The mat is combined with the Wii Motion Controller to give an all over workout for users of the game. The game comprises 15 activities, with multi-player and time trial options. Activities include tricky and downright dangerous pastimes such as street luge, in-line skating, kite surfing, base jumping, acrobatic double dutch, BMX biking, skateboarding and rock climbing.
