Treacherous Tightrope is a 4-Player minigame that appears in Mario Party 8.

Introduction[edit]

The camera shows the tightropes and characters from below, moving upwards. The wind blows the tightrope and the players, causing them to almost lose their balance. The minigame starts when the camera is set behind the characters.

Gameplay[edit]

The player uses the Wii Remote like a balancing pole as their character walks across a tightrope.

The Wii Remote must be tilted forward so that the character walks. Tilting it to the sides can destabilize them and make them fall. The wind will frequently blow left or right, which requires the players to stop moving and instead keep their balance by tilting the other way.

The first player to make it to the other side wins the game. If all of the players lost their balance and fell off the tightrope, the minigame ends in a tie.

Ending[edit]

The winner jumps off the tightrope onto a rock and strikes a pose as the remaining players lose their balance and fall down into the canyon.

In-game text[edit]

  • Rules"Cross the tightrope! Use the balancing pole, especially when the wind blows."
  • Hint"Move forward only when the wind dies down. When it blows, stop walking and focus on keeping your balance!"
