|Appears in||Mario Party 6|
The difference between day and night is in how the balloon pops. Bubbles come out of the balloon in the daytime, and stars come out of the balloon at nighttime.
The introduction shows the team and the solo player each inflating their balloon slightly.
Players attempt to inflate their balloons to the point where they pop. The group players work together to pop their balloon by ground-pounding their pumps by pressing mid-jump, while the solo player tries to pop their own balloon by repeatedly pressing to hammer on their pump. The group players can pump more air in their balloon if they ground-pound from the highest point of their jump. The side that pops its balloon first wins. If neither side pops their balloon in five minutes, the minigame ends in a tie.
