Red-Hot Elevator Ride, or Peach's Castle-Princess Peach Castle Sprite.png is the penultimate course of Peach's Castle in New Super Mario Bros. U. Despite being labeled as a castle, it is completely vertical and takes place on an elevator, similar to World 7-2 in New Super Mario Bros. (the player needs to step on the sides to go left or right and the middle to go up) and World 7-Tower in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Another thing to note is that it has no boss, and the end-of-level Fortress seen after the flagpole is missing, making it the only level to lack a Fortress behind the Flagpole.

This course is used for the Challenge Mode courses Elevator Out of Service and Express Elevator.


The course is a vertical level, similar to Towers, and is filled with Parabombs, Goombas, Coins on parachutes, and Bowser Stunners. The elevator can only hold one other enemy or object, so if a coin or Bob-omb lands on it, the elevator stops. However, there is lava rising from below, so the player must make the elevator rise at all costs.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: The first Star Coin is found after the first Goomba-generating Warp Pipe.
  • Star Coin 2: The second Star Coin is behind a wall of Brick Blocks. It can be obtained by using a P Switch or a Bob-omb.
  • Star Coin 3: The third Star Coin is found between a group of Bowser Stunners, right before the end of the course.
