Scalding Scaffold Sinkhole is the twenty-seventh course of Episode 3 in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and its Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS ports of the same name. It requires 155 Super Gems to unlock, and it is played by Toadette. A level in the Special Episode titled Mine Cart Scalding Scaffold takes place in this level.


The course starts out at an extended platform over some lava which is connected to a spiraling tower. Once the player moves forward, the tower starts sinking into the lava and the player must climb a ladder in order to reach the higher portion of the tower. This portion of the tower starts with a corridor with a Piranha Sprout and a Pluck Patch with a turnip. As the level continues there are more Piranha Sprouts and Pluck Patches which contain turnips or even a Super Mushroom, Spike Traps as well as branching paths off the tower that contain large groups of coins and even Super Gems. At the end of the level, there is a long ladder which leads to this level's Power Star, ending the level.

Super Gems[edit]

Three Super Gems can be found throughout the level.

  • Super Gem 1: At the end of a hard-to-miss extended platform.
  • Super Gem 2: In a small alcove. Although it is accessible via ladder, this is time-consuming and can easily result in losing a life from the lava. Instead, Toadette must fall down from the highest ledge and dash to collect it.
  • Super Gem 3: In a Pluck Patch at an extended platform just before the final ladder.


Pixel Toad[edit]

The Pixel Toad can be found underneath two piles of coins located just above the second Super Gem.
