Impossible Pendulums, or Superstar Road-8, is the eighth level in the ninth world of New Super Luigi U, Superstar Road. It can be accessed upon collecting all the Star Coins in Peach's Castle.


Luigi starts on a platform with the level background very similar to that of The Final Battle. A few platforms and several rotating Spinner pendulums are just ahead along with some ? Blocks. After the first Star Coin and a swinging pendulum, more swinging pendulums and a Red Ring will appear. The second Star Coin and more pendulums are ahead. Afterwards, a Stone Buzzy and a pendulum appear just before the Warp Pipe which will transport the player to rotating pendulums, the third Star Coin and the Goal Pole.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: Near the beginning, the player needs to jump over the first swaying pendulum and land on the platform with the first Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 2: After the Red Ring, the player needs to drop down to the platform in the middle to receive the second Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: After going through the Warp Pipe, the Star Coin will be rotating in sync with the pendulums.

Luigi Sighting[edit]

At the last Spinner inside the castle, the player needs to head down to the bottom right corner to find an 8-bit Luigi in a secret area.
