The game involves the players fueling their rockets using pumping machines. An energy meter is displayed on the screen, and is split into three sections. When the pointer is in the first section, the players must press as fast as they can. When the pointer gets to the second section, must be pressed. When the pointer reaches the last section, the players must shake the until the pointer arrives at the end.
The players enter their rockets, and they head for space. There are three phases where the rocket stops and has one of its stages broken off, so it is dependent on how well the players did per button mash session. The player who wins the minigame is launched highest overall. The background music gets to an outer space mix as the players reach space. Occasionally, a UFO is seen flying as the minigame is about to end.
