Treacherous Tightrope is a 4-Player minigame that appears in Mario Party 8.
The camera shows the tightropes and characters from below, moving upwards. The wind blows the tightropes and the players, causing them to almost lose their balance. The minigame starts when the camera is set behind the characters.
The player uses like a balancing pole as their character walks across a tightrope. must be tilted forward so that the character walks. Tilting it to the sides can destabilize them and make them fall. The wind frequently blows left or right, requiring 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 minigame. If all of the players lose their balance and fall off their tightropes, the minigame ends in a tie.
The winner jumps off their tightrope onto a rock and strikes a victory pose, while any remaining players instantly lose their balance and fall down into the canyon.
