Dead rising Balloon Man

Balloon Man is a Sandbox Mode challenge in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.[1]

The goal is to get to the balloon above the giant craps table as fast as you can.[2] This challenge introduces a path in Royal Flush Plaza that Frank may not have known about before. He can acquire the Ninja Mask in the room near the top.[3]


  • Quickstep and Repulse are very helpful for this challenge.
  • Additionally, the player may also park the Sports Car at the top of the stairs before starting the challenge and, once they reach the top of the stairs, simply drive to the phone booth to jump up to the balloon.
  • The Super Slicer's alternate attack will also work, both running up the stairs and cutting through the zombies on the second floor.


  • Gold (0:40)
  • Silver (0:50)
  • Bronze (1:30)


  • Gold: $12,000
  • Silver: $8,000
  • Bronze: $4,000
