Goonie Heights is the second level of World 5 in the game Yoshi's Island DS. It is a dusty, canyon-themed level inhabited by an abundance of Goonies, some of which cannot fly. These Goonies can be essential to the game, as in some points, Yoshi could jump on their backs to reach previously unreachable points. In this level, the player can find Baby Donkey Kong's Character Coin hidden in a high cliff.

This level is very similar to the original's Goonie Rides!.


Pink Yoshi begins the level crossing a few pits and facing three Flightless Goonies. Near, the dinosaur must traverse a longer abyss, jumping on tilt platforms. Reaching the other side, and facing more Flightless Goonies and a Spear Guy, he must go through another gap with tilting platforms. White Yoshi gets to the other side, and, while avoiding Flightless Goonies, Woozy Guys and a Nipper Plant, he reaches an area, where he can grab a Flower, hidden in a narrow tunnel. Next, even more tipping platforms are seen, as the player must cross a pit, dealing with Goonies. The player, then, must avoid a Mufti Guy and proceed to the next area.

Next, White Yoshi must step in some floating platforms, and use Eggs or Baby Donkey Kong attacks to reach a Flower. After crossing many Flightless Goonies, Mufti Guys, an Eggo-Dil, a Piranha Plant and riding Goonies to cross pits to get a Flower, the player can proceed to the next area.

Next, the dinosaur must use Goonies and Donut Lifts to reach a Warp Pipe and the fourth Flower. The pipe leads White Yoshi to an area containing spikes and Spear Guys, as well as the last Flower of the level. The player must use Goonies to avoid hazards, until he or she reaches the GOAL! Ring.
