The Macro Zone is one of the areas in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. It features four stages and one hidden stage. However, including the hidden stage, only three stages are needed to complete the area. The Macro Zone consists of a house and its surrounding yard. The twist is that Mario is shrunk to ant-size. Stage one features the outside and inside of an anthill, and all the enemies in it are different types of ants. Stage two takes place in the plumbing of the house and features enemies such as Cheep Cheeps and Blurps. Stage three takes place in the kitchen and fireplace, featuring enemies from the earlier two stages as well as ant-sized Goombas. Stage four takes place in the attic. The boss of Stage 4 is a rat. The hidden stage, accessed from Stage one, takes place in the sky near the attic. Mario must acquire the Fire Flower in order to access the hidden stage. Once Mario completes this stage, he may skip the second and third stages and proceed directly to the fourth stage.

The word macro means large-scaled; and, according to Nintendo Power, Mario becomes "Micro Mario"[1] to access it, thus, the stages are large-scaled, in relation to Mario's size.
