Wigglevine Wonders is the thirty-fitfh stage in Donkey Kong Country Returns, as well as the seventh stage in the Forest world. It is preceded by Springy Spores and followed by Muncher Marathon.


Wigglevine Wonders revolves around the use of the species called Wigglevines to move across the stage. Aside from the Wigglevines, there are normal vines throughout the stage as well. Some of bigger Wigglevines take the Kongs across the stage, while the smaller versions slowly descend or disappear. On many occasions in the stage, the Kongs are attacked by Tiki Zings as they ride through large gaps on the Wigglevines. After this, you must climb up and down on the creature's vines to dodge the tikis. Common enemies here include Tiki Dooms, Tiki Goons and Chomps.



K-O-N-G Letters

  • K: When the Kongs ride over a large abyss with a Wigglevine for the first time, the letter K flies up to them with a trail of Bananas.
  • O: In the second part of the stage when the Kongs must use a Wigglevine to cross a large gap, they should climb between two Tiki Zings to grab the letter O that flies towards them.
  • N: On the Wigglevine before the 1st checkpoint, the Kongs can find a large group of bananas with the letter N in it. The Kongs should maneuver along the vine of the Wigglevine to grab it.
  • G: In the third part of the stage where the Kongs must ride a Wigglevine over another large gap, the letter G flies up to the primates just before the reach the other side of the pit.

Puzzle Pieces

  • 1. At the beginning of the stage, the Kongs should jump up from a mushroom with a Tiki Goon on it to find an area hidden in the canopy. A Puzzle Piece is in this area in plain sight.
  • 2. When the heroes land on the platform right after crossing the abyss with the letter K, they should pound on a strange plant to reveal a Puzzle Piece.
  • 3. Shortly after the Kongs lower them selves with the small Wigglevine right after the second Puzzle Piece, the primates should jump on a platform hidden in the canopy climb upwards to a series of Wigglevines. They can jump across all of these creature's vines to reach a Barrel Cannon that shoots them into a Bonus stage. There, they must grab 80 bananas, two Banana Coins and one Extra Life Balloon places around several small, stationary platforms within thirty seconds. If they collect everything fast enough, a Puzzle Piece appears.
  • 4. Hidden in the canopy just after the checkpoint is a DK Barrel. The Kongs should pick it up and throw it at the sand bag nearby to reveal the fourth Puzzle Piece.
  • 5. On the platform located immediately after the fourth Puzzle Piece. the primates should use their Ground Pound move to smash the cracked piece of ground. When it breaks, they fall downwards into a Barrel Cannon that shoots them up into a hidden area in the canopy. Above the exit to this hidden area is the fifth Puzzle Piece.
  • 6. On the platform following the area with the letter G, the Kongs should pound on a strange flower to make it spit out a Puzzle Piece.
  • 7. Immediately before the final area where the Kongs use the Wigglevine, they should pound on a strange plant to reveal the final Puzzle Piece.
