Switchboard Falls, otherwise known as World 3-7, is the seventh course of World 3 in Super Mario 3D World and its Nintendo Switch port Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury. It is unlocked via completion of Pipeline Lagoon, and its own completion unlocks The Bullet Bill Express.


The level starts with the player on a Switchboard which leads to an area with another one and a Switch Block, which when hit changes the direction of the tracks and allows the player to move on to the next area. Here, the player must hit the Switch Block and avoid the nearby Fuzzler in order to move on to an area with some Fizzlits and the Checkpoint Flag. A nearby Switchboard network leads the player to an area behind the waterfall where they need to hop on another Switchboard and pass another Switch Block network infested by Fuzzlers. After passing this area, the player reaches the Goal Pole.

Green Stars[edit]

  • Green Star 1: During the third switchboard ride, there is a platform with three + Clocks and a Warp Pipe that the player must jump on. The pipe leads to a room where the player falls from above toward the Green Star.
  • Green Star 2: After going through the waterfall, the player should tilt the switchboard left and duck underneath the wall to find the second Green Star.
  • Green Star 3: Before the Goal Pole, the player must ride the switchboard onto the rightmost diagonal railing upward while avoiding a Fuzzler to reach the third Green Star.


Wii U version
Switch version
  • After the third Green Star, the player must ride the switchboard left and drop down to another switchboard that leads to the stamp. The stamp is a Stingby.

Luigi sighting[edit]

If the player uses a Sprixie's binoculars, an 8-bit Luigi can be seen standing on top of a waterfall. There is also a faint one on the ground near the left wall after the checkpoint.
