Ice Cream Island - Stage 3 is the third stage of Ice Cream Island, the second level of Kirby's Adventure and its Game Boy Advance remake, Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land. It is the first location where Kirby fights the Meta-Knights.


The stage takes place in four primary areas. The first features two isolated landmasses, with Kirby on one and the door forward on the other. Kirby can use a Parasol to cross in style.

Through the door is a winding cavern, with parts dipping below water. This area is fairly perilous, containing spikes and many foes. To the left is a Bomb Block formation, behind which is a door leading to a side-room containing a UFO and Maxim Tomato. In the middle of the main passage, a route can be taken which leads to a 1-Up if Kirby still has an ability that can strike the block in the ceiling.

In the next area, Kirby is ambushed by the Meta-Knights. All of them need to be defeated in order to proceed.

In the last area, Kirby can go diving for an Energy Drink, then proceed to the stage exit.
