Rope a Slope (known as Abseiling Antics in Europe and Australia) is a General minigame found in Mario Party: Island Tour. The name is a pun on the boxing technique "rope-a-dope". It shares its theme with Mad Ladders and Diamond-a-Dozen.

Introduction[edit]

The four players are running down the side of a cliff, and they jump over a small tree in the side. The minigame then begins.

Gameplay[edit]

The players race down the wall to the bottom of the ground avoiding obstacles along the way. If the player hits an obstacle, they will be held up for a moment before they can continue on. The player that reaches the bottom first wins.

Controls[edit]

  • A Button - Jump
