Great Bars of Fire is a general minigame from Mario Party: Island Tour. Its name comes from the song recorded by Jerry Lee Lewis, "Great Balls of Fire", which was previously featured in two episodes of the Mario cartoons: "The Fire of Hercufleas" and "Princess Toadstool for President", as well as mentioned in "A Toadally Magical Adventure".


The player ducks under a Fire Bar and then jumps over the other.


The players are around two Fire Bars. Their objective is to survive the longest by ducking under the higher bar and jumping over the lower one not to be burned. Each character has three health pieces. The Fire Bars occasionally change speed as the time progresses, making it harder to avoid them. If a player is hit by a Fire Bar, they lose a heart, and if a player loses all three hearts, they are eliminated. The last player standing wins the minigame.
