Slow Glide (Balloon Glider in British English) is a General minigame from Mario Party: Island Tour. The American English name, like in Snow Ride, is a pun on a song, "Slow Ride".


The four players glide through the air and pop balloons. The game starts.


This minigame has four players on gliders, flying through the air and popping balloons that are the same color of their glider. Each balloon is worth 1 point, but sometimes yellow balloons with a 3 on them appear, moving up and down, that give the player 3 points. Whoever has the most points at the end of the minigame wins.
