Effect on player

Causes objects or platforms in the level to rotate/spin.

Spinwheels are objects that appear throughout Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. They appear in certain levels, such as Spinwheel Library and Spinwheel Bullet Bill Base.

To use the Spinwheels, the player must first stand on them, which will cause a large wheel to appear on the Wii U GamePad. This will allow the player to use the Spinwheel by rotating the stylus in a circle on the GamePad to rotate portions of a stage. The object that the wheel rotates varies from a small portion of the level to a large section of the level. The portions of the level affected by the Spinwheel will always readjust themselves to make sure the ends are connected to platforms.
