Skyward Stalk, or Sparkling Waters-Leaf, is the secret course of Sparkling Waters in New Super Mario Bros. U. It is unlocked via the secret exit in Haunted Shipwreck. Its completion makes the titular beanstalk grow, revealing some clouds and a rainbow, bypassing Soda Jungle and unlocking Fuzzy Clifftop in Rock-Candy Mines.


The level begins near a Flying ? Block, as well as a giant beanstalk that grows out of the ground and sprouts Leaf Platforms, allowing access to the next section. The second section autoscrolls, and the beanstalk containers to grow and sprout giant Leaf Platforms and other plant life. Waddlewings are encountered, and a Red Ring is found above a Leaf Platform that extends and retracts. More Waddlewings are encountered, as well as Goombas on balloons. Waddlewings and Goombas continue to appear as the player climbs the beanstalk. When the top of the area is reached, the player is taken to an area with the Goal Pole.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: The first Star Coin is found on the left side of the course, on a Bean Platform.
  • Star Coin 2: The second Star Coin is on the left side of the map on an orange bridge, covered by light clouds.
  • Star Coin 3: Near the end of the course, the third Star Coin can be seen to the right side.
