Ride Like The Wind is the seventh level of World 4 in the game Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3. The name of this level may be a reference to a song by Christopher Cross of the same name. This level's playable Yoshi is the red Yoshi.


Red Yoshi starts the level in a plain with two Koopa Troopas, two Para-Koopas and a Special Flower right above a pit. Yoshi has to use a red Flatbed Ferry to reach the next plain, where he has to hit a Wild Piranha in a tall platform, using a Spring Ball. He can also use this Spring Ball to reach an extremely tall hill, where he can collect Red Coins, and use another red platform to reach the next area. Here, he finds Huffin Puffins, and several Koopa Troopas walking in small platforms. He must use these platforms to reach the top of the hill, where he finds Gusties. Yoshi can jump on them to reach a hidden Spring Ball in a block, which he can use to reach a bonus area. Here, Yoshi must pump up a large red balloon with air, so that he can use it to fly and collect many coins scattered in the air. When Yoshi exits this bonus area, he falls right in a morph bubble, which turns him into a Helicopter, allowing him to collect coins in the air, and reach a tall plain with a Winged Cloud. Going normally through the level, Yoshi finds a Special Flower in the floor, a Fly Guy holding an 1-Up, and a door. This door leads him to an area, where he can find a Middle Ring, and a crate with a key, hidden inside the walls. Yoshi can also collect a Special Flower, by jumping on a Bullet Bill, and reaching the top of the plains. Here, he can also find a locked hut, where he can play the minigame Gather Coins. After this, Yoshi has to use a paddle wheel, while collecting Red Coins, to reach the other side of a large pit, where he has to use many platforms to reach a Special Flower, hidden inside the wall. Yoshi must then use some red Flatbed Ferries to reach the Goal Ring, where a Special Flower is located.
