Cool Cave is the third mandatory area of Hot Land in Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn, unlocked by using the Boxing Bell Patch. This area is an underground affair with lots of water pools, moving floors and tiny passages which require the Snake transformation to pass through. Completing this stage is necessary to obtain the Torch Patch and unlock Dino Jungle.
Upon tossing the patch, a boxing bell appears and rings, causing another jinn to appear, but this one has a stockier appearance and boxing gloves. It punches the carpet, causing it to unfurl the rest of the way before the boxing jinn disappears. In the newly revealed area, a door opens to Cool Cave.
The stage begins with Kirby entering the cave from the volcanic area, which starts with a tiny tunnel that requires him to transform into the Snake form to pass through. Once inside, Kirby will find himself in a damp environment with shifting floors and ceilings, along with a few subterranean foes to contend with. Much of the path involves navigating snake tunnels, dealing with moving floors, and near the end, hopping across falling stalactites. Rolling Clods are also found in abundance here where, unlike in Pyramid Sands, they are actually rolling about.
In the latter portion of the cave, Kirby transforms into the Digger and uses that form to tunnel through the dirt along the path forward. His main concern here will be Flamers which can roll along the tunnels he creates. After passing through the Reel Gate, the Bonus Bell can be found outside the cave in a jungle area to clear the course.

- Cool Cave is one of two stages featuring hidden artwork behind the cotton, the other being Mole Hole. In this stage we see several fossils, likely forshadowing the next stage: Dino Jungle. Among them however, there are depictions of a Prince Fluff-looking figure with an axe and several other armed creatures following them. It's possibly a prehisoric ancestor of Prince Fluff himself.
- Interestingly, the last drawing in the cave depicts the primitive figures in a smaller manner, and the fossil looming above them makes it seem as if they are preparing to fight it.
