Did you ever want to get stomped on by angry rectangles with happy faces on them but didn't know where to go? Did you ever wonder what color lava is? Then come to Bowser's Castle, the best place in the Marioverse! (except everywhere else). This castle also serves as a race track, a tennis court, and a baseball stadium! Originally only accessable to Bowser, Mario, Yoshi, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Rosalina, Wario, Waluigi, Miis, Koopa Kids, Goombas, Paragoombas, Koopa-Troopas, Paratroopas, and pretty much everyone, the castle is now open to everyone! Our chefs make gourmet meals out of freshly cooked Mario. Vegetarian? Don't worry, our chefs will cook up some nice 8-bit mushroom soup. Come to Bowser's Castle, and you WON'T come out!

BTW: WE AREN'T TELLING YOU IF ITS BOWSERS CASTLE 1, 2, 3, or the one in SMRPG you have to find out yourself hahahahahah!
