Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: Near the start of the level, this Star Coin will be in plain sight over some Koopa Paratroopas, and under some Tightropes. Get on the Tightropes above it, then stay in one place until you fall. Then carefully jump across the Koopa Paratroopas, grab the Star Coin, and then make it back on top of the Tightropes
  • Star Coin 2: Right after the checkpoint, there'll be a Warp Pipe hidden at the bottom of the screen. Fall through the Tightropes above it, then enter it. It'll lead you to an area with many Bullet Bills, and a massive gap. Carefully use the Bullet Bills to clear the gap, and you'll reach the second Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: Once you reach the ending Warp Pipe, keep going right. This'll lead you straight to the third and final Star Coin.
