The Super Spring[1] is a green-colored Spring that launches Mario (or Luigi) off-screen in Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, allowing the player to skip portions of the level. Mario falls back downward after a certain amount of time, so the player must be mindful to ensure that he does not fall into a hazard such as a pit. With the right timing, dashing before jumping onto a Super Spring also allows Mario to cover longer stretches of distance than normal. The Super Spring appears in World 2-1, World 3-1, World 3-3, World 7-3, World B-1, World B-3, World C-2, and World C-3.

In Super Mario All-Stars, all of the Super Springs in World B have been replaced with regular Springs.
