Fossil Tunnel (or World 2-A) is the only alternate level of Rubble Ruins in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. It takes place in a cave with many Spine Coasters and Dry Bones.

Fossil Tunnel is unlocked by completing the secret exit of Barrelband Wilds. Completing it will unlock Pyramid Castle.

Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: In the first green underground Warp Pipe, ride the Spine Coaster all the way until the end to grab it.
  • Star Coin 2: Upon reaching the point where the player must switch Spine Coasters, jump onto the middle coaster to get the Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: Ride the last Spine Coaster all the way to the end, even when it goes into pits, and the Star Coin will be there.

Trivia

  • If the player has a Propeller Suit active upon entering Fossil Tunnel, they're able to skip the entire underground section by flying over the ground above the starting Warp Pipe. Running across the top will reveal some coins and eventually lead to the level's Goal Pole area without having done any of the actual level.
