Rainbow Run is an unlockable 1-vs-3 minigame found in Mario Party 2. To get this minigame, the player must buy 50 minigames from Woody. Although it has a different setting, this minigame is identical in concept to Tightrope Treachery from the first Mario Party. Unlike in Tightrope Treachery, team players' clouds automatically move instead of having players control them.


The solo player on the narrow rainbow must get to the goal line, while three players on the clouds attempt to knock the rainbow runner off with cannonballs. If the solo player gets to the goal, that player wins, but if either the team of three knocks the rainbow runner down or time runs out, the team wins.

This minigame does not appear in the Mini-Game Coaster, along with Dungeon Dash.
