Great Cave Escape is the third stage in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. It is the third stage of Green Valley. It succeeds Up the Big Ol' Tree and precedes The Forest of Whispy Woods.

General Information

Kirby plunges deep into a huge cavern. The pink puff must bypass dangerous Gordos and fire out of cannons to escape. Rushing waterfalls are common in this cave, and Carpas nonchalantly swim up them; in order to let Kirby pass through the powerful stream, Elline must draw rainbow ropes to block the water.


The following items are contained in this stage's Treasure Chests:


  • The first room hides an Easter egg. If the player draws a rainbow rope to block the waterfalls and drop the Carpas that are out of reach, a 1UP and two 10-Stars appear as a reward.[1]
  • The stage features a rearrangement of Kirby's Dream Land 2’s title screen theme.
