Mario and Yoshi on a Skull Raft in Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2

The level takes place on a lava river in the Vanilla Dome world. At the start of the level, there are two Flying ? Blocks and a stationary one. The first Flying ? Block and the stationary one are coin blocks, and the top Flying ? Block contains a 1-Up Mushroom.

The player must continue on the lava river while standing on Skull Rafts and avoiding Blarggs. On the next platform, the player needs to hit an invisible Coin Block to get over the pipes. There is also a power-up ? Block containing a Cape Feather. Afterwards, there is a yellow pipe leading to an ice cave; past that, there is a blue Koopa without a Shell kicking a red shell up and down the adjacent pipe, right underneath the Midway Gate. Yoshi is available in the ? Block above the Midway Gate, which can be hit by throwing the red shell upwards directly under the ? Block. After that, there are more Skull Rafts, and they continue until the end of the level.

With a cape, the Mario Bros. can fly up to the ceiling near where the orange pipes and invisible blocks are to find two secret areas. To the left, there is a platform with a 3-Up Moon, and to the right, there is a pipe to a bonus game.
