With Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze having just released, we thought it would be a good time to help out with some guides for the game. In this game, to access the three bonus levels in each world, you must find at least one secret exit to gain access to the rest. As a result, we thought it would be a good idea to tell you where to find these exits, as some are harder to find than the others. Now, let’s get down to business and take a look at the first world of the game, Lost Mangroves.
1-2 Shipwreck Shore (Leads to 1-A Zip-Line Shrine)
First of all, this one requires Dixie Kong to access. After passing the second checkpoint in the stage, move past the shark until you see three grasshopper-like enemies perched on three boxes on water. Instead of continuing on from here, dive in the water and move straight down. Use Dixie Kong’s underwater ability by holding down A and you will soon found yourself in front of a blue warp that will take you to the secret exit.
1-3 Canopy Chaos (Leads to 1-B Busted Bayou)
This one will take you through the entire level and to the end-stage barrel. However, do not hit this but instead start to climb up the platforms above it. Using either Cranky Kong or Dixie Kong, get yourself up to the top right hidden platform. At this point you will see the blue secret exit at the top left of the screen, so make your way over to it and you are set.
That is all for the secret exits in the first world of the game. There is still one more stage to unlock, 1-K Swinger Flinger. To do this, you must collect all of the KONG letters in each of the stages in this world, including the two bonus stages. Stay tuned for more guides to come for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.
