|Appears in||Mario Party 8|
|Music track||Friendly Competition|
A train track with the players' trains and balloons is shown. Each player points at a train with their cursor, reversing its direction. The game then starts.
The players have to tap their trains to reverse the direction they go so that they do not pop their colored balloons. Each player has three trains and five balloons to watch. If a train gets near a balloon, its siren goes off. A train stops moving once it pops a balloon, but it starts moving again after five seconds. A burst balloon comes back after 10 seconds. A player cannot pop their opponent's balloons, as the player must pop their own first. Although the trains move at different speeds, they move faster the longer they avoid the balloons. The first player to pop three of their balloons loses. It is possible for the minigame to end in a tie.
The winner does their victory pose while the loser does their losing pose. The screen then cuts to the winner's train, which is traveling around the track. If the minigame ends in a tie, both players do their losing poses.

- Rules – "Keep your trains from hitting your balloons. Point-select your trains to reverse their direction."
- Hint – "When a train's light comes on, it means that the train is approaching a balloon. Reverse its direction fast!"
