The level begins on a Mushroom Platform above Piranha Plants and a Big Piranha Plant on moving Mushroom Platforms. Mushroom Platforms that move up and down must be crossed, and a Big Piranha Plant and a ? Block are found. Three Piranha Plants are found underneath a Warp Pipe. A Hidden Block containing a Super Acorn is found above the right side of the pipe. A stationary Mushroom Platform is found, with Piranha Plants on moving platforms below it. A ? Block containing either a Super Mushroom or an Ice Flower depending on the player's current form is found. Another Warp Pipe with Piranha Plants underneath it is found, above a Mushroom Platform with a Piranha Plant at the end. A Hidden Block containing a 1-Up Mushroom is found above the left side of the pipe. More moving Mushroom Platforms are found under Warp Pipes with Piranha Plants and a Big Piranha Plant underneath. After the last Mushroom Platform, the Goal Pole is found.
