"Try to control your jump so you land at exactly 0 seconds. The player closest to 0 seconds wins the game! The platform height changes everytime."

Safe Landings is a 4-player minigame in Wii Party U.


Players are standing on an elevated trapdoor with a button next to them and another trapdoor with a timer beneath them. The timer is counting down from 5 seconds. Everyone must press their button to open their trapdoor at the right time to try and land on the lower trapdoor as late as possible, meaning a perfect score is 0 seconds. However, players cannot wait around, as if the timer goes below 0 seconds, the lower trapdoor will open, and their Mii will fall down into the underground and lose. The player that lands on the lower trapdoor the latest without falling through is the winner!

If a player feels that they timed their button press too soon, they can shake the Wii Remote to flap their arms and fly in the air for a bit before falling again. The height of the upper trapdoor players start on changes every time to avoid players getting a perfect score every time.

Compare this picture with the one from the infobox for evidence.

If a player gets a perfect score of 0 seconds or close (e.g 0.10), their Mii's win animation will be different than when they win without a perfect score.


Holding the Wii Remote vertically, press A to open the upper trapdoor and start falling. Shake the Wii Remote to flap your arms and fly.


  • This minigame plays similar to Barrel Daredevil from Wii Party, where you have to time the press of the A button to do better than the others.
  • It is possible for all players to get a tie in this minigame, however it is very rare.
