Jump to hit them from below and you’ll find some invisible blocks. Above these blocks are two more invisible blocks, and then one final one. Climb them to find the second Star Coin hidden in an alcove above.

Special World 6-Airship

Star Coin #1 – The first Star Coin is located directly following the Spike Dragon. Break the Question Mark blocks of the Spike Dragon for a Power-Up, and enter the area below. Use a Tanooki Tail to break the bricks and you’ll find Star Coin #1. Enter the Pipe to face off against the Boss.

Boss Strategy: Boomer is back once more, only this time he leaves glowing lava in his wake. Take him out with the same strategy. Hit him on his head and avoid his shell. AS soon as he pops out of his shell is the best time to jump on his head again. Three hits and he’s a goner.

Star Coin #2 – The second Star Coin is directly after the breakable bricks from the section described above, or where the exit Pipe appears if you faced the boss. As soon as the screen scrolls up, you’ll see the Star Coin in the distance. Be sure the Switch Platform is on blue, making ground behind the Star Coin, then head under it and leap. Being sure to leap onto the Red platform or back onto the boats surface.

Star Coin #3 – The final Star Coin is found at the last section, you’ll see it hovering. Make sure the colors of the Switch Blocks won’t hamper your jump, then leap for it when its safe. Being careful of the enemies and spikes.
