Ridiculous Relay is a 1-vs-3 minigame found in Mario Party 3.


The solo player and team players must outrace one another in four different vehicles. The solo player is hang-gliding and must dodge Bullet Bills and Paragaloombas on the way. Hitting any enemy slows the player down. The team players each partake in a three-legged course on water. The first player rows a Red Shell with an oar. The second player operates a Skeeter vehicle by positioning the legs to glide across the water. The third player drives a Bullet Bill motorboat. When the second player starts going, a Thwomp rises up, letting them continue. This also happens with the third player. The first side to cross the finish line wins.
