Molten Airship (or World 8-4) is the fifth level of Koopa Planet in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. It takes place on a ground-level airship with dangerous wavy lava.

Molten Airship is unlocked by completing Factory Tower. Completing it will unlock Bowser's Castle.


This level looks no more than a usual airship. However, there is also wavy lava, the only level in the entire game to feature this mechanic, and the airship appears to be at ground-level in a lava pool. It features the usual airship enemies, such as Mechakoopas and Ricky Wrenches. Just like Jet Airship, there is no boss at the end of the level.

Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: At the first screw, spin it until it fully raises the metal block. Stand on the last block but avoid the wavy lava, and enter the Warp Pipe when it is safe to enter. This should lead to an indoor section with the first Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 2: Not long after the checkpoint, use the series of spinning wheels to reach the Star Coin. If you have the Yellow Switch Palace activated, you can grab this Star Coin without worrying about falling.
  • Star Coin 3: Immediately after the second Star Coin, go below the Bob-omb section when the lava is out of the way and run to the right to enter a hidden Warp Pipe. This should lead to another indoor section with wavy lava as well. Use the fences to progress through the section, then safely go down at the last fence and spin the screw to roll down a platform, so you can reach the third and final Star Coin and the exit as well.
