Mario starts on a wooden platform and must cross a pair of three Beat Blocks divided by a wooden platform to reach another wooden platform with a door on it. Through the door is a large wooden platform, followed by Beat Blocks and another door. Outside are some more Beat Blocks, followed by a series of wooden platforms and some vertical climbing Beat Blocks. After this are some curving Beat Blocks divided by a wooden platform, as well as needing to pass by two Firebars. Next are some more Beat Blocks with chained spiked cylinders to obstruct Mario.

This level is designed after World 7-4. Mario begins on a grate-like platform and must cross over several rotating gear platforms, one of which containing two Bob-ombs. Additionally, when Mario reaches some of them, Tail Bob-ombs descent from the air. After reaching the final gear platform, Mario must jump onto a swinging platform, then climb up a pole to get onto a rotating platform that the player can use to reach one of three paths. To get to a Warp Box, the player must take the third path, which contains several Fuzzies. The Warp Box takes Mario to a gear platform with the Checkpoint Flag on it. The first gear platform after that has a Magikoopa on it, and jumping on the three after that results in a Tail Bob-omb falling from above. The player must then cross several yellow, rotating platforms with a Monty Mole in the center.
