Air Curtain is a stage hazard in Kirby's Dream Course. It resembles a long and thin air vent in the floor, distinguished by its indigo border and bright white grating, and can be oriented in two different ways in line with the course geometry. If Kirby passes over one, he will be pushed upward at a constant rate of acceleration by the air current coming our of the vent, which can be used either to gain additional lift from ground level or slow down a descent.
The effect of Air Curtains are not registered by the guide line of Kirby's predicted trajectory, so care should be taken when passing over them.
