Above the Cheep Cheep Seas, or Sparkling Waters-3, is the third course of Sparkling Waters in New Super Mario Bros. U. It is unlocked via completion of Haunted Shipwreck, and its own completion unlocks Dragoneel's Undersea Grotto.


The level begins near a ? Block. A Scale Lift is above a pit of water containing Cheep Cheeps, and next to a tall Water Geyser, which takes the player into another area. The more ? Blocks are found, the second of which contains Yoshi. Another Scale Lift is then found. Cheep Cheeps then begin to jump out of the water in an area leading to more Scale Lifts, ? Blocks, and some fruits. Donut Block platforms with Brick Blocks above them are found, followed by a platform with the Checkpoint Flag on it. An area below the checkpoint has a ? Block, some Donut Blocks, and a Water Geyser. After more ? Blocks and Water Geysers, a Green Ring appears above Donut Blocks. A Water Geyser leading to a group of Scale Lifts is found, and a ? Block is found above a bush containing two berries. A ? Block is found, along with large Water Geysers and a large group of jumping Cheep Cheeps. The Goal Pole is then found.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: The first Star Coin can be found on a floor of Donut Blocks.
  • Star Coin 2: Underneath a platform, the second Star Coin is periodically guarded by a Water Geyser.
  • Star Coin 3: Beneath a grass platform, a Warp Pipe that leads to the area with the third Star Coin can be found.
