Wii Fit Plus Training Plus Playthrough: Part 11 Big Top Juggling

Part 11 of our Wii Fit Plus Training Plus Playthrough has us clowning around at the circus with Big Top Juggling.  Again, I’ve played 4 times prior to recording this playthrough.  This activity, along with Rhythm Parade, just never appealed to me.  That said, it isn’t a bad activity, just not one of my favorites.  Let’s  take a look and then expand on what you see:

Wii Fit Plus Training Plus Playthrough: Part 11 Big Top Juggling

Big  Top Juggling 
To juggle you simply flick the Wiimote and Nunchuck upwards.  The trick is that you have to balance on a ball while juggling…the catch?  You control the ball’s motion, or stability, by shifting your weight right or left.  The game is divided between Beginner and Advanced. 
Somehow we managed to score a 905 in Beginner which was good for a 3-Star Professional Rank and our personal best.  This also burned 5 calories over 2 minutes and unlocked us Advanced (5 Balls).  Having unlocked Advanced we just went ahead and tackled it.  In our first ever playthrough of Advanced we scored 1,180 points which was good enough for an Amateur Ranking and 2-Stars.  Advanced will consume about 2 minutes and 6 calories.

I’ve almost come to the conclusion that you simply dodge the bombs and then the other Miis will eventually throw Balls 4 and 5.  I’ll find out for sure at some point and let you know.
I will likely play this one more thru the winter, particularly if we are ever snowed in etc.  I would like to 4-Star it, but just as with Rhythm Parade it is not high on the priority list with so many other options on Wii Fit Plus and the entire Wii library.  I’m sure some folks will really enjoy this, is just isn’t one of my personal favorites.
