Great Bars of Fire is a general minigame from Mario Party: Island Tour. Its name comes from the song recorded by Jerry Lee Lewis, "Great Balls of Fire", which was previously featured in two episodes of the Mario cartoons: "The Fire of Hercufleas" and "Princess Toadstool for President", as well as mentioned in "A Toadally Magical Adventure".


The player ducks under a Fire Bar and then jumps over the other.
