Creepy Caverns is the thirty-second level in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! It is also the second area of KAOS Kore. In the game's Game Boy Advance remake, it is instead the thirty-eighth level of the game, due to the addition of Pacifica.
This cavern level features a new obstacle not found anywhere else. These rare obstacles are the tricky Ghost Barrels, which appear throughout almost all of the level to aid the group in reaching the goal. When using these barrels, however, the Kongs should be very careful, as they can appear and disappear suddenly, causing the monkeys to possibly fall into a trap. Some Ghost Barrels can even blast the heroes into Buzzes. Though the level can be tough at times, Squitter the Spider is hidden just after the Star Barrel, and he can help the Kongs defeat enemies with his web projectiles. Krumples, Knockas and a single Booty Bird can also be found here to hinder the monkeys' progress.
When the level begins, the heroes travel through the lowest part of the caverns, avoiding a few types of enemies, such as Krumples. Soon, they find a Ghost Barrel that fires them to a higher area. In this area, the Kongs move down some stair-like platforms to reach a small set of barrels. The barrels fire the Kongs into a Ghost Barrel, which shoots them into the next floor. There, they head west and avoid more enemies. Shortly after, the animals drop into a small gap and jump over a red Buzz to land in a tricky Ghost Barrel. The barrel blasts them to another barrel, which then fires them into the next area. At this point, the group should make their way into another Ghost Barrel and shoot upwards. The barrel shoots them, as before, into a second barrel, that takes them to the next area. In this area, the monkeys move under a Buzz, trying not to touch the appearing and disappearing Ghost Barrel under it. Traveling a little farther takes the heroes to a raised platform with the Star Barrel.
About halfway into the level, the Kongs pass some more enemies and jump over a lone Buzz, without bumping into the nearby Ghost Barrel. They soon get in a Barrel Cannon that aims to another Ghost Barrel. Once this Ghost Barrel is aimed correctly, they should shoot into it and reach the next area. There, they avoid more enemies and soon find the letter N. If they continue on, they pass a few Knockas and make their way to a small gap. Falling into this, the apes avoid some Krumples and jump over a red Buzz again to land in a Ghost Barrel. Without correct time, the Kongs hit into the Buzz under the Ghost Barrel. Once this barrel leads them to a higher area, Kiddy Kong and Dixie Kong must travel to another Ghost Barrel. When the barrel aims itself correctly, they should get in it and shoot to the top floor of the level. Moving under a Buzz and heading east over the rocky pathway, they use a Ghost Barrel to shoot onto a high ledge. On the ledge, they head over and under some red Buzzes. Nearby Ghost Barrels appear suddenly throughout this area to blast the heroes into these Buzzes. Once all the wasps are past, the apes need to roll into a small gap and jump upwards as they fall to land near a flagpole. If they raise the pole's flag, the level ends.
