World 5-4 is the sixth overall level in Sky Land. It is the first level in the sky portion of the world, and it is unlocked after the World 5-Tower is completed.


This level starts Mario on a cloud below a constantly spinning Rotary Lift. There is a ? Block to the left that gives either a Super Mushroom or Super Leaf. If given a Super Leaf, Mario can run the length of the cloud to fill the Power Meter. If done, Mario will find a series of clouds above with coins on them. He can simply jump and float to a series of Rotary Lifts that lead to a Warp Pipe that takes him to the goal.

If Raccoon Mario chooses not to take the alternative route, he must jump from the starting cloud over another spinning Rotary Lift onto another cloud below. From here, there is another spinning Rotary Lift between Mario and another cloud platform. When Mario reaches the next cloud platform, there is a still Rotary Lift. This Rotary Lift tilts when Mario jumps on it in the direction his weight is pulling it down. To the right of this lift is a Rotary Lift that spins and stops for a brief moment. Below this lift is another endlessly spinning Rotary Lift. Mario must jump on the top Rotary Lift, and, from that one, jump to a still Rotary Lift. Next to this still Rotary Lift is a small cloud platform that leads Mario to another endlessly spinning Rotary Lift. Over the endlessly spinning lift are two waterfalls surrounded by three Wood Blocks on each side. Mario must jump on these Wood Blocks to avoid the waterfall's current. Past the second waterfall, Mario encounters a still Rotary Lift. This area contains a pattern of two sets of one still Rotary Lift, with a brief-spinning Rotary Lift below. Between the first two lifts is a red Koopa Paratroopa that flies in an up to down motion. Past the second sets of lifts is a cloud platform that leads to a Warp Pipe. Before the Warp Pipe, Mario comes across a green Koopa Paratroopa that hops towards him. The Warp Pipe takes Mario to a cloud platform with the Goal to the right. Once Mario steps foot on the cloud, a Lakitu that throws Spinies appears until the Goal is touched.
