“Teleport from space station to space station as you marvel at the wonders of the universe in this outer-space race for the stars! It's one small party for man and one giant party for mankind!”
Future Dream is a board map in Dream Depot seen in Mario Party 5. The flavor text in the instruction booklet makes a reference to Neil Armstrong's famous quote "That's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind." Created from dreams of the future, the board is reminiscent of low-budget television shows. Literally, the board is a space station in what appears to be Outer Space, but it may be an optical illusion. Divided into three platforms, the only way to travel about the station is by teleportation devices, rocket ships, or shortcuts.
The ? Spaces on the central platform are next to three rocket ships. Players could use these if they landed on the spaces. Each rocket took players to either the left or right platforms' landing pads. There is a rocket ship game on the left station that can be played only if a player lands on the corresponding ? Space. While playing this, one controls the levitation of his or her ships to try and collect coins from the UFOs. Two more ? Spaces on a robot's arms on the right platform activate a slot machine. If played skillfully, players may earn special capsules by lining up the slots. A Mushroom Capsule is the consolation prize. Finally, the ? Spaces next to the "air taxis" on the left and right platforms allow players ride from one station to the other for a ten coins fee. Players can also use the floating platform on the left or right stations as a small shortcut.
In Story Mode, Bowser and Koopa Kid attempt to take over Future Dream. When the player arrives to challenge them, Koopa Kid takes over the area and divides into three people: Red Koopa Kid, Green Koopa Kid, and Blue Koopa Kid. The player fights in a party against the Koopa Kids and eventually win, leaving Bowser and Koopa Kid to escape. This battle took place on a simplified version of Future Dream.
