Roller Coasters is a 4-Player and Duel minigame in Mario Party DS. Its name references a popular type of amusement park ride.


Duel mode for Roller Coasters in Mario Party DS
Duel minigame version

In this minigame, the players are in a sandbox, trying to reach the end, where there is a sandcastle. To do this, they must roll on rubber balls. On the way, however, are buckets, houses made of blocks, and moving toy trucks to block the way. Whoever reaches the end first wins.

If both players break the current record in the Duel variant by tying, it counts as a new record even though neither player won, as the screen says "Tie" after the "New Record" fanfare. This also applies to the other Duel minigames with a record system.


The winner does their victory dance atop the sandcastle, with the loser(s) in front of the sandcastle. If the minigame ends in a tie, all the players will be seen in front of the sandcastle.

In-game text[edit]
