The stage mostly consists of Red Girder and Blue Lift Rivets, grouped between platforms at different levels. Mini Peach starts at the bottom left corner of the course, while the other three Minis start at the top, facing a Capture Kong nearby. The enemy protects the Goal Door further to the left. To bypass the Capture Kong and rescue any Minis taken by it, the toys have to acquire the Hammers in the center of the stage, then ascend to the top floor where the enemy is located to stun it.

M Coin[edit]

The M Coin is found within the right part of the level, although the exact position differs greatly between the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U versions. Nevertheless, both versions require the player to use Blue Lifts and, if necessary, Red Girders to reach the coin.
