DK's Jungle Parkway is the 3rd track in the Leaf Cup.The race starts off along the shoreline of the river which leads to a massive jump across the river. Players then follow the winding dirt path to a narrow wooden bridge at the edge of a waterfall. The bridge leads to a small cave, which ends at the start of the track.Characters are now riding the cruise boat, the water is orange instead of blue, and the jungle has been pushed back, eliminating the "natives". Another change is that there's mud inside the cave, which will slow down racers that try to cross it. The Dash Panel at the jump has been modified. In the N64 version, if the player is shrunk by a lightning bolt when approaching the jump, it is possible for the player not to make it over the river. In the Wii version, the panel acts similar to the

cannon in DK Mountain where the player will always make it across, even when shrunk. Also, the island in the middle of the river now has Piantas on it, unlike the Nintendo 64 version.
The N64 version has a glitch where it is possible to jump through the corner in the cave, resulting in as little as a 20 second race if done three times. This was not fixed in the Virtual Console release.
