Then, the player finds two platforms that are connected together, and falls if he or she is standing on them. Then comes another moving platform and Koopa Paratroopa. The player has to make another huge jump, except this time, the player must bounce off the Koopa Paratroopa so that he or she makes it to the platform which has coins on it. The player then finds another trampoline, along with coins and another moving platform. A lone ? Block under the moving platform contains a power-up.
