Bobsled Run is a 2-vs-2 minigame in Mario Party, Mario Party 2, and Mario Party Superstars. The minigame seems to be based on the Big Penguin race in Cool, Cool Mountain from Super Mario 64 as the bobsleds are modeled after penguins in the second game of the Mario Party series. However, in the first game, they are normal sleds with the first team's having a Star front end and the second team's having a Mushroom front end.


The game splits the four players into two teams, each one getting its own bobsled. They must steer their way through a track down to the finish, hitting three speed boosts along the way. In the Mario Party 2 version, there are fewer guardrails, so it is easier to fall (or get pushed by an opponent) off and into oblivion than it is in Mario Party. The first team to reach the finish line is the winner. If neither team finishes within five minutes or both teams fall off the track, the game ends in a draw.

The minigame can be purchased for 100 Coins.
