Barrel Peril is a single-player minigame found in Mario Party Advance.


The player in the barrel must reach the goal line while being bumped by Chain Chomps as few times as possible. The player can avoid being bumped by one of the Chain Chomps by hiding in the barrel. Alternatively, if the player is far enough from the Chain Chomp, it is not able to reach them. If the player does not hide in the barrel when the Chain Chomp charges at it, they are knocked backwards and momentarily stunned, being unable to move for three seconds.

The player has 60 seconds to clear the minigame in Shroom City and Mini-Game Attack. The course is largely different between the aforementioned two modes; the Mini-Game Attack version contains fewer Chain Chomps than the Shroom City version. In Play Land, the course is longer, and the player must instead make it to the goal to earn the fastest time.
