Zoom Room is a Bowser Jr. minigame in Mario Party 9. The gameplay of this minigame is fairly similar to that of Flash and Dash from Mario Party DS and Team Treasure Trek from Mario Party 4.


There is an aerial shot of the maze. The camera zooms in on Bowser Jr., who does a taunting dance and laughs. The camera then shifts back to the players.


The pair must try to catch Bowser Jr. before time runs out. Players run around the maze, chasing Bowser Jr., who sweats when a player gets close to him. Bowser Jr. always runs faster than the players, so it is impossible for just one player to catch him. Therefore, the two players must cooperate in order to corner him.

Players can refer to the mini-map in the center of the screen, though it shows only characters, not walls. The best chance of catching Bowser Jr. is when the players run at him from opposite sides when he is in a corner.

If the players fail to catch Bowser Jr. within 30 seconds, Bowser Jr. is victorious.


If the players catch Bowser Jr., they will kick him, and he will fall down with stars going around his head. The players then strike victory poses.
