Būbū Mario is a common Mario arcade-ride hybrid game released only in Japan by Banpresto in 1993. The machine's dimensions are 1,630mm tall, 900mm wide, and 1,650mm long.[1]


Būbū Mario consists of a car. There is a steering wheel that moves it 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 is 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 swerves through a stray boulder on the left and leaps over a chasm while Mario narrates. After a period of time, he and Yoshi meet up with Princess Peach and offer her a ride. King Koopa 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 King Koopa, who 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, King Koopa flees and lets Peach go. Mario, Yoshi, and Peach then thank the player for riding.[4]
