This article is about Mario Party minigame.You may be looking for the similarly titled minigame in Mario Party-e, Ballooon Burst!.

Balloon Burst, (called クッパふうせん Kuppa Fūsen in Japan), is a 4 player minigame appearing in the first Mario Party and a 2 vs. 2 in Mario Party 2.                                       .

This minigame is also featured as one of the possible ones in Mario Party on the Bowser Space. Whichever three lose have a range from ten to fifty of their coins lost. This minigame can also be purchased from the Mini-game House for 400 coins.


In this minigame, the player (or his/her teammate depending on the game) all have a Bowser balloon on which they must pump up quickly until popping their Bowser balloon. Their pumps may turn red, meaning all four (or teams) must be on hiatus for a moment and then return to pumping their Bowser balloons. This must be done in a thirty second time limit.
