A brown Single Swing Lift

A Single Swing Lift[1] is a type of lift in Super Mario World. It is a platform on a swing attached to a pivot point. Single Swing Lifts come in two versions. Gray Single Swing Lifts perpetually rotate clockwise or counterclockwise. Many of them have red Koopa Troopas walking on their pivot points, while others have Fuzzies moving around their pivot points. Brown Single Swing Lifts do not move until Mario or Luigi stands on them. When either brother stands on a brown Single Swing Lift, it rotates clockwise. In general, it stops moving at the point where he jumps off it. If Mario or Luigi stands on the lift for too long, it eventually stops moving at the bottom, at which point he usually cannot make it swing back to the top. Brown Single Swing Lifts are mostly found in the level Yoshi's Island 3, while gray ones are mostly found in the level Chocolate Island 3.
