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.
The second area 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 third 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 guarded by two Blippers, then proceed to the stage exit.
