Wingin' It is a 2-vs.-2 minigame in Mario Party 7. Its name comes from the expression "winging it," which is when someone reacts to things as they happen and improvise, rather than planning things through in advance.


Two players jump into the flying Koopa machine. The screen splits into two to show the other team.


In this minigame, both teams of players are in large Colossal Koopa Paratroopa-like aircraft, and they need to rapidly tap the A Button button to flap the Koopas' wings to get to the top of a building. As the teams fly up, Koopa Troopas, Shy Guys, and Goombas inside will open the windows to wave at the teams, while a Piranha Plant will pop out of the chimney. The team that ascends higher after ten seconds wins the minigame. For some reason, should both teams get the same distance, the red team always wins.


  • A Button – Tap repeatedly to flap

In-game text[edit]
