Magma Moat, or Peach's Castle-1, is the first course of Peach's Castle. It is unlocked from completing Bowser Jr. Showdown and its own completion unlocks Magmaw River Cruise. It has a secret exit that leads to Firefall Rising.


The player starts off behind a stone wall. They will approach some platforms moving up and down. More moving platforms will appear, along with a Red Ring. Afterward, Brick Blocks will appear with the second Star Coin in between them. After more Brick Blocks and a few platforms, the player will reach the Goal Pole.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: Near the beginning, the player must use a Koopa Shell to grab it.
  • Star Coin 2: After the fourth Koopa Troopa, the player must Wall Jump in between Brick Blocks to get it.
  • Star Coin 3: Near the end, hop on top of the Brick Blocks to make the Star Coin appear.

Secret exit[edit]

When the player encounters the Brick Blocks above them, they should wait for the Meteors to break them. Then, the player must use the remaining blocks to go to the far right. The player will be in a hidden area with a Warp Pipe. Going through it will lead them to the secret flagpole. This will access Firefall Rising.

Luigi Sighting[edit]

  • There is a statue of Luigi taking off his hat at the secret flagpole.
