World 3-1 is a level from World 3 which appears in New Super Mario Bros. Wii.


The level starts in a snowy area with Cooligans sliding in Mario's direction. The next part contains bumpy ice platforms, Piranha Plants and Paratroopas. Then Mario explores a small part with giant ice walls. After entering in a pipe, Mario will see a long slippery track and can slide on it with a Penguin Suit until he reaches the Flagpole, and a Penguin Suit is required for all three Star Coins.


The level starts with ? Blocks and Cooligans coming towards the players from the right. Past the Cooligans are bumpy ice platforms along with two Piranha Plants and a ? Block containing a Penguin Suit. Past this area are Koopa Troopas and more Cooligans, along with the midway point and a Warp Pipe. The Warp Pipe leads to a new area with a Red Ring and another ? Block containing a Penguin Suit. The players can slide along an icy roller coaster-like track using the Penguin Suit to collect the Red Coins and reach the flagpole while jumping to avoid more Cooligans and Koopa Troopas.


Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: After the first two Green Pipes from which Piranha Plants emerge, Mario and co. should penguin slide on the ice and will crash through some Brick Blocks, finally sliding into the first Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 2: To the right of the Checkpoint Flag are two routes, the bottom one housing the second Star Coin. Mario and co. should freeze the Piranha Plant that emerges from the Green Pipe, then use it to land on after jumping to the Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: Not too far from the exit Pipe that leads from the previous area is a Green Pipe blocked off by two Brick Blocks. Mario and co. should penguin slide through these Brick Blocks and enter the Pipe, which leads to an area with a Yellow Pipe from which Cooligans emerge. Mario and co. should freeze an incoming Cooligan, get on it, ride it to the pit, then jump up to both the third Star Coin and safety.
