Creepy Castle is the seventh level of Donkey Kong 64. It is a haunted castle high atop K. Rool's warship. The Kongs must have at least 80 Golden Bananas for B. Locker to allow them to enter the level.
The Kongs can only enter this level from its lobby from using a large Barrel Cannon near K. Lumsy's Prison. Although Creepy Castle is said to be located on K. Rool's Crocodile Isle, it also appears to be floating above ground. If the active Kong falls off the location, they respawn back from the beginning portal. The level takes place both inside and outside of the old, abandoned castle.
The outside involves a high climb around the tall castle. Like typical haunted areas, a continuous thunderstorm takes place in the area. Many of the enemies featured are undead, such as Bones and Ghosts, and is inhabited by Bats. The castle interior features haunted corridors, mostly-empty rooms, and haunted catacombs on the lowest floor.
Additionally, this level is the first to have the red Kong Switches, which can only be activated from using the Super Duper Simian Slam move learned from Cranky Kong. In this level, the red switches are usually used for opening entrances to various parts of the castle.
Creepy Castle is divided into different areas both within and outside of the castle. The outside mostly involves the Kongs climbing up the location. There are a few outside locations with a hidden Golden Banana, including a large tree and a greenhouse.
The castle interior and crypt are covered in fog (similar to Angry Aztec's sandstorm mist). A loud moaning and a variety of haunted noises can be heard inside the area. The toxic waste pools featured in the level's lobby also appear in the dungeon and mausoleum. A number of rooms appear in the castle including: a museum with unknown statues, a barn and alter behind glass walls, a ball room with tile-decorated flooring, a library with a haunted passageway between bookshelves, and an empty room at the very top featuring a fan blowing upward.
