Rainbow Falls is the third of the seven stages of Grass Land, in Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. To unlock it, Kirby must get the Alarm Clock Patch from Flower Fields. This level heavily revolves around water and its functions, taking place in a grassy canyon and series of cave systems. Near the end, the Metamortex Spin Boarder is used and introduced, as Kirby rides downhill past a series of rainbows.

Upon clearing the stage for the first time, the Bean Patch is obtained, allowing access to the next stage, Big-Bean Vine.

Patch animation[edit]

When Kirby throws the Alarm Clock Patch, it lands in a slot below the ground next to a sleeping bear. An alarm clock appears and wakes up the bear. The bear stretches and raises the earth above it into a small hill with rocks. Then the bear goes back to sleep and the door opens.


The stage starts out in a small cave behind a waterfall, before quickly transitioning outside to a grassy canyon. As Kirby progresses forward, he encounters a series of waterfalls, with water flowing down the surface of various platforms. These push Kirby (plus Prince Fluff in the Wii version's co-op mode) and other objects (like Cloth Blocks) in the same direction as the water flow, slowing his movement and threatening to push him into the many bottomless pits scattered around the stage. The major enemies in this first part of the stage are Waddle Dees and Gators.

Later, Kirby encounters a Yin-Yarn patch which spawns a constrant stream of Parasol Waddle Dees. Afterwards, he enters a tunnel, with another Yin-Yarn patch present (this time spawning regular Waddle Dees). Both threaten to push Kirby into nearby pits if he does not maneuver carefully. If Kirby travels upwards, he reaches an alternate path containing Gators and a treasure.

Metamortex stretch[edit]

Soon after, Kirby reaches a Metamortex patch, which introduces the Spin Boarder. Kirby starts out moving slowly, as a series of signs teach him the basics of the Spin Border, before he starts to speed up and move downhill. Along the way, beads are placed to lure Kirby over enemies, like Gators and Buttonflies, or to treasures and Bonus Stars.

Eventually, after a big jump, Kirby passes through the Reel Gate, with the stage ending shortly afterwards.
