The Glider is a gliding tool that can be purchased at the Mountain Top Shop for 5,000,000 honey. It allows you to glide through the air and change your direction while airborne. It has a much faster speed than the Parachute. It is also the top-tier gliding tool. It is basically an upgraded version of the Parachute.
To activate it, jump twice. If you have just jumped into the air, jump once more. If you got airborne through some other method (a cannon, for example), double-jump. To disengage it, jump once more.
The primary use of the Glider is to glide to places on the map that would otherwise be inaccessible. It is vital to collecting many of the Royal Jelly and ticket tokens around the map and to perform several shortcuts. It is also used to reach the Star Hall on top of the Noob Shop. The Glider can also be used to dodge mobs since most of them can't detect you while you're in the air.
The Glider's gliding speed is not affected by Haste, or other speed boosts.
