Bumper Ball Maze is an unlockable 1-Player minigame in Mario Party. It can be purchased and played at the Mini-Game House.


The player, on a ball, must move through the path maze to reach the finish line. Wooden shortcuts are provided throughout the path. If the player reaches the goal, they win a number of Coins depending on how long it took to reach the goal. Specifically, the number of Coins won is equal to 70 minus the time taken in seconds. If the player falls off the edge or if 60 seconds pass, they lose the minigame, but no Coins are taken away.

  • Bumper Ball Maze 1: Different path with a shortcut, unlocked after the player completes Mini-Game Island.
  • Bumper Ball Maze 2: Different path with two shortcuts, unlocked after the player completes all 50 minigames in Mini-Game Island.
  • Bumper Ball Maze 3: Different path with no shortcuts, unlocked after the player sets new time records on Maze 1 and Maze 2.


  • Control Stick – Move
