In-game description

Graceful Glide is a Special Challenge from New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe.


This challenge is an original level, resembling levels from Acorn Plains. Flying Squirrel Mario must jump on Goombrats in order to get 1-Ups and avoid touching the ground. Munchers are present in some areas as well. Just before the Goal Pole, there is a long gap and a red Paratroopa. 100 seconds are given to the player to complete this level. If the player touches the ground or lose the flying squirrel power-up, the challenge will end in failure.




  • Gold Medal: 5-Up
  • Silver Medal: 1-Up
