Donut Plains 3 is a level in the game Super Mario World and is the third level of the second world, Donut Plains. This level, taking place above a mushroom forest, is filled with several kinds of platforms and it is also the first level to feature ON/OFF Switches.


The player starts out next to a set of spinning platforms. After getting through, the player comes to an area with Koopa Troopas and Koopa Paratroopas. There are also some Rotating Blocks under the player. If the player is not Small Mario or Small Luigi, they can break the blocks with a Spin Jump. One of the Rotating Blocks contains a Beanstalk that leads up to an area with cloud platforms and coins. Up ahead are ON/OFF Switches that the player must use to change the path of a line guided platform to avoid falling into the pit below them. The platform leads the player to the Midway Gate. Past the gate, Fuzzies will start appearing on lines, often while the player is riding a platform on the same line After several more platforms, the player hops on one last platform with a Bonus Block nearby, which guides the player to the Giant Gate.

Secret Area[edit]

In the second half of the level, the player can use a moving platform to reach a yellow Warp Pipe. This pipe takes them to a bonus game where they can win up to five lives by hitting ? Blocks in the correct order.
