Canvas Canyon is the third stage of Bloo Hills in Canvas Curse. Kirby must travel through this canyon after being cursed to a ball form by the witch Drawcia. Canvas Canyon shares design elements with Ravine Road. Kirby again must travel mostly through the air to pass these areas.

Rainbow Run offers companion challenges unlocked after completing the Bloo Hills level. The Time Trial and Line Trial challenges both reuse the first area and offer three medals each for meeting the challenge goals. The main game also offers three hidden medals. All of the medals are currency for use in Medal Swap.

Area 1[edit]

Kirby will need to travel over large expanses of open pits. Strong gusts of wind constantly push Kirby back in this area. Although several cannons can be used to get a boost, the wind still requires extensive use of Rainbow Lines to travel forward. Waddle Dee, Waddle Doo, Bronto Burt, and some parachuting bombs are the only enemies present.

Energy Drinks appear in places Kirby is likely to normally pass, such as immediately beside the exit door. Point Stars also line likely taken paths, even following the arc of the cannon fire. The medal for this area is hidden well. The path to reach it is visible on the map, but hidden with foreground objects overhead midway through the area near a rotating spiked arm.

This area appears in both challenges of Rainbow Run.

Area 2[edit]

The tornado ability can be gained from Twister right from the start. This area also has strong winds blowing, and can be difficult to traverse. The map is mostly a vertical rise, but staggered lands offer little relief. Many of the Bomb Blocks destroy the stone ledge below Kirby, leaving him suspended in the air; in addition to the required overhead block destruction. This area also contains several sets of spikes on ceilings in which the winds may blow Kirby directly into. Other enemies in the area include Waddle Dees, Flamer (offers Burning copy ability), Caveela, Pacto, Topper, Bloon (grants Balloon ability), and Shotzos.

Point stars are abundant and often are found forming the shape of a directional arrow, indicating the direct to travel. The medal is again hidden in foreground grass that can be passed through, this time it is visible between two Pactos.

Area 3[edit]

The final area is somewhat easier to traverse as the wind blows from beneath Kirby. The first challenge consists of passing several shutters and switches. At a high point of the area, a rotating chain of Blados in an X formation will need to be passed on the way up, across, and down to the checkpoint. Waddle Dees, Waddle Doos (Beam ability, Bronto Burt, Bloon, and Soarar all appear in this area.

A rare appearance of a Maxim Tomato occurs early in the area. The medal can be obtained with good timing in the dropping contact-activated cannon. The blue Action Block must be removed before-hand by finding the corresponding switch in another area.
