All eight of the course's Red Coins are located on the sliding puzzle platforms of Bowser. From the start of the level, the player has to take the two left paths and continue onward until they reach the puzzle. The puzzle platforms are constantly sliding around, forming and unforming the image of Bowser on the puzzle. The player has to collect the eight Red Coins on these moving platforms. Upon the player doing so, the Power Star appears at the nearby Star Marker.
