  • Star Coin 2: Enter the green Warp Pipe above a Pokey, either by killing the Pokey to spawn platforms or using a Propeller Suit. This will lead you to a room with multiple Propeller Blocks. Use the blocks or your Propeller Suit to get the Star Coin at the very end of the bonus room.
  • Star Coin 3: Right after the entrance to the secret room containing the Star Coin there are two quicksand pit with a downwards arrow to the right of it made out of blocks. Sink through the second quicksand pit, and you will enter a secret room with the third and final Star Coin.
