The player must have at least 22 Golden Balloons to race on Haunted Woods, and 37 for its Silver Coin Challenge. The stage's default vehicle is Cars, but racers can use Hovercrafts after completing the course twice or via Time Trials.
The course immediately has a right turn that leads into a medieval village, and a fountain. There are two paths around the fountain, but they both intersect with one another quickly. The track then leads into a long passageway and a castle gate, before heading into the woods. As the driver enters the woods, they are confronted with ghostly Wizpig heads, but the track soon loops around to a bridge leading back into the castle and then the finish line.
Silver Coin locations
Like the other levels of Diddy Kong Racing and Diddy Kong Racing DS, Boulder Canyon is filled with eight coins, scattered all around the area. However, the coins only appear once the player has beaten the world's boss at least once.
