Waddlewing's Nest, or Rock-Candy Mines-3, is the third course of Rock-Candy Mines in New Super Mario Bros. U. It is unlocked via completion of Grinding-Stone Tower or Shifting-Floor Cave, and its own completion opens the path to a red ! Switch, a spot where a Bubble Baby Yoshi resides, a green Toad House, and Walking Piranha Plants!.


The level begins near a ? Block containing a power-up and a Chain Chomp. The level progresses vertically, where Waddlewings, red tilting platforms, and more Chain Chomps are found. Warp Pipes containing Piranha Plants are found on the ground and the ceiling. Another Chain Chomp is found, which can be used to break Brick Blocks on the left, allowing access to a 1-Up Mushroom. A P Switch is found hidden in the wall to the left, and a tilting platform and more Waddlewings are found. A Chain Chomp is found with the Checkpoint Flag, and a Warp Pipe leads to the next section. The section contains a lift that moves downward, where multiple Waddlewings are encountered. A Red Ring can also be found. When the lift reaches the bottom of the area, two Chain Chomps are found, as well as a Warp Pipe. The Warp Pipe leads to the area with the Goal Pole, along with a Chain Chomp and a tilting platform.

Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: After a series of green Warp Pipes with Piranha Plants is a lone red Warp Pipe that leads to the area with the first Star Coin. To reach it the player needs to Ground Pound through the second set of bricks.
  • Star Coin 2: The P Switch in the hidden wall on the left is required to collect the second Star Coin in a nearby hidden wall on the right by turning a row of coins into Brick Blocks.
  • Star Coin 3: The third Star Coin is found during the elevator section, in plain sight.
