Reckless Ride is the second level in Juicy Jungle, the fifth island of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and its Nintendo Switch port of the same name. It is the third level in the game to use the Rocket Barrel.
Once again, "Mine Menace" is utilized as background music throughout the Rocket Barrel segment, albeit this time with a more techno-inspired remix.
The Kongs land right next to the Rocket Barrel, which is ridden for most of the level. Starting the rocket, Donkey Kong will have to weave around some rolling berries and suspended fruit. The camera shifts to a perspective view as the player must continue dodging incoming fruit. Pengaccha 1-gō appears, stretching and spinning its claws and then launching Soaries at the rocket. The robot gets out of the way, but some other enemies appear, followed by Professor Chops and his checkpoint booth.
As the camera shifts back to its regular angle, the Kongs enter a building, where the Tucks and its machine return, trying to crush them with its claws again, but now launching giant Soaries, just before leaving as another checkpoint comes into play. The camera once again switches angles. The rocket enters a long corridor where fruit is chopped by sharp blades and spiky compactors. The robot reappears, breaking some poles, which tumble onto the way as obstacles. Leaving the building, the robot causes infinite amounts of fruit to flow through the narrow passage. After a few more attacks, the robot hits a wall, launching the Tucks away (it is then eaten by a Chompasaurus at the background). The Kongs fall off the Rocket Barrel onto a platform, where they can hit the Slot Machine Barrel to complete the level.
