Shaol Atoll is the second secret stage in Sea Breeze Cove from Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.


This stage is different from the others and may be inspired by The Legend of Zelda as you must go through a maze to collect different keys. In fact, the final key looks strangely alike to a Boss Key.


The correct path (including Puzzle Pieces and K-O-N-G Letters) is:

Start of stage: (K and first Puzzle Piece): Go right to start the maze. Bop on the Tuck’s heads to grab the K. (The Tucks mentioned are the normal Tuck and the Speedy Tuck.) After this, use some correct jumping with Dixie to make it to a chest with some bananas. Collect all of them to nab the first Puzzle Piece. Jump into the water and go right to start the maze. You will find 5 Bananas before entering.

Red Chest Area: Go right into the upper right passage. You will find 2 Finleys and 4 Bananase at first, with 7 later and a Finley afterward. Continue onward to collect 7 more Bananas. Go upwards after this to go to the next area which is the Gold Snaggles Room

Golden Snaggles Room: (First Kong Barrel and O): Go into the upper left passage. There will also be a total of 26 Bananas and the O. There will be a Gold Snaggles here, so watch out.

Tunnel Room 1: Go downwards to get into an area with another pipe to get to the next area.

Red Key Room (Second Puzzle Piece): There's your first key! Go left to get into the first Bonus Stage. Collect all 100 Bananas and you will have the second Puzzle Piece. Go to where the jet stream goes into a passage.
