shortly after, in September of the same year, the game was released on the Google Play store. In January of 2013, the surfers traveled to the first World Tour destination: New York City. The spring and summer of 2014 were a busy time for updates, as the Spray Can Awards, Top Run, and Daily Events schedule features were all introduced before the summer was out.

After all of the work put into development, promotion, and updates through the first three years of Subway Surfers, the community rewarded Subway Surfers with some incredible achievements. In September of 2015, the game surpassed the 1-billion Subway Surfers download mark, and in December of 2017, Subway Surfers was announced the most downloaded game in the world for that year. Possibly Subway Surfers’ greatest achievement yet was becoming the first game to ever surpass 1 billion downloads on the Google Play store in March of 2018. It got even better two months later when it reached the 2-billion Subway Surfers download mark worldwide (across all platforms)! If you’re a seasoned surfer, you are part of a fantastic story. If you’re just joining the Subway Surfers World Tour, welcome on board!
