Bridge over Poisoned Waters, or Soda Jungle-2, is the second level of Soda Jungle in New Super Mario Bros. U. It is unlocked via completion of Jungle of the Giants and its own completion opens a path to Snake Block Tower. This level is also used in the challenge Poison-Swamp Scramble.


Mario begins the level near a Mega ? Block with a Koopa Troopa on it. Some coins jumping out of the poison at the bottom of the course are found, along with a log that spins when the player lands on it. A platform with two ? Blocks above it is found, followed by another log with a Koopa Troopa on a platform in the middle. A Koopa Paratroopa is found in front of a log, which is followed by a Koopa Troopa and two Warp Pipes spawning Goombas. Another Goomba is found on a platform, followed by a few more logs. Some more Koopa Troopas are found, one of which is found on a group of Brick Blocks that move over a pit of poison. A Koopa Paratroopa flies over a log, and the Checkpoint Flag is then found on a ground platform. Three Big Blocks are found, along with a pit of poison with coins jumping out of it. A Mega ? Block and four regular ? Blocks are found above a log near a Koopa Troopa. A bridge made out of Brick Blocks that come out of the poison, then go back into it, are found. A platform with a Koopa Troopa and a Mega ? Block on it is found in the air. Moving Brick Blocks are found, along with a platform with a Goomba, a Koopa Troopa, and Big Blocks. Brick Block platforms that move horizontally are found, and a Red Ring floats above them. Koopa Troopas, a Koopa Paratroopa, and another log are found, followed by a path leading to the Goal Pole.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: Star Coin 1 can be seen early in the level. To obtain it, the player must carefully cross the spinning log without falling off.
  • Star Coin 2: There is a high Warp Pipe near the middle of the level. To reach it, the player must jump under the Coins to reveal some invisible ? Blocks. This will allow Mario to reach the pipe. Inside, the left ? Block contains a P Switch. The player should press it and then use the new Brick Blocks to reach Star Coin 2.
  • Star Coin 3: After the Checkpoint Flag, the player will have to carefully maneuver across some Brick Blocks. While crossing them, the third Star Coin will randomly appear and disappear. The player should carefully jump to grab it.

Secret exit[edit]

This level also contains a secret exit. However, the player will need to find a Super Acorn elsewhere in the level. To reach the secret exit, the player must throw a Koopa Troopa's shell into the Brick Block near the end of the level. This will reveal a Beanstalk which leads to the skies. The player must climb up the ledges on the left and use the Super Acorn to fly across the gap. The Red Flagpole is here. This will reveal a shortcut made of Big Blocks to Seesaw Bridge and Wiggler Stampede, skipping the haunted forest area of Soda Jungle.
