A Quick Dip in the Sky, or Meringue Clouds-5, is the fifth level of Meringue Clouds in New Super Mario Bros. U. It is unlocked via completion of Spinning Spirit House and its own completion unlocks Snaking above Mist Valley.


This course takes place in a cliff. The first area is inhabited by many red Koopa Troopas. The second area has two circling Water Balls surrounding a small piece of land and two Big Piranha Plants. After the Checkpoint Flag, Mario must climb many Giant Bubbles while facing Piranha Plants and Fuzzies. At the very top, there is a Warp Pipe. Entering it, the player is taken to the Goal Pole zone, where a single Koopa Paratroopa can be seen.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: Before the Checkpoint Flag, the first Star Coin can be seen moving around the Big Piranha Plants. The player must defeat them to obtain it.
  • Star Coin 2: The second Star Coin is found under a group of Koopa Paratroopas, inside a fake wall.
  • Star Coin 3: The third Star Coin is between two Fuzzies in the last section before the Goal Pole.
