At the beginning of the level, there are many Spikes. Then, there is a P switch to lower a Spike. There are also some barrels to roll them over. After encountering spinies, Mario willl go on a platform with many Koopa Troopas. Then, there is a sand pit and a checkpoint. Continuing will take Mario to a place with a Spike and some barrels. Continuing will take Mario to another platform, some brick blocks, and a Spike. Then, Mario will go see a pipe and more platforms. Mario will then encounter more sets of Spikes, floating platforms, and see a mini-pipe. Later, there is one Spike standing on a floating platform next to the flagpole.
- Star Coin 1: Before the checkpoint, there is a sand pit. Fall into the sand pit and hit the P switch to go down. Then, go through the pipe and hit the switch to make floating platforms. Avoid the spikes to get the coin.
- Star Coin 2: On the first floating platform after the checkpoint, there are brick blocks. Hit the brick block on the left from underneath to make a beanstalk. In the bonus area, find a POW block and drop it when you see the star coin right above you.
- Star Coin 3: Mario needs to get a Mini-Mushroom to go through the Mini-Pipe. In there, Mario can get the star coin.
