Slow Glide (known as Balloon Glider in PAL Regions) is a General minigame from Mario Party: Island Tour. The minigame's name, like in Snow Ride, is a pun on a song, "Slow Ride".

Introduction[edit]

The four players glide through the air and pop balloons. The game starts.

Gameplay[edit]

This minigame has four players on gliders, flying through the air and popping balloons that are the same color of their glider. Each balloon is worth 1 point, but sometimes yellow balloons with a 3 on them appear, moving up and down, that give the player 3 points. Whoever has the most points at the end of the minigame wins.

Controls[edit]

  • Tilt motion control - Steer

In-game text[edit]

  • RulesNA - "Aim for the balloons, and pop as many as you can. If the gameplay becomes unstable, place the system on a flat surface to recalibrate. You can also press down on +Control Pad at any time to reset the sensor position to normal."

  • RulesPAL - "Take to the air and pop as many balloons as you can.
    Note: Press down on +Control Pad to recalibrate the gyro sensor. If the in-game movements appear to be stilted, place the system somewhere stable and keep it still for a short time."
