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. If the player does not hide in the barrel when the Chain Chomp charges at the barrel, they are momentarily stunned, and cannot move. If the player does not reach the goal within the time limit, they lose.

In the Play Land version of the game, the course is longer, and the player must instead make it to the goal to earn the fastest time.
