Third Course is the third level of the Platform Panic Pack in New Super Mario Bros. 2, as well as the twenty-fourth DLC level in the game.


The level begins with some Big Dry Bones and a Warp Pipe which Mario must enter to ride a segmented platform. From there, he must evade Bullet Bills and Buzzy Beetles falling from the ceilings. After the Checkpoint Flag, Mario must evade the fireballs from Bowser sculptures as well as some Banzai Bills. After yet another segmented platform, another Warp Pipe leads directly to the Goal Pole.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1: Mario must ground pound the Big Dry Bones to the right of the entrance pipe to get into his alcove. The Star Coin appears above.
  • Star Coin 2: Found up above when Bullet Bills start flying down from the top right of the screen. Mario must stomp on a Bullet Bill to reach it.
  • Star Coin 3: On the final segmented platform, Mario must ground pound the head so it dips under the lava. This will reveal an alternative path to the Star Coin.
