Cannonball Fun is a 4-Player minigame in Mario Party 6. The name is a reference to Cannonball Run, the name of a few related movies.

The only difference between the day and night versions of this minigame is the decorations on the side of the arena; during the day, the decorations resemble suns, and at night, they are partially lit up to appear as moons.


The first player flies in their hovercraft around the arena and comes to a stop before the camera zooms to the angle seen in the minigame and the screen splits in four.


Players pilot hovercrafts around an arena, firing cannonballs at each other. Each hovercraft has a cannon on the left and right sides, and the cannons fire alternately. When a player hits an opponent, that player earns a point. When a player is hit, that player is stunned for a moment. The first player to obtain five points wins.
