Ropey Rumpus is the thirtieth level in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! It is also the fifth and final area of Razor Ridge.
During this level, the heroes will scale a large mountain with the assistance of long tightropes. These horizontal and vertical tightropes can be found all over the level, and the Kongs will even climb on them more than they move on land. Danger still lurks in the air, however, as the common foes, Buzzes, appear all around the tightropes, swarming in many different patterns to faze the monkeys. Touching the wasps can damage the leading monkey, who can only be recovered with a DK Barrel. Though not much of a help, Parry the Parallel Bird appears in this cliff level, and it will be parallel to the Kongs at all times. If they can get the bird past the No Animal Sign without losing it, they will find a special prize.
The level begins with a small tunnel leading to a long tightrope. Climbing across this rope, the heroes will avoiding some Buzzes and move along some small platforms to walk through a small tunnel again. They will grab onto another tightrope after that and climb across to find more Buzzes. Once they dodge the pests, they will go through another tunnel to find a set of ropes to help them reach a higher part of the mountain. As they hop up each rope, they will dodge many red and green Buzzes. Heading west into another tunnel, the group will find the letter K and travel across the next tightrope. The tightrope will lead them over a very large abyss, though it will also be surrounded by restless Buzzes, swarming all around. Soon, the Kongs will hop up a few small tightropes and make a 180 degree turn to a higher area. As they climb up the tightropes in this direction, they will maneuver over and under several more Buzzes until they find another area with many tightropes, all parallel to each other. Getting up these ropes without being disturbed by the Buzzes in the center of them, the heroes will make their way to the Star Barrel.
About halfway into the level, the apes will clamber between some more Buzzes and enter another area full of parallel tightropes. Dodging the enemies flying quickly around the area, the monkeys should climb up all the ropes and begin to travel west again on a longer tightrope. They will jump over more Buzzes on the way and soon find the letter N on solid ground. Heading through a small tunnel, they will hop up another set of parallel ropes and make it to a higher area of the mountain. There, they will meet Parry the Parallel Bird and move across a long, strait path of tightropes. Climbing along the tightropes, they will dodge many more Buzzes, most of them moving in circular motions, until they find the letter G, as well as the No Animal Sign, which will turn Parry into a Bonus Barrel if it survived the journey. Just a little farther from there, Dixie and Kiddy will find a flagpole. If they raise its flag, the level will end.
