Bonus Area #2

It may be tempting to aim for the 1-Up Balloon or Winky Token, but this Bonus Area holds a very tricky secret for those willing to forgo a quick reward...

Matching three single bananas in this Bonus Area will reward you with not a banana, but a regular throwable barrel. This barrel can be used to access a fiendishly well-hidden Bonus Area within this Bonus Area!

The Bonus round will end as soon as the barrel breaks (or when the lead Kong lands, if they're in midair), so the best way to access the next Bonus Area is to carry the barrel right and jump against the right wall, making sure to jump before making contact with the wall.

This technique will reveal the hidden entrance to Bonus Area #3, and the Kong(s) will immediately enter!

Bonus Area #3

Perhaps the game's best-hidden Bonus Area (a Bonus within a Bonus?!), here you'll have the chance to earn Extra Life Balloons of increasing value over three 'spelling bee' rounds.

1. DONKEY (1-Up Balloon)
2. KONG (2-Up Balloon)
3. COUNTRY (3-Up Balloon)
