Cosmic Slalom is a Duel minigame in Mario Party 8.


The first player appears, sitting inside a hovercraft inside a large tube. The screen splits to reveal the other player sitting inside their hovercraft, and the minigame begins.


The goal of the minigame is to race through the slalom course racing tube as quickly as possible. The players must watch out for electric fences, which cause them to spin out and waste time. To temporarily pick up speed, the player can use a speed boost, which also allows them to quickly blast right through the fences with no effect. However, the speed boost can be used only a total of three times. Whoever reaches the finish first wins.


The winning player performs their victory pose inside their hovercraft and then jets away out of sight. The losing player is not shown, unless they were close to the winning player when the minigame ended.
