From the Super Mario Wiki
The Gritzy Desert is a large, barren desert in the northeastern-most part of the Mushroom Kingdom appearing in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time.
In the game, the Mario Bros. came here during their quest to find the Cobalt Star pieces. The Koopaseum is located in the middle of the desert and Gritzy Caves is found below the desert. There are four Dry Bones statues around the desert, that Mario, Luigi, Baby Mario and Baby Luigi must activate. When this happens, the Dry Bones Statues will open the entrance to the Koopaseum.
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the stage Mushroomy Kingdom features Gritzy Desert's music from Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time among other tracks.

- Gritzy Desert bears a storyline of the novel The Time Machine, except for the Koopaseum being a colosseum. The time traveler ends up in a desert via a time machine, and there is a dome-shaped building. Additionally, the hero travels through caves in the same area. Although the plotline is similar, it is possibly just a coincidence.
