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 Piranha Pods appears. More rolling hills, along with Stalking Piranha Plants and a Red Ring, are then encountered.
