“The entrance to Pinna Park is...Aww, you know it, don't you!”
Noki, Super Mario Sunshine

Pinna Park is a large amusement park island found in Super Mario Sunshine, the overall island being known as Pinna Island. It is located just off the coast of Isle Delfino's mainland, and forms the "tail fin" of the dolphin-shaped island, hence its name: "pinna" is the Italian term for "fin" (additionally, a yellow Toad near the cannon leading to the island claims the island is called "the pineapple": "pinna" being a pun on "piña", the Spanish word for pineapple).

This level is unlocked after a total of ten Shine Sprites have been collected, after which Mario can access Pinna Park by using a cannon found in the northwest corner of Delfino Plaza. A single boat sits in the water at the level access point, but it cannot be used by the player. Looking toward Pinna Park from Pianta Village during one of the episodes that takes place at night, the player can see that it is lit up, revealing that the park remains open at night.

Pinna Park is unique in that it is one of two locations on Isle Delfino that is never covered in Graffiti, the other being Gelato Beach. Pinna Park is also unique in that it is the only location in the game where Yoshi is available in all 8 episodes after being unlocked. In addition, it is the only location that contains two Yoshi Eggs, one in the park and one on the beach (although the one found in the park is only available during Episode 6).

Outside of Super Mario Sunshine, Pinna Park makes a cameo in the background of the Delfino Plaza stage in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

Pinna Island is split between two locations: a beach and a theme park. The beach runs along the eastern coast of the island, has several palm trees, and is home to the Great Sunflower and the Sunflower Kids. The sand will also reveal several Yellow Coins, Blue Coins, and Fruit if the player sprays along it. During Episode 2, a Monty Mole firing Bullet Bills will be placed on the far side of the beach, and during Episode 4, several Snooze-A-Koopas will be placed near the sunflowers. Also during both Episodes 2 and 4, the entrance to Pinna Park will be closed off.

Upon entering the park itself, the entrance will be closed, preventing the player from going back to the beach. Pinna Park is made up of five rides, four of which must be used to obtain a Shine Sprite in a specific episode. Several of these rides make an appearance in the Isle Delfino welcome video during Super Mario Sunshine's intro sequence.

Clam Cups[edit]

The Spinning Shells are on the right near the entrance, and have different kinds of shells spinning around in circles. Spraying the clams will open them up, with the green one containing a Blue Coin. It seems to gain a lot of popularity in Episode 7.

Ferris Wheel[edit]

Overview of the Ferris Wheel seen in Episode 5.

The Ferris Wheel is featured in Episode 5: The Runaway Ferris Wheel. This ride is in the back of the park. In Episode 5, the Ferris Wheel spins extremely fast, and Mario must climb up to the Ferris Wheel to make it go back to normal. Mario also has to ride on the Ferris Wheel to the top to get the Shine Sprite.


Pirate Ships[edit]

The Pirate Ships as seen in Episode 3.

The Pirate Ships are featured in Episode 3: Red Coins of the Pirate Ships. They are on the right side of the park, behind the clam cups. They start by swaying gently, then swing in a full circle every third full swing. In Episode 3, the Pirate Ships have Red Coins on them, and Mario has to collect all eight of them to find a Shine Sprite.

Roller Coaster[edit]

The Roller Coaster is featured in Episode 1: Mecha-Bowser Appears! and Episode 8: Roller Coaster Balloons. The track of the roller coaster goes all over the park, and has Water Rockets placed at regular intervals. Mario cannot get on the roller coaster cars normally, so he must speak to the operator to get on. In Episode 1, Mario must ride on the roller coaster while shooting Water Rockets at Mecha-Bowser and destroying the Bullet Bills. In Episode 8, Mario must ride on the roller coaster and shoot Water Rockets at the twenty Bowser Jr.-shaped balloons floating around the park.

Yoshi-Go-Round[edit]

The Yoshi-Go-Round as seen in Episode 6.

The Yoshi-Go-Round is featured in Episode 6: The Yoshi-Go-Round's Secret. The Yoshi-Go-Round is in the middle of the park, and has different colored Yoshis going around in circles. In Episode 6, Mario must feed Yoshi fruit that turns him orange and then ride him to the Yoshi-Go-Round, since the ride is missing the orange Yoshi. The Noki Director explains that the Orange Yoshi ride is missing because it broke and they didn't have the funds to fix it, so he had it removed.

Trivia[edit]

  • Noki Bay and Delfino Airstrip are the only locations on Isle Delfino that cannot be seen from Pinna Park.
    • Pinna Park is also the only location on Isle Delfino from which Sirena Beach can be seen in the daytime.
  • Pinna Park is the first location in Super Mario Sunshine that is not accessed by using a Rainbow M.
    • It is also the only location in the game that Mario travels to via a method other than warping (he is shot out of a cannon).
  • Pinna Park is the first location that features music that is not a variation of the Delfino Plaza music.
    • Instead, part of the beach theme uses a remix of the secret levels that take place in the sky, making this the only main area in the game to use a cover of a secret level.
  • The orange bridge connecting the Ferris Wheel to the Roller Coaster doesn't appear in Episodes 1 or 3; it appears only from Episode 5 onward.
  • In Episode 3, when the player first enters the stage and sees the intro, they can see the Ferris Wheel turning as if the mission is Episode 5. When the player enters Pinna Park, the Ferris Wheel is turning at normal speed.[2]
    • Interestingly, when the player selects Episode 5, the Ferris Wheel turns at normal speed in the intro but when the player enters Pinna Park, the Ferris Wheel moves at the speed it should be going.[3]
  • During the game's ending when Mario picks up a damaged F.L.U.D.D., Pinna Park can be seen in the background with the Ferris wheel incorrectly colored red.
