Slow falling platform
The second of room of World 8-Bowser's Castle in New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
First appearance New Super Mario Bros. Wii (2009)

Slow falling platforms[1] are bony lifts of varied length that appear exclusively in World 8-Bowser's Castle Sprite.png in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. When the player lands on one, it shakes for a few moments and then slowly descends into the lava below. Slow falling platforms are the key obstacle of the lava-draining room before the midway point. They essentially act as the game's version of Flimsy Lifts.
