Third Course is the third level of the Coin Challenge Pack A in New Super Mario Bros. 2, as well as the sixth DLC level in the game.


The level begins with Mario Ground Pounding a Sledge Bro to receive a coin shower. After getting past a few Sledge Bros and several Lava Bubbles, Mario will touch the Checkpoint Flag afterwards. He will then encounter several more Sledge Bros. and Lava Bubbles, followed by a P Switch with an assortment of Blue Coins revealing the locations of Hidden Blocks containing Gold Mushrooms. Mario must then climb additional Donut Blocks to the Goal Pole.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: Just before the Checkpoint Flag, guarded by a Sledge Bro on a platform just over the lava.
  • Star Coin 2: In a bonus area filled with Hammer Bros., which can only be accessed by a subtly covered red Pipe. It is below a few Brick Blocks and a P Switch needs to be activated to stop Mario from falling into the lava.
  • Star Coin 3: Guarded by a Sledge Bro, on Donut Blocks on the top of the screen. Raccoon Mario is required to reach it, though Mario can also use a trampoline found a screen back.
