Swanky's Dash is an area found in the Game Boy Advance remake of Donkey Kong Country 3 which replaces Swanky's Sideshow from the Super Nintendo Entertainment System version. It can be found in every area of the Northern Kremisphere.


In the Game Boy Advance remake of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, Cranky Kong, who initially participated in Swanky's Sideshow, now is busy running his own Dojo across the Northern Kremisphere. Because of this, Swanky needed to run a different type of game in order to keep business.

Thus, Swanky reworked his business into Swanky's Dash, a virtual-reality game involving Dixie Kong running through a pipeline filled with small stars and spike balls. There, she must collect as many stars as possible. The price for playing the game is two Bear Coins, and only Dixie can do this game since Kiddy is too young, making him unable to compete in the mini-game.

There is a different type of dash pipeline per world and they progressively get harder. The prize for winning a round is some Bear Coins, Banana Bunches, and for the first time completing it in any world, a Banana Bird.
