Wayslide Cool is a multiplayer stage in Splatoon 2. It was the first variation of Shifty Station. It appeared in the Mayo vs. Ketchup Splatfest, and returned in the Chaos vs. Order and second Mayo vs. Ketchup Splatfests. As of Version 5.0.0, it is exclusively available in Private Battles. It features large, sliding platforms that move across the stage.


Players spawn on either end of the stage, on raised platforms that lead down to sequentially shorter platforms connected by ramps. To the right is a large open area, and straight ahead is a small passage connecting the two halves of the map. In the gaps between each half of the map are two medium-sized platforms that periodically move side-to-side.

Version history

Version Adjustments
4.9.1 or earlier
  • Greatly reduced the rate at which the sliding platforms move.




  • The file name for this stage is "Deli_Octa01" and its code name is "SlideLift", likely referring to how the moving platforms serve as lifts.
    • The revision of this stage has the file name "Deli_Octa01_2", and another alternate version has the file name "Deli_Octa51", though this one is unused.
    • Going by the internal stage list, an even later introduced Shifty Station, Windmill House on the Pearlie, has the file name "Deli_Octa00", meaning that it may have been the first to be completed.
  • This stage was one of five returning stages to lack the ambience that other Shifty Stations had in Recon mode during Chaos vs. Order. It has also been missing the sound effect that plays while the moving platforms are in motion since its return.


Wayslide Cool is named after the Wayside School books by Louis Sachar, as well as being a pun on the large sliding platforms seen in the stage. It is also likely a play on the phrase "way cool".
