Thrilling Spine Coaster is the sixth level of Rock-Candy Mines in New Super Mario Bros. U.


It is unlocked via secret exit in Grinding-Stone Tower, and its own completion opens the path to Screwtop Tower.


The level begins in a dark underground section on a platform that leads to a Bonecoaster. A small pipe is found at the beginning of the level, leading to an area with coins and a Brick Block containing a 1-Up Mushroom. The Bonecoaster travels along a track above a pit of poison. A Swooper is found, followed by a Red Ring. A ? Switch is found, causing blocks to appear under rows of coins. A ? Block containing a Starman can also be found. The Bonecoaster then travels through a section with a low ceiling and some Spike Tops. Another ? Block containing a Super Star is found, followed by a section where the Bonecoaster repeatedly dips into the poison. A Warp Pipe is found, leading above ground. Another Bonecoaster is found, leading to the Goal Pole.
