"Press the button with perfect timing to skip across the water and reach the other side as quickly as possible. If you press the btton too late, it will slow you down."

Water Walkers is a 4-player minigame in Wii Party U.


The game starts outside the dojo where all four players jump onto the starting ground in ninja costumes, with a big river standing between them and the goal! When the game starts they jump into the river and then must jump off every time they are about to sink in again! Basically, they are jumping off the river! Perfect timing has a sparkly cartwheel, early or late timing and the Mii will falter but still survive and then bad timing will make the Mii sink! They must shake the Wii Remote to resurface and continue jumping. When players reach the goal, they're final jump will always have a perfect animation and they'll jump away after landing on the grass, leaving the others to go for 2nd and 3rd.


Hold the Wii Remote vertically. When you hit the water, press A with timing to jump off at the right moment. If you sink into the water, shake the Wii Remote to escape.

In Spot the Sneak, the sneak will always jump perfectly if they hold B.


  • Like most minigames, the CPU will instantly go quicker to the end when the human player or players finish.
  • If the player in last doesn't make it, they will fall into the water and sink.

    Frank sinking into the water + some added proof that it's Frank.
