Big Top Drop is a 1 vs. 3 minigame in Mario Party 5.


In this minigame, the solo player is on a swing and their objective is to drop balls on the three players who are standing on a tightrope. The solo player has the ability to drop balls high and low in attempt to throw off the three players. The three players, in turn, must avoid being hit by the balls. They are able to walk left and right on the tightrope and even jump as means to escape being hit. This minigame can be tricky for the three players as the single player can easily corner all of them together and take them out at once. The three players best strategy is to spread apart as only one of them needs to be remaining on the tightrope. The player that achieves their respective goal wins.
