8-3 Molten Magma

A slightly redundant title, since magma is inherently molten. As one might guess, it's another lava riding level. The desolate environment just seems to exude heat. Red Rexes, Podoboos, and fire bars are everywhere to be found. Skull rafts get you across the hot stuff, but there's boiling water among the lava pits as well.

The end is sealed off by the blue switch, but Kelly's there to assure you that you didn't miss anything. The stage is linear until that point, so locating the switch block isn't so bad after all.


8-3 Life1

At the end of the first raft ride, three note blocks form a bouncy staircase out of the pit. The high ledge nearby seems out of reach, but you can plainly see a red ? block up there. With a high bounce and enough momentum, you can get up there to find an extra life.

8-3 Life2

A short distance away from the first, another red ? block seems out of reach on a high ledge. The single coin to the right of the platform has an invisible note block hiding above it. Once that's found, the shroom's as good as yours.
