World 5-2, is the twenty-fourth level of Super Mario 3D Land.
The level features several top-down rooms in a maze-like pattern, filled with traps, lava pits, and enemies. The first few rooms lead in a straight path, featuring spiked bars and Spinies. Upon reaching a circular room with a spinning spiked bar, Mario will find the level's Checkpoint by going up. At the end of this next room, there is a Question Block that will send Mario into a brief bonus level to try obtain a Star Medal. Following this room is one with a long spiked bar that moves at a fast pace. Past here, Mario finds the last room of the level. This room holds a doorway leading to the Flagpole of the level.
