Treadmill Grill is a 4-player minigame that is found during the events in the Nintendo 64 game Mario Party 3.


At the beginning of the minigame, the blue Lava Bubbles on the ground appear surrounding the playfield one by one. The four players are on rows of conveyor belts, each of them staring at another player.


The objective of the minigame is that the players attempt to knock all the remaining players off the four rows of conveyor belts within the time limit of 30 seconds.

During physical gameplay, the players can jump on the players, attack by punching, or use Ground Pound to stun the other players. If a player is stunned up a single jump or attack, the player can barely move and jump. If a player is stunned by a Ground Pound, the player cannot move at a brief moment, a chance that the player will lose the minigame.

In addition, the four rows of conveyor belts will move either at the left side or the right side varying the speed, the conveyor belts' direction will change in a brief moment. Another obstacle the players have to avoid is that the red Lava Bubbles occasionally get on the conveyor belts attached, attempting to chase to one of the players. The Lava Bubbles can also disappear if they fall either at the left or right side while caught in the conveyor belt. The limit of Lava Bubbles on the play-field would be three Lava Bubbles. The last gimmick used in this minigame is that the four rows of conveyor belts decrease its size as the time passes, making the gameplay challenging.

If one of the players successfully knocked the remaining players onto the blue Lava Bubbles before the time is up, he or she wins. If the time is up and the remaining players are still on the conveyor belts, it is considered a tie.
