Swinging with Sharks is an Item minigame found in Mario Party 3. Its name is a pun on the phrase "swimming with sharks."


The player on the swing must land on a barrel to get the item they desire, while Baby Bowser rides around on a Sushi. Timing is important when the player is going to jump onto a barrel; if the player misses, they get nothing. If the player runs out of time, they automatically jump into the water.
