Burnstile is a 2-vs.-2 minigame in Mario Party 6. Its name is a portmanteau of "burn" and "turnstile."


Each team jumps over the slowly rotating turnstile once. It then stops between the platforms as the minigame starts.


The players must avoid the spiky turnstile by jumping over it every time it passes the platform that they are on. The turnstile moves slowly at first, but it gains momentum as it continues to rotate. Hitting the turnstile results in the player being eliminated. They can also be eliminated by falling into the lava surrounding the platforms. The last player standing wins the game for their team. If there are two players remaining and they are on the same team, that team wins as well.


The winners stand on their platform and perform their victory animations.
