The main mechanics of the level are the large gear-like stone wheels that rotate clockwise towards the camera, the cogs of which can be used as platforms.
In the Time Attack mode of the game, a time of 1:12:00 is needed to get a gold medal, a time of 1:22:00 for silver, and a time of 1:38:00 for bronze.
Heading right, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong will find a stationary stone wheel. When jumped on, however, it will start to move. After jumping past the first one, the Kongs will find three already moving stone wheels, which they must jump along to reach the other side before the cogs sink into the lava. The Kongs must then avoid three Rentamaguma and will eventually come across more wheels, except the cogs on these ones are flat and can be jumped through. The other side of the wheels leads to some Tiki Goon enemies and eventually a big yellow button. Once pressed three times, two wheels in front of the Kongs will rotate in place to form platforms, while a third one will roll away, revealing a gap.
After pressing the button and reaching the first checkpoint, the Kongs must launch themselves from a Barrel Cannon to the platform of the third wheel that rolled away earlier (now connected to an even wider wheel). As soon as the Kongs land, the wheel will start to rotate slowly, in which case they must quickly head right while avoiding Rentamaguma. At the end, the Kongs will end up on another wheel with more Rentamaguma, except they must jump up to higher platforms as the wheel rotates into the lava. They should then head right and jump along smaller wheels to reach the next checkpoint.
Past the second checkpoint is another wide slow-moving stone wheel which the Kongs must quickly run through while avoiding Char-Chars and falling into the lava. At the end is another wheel where the Kongs must climb higher up as the platforms sink into the lava to reach the Slot Machine Barrel.
