Magma Moat, or Peach's Castle-1, is the first course of Peach's Castle in New Super Luigi U. 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 level begins behind a stone wall, with a platform overhead. Meteors fall from the sky throughout the level. Some platforms moving up and down are found, with the middle platform dipping into the lava. More moving platforms will appear, along with a Red Ring. Another section of the ground with a platform overhead is found, followed by more moving platforms and a Red Ring. Another stationary platform is found, and is followed by more moving platforms and structures of Brick Blocks. More stationary platforms follow, with a row of Brick Blocks above. Another section with a moving platform and Brick Block structures is found, leading up to the Goal Pole.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: The first Star Coin is found near the beginning of the level in the lava, and 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 the second Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: Near the end of the level, a structure of Brick Blocks must be jumped on to make the third 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.
