Trunk Twister is the fourth stage in Lost Mangroves from Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. It is preceded by Canopy Chaos and followed by Zip-Line Shrine.


Being the first Mine Cart level in the game, Trunk Twister allows players to get used to Mine Cart controls. There are a few obstacles and mechanics, consisting of crates, crashed ships and planes that tilt, along with enemies walking the tracks. Enemies are in a moderate amount.


The Kongs go forward and encounter some Dozies, and a Thug Slug, along with a Kong Barrel. After this is a platforms that falls, with a Barrel Cannon shooting towards after it. When the ride begins, there are gaps with collectibles to be collected. A plane thats wings go up and down, in respect to where the Kongs are is after this, along with a Tuck. After this is a section with Monocle Monicas, with crates the drop afterwards. Another plane appears, and crates that the Kongs must dunk under and jump over. A part of a plane that is on fire is after this, which the Kongs must duck under. A Tuck and a Waldough are after this, with a 2.5-dimensional with huge vines to jump over and flaming planes to duck under, along with gaps. The Kongs then go down a slope and when they reach flat ground, they need to avoid a Waldough and a Hootz. Tilting parts of planes then appear, along with a Papa Painguin, which leads into another 2.5-dimensional sequence with crates and planes flying into the canopy, which must be ducked under. Another flaming plane is after this, which must be ducked under, and once they get out, the Kongs will have parts of planes going up and down. A tilting part of a ship appears with crates that must be jumped and ducked under, along with a large part of a ship falling through the surface, breaking it. A crate then falls onto a suspending part of a plane that launches the Kongs upwards before they bonk a Hootz on the head. They then reach a platform and fall down in a cutscene before reaching the bottom of the stream, where ships emerge from the water, and there are flaming parts of planes. After this, they land on a plane surrounded by water with the Slot Machine Barrel hovering in the middle of it.
