Map of World 3-2.

World 3-2 is the second level appearing in World 3 of New Super Mario Bros. The level is a sky-based level, featuring Mushroom Platforms that rise, tilt, and lower, similar to the ones from World 1-3.


This level contains many Mushroom Platforms, and most of them tilt back and forth. About halfway in the level, if Mario goes down a yellow Warp Pipe, he will find the first Star Coin. If the player stays on the Balance Lifts, then Mario can reach the second Star Coin. After the Star Coin, there is a moving Mushroom Platform that Mario must ride on. Then, Mario must stay on more Balance Lifts, where there is a Red Ring. Finally, there is another moving Mushroom Platform, where Mario can obtain the final Star Coin, but he must avoid the Koopa Paratroopa. After the moving last moving Mushroom Platform is the pole.

Red-flag exit[edit]

On the first moving Mushroom Platform, there are three pipes in a row, colored red, yellow, and green. The green one leads to a bonus area. By going through the Warp Pipe on the other end of the bonus area, the player arrives at an area with several Mushroom Platforms that tilt, rise, and lower. At the end of this section of the course is a red-exit flag, which leads to World 3-B.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1 - Right when Mario passes the midway point, he must enter the yellow pipe nearby. The Star Coin is floating above the Mushroom Platform.
  • Star Coin 2 - Mario should hop on the Balance Lift after obtaining the first Star Coin to reach the second Star Coin at the top of the platforms.
  • Star Coin 3 - Mario should hop on the tilting Mushroom Platform and avoid the Koopa Paratroopa while obtaining the last Coin.
