Screech's Sprint is the first stage of the world The Flying Krock of the Crocodile Isle, as well as the forty-first stage overall in the game Donkey Kong Country 2 and the fortieth stage overall in game Donkey Kong Land 2. In both games, it is preceded by Stronghold Showdown and followed by K. Rool Duel.


This stage has a lot of spiky thorns and Zingers as obstacles. Halfway throughout it, after the Kongs turning into Squawks the Parrot, the Animal Buddy must race against another bird, Screech. In order to clear the stage, the player must win the race.


The first part of the stage involves dodging the Cat o' nine tails and some Klingers. When going to the left after the first shaft, there is a canon hidden above, going to it completes the bonus stage of this level. After getting past the animal barrel, you'll find Screech, and you must race him to the end, otherwise you will die.

Bonus Rooms[]

  • "Find the Coin!": both Kongs must be present to reach this Bonus Room. After climbing a vine over many precariously positioned Mini-Neckies, the player should barely notice a Kannonball on a high ledge. They must use the "Team-Up" move to throw the secondary character and reach the ledge. The player must grab the ball, move towards right, and throw it into the Kannon. Inside the room, the player must use Dixie Kong to progress. The player must glide down by using her Helicopter Spin move, and using the occasional roll-jumps to clear some bramble pits.

DK Coin[]

The DK Coin can be found about halfway through the race course against Screech, inside some brambles. The player must decide if it is worth going around for it or winning the race.



  • In the Super Family Computer/Super Nintendo Entertainment System version of the game Donkey Kong Country 2, there is a glitch which allows the player to circumvent the race completely by flying over Screech's head.
  • In the Game Boy Advance version of the game Donkey Kong Country 2, there is also a feature that tracks the player's best time during the race against Screech.
  • The stage in the SFC/SNES version of the game Donkey Kong Country 2 has a unique orange and purple color scheme, whereas in the GBA version, the stage has more red tints over the standard green brambles.
