From WiKirby, your independent source of Kirby knowledge.
Lvl 5-2 is the second stage of Level 5 in Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble.
This stage takes place in an icy cavern. At the start, Kirby is informed via Hint Board that there are floors up ahead - colored red and blue - which vanish and reappear at regular intervals. Along the path ahead, Kirby will need to make use of these floors while they are still solid to move forward past the otherwise open pits and bumpers. After passing through a number of wide halls, he can reach the gate. From here, large bounce pads can be found on the floor which can be used in a similar manner to pop-up floors in previous stages to bounce Kirby upward. The last set of rooms involve using these bounce pads to pass more vanishing floors and other barriers before reaching the goal pad at the end.
In the Extra Game, there is a Blinkbat in the room with the large checkered pop-up floors and spike beds.

|Just after the gate, Kirby can make use of the bounce pads on the floor to obtain temporary invincibility, which can be used to clear out a bumper blocking a small nook on the right side. From here, the star can be uncovered inside the small area.

|Just before the gate, this star can be found by accessing a narrow side-tunnel to the left, which is blocked off by a bumper. The star takes Kirby to a bonus area where Kirby can make use of the vanishing floors to grab star pieces on grassy platforms.
