Each character has his or her own stage, and the platforms are placed in a specific manner to make the player use one or more of the special skills they possess to reach some of them. These are generally double and Up B jumps. After landing on the top of the platform, the previously red flashing light will change to a static blue. Once all ten are blue, the stage finishes, and the announcer will say if there is "A new record!", or if it's just simply "Complete". If the stage has been accessed via 1P Game, the scoring screen for the Board the Platforms stage will show up instead.
This special stage can be entered in a 1P Game or in the 1P Mode/Bonus 2 Practice menu. If it is entered in the adventure game, it will be a time-based stage, in which the player must land on all ten before the timer runs out, or else the result will be Failure. If they succeed, the scoring screen will show up, and the player will be taken to the next level (vs. Kirby Team).
If the stage is entered via the 1P Mode menu, for practice mode, the player can compete for the fastest time, and seeing that it's practice mode, any character can be chosen, and while on the stage itself, the player can press L while paused to restart.
