The Adventure Begins
- This article is about the stage in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. For the theme music for this stage, see The Adventure Begins (theme from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse). For the main theme for Kirby's Return to Dream Land, see The Adventure Begins (theme from Kirby's Return to Dream Land).
The Adventure Begins is the first stage of Green Valley in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. This stage is a mixture of open fields and more confined spaces carved into brown stone. Both areas are covered in green grass and adorned with orange flowers. Completing this stage unlocks stage 1-2 Up the Big Ol' Tree and allows amiibo to be scanned from the stage-selection screen.
Kirby initially starts in a tutorial area set in a room of textured green blocks. Circular windows offer a view of the world to come. A special door appears in the first room on subsequent playthroughs allowing Kirby to skip most of this area.
After leaving the tutorial area, Kirby starts off in an open field with trees, pathways and a rainbow-filled blue sky in the background. Orange Pop Flowers litter the ground. Progressing through this area leads to a semi-enclosed space with a brown stone background. There's a hidden 1-up hiding somewhere behind these walls.
The following area is much more enclosed and linear than the previous area and follows a path carved into brown stone. A collection of medium Point Stars allow Kirby his first opportunity to Star Dash through a wall. There is another 1-up hidden in this area, which can be reached by meddling with the soft blue clay.
In the final area, the space surrounding Kirby has become more open, and this area focuses on Kirby's ability to vertically traverse in the air, with several suspended platforms hanging in the air coupled with hard-to-reach areas above the Gray Zone near the top of the area. If Kirby has been practicing his Star Dash, he might even be able to ring the bell.

|The chest can be found in the second area, on the main path at the top of a ledge just before the first green Kirby-stopper pole.|
Treasure 2: Elline Figurine
|This chest can be found in an alcove in the third area just after Kirby obtains the Star Dash ability.|
|This chest is located up high in the fourth area, above the Gray Zone within some gray blocks that require Kirby's Star Dash to break.|
Treasure 4: Green Greens Music
|In the fourth area, Kirby must roll through the multi-colored Pop Flowers along the lower path and then collect all the food to unlock a challenge door. Completing the challenge inside yields the treasure.|
Treasure 5: Cotta Figurine
|In the fourth area, Kirby must use a Launch Cannon to reach above the Gray Zone. He must then roll through all the flowers until a chain of point stars and a treasure chest appear attached to balloons.|
The following enemies appear in this stage:
The stage begins with a short tutorial section. This is the first room in that section, teaching the Touch Dash technique.
The second tutorial room features Cottas, which can be defeated using the Touch Dash.
The third and last room instructs the player how to draw Rainbow Ropes.
Kirby is visibly excited to be bouncing off these springs.
