Cross! Balance Race.png

Cross! Balance Race is a minigame that appears in the Party Mode of Sonic and the Secret Rings.


Hold the Wii Remote horizontally and tilt it to make the character lean left or right.


The players have to cross a tight rope as fast as they can while balancing a pot on their heads. If the pot starts to fall off, they must lean to the right or left to stop it. Leaning to stop the pot from falling off will make them go slower however. If the pot falls off the player's head they will have to stop for several seconds while the pot is put back on their head. At several points throughout the race, gusts of strong wind will blow, and the players will have to be extra careful that their pot doesn't get blown off. The player to reach the end of the tightrope first wins.
