The player must navigate several platforms with the 8-ball to reach the goal.

Checkpoint 1

When the player begins this stage, they find themselves on a platform looking at the 8-ball on a rail and a platform below. Shooting the 8-ball causes it to roll along the rail and activate an 8-ball Switch. This causes a Splat-Switch to move along the platform below which has to be inked to make the next rail rotate in the right direction. If done in time, the 8-ball rolls through five Squid Rings before landing on a platform below. The player can use a ride rail to get it, and to the second checkpoint.

Checkpoint 2

The 8-ball has to move onto a rail. After hitting an 8-ball switch, an uninkable wall with a small Splat-Switch raises, which has to be inked quickly. After launching the 8-ball onto another platform, an inkable wall raises, allowing the player to get to the same platform. Before reaching it, the player encounters a Sanitized Shielded Octotrooper, which they can splat or ignore, and gets to the third and final checkpoint.

Final checkpoint

The player has to hit the 8-ball onto a rail and immediately get on a nearby ride rail to ink a Splat-Switch on their way. The 8-ball collects many Squid Ring while Agent 8 jumps on a narrow but long platform with another Shielded Octotrooper blocking a Splat-Switch. Take care of the Octarian and hit the switch before the 8-ball rolls off the rail. If done correctly, both the 8-ball and the player can collect three Squid Rings each before landing on the last platform with the goal. Push the 8-ball onto the goal, and the player clears this station.
