Dream Bobsleigh is a Dream Event that appears in the Wii version of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. The objective of the event is to complete the course in the fastest time, with the event taking place at Nocturnus Gate. To unlock this event, the player must reach day 3 in Festival Mode. The starting record for this event is held by Silver with a time of 1:52.485.
The gameplay of this Dream Event is heavily based on the Special Stages that appear in Sonic Heroes, with the music that plays during the event being an arrangement of the music that plays in those stages.
in this event, the player starts by swinging the Wii Remote downwards. Doing so with perfect timing will grant the player a small speed boost, however doing so too early will cause the player to have a delayed start. Once the sled is moving, the player must shake the Wii Remote up and down to accelerate, with greater acceleration achieved by swinging faster. When the sled crosses the red line, the player must press to board the sled. The sooner after crossing the line the player presses the button, the greater the initial boost the led will receive. Once in the tunnel, the player must tilt the Wii Remote left and right to move around the tunnel. The player must collect the colored balls found along the tunnel, which grant an additional speed boost for every ten collected. The balls will temporarily disappear after being collected, but will eventually respawn. The course also features several Dash Panels, which give the player a speed boost when passed over. The player will lose some colored balls if they hit the spikes or fan blades found along the course, which will cause their current total of colored balls to halve. Each fan has three blades, though the blades will disappear when they are hit. Item Boxes also appear along the course, which the player can collect to obtain an item. The items can be used by pressing , and have a number of effects:
After leaving the tunnel, the player can shake the Wii Remote up and down to accelerate for the final stretch of the race. The competitor that reaches the end of the course in the fastest time wins the event.
