As it turns out, there are plenty of mysteries to find within, including an entire secret exit. Anyone going for all medals in the game will want to find this secret exit in Super Mario Bros Wonder.

Hot Hot Hot Secret Exit Location in Super Mario Bros Wonder

The path to the secret exit is found just before the course’s Wonder Flower section. This will show up some time beyond the course’s checkpoint flag, so it should be obvious when you reach the location. You might also want to use the Wonder Flower itself, as it will create a large number of water bubbles. These will cool the rocks around you, allowing you to stand on them for as long as you like.

From the Wonder Flower section, you’ll want to jump from the top-left platforms. The wall you’ve passed earlier isn’t as tall as it might seem at first, and a talking flower will likely alert your presence to the area on top of it. If you aren’t using a height-granting badge, or if you decided to skip out on the Wonder Flower, you might want to keep an Elephant power-up from earlier in the level. This will let you cool the rocks here and in upcoming sections, making it easier to platform your way to the secret exit.

After reaching this top area, you’ll find a set of three floating blocks even further out to the left. These will lead to a special flower that reveals secrets when moving over it. By following its trail, you’ll eventually find the flower replacing one of the heated rocks with a door. This door leads to a dark area with enemies, more rocks, and the secret exit you’ve been searching for.

Completing the level normally will lead you to one of World 6’s Wonder Seed houses. Obtaining the secret exit will also grant access to a Break Time level, letting you get your hands on yet another Wonder Seed. This can be helpful if you’re trying to complete the world as fast as possible or if you just want to complete everything possible. Many other courses in World 6 have secret exits of their own, so keep your eyes peeled even outside of this level!
