The Space Zone is one of the six main zones in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, and is accessed by clearing the Hippo stage. In this zone, Mario dons a space suit and explores the moon and its surrounding stars, subjecting him to reduced gravity fields that increase his jump height but decreasing his speed and traction. The golden coin of the Space Zone is guarded by Tatanga.

The moon can be seen smiling in the overworld map for the zone; once the zone's Special Area is cleared, a shooting star will hit it, changing its expression to a more gloomy one.
