Koopa's Seaside Soiree is one of the 6 board maps in Mario Party 4. As the name implies, the map was designed by Koopa. Koopa always wanted a seaside resort so he built a board map like one so players could experience it for themselves.
Happening Spaces have varied effects depending on where you land on them. If you land on one near Koopa's hotel called the Koopa Kabuna, Koopa will insist you pay a fee to stay. The fee will equal the amount of coins that has been invested in it already by players who have passed the Koopa space on either side. After you pay a fee, a tidal wave will come and demolish it to restart the whole process again. Happening Spaces near docks with fruit objects on them will summon a dolphin who will carry you to the dock with the same type fruit on it. This can obviously help or hurt you depending on the situation and where the Star happens to be at the time.
There are 2 Mini-Games on the board that can players can play when under the effects of a Mini Mushroom. One contains 3 melons. Each will contain an item and the player will be spun around before choosing a melon to make it more challenging. The item inside the chosen melon will be given to the player by Koopa. The other is something of a fishing game. The player must choose one of three rods. Each rod will pick up a fish. The bigger the fish that the player gets with his/her rod, the more coins s/he will get from Koopa.
In Story Mode, after emerging victorious in a standard 15-turn Battle Royal match, the player must battle Koopa in a special mini-game called Kareening Koopas to get his/her birthday present from Koopa.
