A Flying Platform[1] is a type of lift in Super Mario World. It is composed of three gray Rotating Blocks that cannot spin with wings, the same ones ridden by Amazing Flyin' Hammer Brothers, except their platforms have only two Rotating Blocks. Two Flying Platforms appear in the Forest Secret Area. When Mario or Luigi jumps onto one of them, they begin moving to the right, both ascending and descending alternately. The Flying Platforms carry him all the way to the Giant Gate without stopping.
