The Lily Pad Ride

The Lily Pad Ride[1], also called Pipe Down #3[2], is a secret level that is accessible only through a Warp Pipe located on the southeast island in Delfino Plaza in the game Super Mario Sunshine. The pipe is blocked by an Orange Juice Generator, so to get inside, Mario must ride Yoshi and jump across several boats to get to the island.

Mario and F.L.U.D.D. in Lily Pad Ride

In this secret area, Mario must ride a lily pad across a poisonous river, collecting eight Red Coins along the way. If Mario lands in the water, he instantly loses a life. The lily pad that Mario is on slowly rots away over time, eventually disappearing.

If Mario reaches the end of the area but fails to get all eight Red Coins, he can walk on the sides of the river to try to get back to the starting point and get on the lily pad again.

There is a pipe at the end of the river which takes Mario back to Delfino Plaza, but the player must repeat the steps taken to get to the level.
