This level features some of the more luxurious scenery in the game and has large open areas. Start off by jumping into the clear pipe and blasting yourself over to the next platform. Watch out for the Ant Troopers as you hit the ? Block for the Super Bell that will be used a lot this level. Continue right and you’ll find a second Super Bell before reaching an area with several clear pipes. Ignore the Clear Pipe Cannon and climb up the wall to the left of it to reach an alcove with Green Star #1 inside.

Either climb the wall or slide down from the top to find the Star in an alcove.

Now fire up, up, and away past the Fuzzies to reach the top of the mountain. Run through the rotating platform to the Coin Box Hat then use the Clear Pipe Cannon to launch yourself onto a large open island. Run around the near side to claim a bunch of Green +Clocks then tag the Checkpoint Flag , but ignore the Giant Rabbit unless you want some coins.

Move towards the back, hitting the ? Block for the Super Bell then capture the Rabbit that’s glowing green to find Green Star #2 . The left and right corner have more Green +Clocks if you need them. The right side also features Ant Troopers marching around then into a hole, follow them into the hole to find the Stamp .

Catch the glowing rabbit (left) for a Star. Drop down the hole the Ants are entering (right) to find a Stamp.

On the home stretch you’ll find another Clear Pipe Cannon. Time your shot so you grab the Super Star so you can kill the Fuzzies and possibly get a few 1-Ups. At the top you’ll find a Green Star Ring that puts four Green Coins on each rotating platform. You have to contend with Ant Troopers to get Green Star #3 but it shouldn’t be too hard.

Hop through the green ring and collect the coins for the final Star.

Cap the Goal Pole with the Cat Suit, it’s just past the rotating platform.
