Moleville Mountain is a minigame in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. It involves Mario riding a minecart on tracks. Mario controls the cart by leaning in the direction he wants it to travel. If he fails to lean or goes too fast, he will crash on the corners, losing time. In this minigame, Mario can collect mushrooms and use them to boost the cart's speed, and obtain coins that he can keep after completing the minigame.

During the ride, the player can:

  • jump by pressing B Button, so as to avoid pits and collect mushrooms and coins;
  • brake by pressing either A Button or Y Button, to avoid derailing and losing time in the case of the mine cart going too fast before turns, especially sharp ones;
  • make use of the mushrooms they collect by pressing X Button, that way giving the cart a speed boost;
  • honk the cart's horn by pressing L Button or R Button, though this has no actual effect besides the sound.

The first run through Moleville Mountain is mandatory and part of the story. Later, the moles make a tunnel leading directly to the mine cart that triggers the minigame, and charge ten coins to take this shortcut (Mario can still play Moleville Mountain by going through the Coal Mines and finding the mine cart). The moles keep a record of Mario's time and reward him every time he beats his record.
