Lvl 7-3 is the third stage of Level 7 in Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble.
This stage takes place in an underground setting. Kirby will first need to make use of a number of lifts that will ferry him over the bottomless pits ahead. There are quite a few of these, spread out over various rooms and pits of differing size and shape. Further up, Kirby needs to deal with bumpers and crumbling floors as he snakes his way further into the tunnel before reaching the gate. From here, Kirby will need to make use of red and blue lifts which need to be moved manually using the A and B buttons respectively. This done, he will need to use regular lifts to pass by platforms with Waddle Dees on them and then ride one more red lift along a long bottomless corridor with bumpers moving through it to reach the goal pad at the end.
In the Extra Game, some lifts are placed in different ways, and the Waddle Dees are replaced with blue rotating bars. There are also a few extra bumpers at the end.

|Star guide for Level 7-3
|This star can be obtained by riding a lift past the platform with the star pieces on it and disembarking on a separate platform further up. After this, Kirby needs to ride a second lift over a wide pit to get to the star.
|This star can be found on the left side of the initial part of the tunnel, past the array of star pieces. It is tucked away into a small room accessible from the third of four laterally-moving lifts. The star takes Kirby to a bonus area where he can use his brief moments of invincibility to clear away big bumpers to get 1-Ups.
