Another Huckit Crab follows, and is located on top of a Waterspouts. A section of the level above a pool of water follows, with Waterspouts and Warp Pipes acting as platforms. A ? Block containing a power-up is found above a pair of Waterspouts. A Huckit Crab is found on a Warp Pipe, and is followed by Waterspouts with Piranha Plant in between them. A section of ground with a Huckit Crab and a ? Block above palm trees follows. Bridge platforms and Waterspouts are used to cross the water, and a Red Ring is located above one of the Waterspouts. A row of Waterspouts with Piranha Plants is followed by the Checkpoint Flag. More Waterspouts and Huckit Crabs are located past the Checkpoint Flag. A Warp Pipe leads to an area containing a Clampy with a 1-Up Mushroom in its mouth. More Waterspouts and Piranha Plants are found in the section leading to the Goal Pole.

Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: In plain sight, players should jump off a Waterspouts to reach the first Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 2: Shortly after the first Star Coin, players should freeze a Huckit Crab with the Ice Flower and toss it through the Waterspouts to reach the second Star Coin. Otherwise, players can freeze a nearby Cheep Cheep and use it as a platform to reach it.
  • Star Coin 3: Players should use the POW Block when the Waterspouts rise to safely collect the third Star Coin.
