Tragic Carpet Ride (known as Mind Over Mattermouth in Europe and Australia) is a General minigame from Mario Party: Island Tour. Its North American name is a pun on "magic carpet ride", and the PAL name is a pun on the saying "mind over matter".


The players enter a room on a carpet, and then the floor around the carpet dissipates.


Mattermouths enter the room and start to eat the floor away. The players must avoid falling into the holes that the Mattermouths leave behind. If a player is touched by a Mattermouth, they will be stunned. The players that are left standing win.


  • Circle Pad – Move
  • A Button – Jump

In-game text[edit]

  • RulesNTSC "Dodge the Mattermouths and avoid falling off the carpet for as long as possible."
  • RulesPAL "Try to survive for as long as possible without falling through the floor."
