Rubber Ducky Rodeo is a 1-vs.-3 minigame in Mario Party DS. It takes place in a giant pool of water.


One player controls a large rubber ducky, while the other three contestants try to maintain their balance on smaller duckies attached to the larger duck in a row. The solo player wins if all three team players fall off their ducks, while the team players win if any of them sustain their balance until time is up.


The winning side is shown celebrating while standing on a rubber ring with a large rubber duck with a crown and two smaller ducks near the ring.
