The main platform is the peak of Spiral Mountain. After a warning signal, the plane of gameplay rotates around the centre of the mountain, changing the overall layout of the stage and causing characters and objects on the spiral pathway to be pushed up or down. Wooden platforms and rarely floating patches of ground occasionally appear in the various layouts. Bottles, Mumbo Jumbo, Tooty, the Jinjo (which come in groups of one to five) and Gruntilda all cameo on the stage, with Gruntilda flying in the background on her broom. Various objects from the original game, such as Extra Honeycomb Pieces and Buzzbombs, can be seen in the background. With stage hazards turned off, the stage doesn't rotate, and the layout permanently features two large platforms on either side of the stage, floating slightly above the main platform.
