In-game description
Mario in Express Elevator

Express Elevator is a Special Challenge in New Super Mario Bros. U. Similarly to the Elevator Out of Service challenge, this one is played at Red-Hot Elevator Ride, a level in Peach's Castle.


The player, in Mario's ice form, starts the level at the second room of the regular level. In order to win, they should avoid allowing any coins or enemies ride the elevator. If they do so or lose the ice form, the challenge ends in failure. To prevent this from happening, the player should collect the parachuting coins and freeze the Parabombs.
