Geyser Blowout is the second level of the Jibberish Jungle, the first world in Rayman Origins. Many geysers and moving platforms are present in this level. This area was formerly known as Geyser Blast. This is also the first level to have hidden areas where the Electoon cages reside. The level is located on a rainy landscape with multiple creature-shaped rocks and water areas filled with Tentacle claws.
Upon entering the level, the players can see the Magician to the left who will tell them about Lums and Skull Coins if they hit or jump on top of his hat. Afterwards, the team will continue through the level using the geysers to gain extra height. The first Skull Coin is found in the lowest section after the geysers, floating over a small body of water. One of the players must fall on a floating nenuphar to reach it without touching the water plagued by Tentacle claws.
The team spots a Lum King upon entering and then slides down a waterfall onto some moving platforms near a geyser. After going up said geyser they encounter some Lums circling around Swingmen who help them across a huge gap. However, below the gap is the first secret area of the level and of the game which the players can access and find the first Electoon cage. After that, the second Skull Coin can be seen, inside of a small tunnel located under a platform were some Psychlops can be seen jumping. If the heroes get close or enter the tunnel, it will start collapsing; the heroes must run after the coin and quickly escape by the other side before they get crushed. Afterwards, they can head back up going through more geysers and then using a bomb bulb to continue on to the next area.
Secret Area 1
Moving platforms expand greatly in this area through the effect of the exploded bomb bulb. The players need to be careful throughout because the platforms can crush the team. The third and fourth Skull Coins are covered by plants in the upper areas, where Rayman seems able to perform a walljump. At the end of the level, the secret area is at the bottom being guarded by a Psychlops.
Secret Area 2
The team must defeat the four Lividstones guarding the cage. To do this they can either hit the bulb causing the platforms the three Lividstones are standing on to disappear thus making them fall into the rapid water into a Spiky flower then defeating the last one manually or defeating them all manually. Doing it the latter way can give the player a few extra Lums. The team must also be careful to not fall into the water and get bubblized by the Spiky flowers themselves.
Now the team must put their skills to the test and conquer a mix of moving platforms and geysers and avoid falling in dangerous water containing tentacle claws. The sixth Skull Coin is located underwater; they must take it and use a geyser to escape from the tentacle claw quickly. The players will have to be extra careful when avoiding the water in instances like activating the Lum King because it is right above it. Also, a bulb-o-Lum that appears from one of the little grasses, as it stays right above the water as well. Finally, the last Skull Coin is located under a rocky platform after the grabbing vine. To get it, the heroes must stand on said platform, and wait until it slowly collapses. When the coin is obtained, the players must quickly perform a walljump to go back to the land and avoid falling into the cliff.
The Magician at the entrance of the area introduces the players the Pinch to zoom function, which might help the players find the relics easier. The second one is found underwater next to the platform on the right.
Finally the team must defeat four moving Psychlopses guarding the last Electoon cage by using the geyser provided for them. After doing so and breaking the cage the photoboard will appear and the level will end, taking them to where the Magician watches the rising amount of Lums that were collected in the level.
