Crystalfrost Tower (or World 5-Towernsmbw.png) is the tower and the sixth level of Freezeflame Glacier in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. It takes place in a snow-covered tower filled with Skewers and Dry Bones. Pyro and Cryo are fought at its top.

Crystalfrost Tower is unlocked by completing Frosty Highlands or the normal exit of Snowfall Peak. Completing it will unlock Molten Icelifts.


Boss Battle

Pyro and Cryo will both hop out of their water or lava pools like normal bubbles, thus beginning the fight. Kamek will automatically provide Mario a Yoshi to use. Pyro will shoot fireballs, while Cryo will shoot ice balls. You must use the Yoshi to swallow either a fire or ice ball, and spit it at the opposite element, for example, iceballs at Pyro, and fireballs at Cryo. Additionally, you can use powerups to attack them. The damaged bubble will shrink in side. You must take either Pyro or Cryo down three times. When one of them dissolve, the remaining Bubble will run away, ending the battle.

Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: Not too far into the level, this Star Coin will be in plain sight over some Skewers. Carefully jump to get it.
  • Star Coin 2: A Propeller Suit, which can be used before the level, is needed for this Star Coin. After the checkpoint, this Star Coin will be over some Skewers. Carefully fly up to it to get it.
  • Star Coin 3: Near the end, this Star Coin will be in plain sight. Quickly grab onto the ledge it is under and go towards it.
