Levitation Station is the first level of Secret Seclusion in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and its Nintendo Switch port.

During the course of the level, the path is formed by floating platforms that disassemble and reassemble in various ways, similarly to a jigsaw puzzle. Blocks that rise up and levitate for a short time are also encountered, though some of them are covered in spikes and should be avoided.


The level begins immediately with a Barrel Cannon, followed by some rising and falling platforms. A segment with disassembling and reassembling platforms appears, along with a few Hootzes. More rising and falling platforms appear afterwards, followed by a segment with Barrel Cannons, where the Kongs are supposed to blast between the "teeth" of a dragon-resembling tunnel. Carried by Blast Barrels, the Kongs collapse a wall of stone blocks, causing them to fall into the nearby shaft. Here, they would have to ride the falling platforms, jumping from one to another until a Barrel Cannon appears. A spiked block will crush the cannon shortly afterwards, damaging the Kongs if they wait for too long inside it. The Barrel Cannon launches the primates on a platform just as it assembles. More disassembling and reassembling platforms follow, and the Kongs must bounce on the Hootzes to proceed. After one more Blast Barrel, the Kongs must navigate a set of rising and falling platforms while avoiding spiked platforms to reach the Slot Machine Barrel.

Puzzle Pieces[edit]

Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong jump on a series of falling blocks. Collecting all Banana Coins during this segment will reveal the Puzzle Piece.
  1. In the very first segment of rising and falling platforms, the Kongs must jump below the third platform to obtain the Puzzle Piece.
  2. In the first segment with disassembling and reassembling platforms, the Kongs must stick to the top path and jump off of a Hootz to obtain the Puzzle Piece.
  3. Immediately after the second Puzzle Piece, there are two rings of bananas surrounding platforms. The Kongs must collect all bananas in both rings to obtain the Puzzle Piece.
  4. During the segment with rapidly falling platforms, the Kongs must collect all ascending Banana Coins that pass by to obtain the Puzzle Piece.
