Mario Party: The Top 100: Mario Party Superstars:

Mecha Marathon (formerly parsed Mecha-Marathon) is a 4-Player minigame found in Mario Party 2, Mario Party: The Top 100, and Mario Party Superstars. The stage is set in a grassy environment with four divided lanes of smooth dirt.

Gameplay[edit]

Players have to wind up their Mecha Fly Guys as fast as they can within the time limit. Each player has a lane for themselves and a Mecha Fly Guy to wind up. Once the time is up, the players will release their Mecha Fly Guys, which will start hovering down the path. As the Fly Guys fly, there will be signs every ten yards to show where they are. The Fly Guys that were not wound up enough will fall to the ground after some distance. The player that has their Mecha Fly Guy land the farthest wins.

In the Mini-Game Coaster, the human player must make their Mecha Fly Guy fly the farthest to win.

In Mario Party Superstars, the highest score possible is 70.00 yards/m.[1]
