Spinning Sandstones, or Layer-Cake Desert-6, is the sixth level of Layer-Cake Desert in New Super Luigi U. The level is unlocked by completing The Walls Have Eyes's main exit or Stone Spike Conveyors. Completing this level will unlock Morton's Lava-Block Castle. This level is based upon Blooming Lakitus in New Super Mario Bros. U. The level features several moving platforms, with Piranha Plants being the most prominent enemy.


Luigi begins the level on a platform with ? Block above it. A few rolling hills are then found. Luigi then encounters three Sand Geysers, two of which have Stalking Piranha Plants on them. More rolling hills are then found, along with River Piranha Plants on top of quicksand and Piranha Plants in Warp Pipes. A pit with five Sand Geysers is then found, along with three Stalking Piranha Plants. A few more rolling hills are encountered, and then a platform with three Brick Blocks and a ? Block above it. After another rolling hill, a Lakitu throwing Gūrindai appears. More rolling hills, along with Stalking Piranha Plants and a Red Ring, are then encountered. Luigi then arrives at a River Piranha Plant and a Big Piranha Plant. After a rolling hill, the Goal Pole is found.
