Switch Shift Grove is unlocked by completing the normal exit of Rainshed Pond. Completing its normal exit will unlock Creepcrack Castle and Challenge House A, and completing its secret exit will unlock Yellow Switch Palace.


Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: After hitting the third ? Switch by going through the green Warp Pipes, follow the coins to your left, then jump up and enter a yellow Warp Pipe. Upon entering, hit the ? Switch to make a Big Spiked Ball fall onto the Tilt Lift nearby, then do a running jump over the Big Spiked Ball and onto the Tilt Lift. Finally, tilt the Tilt Lift so that the big Spiked Ball can demolish the Brick Blocks guarding the Star Coin, and grab it.
  • Star Coin 2: You'll need to be Super Mario or up to get this Star Coin. After you defeat the Piranha Plants, go into the tall Yellow Warp Pipe before the checkpoint. Upon entering, slide down the wall and get the Star Coin with a few wall jumps. Alternatively, by utilizing the Propeller Suit, you can slip through the Green Pipe in front of the Piranha Plants, and fly upwards to reach the Yellow Pipe.
  • Star Coin 3: Take the only Springboard for some time. Once the Star Coin is reached, set down the Springboard and bounce off of it to get the final Star Coin.

Secret Exit

Avoid hitting the second ? Switch after the checkpoint in order to access a green Warp Pipe. If successful, the secret exit will provide access to the Yellow Switch Palace.
