This mill seems to be powered by tides rather than currents, as its wooden wheel is driven by the waters of the northern sea. Like in Total Rekoil, Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong must thread their way through the various stories, defeating Kobbles, Sneeks and Re-Koils. The tiny hedgehogs known as Bristles are introduced in this level to also hinder in the Kongs' progress. To cross the mill, the monkeys must climb up ropes while dodging Buzzes, as well as using the numerous lift platforms. After completing the level, Dixie and Kiddy venture into the northern sea to confront Barbos, the giant Lurchin.
In the Time Attack mode, unlocked after defeating Baron K. Roolenstein in the Lost World, Liftshaft Lottery appears again to represent "Mill" levels. It must be completed in less than one minute and 30 seconds. It is recommended to attack the rows of enemies with frontal attacks, as a successful hit will give the Kongs a short acceleration.
When the level begins, the heroes find themselves walking along a long pathway through the mill, grabbing the letter K and defeating many enemies, including Sneeks. At the end of the pathway, they can see an elevator lift to ride up. It takes them to the next floor, where they travel west and watch out for more foes. If they manage to make it to the end of this area, they can ride up another two lifts and jump to the right on the third floor. Jumping into the above Barrel Cannon from there will take them through the letter O and on to another elevator. This platform guides them to the fourth floor, where they head east again and climb up a nearby rope. The rope takes them into an area full of several other vertical ropes. Hopping to each one carefully, they eventually get to the next area, where they find a Star Barrel.
About halfway into the level, the group ride down a nearby elevator to reach a lower floor and avoid more enemies, such as Kobbles. Soon, they see an elevator that helps them reach another lift. This lift takes them to the next floor, where they journey on to the west and find the letter N. Moving on, they climb up some ledges and head under a boardwalk to find the letter G. If they continue east from there, they pass some enemies and soon find a gap. Jumping into it, they land near a flagpole. Touching the flagpole ends the level.
