Witchyworld is the third level in Banjo-Tooie. It is a rundown, decrepit theme park with broken, dangerous rides and other unwelcome attractions. It had such a bad safety record it was closed down some time ago. It is run by deranged and hostile employees that will attack anyone on sight, as well as perverse purveyors running the unsanitary food stands. Witchyworld also has strict constraints on taking out food off of the park's premises. Any food that Banjo and Kazooie try to sneak out of Witchyworld is immediately confiscated, unless a certain route is taken.
The park is divided into four sections, not counting the entrance or Big Top; the Space Zone, the Haunted Zone, the Wild West Zone, and lastly another space-based zone called Area 51. Each "Zone" has different scenery and attractions. The Space Zone has the Saucer of Peril, Dodgem Dome, and the Star Spinner. The Wild West Zone has an inflatable bouncy castle called the Crazy Castle and the Cactus of Strength. Finally, the Haunted Zone has the Dive of Death, the Inferno, the train station, and a freak-show consisting of an "Ancient Bearded Camel", a "Mighty Evil Dinosaur", and a "Weird Killer Alien". However most of the rides are out of service, and require a jolt of electricity from Mumbo to jump start them.
This area was also featured in Banjo-Pilot.
Jamjars Hatch 1: Split-up
- Witchyworld - This move is learned on the rear side of the Big Top tent. (160 Notes)
- Step on the Banjo pad and press A to split up Banjo and Kazooie, making them separate playable characters. Press A on the pads again to switch between characters. When done, move the analog stick toward the current one on standby to reunite them. Banjo and Kazooie cannot leave worlds when they are still separated.
Jamjars Hatch 2: Pack Whack
- Crazy Castle Stockade - This move is learned at the desert attraction and is only available while controlling Banjo. (170 Notes)
- If the B button is pressed while standing still, Banjo will swing his backpack around to attack surrounding enemies. The Split-up move must be learned first, before learning this move.
Jamjars Hatch 3: Airborne Egg Aiming
- Witchyworld - This move is learned in the back left corner of the space zone. (180 Notes)
- While flying, press the up C button to get into first-person view; move the analog stick to aim, and press Z to shoot eggs.

- Ringing the Cactus of Strength: In Western Land, Banjo and Kazooie must use the Bill Drill, Beak Buster, and Grenade Egg techniques to ring the bell and win the duo a Jiggy.
- Surviving the Dive of Death: One of the main attractions in the Horror Zone is an enormous tower titled the "Dive of Death". Banjo and Kazooie must climb to the very top of the tower and walk along an extremely narrow beam to pick up a Jiggy hovering at its end.
- On Top the Spiral Slide in the Inferno: The Horror Zone also features a frightening "Inferno" ride, a tall tower with Hotheads speeding down it. The bear and bird must use their new Split-up ability to separate. Banjo must stand on a Shock Jump Pad switch, leaving Kazooie to grab a pair of Turbo Trainers and dash up the tower to recover the Jiggy. Humba Wumba's transformation is also required, as Van Banjo must pay before this challenge can be attempted.
- Winning the Crazy Castle's Hoop Hurry Challenge: Only Kazooie can play the Hoop Hurry Challenge. The game is played simply by jumping through various rings around the room.
- Re-inflating the Crazy Castle and Winning its Balloon Shoot Mini-game: Western Land's main attraction, the Crazy Castle, has been deflated. Banjo and Kazooie must split up to pump up the building and win a Jiggy prize in Gruntilda's Balloon Shoot mini-game.
- Riding the Saucer of Peril: Mumbo's magic is needed for the last time to restore power to the Saucer of Peril (given it has already been freed from Glitter Gulch Mine). After these requirements have been met, the Saucer of Peril will allow them to attempt his shooting mini-game round.
- Climbing the stars of the Star Spinner: Grunty's lack of care for her park has resulted in several of the rides losing their power, so Mumbo Jumbo must use his magic to revitalize this ride before the duo can try to reach the Jiggy. With power restored, Banjo and Kazooie can then scale the stars and pick up a Jiggy, located on a rotating metal planet.
- Winning the Dodgems Challenge: Like the Star Spinner, the Dodgem Dome is out of Power and must be restored. Humba Wumba's transformational powers are also required, as Van Banjo must pay before this challenge can be attempted. Once they pay to play, Banjo and Kazooie can compete in Dodgems Challenge to win a Jiggy.
- Defeating Mr. Patch: The evil Mr. Patch is lurking inside the Big Top Tent, but Conga denies them access inside it until they bring him enough Tickets and show him mastery of the Airborne Egg Aiming skill. Once they do, they must defeat Mr. Patch.
- Rounding up the Boggy Children: In an unexpected throwback to Freezeezy Peak, Banjo and Kazooie run into Mrs. Boggy in the park entrance. She wants the pair to round up her three children: Groggy, Soggy, and Moggy. Soggy will go if the duo offers her a box of fries, while Moggy must be given a little discipline (a simple attack will do) to convince him to go back. Groggy demands a burger, but when he eats one, he becomes too obese to walk. Banjo must use his Taxi Pack to carry him back to Mrs. Boggy, who will give him a sound beating for spoiling his dinner and give the duo a Jiggy.
- Split Up: Found at the back of the big tent. Allows you to use the Split Up pads.
- Pack Whack: Located in the desert area. Where the blow-up castle is, there are some Split Up pads. Use them to take control of Banjo and go up to the Jamjars silo where the Minjo is to learn Whack Pack.

- On the Big Top: Trapped atop the Big Top Tent.

Shortcuts to Other Worlds
- The top of the Area 51 sector leads to Oogle Boogle's Cave in Terrydactyland as a bypass of the second Digger Tunnel located between the main exit area and Wasteland. Taking this exit allows you to sneak food out of Witchyworld.
- The top of the Space Zone leads to Glitter Gulch Mine's Fuel Depot.
- In the dumpster outside of Banjo's House in Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts are several tickets that read "Witchyworld Admit 1", much like the ones used to enter Conga's Big Top. One of these tickets also appears as an item in a Jinjo Fetch mission in the Terrarium of Terror. Also floating outside of the Terrarium of Terror are billboards advertising Witchyworld.
- The Information signposts outside of Witchyworld read the following:
- "The Theme Park Witchyworld is closed due to an appalling safety record. Once the authorities have been bribed we will reopen soon. Thank You."
- "Anyone who rides all the quality attractions and survives are entitled to join the Witchyworld Fan club. Current Club Members - 0."
- "The management accepts no responsibility for the thieving pickpockets that it employs within Witchyworld."
- Witchyworld's Mumbo House has horns and takes a devil-like appearance, fitting for its location in the Inferno.
- A sign advertising a seemingly defunct ride, the "Flume of Doom" next to Witchyworld's entrance has 2 skulls eerily similar to either Mumbo Token or that of Mingy Jongo.
- This is the only level in the game that doesn't have an underwater variation, although it is possible to go underwater in the pool under the Dive of Death.
- This world was originally intended for Banjo-Kazooie, but was pulled out due to time restrictions
- If you zap the control box (which is open) on the side of the Star Spinner's generator as Mumbo, Grunty will say "Stop it you vandal! You'll have to pay for any damage, you know!" You don't actually have to pay for it though, it's just a joke. You cannot do this with other generators because their power boxes are closed.
- In the lobby of the Crazy Castle, by using the Beak Buster and getting the timing right, you can actually use the floor like a real bouncy house. The floor has a big bounce to it and will fling Banjo and Kazooie high into the air repeatedly.
- In the original manual that came with the game, it states: "...inside Grunty's rundown amusement park...", meaning that the park is owned by Grunty.
- The level itself may be a reference to Action Park because it was an amusement park that was closed due to various injuries and deaths involving unsafe rides, a poor safety record, and negligent, as well as intoxicated staff.
- The name Witchyworld might be a parody of Disneyworld.
- Part of the music heard in 'The Haunted Cavern', specifically the xylophone track was worked into the Kranky's theme in DK64.
