The level begins after Donkey Kong forces himself out of a destroyed plane, which he has been thrown in to the island by the Snowmads. Back in the plane, the player can find an Red Balloon, as well as some TV's which display the logo of Donkey Kong Country Returns if pounded next to, exactly like in said game. Donkey Kong will first go down a running waterslide which leads him into a lake, introducing the ability to swim in the game. If he collects some of the bubbles coming from a diving helmet-like pipe, DK can refill his meter, which is a limit on the amount of time he can be underwater. After getting out of the lake, which contains Finleys, Donkey Kong will go through a beach area with Dozies, and Punchy Paddies. At a rock platform, a Tutorial Pig will tell the player how to pound, and if they do it where the Punchy Paddy was, it will reveal an underground area with several bananas. After that, there is a wooded-like area with a Venus Trap Platform, and more Dozies. Here, the Tutorial Pig will tell the player that they can flip down platforms tied by vines with ZL and ZR. After that, a large flying banana appears, giving the player a Puzzle Piece, followed by a checkpoint. The player must then use the pulling technique on a tree stump to open up a large platform area containing more Venus Trap Platforms and Punchy Paddies.
After collecting the fourth Puzzle Piece, the player will find a Barrel, which will bring Diddy Kong into the game and enable the multiplayer function. With Diddy Kong, his jetpack enables the duo to fly, which helps them cross a pit of thorny vines. Following that, the player can exit the area, falling into another water body like the first one, with Wild Wendells. Here, DK and Diddy can find an Extra Life Balloon on a platform above the surface, as well as Banana Coins and a letter. After swimming through the grass underwater, the Kongs will find get a chance to collect three Life Balloons in an amount of time. When they get past the beach area after the lake, there is a stump plug, similar to the one before, that the player must pull to reveal another pop-up jungle area, with Barrel Cannons leading them to another Puzzle Piece. Following more cannons, which at one point will contain a letter, DK and Diddy bounce through trees into a small beach area with another checkpoint. After going through the beach, which contains a falling Snowmad ship, Venus Trap Platforms, Fluffs, Waldoughs, and Tucks, as well as the "G" letter, the Kongs can blast to another island via a Barrel Cannon and end the level by hitting a Slot Machine.
