Treadmill Grill is a 4-Player minigame that appears in Mario Party 3.


The four players are stationed on a series of conveyor belts, with each of them in a corner of the playfield as blue Podoboos appear one by one and surround it before the game starts.


The objective of the minigame is for each player to knock the other players off the conveyor belts within the time limit. In addition to each other, the players must avoid the red Podoboos that occasionally leap onto the conveyor belts to chase one of the players, with up to three Podoboos being present. The players can stun other players by jumping on them, punching them, or ground-pounding them. If a player is stunned by a jump or punch, their movement is slowed and their jump height is decreased. If a player is stunned by a Ground Pound, that player is immobilized for a few moments. In addition, the four rows of conveyor belts each move left or right at varying speeds, changing direction occasionally. The size of the conveyor belts also decreases as time passes. If three players are eliminated before 30 seconds pass, the remaining player wins. If time runs out and two or more players remain or if all players touch the Podoboos, the minigame is considered a tie.
