The Big House in the Sky is the second mission of Rainbow Ride in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS. The objective is to reach the roof of the Cloud House.


Rainbow Ride Star 1
Part of the rainbow "track" to get to the Cloud House
Rainbow Ride Star 2
The top of the Cloud House

Once the player reaches the four spinning platforms, they need to take the magic carpet to the right. After passing the obstacles on its path, the player needs to take the next carpet on the right before the one they are on falls. The carpet passes through the upcoming platforms, so the player has to jump over them to avoid getting pushed off and then quickly return to the carpet before it disappears. The carpet passes through the Cloud House twice, with a flamethrower spewing fire out toward the center of the room. Once the carpet brings the player up to the roof of the building, they can collect the Power Star.

In Super Mario 64 DS, if the player happens to fall off the carpet within the building, using Mario's Power Flower located in that room (and the Mario Cap, if the player is not currently Mario) allows the player to reach the roof, where the Star is located.
