Volcano Rapids (or World 8-6) is the second level of Koopa Core in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. It is a lava-filled cavern with a raft ride through several poison clouds.

Volcano Rapids is unlocked by completing Underground Railroad. Completing it will unlock Magmaworks Factory.


This level takes place near a volcano. There is lava throughout the entire level, and the level is based on riding a boat through the lava lake. There is a lot of poisonous smoke that Although a light is attached to the boat, it is for cosmetics only as the area is already lit up enough. Just like the majority of the levels in this world, this level has an underground iron factory setting. There are sets of lasers that destroy certain blocks in order to drop objects on the raft.

Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: At the start of the level, spin jump to fend off the poisonous smoke. Use the Question Blocks to your advantage so you can reach the Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 2: After the checkpoint should be a series of lasers that cause a POW block to drop on the raft. When you reach the next iron block, throw the POW block on the raft or the iron block, but not in the lava, to let the Star Coin fall on the iron block.
  • Star Coin 3: Immediately after the second Star Coin is a set of two lasers. The first one will drop a large iron block, while the second one will drop a small iron block. Let the blocks drop on the raft. When you see the Star Coin, use the iron blocks on the raft to reach the Star Coin.
