Tricky Trapeze Theater, otherwise known as World 5-2, is the second course in World 5 from Super Mario 3D World. The level is unlocked by clearing Sunshine Seaside and its own completion unlocks Chargin' Chuck Blockade Is Back.


A gondola takes the player to an area with Fizzlits and trapezes. Shortly after, another gondola takes the player to the Checkpoint Flag and some platforms filled with Mushroom Trampolines and Piranha Plants. A clear pipe takes the player to an area with swinging platforms with spiked bars and more trapezes. Eventually, the player reaches an area with a trapeze and the Goal Pole.

Green Stars[edit]

  • Green Star 1: On a high ledge at the beginning of the level.
  • Green Star 2: To the east of the rotating platforms, there is a pipe. When the player enters the pipe, they have to grab the Blue Coins to collect the Green Star.
  • Green Star 3: The Green Ring near the end of the level must be activated in order to get the Green Coins and the Green Star.


  • To the north of the rotating platforms, the player can use the Mushroom Trampoline to reach it. The stamp is Luigi jumping.
