  • This episode does not have alliteration. The first letter of both words is the same, but pronounced as "Kupkaik Serkus".
  • In Android and iOS, the silhouettes of Chocolate Barn and Minty Meadow can be seen in the background.
  • This episode has the same pattern of timed levels as Lemonade Lake's (level 27 & level 32 compared with level 177 & level 182).
  • Level 183 was difficult before it got nerfed. Hence, this episode used to have a Hell's Cluster from levels 180-184.
  • This was formerly the hardest episode in the game.
  • This episode contains the hardest timed level in the game currently.
