Coney Island is a 4-Player minigame found in Mario Party 5, Mario Party: The Top 100, and Mario Party Superstars. Originally, the minigame was named Ice-Cream Catcher, and it was included as part of a Mario Party 5 demo found on a bonus disc bundled with preorder copies of Mario Kart: Double Dash!! The minigame takes place atop a statue of Mario holding an ice cream cone upward, which plays homage to another New York City landmark, the Statue of Liberty. The name of the minigame itself additionally is named after the famous amusement park in Brooklyn.


The camera shows the entire Mario statue as it heads up to the surface of the ice cream cone it holds, with the four players standing on it.


This minigame's object is to catch the scoops of ice cream that fall from above by moving to where their shadows are. As the player's pile of ice cream becomes bigger, it becomes harder for them to walk and turn. The player with the biggest ice cream cone at the end of the 30-second time limit (and therefore, the one who caught the most ice cream) is the winner. There are eight different flavors.


The ending to Coney Island in Mario Party 5

The four players line up in the center of the area. In Mario Party 5, the winning player's/players' ice cream cone(s) then shrink(s) to a smaller size as they strike a victory pose. The other players sulk, and their ice cream cones disappear.
