The Mystery Train is about to depart

Boo, Mario Party 4

The Mystery Train is a vehicle of sorts found in Mario Party 4. It is featured in an event on the Boo's Haunted Bash board. The Mystery Train is composed of four ghostly coffins that shimmer in a translucent blue and hover above the ground. It can be found in a cemetery-like environment in the northwestern corner of the board and is managed by a Boo. The event is triggered automatically once a player passes by.

The Mystery Train event is affected by the presence of the Red Boos on the board. The player gets a chance to ride the train if the Red Boos are absent while the event is triggered. The player then gets on one of the four coffins and hover along the field. Any opponent that the train meets during its way gets picked up and rides the train as well. The person in the lead can decide in which direction the vehicle moved until it reaches a graveyard where the players are released again. The player who started the event continues to move forward, depending on the amount of steps they has left.

If the event is triggered while the Red Boos are present on the board, the Mystery Train does not depart. The Boo in charge appears and dismisses the player, claiming that the Red Boos are spoilsports and that the train does not move until they have vanished again.
