Bramball Woods, or Soda Jungle-3, is the third course of Soda Jungle in New Super Mario Bros. U. It is unlocked via completion of Jungle of the Giants and its own completion unlocks Snake Block Tower and a green Toad House.


Like the previous levels, it is forest-themed, though it uses a darker and foggy version of the default background. This is the only level in the game to feature Bramballs.

The level begins near a Mega Block and a Bramball on a platform. When the Bramball is approached, rows of Brick Blocks and a ? Block containing a power-up appear. Another Bramball and appearing rows of Brick Blocks follow. A Bramball is found above a Mega Block, and it can be used to reach a Warp Pipe leading to an area with coins and a ? Block. More Bramballs are found, along with a Brick Block structure. The Checkpoint Flag can then be found. Rows of Donut Block, a Mega Block, and some Stalking Piranha Plant are found. A Bramball with a Green Ring under it are found, alon with more Stalking Piranha Plants. More Bramballs follow, as well as a Mega Block containing a power-up. Another structure of Donut Blocks with Bramballs on it is then encountered. At the end of the area a Warp Pipe and a Mini Warp Pipe are found. Both Warp Pipes lead to the area with the Goal Pole, where a Bramball is located, with the Mini Warp Pipe leading to a platform higher up in the area.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: The first Star Coin is visible between two structures of Brick Blocks, found just after the first Warp Pipe of the level.
  • Star Coin 2: Shortly after the first Star Coin and right before the Checkpoint Flag, the second Star Coin is hidden in a wall to the right of the Bramball.
  • Star Coin 3: Below a Donut Block structure, the third Star Coin is found guarded by a Bramball.
