Funky's Flights II, also referred to as simply Funky's Flights, is an air travel service operated by Funky Kong in both Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Land 2, the latter naming it Funky's Flights. It is the direct successor of Funky's Flights from Donkey Kong Country, but with a Roman numeral (II) added at the end.
Funky's Flights II takes place on a giant surfboard. There is a wooden shack in the corner with antennas on its roof and a few objects lying outside of it, such as a tire and a beach ball. The Jumbo Barrel is in the background, toppled over behind the "FUNKY flights" sign. Funky's surfboard from Donkey Kong Country is also lying on top of the shack. To reflect how Funky's Flights II takes place on a surfboard, the screen slowly moves up and down. For the Game Boy Advance version, Funky's Flights II has a simpler design, and Funky is on the right side instead of the left. The redesign makes it more evident that Funky's Flights II takes place on a giant surfboard. The screen no longer moves up and down, although there are fast-moving clouds in the background. Despite the screen no longer moving, the world map icon for Funky's Flights II, which is a light green surfboard with a palm tree and a shack, slowly moves up and down.
In Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, Funky operates a Funky's Flights II in every world except the Lost World. At Funky's Flights II, Funky allows for Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong to rent the Biplane Barrel as a safer for quickly traveling between already visited worlds from the Crocodile Isle map than to defeat the same boss again. In each world, Funky charges two Banana Coins at first, but Funky's Flights II then subsequently becomes free for that world, an inverse of Wrinkly saving the game progress at a world's Kong Kollege for free the first time and then subsequently charging the Kongs in that world. Funky's Flights II has the exact same purpose in Donkey Kong Land 2.
In the Game Boy Advance version, Funky's Flights II received a lot of changes. Funky no longer offers flight services but instead hosts a unique Funky's Flights mission in each world, accessible from a Golden Barrel. The Kongs can no longer exit a world by completing a boss rematch, which were converted into time attack challenges hosted by Swanky Kong. Diddy and Dixie's only option to access other worlds is by selecting the option Gyrocopter from the menu. However, the option is unlockable, because Funky wants Diddy and Dixie to complete the Aerial Loop mission in Gangplank Galleon to prove themselves capable of piloting the Gyrocopter.
