Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: Once on the tank with the #1 next to a Bowser symbol, either bounce off the Rocky Wrench, a cannonball or use a Propeller Suit to reach it.
  • Star Coin 2: After the Checkpoint, use the cannonballs or a Propeller Suit to reach it.
  • Star Coin 3: At the end of the level, before taking the cannon to the airship, drop down and you will find the Star Coin.

  • This level's musical theme comes from the Bowser's Road theme from Super Mario 64, with the first five seconds cut off.
