Players exploring the Flower Kingdom might want to know if there are any secret exits to find in World 3 of Super Mario Bros Wonder.

Plenty of courses in the game have a number of secret exits that allow players to unlock new levels and alternate paths. Each world usually has at least one hidden path, and World 3 — Shining Falls — is not exempt from this rule. But the secret exit in Shining Falls is one of the tougher ones to find in Super Mario Bros Wonder, especially for players only looking in the main courses.

Does World 3 Shining Falls Have Secret Exits in Super Mario Bros Wonder?

Interestingly, World 3 doesn’t actually boast any wholly unique secret exits from a major course. In other words, throughout all 6 main courses, you won’t have much luck looking for alternate exits or hidden flagpoles. It does still have a “secret exit” hidden within, but it’s found at the Royal Seed Mansion instead of within a course. In other words, players can only reach this hidden path after clearing the world for the first time.

After using the Royal Seed to take out one of Bowser’s Cloud Piranhas, return to World 3 and re-enter the Royal Seed Mansion. Master Poplin will make another appearance and offer to open up more challenges for you. In doing so, a new path from the Royal Seed Mansion will appear. This path leads to the Special World, allowing you to take on an especially-tough course.

The course unlocked through this secret exit is especially tough if you aren’t playing as one of the easier characters. Completing it will grant you access to the Special World’s mainland, which contains a shop that sells standees without the random chance of getting duplicates. You’ll have to visit this area eventually if you want to get 100% completion, so don’t miss out on revisiting the Royal Seed Mansion!
