Afterward is a Warp Pipe with a Piranha Plant, which leads to an underwater area with Bloobers, Cheep-cheeps, and sinking lifts that push the player downward. After the initial Warp Pipe is a broken set of stairs with two Little Goombas walking down it, followed by a formation of blocks and a Hammer Brother By finding a Hidden Block to the right of the row of ?
