Cloudbolt Chasm (or World 7-4) is the sixth level of Cirrus Heavens in Newer Super Mario Bros. DS. It takes place within an autoscrolling thunderstorm introducing the Thunder Cloud.

Cloudbolt Chasm is unlocked by completing Skewerspring Tower. Completing its normal exit will unlock Gigantic Gardens, and completing its secret exit will unlock Stormeye Stronghold. Alternatively, Cloudbolt Chasm can be accessed through a shortcut by completing the normal exit of Spiny Swings, though it would have already been completed.


Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: This star coin is surrounded by indestructible Wood Blocks. Let the thunder cloud above you zap the wood blocks, opening up the way to the first Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 2: Also located right under indestructible wood blocks, let the thunder cloud zap the wood blocks again to open up way to the Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: Throw fireballs at the Piranha Plant (Or Throw a Koopa Shell from Koopa Troopa or Koopa Paratroopa if nearby) blocking a yellow Warp Pipe, then enter it to find not only the third and final Star Coin, but the secret exit as well.

Secret exit

See the instructions for the third Star Coin. The secret exit comes within the third Star Coin room.
