Cloud Cruising is the aerial level 3-1 in Yoshi's Story. In this level, the Yoshi must ride on snakes that climb higher and higher into the sky. Also in the level is a friendly green dragon that the Yoshi can ride while it curves up and down. Big Flying Shy Guys fly around directly in front of the "pathways", trying to hit Yoshi. Cloud N. Candy is fought at the end of this stage.

The hidden Heart Coin letter for this stage is S.


The level starts with a blue snake Yoshi can ride. Over to the right, there is a small section with Shy Guys, but the level continues with another blue snake that leads to some cloud platforms where a pink snake can be found. This one goes upwards, to another pink snake that also goes up, where a third one brings Yoshi to some cloud platforms. A blue snake there will zigzag through the sky to a vase, through a section where Flying Shy Guys are found.

The vase warps Yoshi to a section with more Flying Shy Guys and then, through another vase, Yoshi reaches a section with a green dragon. At the end of the dragon's path, there is a vase that brings Yoshi back to the beginning of the level. Before riding the dragon, Yoshi can enter a red pipe that brings him to a section with many small cloud platforms and Poochy.

Storybook segment[edit]

As the Yoshis were walking, they found a trail of clouds that led to the sky. The Yoshis were afraid of falling, but they walked on the clouds anyway. Up in the sky, they met Cloud N. Candy, who was mean, but tasted sweet.

  • The level 7-3 in World 7 of New Super Mario Bros. is partly comparable to Cloud Cruising, as one section has an area where Mario rides on a giant Wiggler, similar to the area where the Yoshi rides on the dragon.
