Roller Coasters is a 4-players and duel minigame from Mario Party DS. Its name is a play on "roller coaster", a popular amusement park ride.


As a duel mini-game.

In this game, the players are in a sandbox, trying to reach the end, where there is a sand castle. 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. At the end of the game, if the record on completing the game is beaten, it will be shown. After this, the winning player will be seen on top of the sand castle doing his or her victory dance, while the losing players will be seen in front of the castle. If the game is tied, all the players will be seen in front of the sand castle.

If both players get the same score in the Duel variant that breaks the current record, it counts as a new record even though no one won, as it will say "Tie" after the "New Record" fanfare. This also applies to the other Duel minigames with a record system.
