Tragic Carpet Ride (known as Mind Over Mattermouth in the British English version) is a General minigame from Mario Party: Island Tour. The American English name is a pun on "magic carpet ride", and the British English name is a pun on the saying "mind over matter" and the Mattermouth enemies.


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 are knocked back and stunned for a short time. The players that are left standing win.


  • Circle Pad – Move
  • A Button – Jump
