World 5-2 is the second level of World 5, in New Super Mario Bros.


This level is another underground cave where ice covers the ground. The level contains multiple Spike Tops and Swoops in it. To get the first Star Coin, Mario should go up, avoiding the Piranha Plants, and then he should hit blocks above him. After the Piranha Plants are two Warp Pipes, one yellow, and one red. The player should go ahead to an area with a spring, and above it is the third Star Coin. Mario should get the Star Coin and move the spring to the yellow and red pipes seen earlier. If the player jumps into the yellow one, they will go to an area with a Moneybags. Mario should go to the end to grab the second Star Coin by Wall Jumping to it. After going through the Warp Pipe, Mario just needs to jump across more ice, avoiding more Spike Tops and Swoops, to make it to the pole.

Red-flag exit[edit]

Near the end of the level, there is a large block of ice with two Spike Tops on it, and a pipe with a Piranha Plant above it. Mario should enter the pipe to reach the red-flag exit, which leads to a Warp Pipe on the world map that takes him to 5-3.

Star Coins[edit]

  • Star Coin 1 - While avoiding the first set of Piranha Plants, Mario should hit the bricks guarding the Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 2 - Mario must use the spring to reach the yellow pipe before the midway point, and then follow the Moneybags to the end of the area for the Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3 - Mario must use the spring to get the final Star Coin when the two Spike Tops are on the other side of the ice.
