Blown Hover (Hover Havoc in the British English version) is one of the General minigames from Mario Party: Island Tour. The name is a pun on "blown over" or "blown cover".


Players speed under a row of Flip Panels and then jump over a second row of them.


The game takes place on a long strip of road. The goal is to reach the end of the road in the fastest amount of time possible while riding on top of hoverboards. On the road, Flip Panels appear to serve as obstacles. Some of the panels can be dodged by simply going under them, while others need to be jumped. On the side of the screen is a boost meter that shows the player's speed; if the player hits an obstacle, they'll lose a certain amount of the meter (dependent on how they were hit), and if they avoid obstacles, the meter will quickly increase.

This minigame is also available in Time Attack as the eighth minigame. To achieve the bonus objective, the player must dodge every flip panel.


  • Circle Pad – Move left and right
  • A Button – Jump
