Candy's Save Point is the name of Candy Kong's saving service, where Donkey Kong or Diddy Kong will come to it to save their game. It was first introduced in Donkey Kong Country. It is a wooden booth with red and white striped awning and a sign with lights that run around it.
The purpose of this area is self-explanatory. When the Kongs enter, Candy will greet them, usually offering advice to save "before it's too late", a reference to how Kongs (in the SNES version of Donkey Kong Country) could, at any time, get stuck on a level in the next world and not have access to a save point (often Gorilla Glacier) until a later part of the level. As such, it is smart to save before confronting a boss and whenever the Kongs first reach the Save Point (though of course players are free to save whenever at their own discretion).
The Save Point's use was lessened in both remakes of Donkey Kong Country, since the Game Boy Color version had it replaced with Candy's Challenge where the monkeys had to get a Banana Coin in a challenge in each world.The Game Boy Advance version had it reduced to a Dance Studio, due to having the ability to save anytime by map. In the dancing mini-game, the Kongs could win lives. The Kongs could save anywhere on the map in that remake. A similar thing happened to Funky's Flights.
