Lap Happy is a minigame in Wii Party U. The name is a pun on the term "Slap happy".


All players must complete a lap around the pool as fast as possible. It is possible to get a quick start by pressing the 2 button just before the minigame begins.

  • For the first lap, players must press the 1 and 2 buttons alternatively to swim forward.
  • On the second lap, players must rotate the d-pad in a counterclockwise direction.
  • On the final lap, players must move the Wii Remote in a circular motion.

In Spot the Sneak, the Sneak uses the B button to swim as fast as they can.


  • This minigame is known for it's difficulty, even on the lowest difficulties, as the mission requires the player to press the buttons quickly, which can be confusing!
