Flip Panels (also known as Snake Panels) are objects which make their debut in the Nintendo 3DS game Super Mario 3D Land. When the green "!" button is pressed, they create several connected green panels with faces that help Mario cross large gaps or hazardous elements, similar to Snake Blocks. After a certain time, these panels will turn dark green, open their mouths, and start to disappear. When all panels disappear, the player can step on the "!" button to create the Flip Panels again.
Flip Panels reappear in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, having the same function that they do in Super Mario 3D Land. The green "!" button that produces the panels will now turn orange if the player press it. Flip Panels appear in Flip Panel Footpath, Secret of the Golden Realm and Mummy-Me on Flip Panel Footpath.
