River Raiders is a 1-vs-3 coin-collecting minigame found in Mario Party 3 and Mario Party Superstars. Its name may be a reference to the Atari 2600 game River Raid.


One player in the Red Shell boat drives around to get coins, while the other three players on Green Shells collect the coins together. There are some logs that float around the river. If a player hits a log, that player is temporarily unable to get coins or Coin Bags. At the end of the minigame, the solo player and team get to keep the number of coins they collected, and the coins will be added to their coin totals.
