About this image

Rock-Candy Mines is the mountainous sixth world of New Super Mario Bros. U, New Super Luigi U, and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. It is physically the smallest world, and it lies east of Acorn Plains, Sparkling Waters, and Soda Jungle, southeast of Layer-Cake Desert, Frosted Glacier, and Meringue Clouds, and south of Peach's Castle. Rock-Candy Mines is a world filled with tall, pillar-like mountains in somewhat irregular shapes. The name is derived from rock candy. There are also several train tracks acting as bridges in the world. There are ten levels in this world, with seven normal levels, two Towers, and the Castle level; and no Enemy Courses. The boss of this world is Roy Koopa.

Uniquely, the world map contains several sets of red and blue Stretch Blocks. These blocks correspond with red and blue switches on the map. Pressing a switch of one color causes the Stretch Blocks of the same color to extend and the Stretch Blocks of the other color to retract. Mario and Luigi can only cross gaps with an extended set of Stretch Blocks spanning the gap, so to reach certain levels, Toad Houses, and a Bubble Baby Yoshi, the player must first find and press a switch of the appropriate color. Gaining access to the switches is done by completing certain levels.

There are multiple ways to enter this world. One is to complete Iggy's Volcanic Castle, Soda Jungle's castle, normally. (In New Super Luigi U, completing Iggy's Swinging-Chains Castle does the same.) The other two are to complete Fliprus Lake or Skyward Stalk, Frosted Glacier and Sparkling Waters' secret levels, respectively. (These are Fliprus Floes and Beanstalk Jungle in New Super Luigi U.)
