Razor Ridge in the Game Boy Advance remake

Razor Ridge is the sixth world of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!.

Razor Ridge is in a mountain area located near a large fissure and filled with whirling machinery. Due to the fissure, the only way to travel between areas is through the use of a chairlift. Razor Ridge has many caves and vast areas of cliffs. At the base of the cliffs are cesspools with pitch-black water, created from floodwater runoff.[1]

The two chairlifts are operated by the Brothers Bear twins, Benny and Björn respectively. Benny runs his chairlift near the start, and the Kongs must use it to access the other half of the world. Björn operates his chairlifts on the other side of the ridge. When Björn's Chairlifts is fixed, the Kongs can ride to go up to the Banana Bird Cave, Clifftop Cache.

The world boss is Barbos, whose area is in the center-right of the world map in a large body of water. In the Game Boy Advance version, the world boss was changed to Kroctopus, and Barbos was relocated to Pacifica.
