The area is full of poisonous purple water. Even though the water is said to be poisonous, all it does is reverse the Kongs' left and right directions. They will have to cope with this issue as they get through the level. Lurchins and Kocos lurk in the tunnels, with a single Krimp inhabiting the land areas. The star barrel is hidden in a smaller tunnel. Much later into the level the group will find the surface. If they continue north from this area, they will eventually exit the crazy water, and find the flagpole that will end the level.
