Special 3 is the eleventh world and the third special world in Super Mario 3D Land. The level takes place in a flowery field at night, like the others, with several hills and trees in the background. It is unlocked by completing Special 2-Airship. The world is one of the few that lacks a boss at the end. The world contains six levels and a Mystery Box. Alongside Special 2, Special 3 lacks any Cosmic Clone levels.
