There is a steering wheel that moves the car to the right or the left. The Mario button makes the car jump and Mario and Yoshi run. The Yoshi button makes Yoshi jump. The functionality of these controls are available only in certain sections of the ride.[2] Player input is not required to "win"; the ride will continue and the computer will win for the player if no action is taken.[3]

The game starts with Mario and Yoshi going into a representation of the physical ride for a drive. The player will swerve through a stray boulder on the left and leap over a chasm while Mario narrates. After a period of time, the two meet up with Princess Toadstool and offer her a ride. Bowser then appears and whisks her away in his Koopa Clown Car. Mario and Yoshi pursue on foot for a brief while and catch up with Bowser. Bowser sends out four Mechakoopas. The first one is automatically defeated as a demonstration while the last three can be stomped on by the player. The computer will stomp them if the player refuses. After this, Bowser flees and lets Toadstool go. The three thank the player for riding.[4]
