Shock, Drop or Roll is a 1-vs-3 minigame in Mario Party 2. Its name is a pun on a well-known piece of advice about what to do if one's clothes catch on fire: "stop, drop, and roll."


The minigame involves one player controlling a turbine by turning it either left or right, trying to make the other players fall off. The others must try to stay on the turbine and not get shocked by falling off. The solo player wins if they manage to get all three opponents off the turbine. The team players win if at least one of them survives for the entire 30 seconds.

In the Mini-Game Coaster, the human player is always part of the team of three. The human player must survive the minigame until time runs out to win.
