<< Directory of levels >>

Derailed Express is a secret level in Rocking Range in Wario Land: Shake It!. It can be unlocked after Wario finds the Secret Map in Neon City.


Derailed Express is another level that takes place on a train dashing in a sunset desert. Unlike Wreck Train, the train never stops, and neither does the strong wind. This level has the shortest time limit of 2:00:00 in the game. In the beginning, Wario has to dash and jump over the spikes as the wind comes forth. Inside the train, fire burners from Wreck Train reappear and a Boomdinero is guarding the ball and the exit. As Wario comes outside, strong wind blows again and more Boomdineros are waiting to attack him. The golden enemy, a Bandinero, is just in this section. In the next carriage, more fire burners come out as the only platforms for Wario to stand on and proceed. The manhole cover from Wreck Train also requires Wario to perform a Ground Pound to put it down. It springs up faster, forbidding Wario to go back. In the face of 16 wooden blocks, Wario needs to create a staircase to reach the tunnel for the hidden treasure. Afterwards, there is a long ladder along with several fire burners, ready to burn Wario down. He climbs up to the train roof and approaches the train head where a Boomdinero guards the entrance. Once Wario finds the caged Merfle inside the train head, he will have to use the nearby Blast-O-Cannon and seize the right timing to shoot himself up lest he may get burned from fire burners. At the top of the train head, a Max Fastosity Dasherator helps Wario reach his maximum speed and escape the train from above before time runs out.
