Swanky's Dash is a location operated by Swanky Kong in the Game Boy Advance remake of Donkey Kong Country 3. It replaces every Swanky's Sideshow from the original version. There is a Swanky's Dash in every world except Krematoa. As he did in Swanky's Sideshow, Swanky charges two bear coins each time the mini-game is played.

Swanky's Dash is a virtual-reality game. In it, Dixie (Kiddy cannot participate because Swanky says he is too young) runs through a pipeline filled with small stars and explosive spiky obstructions. Dixie must grab the stars by moving all around the perimeter of the pipeline. Dixie's objective is to collect as many stars within 45 seconds (there are 100 stars in every stage). If Dixie hits a spiky obstruction, she loses every star that she collected.

Most worlds have their own Swanky's Dash stage except Krematoa. Every stage has a unique layout, with later ones including more spiky obstructions. If Dixie collects most of the stars along her way, she wins the mini-game. Swanky rewards her with Bear Coins, Banana Bunches, and a Red Balloon. When Dixie completes the challenge for the first time, Swanky rewards a Banana Bird to her and Kiddy.

By entering "EXTRAS" from the Cheats menu, the player can replay Swanky's Dash (along with Cranky's Dojo and Funky's Rentals) from the "Bonus Games" menu. There, the player can select a world challenge to replay. Each challenge saves a high score if Dixie collects more stars than in the previous time.
