Spinning Platforms of Doom, is the fifth level of Superstar Road in New Super Mario Bros. U. It is unlocked when the player collects every Star Coin in Soda Jungle. This level appears to be based off of Painted Swampland.


The course's design is based off of Painted Swampland, and it begins near a Warp Pipe and a ? Block. A group of four moving platforms that simultaneously spin in a circle is found, with a ? Block in the center. The player must ride it above Poisoned Water. At the end of the track, two vines are found above the poison. A platform is the found, with Circling Boo Buddies in the middle. More Warp Pipes are found, some of which have Piranha Plants in them. A ? Block is found above one of them. A group of two spinning platforms is found on a track, surrounded by Circling Boo Buddies. The player then reaches a ground platform, where some Brick Blocks, coins, and a Piranha Plant are found. The player must then ride across a swinging platform on a track, which leads to the Goal Pole.

Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: The first Star Coin is located between two platforms surrounded by Circling Boo Buddies. The player needs a Super Acorn (or Peachette in New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe) to reach this.
  • Star Coin 2: The second Star Coin is found in between two spinning platforms that the player must ride.
  • Star Coin 3: The third Star Coin is found in a secret area, accessed by entering a hidden blue Warp Pipe found in a wall beneath a Warp Pipe with a Piranha Plant in it. The player must ride across two platforms of tracks to collect the Star Coin.
