Cannonball! (Wind Me Up! in British English) is a General minigame from Mario Party: Island Tour. The American name refers to a jumping technique where one leaps into a pool of water while hugging their knees.


The players do their preparation poses, and turn to look at their cannons. The minigame then begins.


The player must crank their cannon handle as fast as they can for four seconds. After that, the characters jump into their cannons and are fired out at a far distance depending on how fast they cranked. The player who has the farthest distance is the winner.


  • Rotate Circle Pad – Crank the handle

In-game text[edit]

  • Rules"Wind your cannon with Circle Pad as fast as you can. Whoever flies the farthest wins."
