Flight of the Para-Beetles, or Soda Jungle-NSMBU Parabeetle Icon.png, is the secret course of Soda Jungle in New Super Mario Bros. U. It is unlocked via secret exit in Which-Way Labyrinth and its own completion skips Rock-Candy Mines and unlocks Land of the Flying Blocks.


The course takes place in the sky, and besides the occasional sky bridge and Blocks, the only platforms are Para-Beetles and Heavy Para-Beetles. King Bills make their only appearance halfway through the course to attack the player. If the player lands on seven different Para-Beetles or Heavy Para-Beetles in a row without landing on anything else, they are granted a 1-Up Mushroom.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: The first Star Coin is found in mid-air, after a series of Para-Beetles.
  • Star Coin 2: As with the first Star Coin, the second Star Coin is found in mid-air.
  • Star Coin 3: The red Warp Pipe at the end of the first section leads to an alternate pathway where the third Star Coin resides. The player must use a nearby Para-Beetle as a platform in order to enter the pipe.
