Swanky's Sideshow was featured in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and is a successor to the previous game's Swanky's Bonus Bonanza, run by Swanky Kong.

It is a circus themed attraction that can be found in every area of the Northern Kremisphere (except for Krematoa). The attraction itself is a target-breaking minigame where Dixie and Kiddy must throw balls at targets in a row in order to break them. There are three different ways to play, though all versions require a payment of two Bear Coins. Upon winning, Kongs will receive four Bear Coins and some Banana Bunches.

Cranky Kong makes his only appearance outside the ending of DKC3 in the Super Nintendo version, where he would play against the Kongs. He makes the usual ranting and comments if he wins or loses.

In the Game Boy Advance remake, it was replaced with Swanky's Dash.


Head to Head

The main version, this version has Kongs face Cranky in a race to hit the most targets in a similar fight when fighting Bleak and miss as few as possible. With each target hit, the meter on the right hand corner will go up, and when it reaches the top, the Kongs will win.

Race to 25

A fairly self-explanatory minigame, simply get twenty five targets before Cranky can.


Players must hit targets in order to continue, the first to miss the targets loses.



  • When fighting against Cranky in this area, two teddy bears, a doll, an Enguarde plush, Squawks plush, some bananas and a Squitter plush can be seen lying on the ground.
