At the top right of the area, the player will go through the pipe to find the pole.
- Star Coin 1 - At the beginning of the area, Mario must hit three Invisible Blocks with coins, and then go into the pipe to find the Star Coin.
- Star Coin 2 - Mario must shoot himself up by using the Pipe Cannon and then wall-jump and go up the pipe to find the Star Coin.
- Star Coin 3 - Near the end of the level, a Mini Mushroom from a nearby ? Block must be used to go up the pipe in the top left corner.
