Star Coins: World 1-5
This is our Star Coin guide for World 1-5 in New Super Mario Brothers Wii. World 1-5 is in the clouds and to help you get the first Star Coin I recommend you enter this world at least as Mushroom sized Mario.
Star Coin #1 - You're going to want to start this level at least as mushroom sized Mario to make this first coin easier. Right away you will come to a section of 3 sets of bricks on separate loops. The one ?-block will be a Propeller Suit so grab then. Then right any of these loops to the top of the screen to find a platform. Slide jump under the leftmost of the 2 ?-blocks on this platform to reveal a Vine. Now climb the vine to get to the secret area. Up in the secret area you can either ride one of the 2 sets of ?-blocks to the top and fall through the Star Coin or Propel yourself up to it.
Star Coin #2 - Right after you get out of the pipe from the secret area you are going to jump onto a large rotating green cube. Next you will come to a lone Koopa on a small platform. Grab his shell and jump to the next large green cube to the right. Now as it start to dip to the right drop the shell on the Star Coin. Alternately you can butt slide down the cube into the Coin and then jump to safety OR you can free fall into the Coin and then Propel yourself to safety. Lots of options with this one.
Star Coin #3 - Mario will come to a series of small red rotating cubes. The final Star Coin is above the second flying Koopa. If you have the Propeller suit then simply fly up there and get the coin. If you don't you can use the Koopa as a jumping off point. Simply wait for the Koopa to be at his highest point and then jump off him to the Star Coin.
