Red-Hot Log Rolling
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia
To reach the rolling log from the start of the level, the player has to take the left path at the first split, then the right path at the next. The player then has to cross tilting and sinking platforms to reach a circular platform with a duo of Bullies. Next to that platform to the right is a steel-grated platform that will bring the player through some lava plumes to the rolling log when they stand on it. By standing on the side of the log the player wants the direction of the log to roll in, the log will begin to move, though the player will have to try to stay on the log as they could fall off and into the lava. Once the log reaches the end of its rail, the player can use a path that leads to the Power Star.
In the DS version, Mario can use his Wing Cap ability to fly to the other side of the cage, and Luigi can use his invisibility power and backflip at the starting point to go through the cage. The player can also ride a Shiny Shell across the lava to get to the Star, but only in the fifth or sixth mission.
