The Rocket Barrel is an item/usable obstacle in Donkey Kong Country Returns. It is a type of Barrel with rocket wings and engine that is rideable. The player controlling the Kongs ( Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong) can hold the A button on the Wii Remote to rise up, and let go of the A button to descend (lower). The Kongs must be careful though, for there are many dangers they must avoid and they must be quick to avoid them. If the Kongs hit something, the Rocket Barrel explodes and the Kongs will lose an Extra Life Balloon. When using the Wii Remote alone, the 2 button is used to ascend (rise). Like the Minecart, the Rocket Barrel has some levels that require its use for most or part of it.
