Big Penguin Race

It’s time to return to the slide, only things will be slightly different on this trip. Jump into the chimney at the beginning of the course to enter the slide, only you will see a big penguin there. Approach the penguin and it will mention it wants to race down the slide. This big penguin can be a definite pain in the butt, as you will see when attempting to race it. At certain points during the slide, it will speed up and pass you, which is highly annoying as you’re trying to turn corners. This means you might be falling off the edge of the slide and into the abyss, making you start all over.

(1 of 2) The big penguin will “catch” up to you multiple times

The big penguin will “catch” up to you multiple times (left), It will know if you used the shortcut, so don’t (right)

To make matters even more annoying, you cannot use the shortcut past the false wall, as the big penguin calls you on your cheating at the end of the race. So, you will need to beat the big penguin legitimately in order to get this star, which might take a few practice rounds, especially if you took the shortcut during Slip Slidin’ Away. Once you do beat the big penguin, wait for it to stop moving at the bottom and when you approach the thing, you will be given your Power Star.
