Star Lifts are spinning star-shaped platforms appearing in New Super Mario Bros. U, New Super Luigi U, and their reissue. They spin depending on which side of them is weighed down by the player; while spinning, they produce glockenspiel noises. Star Lifts also come in two sizes, with one size being slightly larger than the other. In New Super Mario Bros. U, they appear only in Spinning-Star Sky, where they are extremely common throughout the level. In New Super Luigi U, they appear in Broozers and Barrels, where they are shown being spun by Broozers' punches.
