The placid waters of the aquatic city now rage within the black hole.
— In-game description

The waters are much more rough due to the windy rainstorm making it harder for the player, and there are many obstacles along the way such as parked gondolas and broken bridges. Near the end of the course, there is a building which looks like an abandoned water factory, where the player passes through a water slide. There are a couple shortcuts that can be taken when on-foot with the attack item that lead to a quick gondola ride, in which the player controls the direction of said gondola to collect rings, similar to Aquatic Capital's shortcut.
