Wii Party U


4 Player


"Zoom in space as a flying hero! But you better choose the right path, or you'll get clobbered by a meteor and lose a heart. The player with the most hearts remaining at the end of the game is the winner."

Run to the Sun is a 4-player minigame in Wii Party U.


All players dash and start flying to the sun.


With three hearts, players fly through space and must choose between two paths. One path will have obstacles such as asteroids and space crystals that will batter players who pick the wrong path. The player must tilt the Wii Remote up, down, left and right for them to pick a path. If a player loses all three of their hearts, then they are out.

The minigame has a total of 5 rounds. At the end of all of them, the minigame ends, and the players who have the most hearts win.

Gameplay (Spot The Sneak)

In Spot the Sneak, the Sneak's Wii Remote will rumble if they choose the wrong course.


The players dash once again and fly off screen. Those who got eliminated will fly in a weak and slow type of way.


  • This minigame, along with Hide-and-Go-Beak, Lucky Launch and Risky Railway are based on luck. No matter which space side the player or CPU picks, the winner(s) will always be luck dependant.
  • The name is a play on the saying "Run in the Sun".
