The title card for Cool as Ice
Playing ball against Mr. Blizzard

Cool as Ice is a quest in Mario Party Advance that takes place at the Ice Stadium. It is initiated when the player enters the baseball stadium and Mr. Blizzard, who is practicing his pitch, asks them if they have a question. Replying to the contrary has him nonchalantly going back to his practice, while agreeing with him properly starts the quest. Mr. Blizzard introduces himself as the ace pitcher of the Snowtown Ice Stars, prompting the player to ask Mr. Blizzard to pitch for them. He accepts, and puts another caveat on top of the challenge: if the player can hit one of his swings out of the park, they receive a Gaddget. The game then switches perspectives to a minimalist rendition of the stadium, with the player and Mr. Blizzard silhouetted. The player is given five tries to hit one of Mr. Blizzard's pitches, and each pitch comes out at a different speed. If the player misses every ball, Mr. Blizzard gloats about his victory and forces the player to restart the quest. If they manage to hit at least one pitch, Mr. Blizzard claims that he went easy on the player, but still rewards them with the Mini Slugger Gaddget, ending the quest.
