Spike's Tumbling Desert, or Layer Cake Desert-1, is the first course of Layer Cake Desert in New Super Luigi U. It is unlocked by completing Lemmy's Lights-Out Castle, and its own completion will unlock Underground Grrrols and Piranhas in the Dark.


Luigi begins the level near a ? Block. A pit of quicksand is then encountered, along with Spikes on rising and falling Brick Blocks. Two Spikes on the ground are then encountered, along with one on top of a ? Block. A Red Ring is then found. As the ground slopes upwards, three Spikes on Brick Blocks are found. At the bottom of a steep slope, a P Switch that causes moving coins above a pit of quicksand to become Brick Blocks. Two Spikes are encountered, along with the Goal Pole.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: The first Star Coin is above the first Spike in the level.
  • Star Coin 2: The second Star Coin is in a secret area beside the fifth Spike.
  • Star Coin 3: The third Star Coin is above the Spike to the right of the P Switch.
