Spotlight Swim is a 1-vs-3 minigame found in Mario Party 3.


Three players have to use the spotlight to spotlight the other player all together while the other has to avoid being caught by the three player's spotlights. The other player can also go underwater preventing being caught with the three spotlight but the player has to surface every once in a while to allow for breathing. If the player manages to avoid the three player's spotlights, a Lakitu comes with a ladder and picks them up, carrying them off, and they win. If the three players catch the solo player with all the spotlights together, the solo player has a cage dropped on them and the team wins.
