Furious that the machine is mocking her, Babs decides to use one of her Batgirl's gadget but once again failed to win the prize. enraged Barbara tries a barrage of punches and kicks but no use as she still can reach the 500 point mark but she refuses to give up. Kara returns and wondered if Barbara won the prize yet, only for her to come up with an idea; Barbara borrowed Kara's skateboard then appeared on top of the highest point of the rollercoaster track, ride around the track and use the momentum of the track to gain enough speed to punch the machine and win.
