Sand Canyon - Stage 2 is the second stage of Sand Canyon in Kirby's Dream Land 3.


The stage begins out in the open desert, with a path leading to the right past nasty foes. Keke flies through the air, providing the Clean ability. Some of the sand is sliding, making traversal even trickier. Along the way, Coo and ChuChu can be met in a side-chamber. The path then leads through a tunnel before reaching the door.

Back out in the open, more tricky terrain awaits. Along the path, a side-chamber can be accessed which holds a 1-Up and some Energy Drinks, but some insight is needed to actually reach those items.

The next area is another open field. A few Bukisets guard a sandstone structure further right. Inside the building, a janitor can be seen sweeping up the floor. Further chambers contain rather dusty floors, along with some shady creatures making things more complicated. Back outside, more Bukisets guard the door to the next area.

The next room is a long winding tunnel, with Propellers inside.

The following area is a stroll through an oasis, though even here, Kirby is not safe from attack. It's a long trek past pools and dunes until the stage exit is reached on the other side.

In the last room, the janitor from earlier will reward Kirby with a Heart Star if he helped out.

Heart Star guide[edit]

Kirby helps sweep up the other rooms in the building.

In the sandstone tower, past the guarding Bukiset a janitor can be seen sweeping the floor. He has this room covered, but he'd be grateful if Kirby went and swept up the other two that have grown rather dusty. Naturally, the Clean ability is what Kirby will want for this task. Should he clean up both other floors, the janitor will give him a Heart Star as thanks at the end of the stage.
