Switchboard Falls is a level of World 3 in Super Mario 3D World.


It is unlocked via completion of Pipeline Lagoon, and its own completion unlocks The Bullet Bill Express.


The level starts with the player on a Switchboard which leads to an area with another one and a Switch Block, which when hit changes the direction of the tracks and allows the player to move on to the next area. Here, the player must hit the Switch Block and avoid the nearby Fuzzler in order to move on to an area with some Fizzlits and the Checkpoint Flag. A nearby Switchboard network leads the player to an area behind the waterfall where they need to hop on another Switchboard and pass another Switch Block network infested by Fuzzlers. After passing this area, the player reaches the Goal Pole.

Green Stars

  • Green Star 1: When riding the second Switchboard that goes downhill, jump on the bridge that can be leap to a pipe. Once in the pipe, fall down in the middle of the room to get the star.
  • Green Star 2: After going in the waterfall, jump down to the switchboard and reveal the left side. Once you have, go on it and duck to go under the low-hanging barrier to get the star.
  • Green Star 3: When reaching the multi-path near the end, keep on heading right while making a small jump over the Fuzzler to get the star without taking any damage.

After the third green star, go to the next switchboard towards the left and ride that platform towards the right to get the sting by stamp.

Luigi sighting

If the player uses an Sprixie's binoculars, an 8-bit Luigi can be seen standing on top of a waterfall. There is also a faint one on the ground near the left wall after the checkpoint.
