Need to take the route to the Cruiser to get into the Cannon.

If the player has not already opened up the cannon, they will need to talk to the Bob-omb Buddy on top of the large maze by using Mario's Wall Kick at the back of the maze.

At the four spinning platforms, they need to take the magic carpet. After passing the obstacles on its path, the player needs to take the next carpet on the left before the one they are on falls. Remaining on that carpet and passing the spinning platform will take the player to the large ship. On the stern of the ship is the cannon the player needs to jump into. The player needs to line up their shot so they fly through the rainbow ring in the air and grab the pole on the floating platform beyond it. While avoiding the Chuckya, the player has to hit the ! Block to reveal the Power Star.
