The level introduces Boo Barrels, and the Kongs must enter them to blast up to higher areas. About halfway through the level, Dixie and Kiddy can transform into Squitter the Spider from his Animal Barrel. There are two No Animal Signs, one on the normal path another high above the first one. The first No Animal Sign is only reachable by using Squitter's web platforms, and the second No Animal Sign's area is where the Koin is.
From the start of the level, the heroes must head east and defeat some enemies. Soon, they will come up to a Booster Barrel. It will lead them to a higher area, where the monkeys must begin to travel west. When they see the second Boo Barrel, they should wait until it aims upwards and then shoot up to an even higher area with it. There, the heroes must start to head west again. They will come up to some Rekoils, a Krumple, a Krimp, and a Bristle until they find a gap with an Animal Barrel in it. The monkeys should get into the barrel and turn into Squitter. From there, the transformed monkeys, now as Squitter, must continue east, beating many Buzzes with webs. Squitter will soon find a barrel, which he should jump into and get to a lower part of the level. There, he will suddenly be forced in the Star Barrel.
Halfway the spider will need to start going west again and, as before, defeat several different kinds of enemies. At some point, the spider will find himself near a No Animal Sign. When this is passed, he will turn into the Kongs again. From there, the group must drop down a ledge and walk more westward. Soon, they will find a barrel. If they jump into it, they will be blasted to an even lower section of Stalagmite Frights. Down there, the heroes must journey to the east. However, this trip is not as easy as the trials that were endured before. This time, the monkeys must watch out for the appearing and disappearing Boo Barrels. If the monkeys are caught in them, they will be shot into a Buzz. Therefore, they should be extra careful in this area. After this part is passed, Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong must shoot up a Boo Barrel to get up a ledge. Up on this ledge, they will come up to an area filled with many Buzzes around a Boo Barrel. When this barrel is aiming to the lower-right corner of the screen, the monkeys must quickly jump into it and continue through the level. After going east and defeating many enemies, the Kongs find the Level Flag, guarded by a Kuchuka. The Kongs must avoid the enemy to activate the Level Flag.
