The camera shows the entrance as the competitors come within the room. Spinies are dropped on a cog.
The objective of the game is for the players to get to the other side of the board of spinning gears. If the player falls, he or she has to start from the beginning. Whoever reaches the other side first wins.
The gears differ greatly in size and shape. Every time the Thwomp in the middle of the board pounds, the gears move in the opposite direction. There is also a hard-to-cross shortcut in front of the Thwomp's platform.
