Rotating Panels are platforms appearing in Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario 3D World, and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury. They appear in sets of red and blue platforms, with one color rotating while the other stays level.
Super Mario Sunshine
Rotating Panels appear in Super Mario Sunshine in Bianco Hills' secret mission, "The Secret of the Dirty Lake". Here, they are large wooden panels with red and blue borders, which alternate between the red and blue panels flipping, and move in a fixed path.
Super Mario 3D World / Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury
Rotating Panels return in Super Mario 3D World and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury in World Star-2, Super Galaxy. They are now smaller and have a more technological appearance, and do not move from their positions. They have the same alternate-flipping function, but now, they make up the majority of the level, and even form long pathways. When rotating, their sides will light up.
