Spin Block (New Super Mario Bros.)
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia
Spin Blocks are platforms that are only found in New Super Mario Bros.. When stepped on, the player starts spinning and jumps high into the air, then glide back down slowly. Pressing on the D-Pad while in the air causes the player to perform the Drill Spin, which causes the player to drop more quickly and has the ability to destroy Brick Blocks in a row.
