Third Course is the third level of the Gold Mushroom Pack in New Super Mario Bros. 2, as well as the twelfth DLC level in the game.


The level begins with Mario rising on a mushroom platform with a Piranha Plant nearby. Another rising mushroom platform appears along with a Goomba, followed by two more rising mushroom platforms and more Piranha Plants, along with the Checkpoint Flag and a green Warp Pipe leading to additional rising mushroom platforms and a Koopa Troopa, as well as a Koopa Paratroopa further up. By touching a Gold Ring even further up, Mario can defeat some Piranha Plants and get up to six Gold Mushrooms as a result. After one more Koopa Paratroopa, Mario enters a Warp Pipe to be led directly to the Goal Pole.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: On the stretching mushroom platform before the Checkpoint Flag, the Star Coin is floating on the opposite side of it.
  • Star Coin 2: The pipe after the second rising mushroom platform in the second room leads to a bonus area containing the Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: Before the pipe leading to the end of the level, there is an alcove above the many pipes before then containing many coins and the Star Coin.
