The April Fool's Prank was a Special Mission from March to April 2015 in Despicable Me: Minion Rush. By completing collections of chili peppers, piñatas, and fireworks; Players could win prizes, including the Mariachi Minion, perks, prize pods, and tokens. The general structure was similar to the Jelly Lab, with multiple stages and intermediate stages with more advanced prizes. Every stage was played in Eduardo's House, a new area created especially for the contest with various wedding-related decorations and obstacles. The April Fool's Prank added the BMX Bike as a special item Finding it led to a mini-game in the desert, where the collection items could be gathered faster than during the regular game.
- The items appear relatively frequently in the early stages, but less frequently in the later stages. BMX bikes are awarded daily and as prizes for intermediate stages, or they can be purchased with tokens. The optimal approach is to save all the bikes for the last collection, and to use them with a costume that extends the mini-game time such as the Lucy Minion or Vampire Minion. Once all of the items needed for a particular stage have been collected, no additional items will appear, so it's best to use the skateboards when there are still plenty of items left to be collected.
