"Stop the falling barrel as close as you can to your Mii. It takes a true daredevil to excel at this minigame!"

Barrel Daredevil is a 4-player Minigame in Wii Party.


The players try to stop the barrel as close as they can from the red line.

The player who gets their barrel the closest wins.

Controls: To stop the barrels players must press A with good timing to stop the barrel closely.

Note: If a player gets hit by the barrel, they will get last place and it won't count as a stop. The number of meters will be shown as - - - if this happens.

Additional Note: Master Miis almost always wait until the barrel is too close to them. They also can reach 0m, so it is possible to tie with a Master Mii if you reach 0m. However, it is impossible to tie with other non-Master Miis since it is obvious that those who attempt to reach 0m always fail (getting hit by the barrel).


  • There is an unused 2-player mode of this minigame.
  • The Minigame is similar to Night Light Fright from Mario Party 5 and Study Fall from Mario Party DS in the ways listed below:
    • These Minigames are 4-player Minigames.
    • They involve pressing a button to stop.
    • They have a winner that stops the closest.
    • In the case of Night Light Fright, however, the moment when to stop is less predictable.
