An ancient-looking level with lots of new platforming. This level starts outside and has lots of ancient platforms and pillars scattered around. It also has ruins that you can go inside which have traps and other obstacles.
- A Specter Coin is located in the Sparkplug pit. To get the the Sparkplug pit you must first go through the ruins and push the block next to the monkey Kenny. Once in the put go straight and then climb up the thin balancing beam to the left to get the coin
- Another Specter Coin can be found near the monkey Stan after you come out of the Sparkplug pit. To obtain it climb up the big stone blocks and poles found next to Stan
- A third Specter Coin is visible on a slope on Spike's left if you enter the first ruins and go follow the path up. In order to get it you must fall into the second trapdoor triggered by a monkey and then you have to loop around to the slope
There is a monkey with green pants that stands in front of a fan, in order to catch it you must crawl to sneak up on it because if it spots you it will turn on the fan and blow you away.
