Mine Cart Carnage is the second level in the Monkey Mines and seventh overall in the game Donkey Kong Country. It comes after Winky's Walkway and before Bouncy Bonanza.

Overview

Mine Cart Carnage is the first Mine Cart level having Donkey and Diddy ride an unstoppable Mine Cart through a long series of mine rails, most of which are torn apart, meaning the two have to jump their Mine Cart to the other side. The level is laid out for the Mine Cart to grab many bonuses at high risk of falling off the track. Also, several Mine Carts can be found abandoned on the rails as well, which causes a Kong to lose a life on contact. There are also a few Krashes thrown in. Nine Krashes total are found in this level (six in the Japanese version).

A famous shortcut involves the Kongs jumping over the starting launching barrel at the beginning of the level, jumping over on purpose, and falling to the left into a Warp Barrel.
