Star Coins: World 2-1
This is our Star Coin guide for World 2-1 in New Super Mario Brothers Wii. This level introduces the sand spouts. As long as the sand is flowing it is safe to stand on and will push you to the top of the sand. Watch for the small puff of sand at the bottom of the screen to show then a new spout is about to explode.
Star Coin #1 - Pretty quick into the level you'll see the first Star Coin hanging out above a sand explosion. Just wait for the sand to start flowing and ride it up to the Star Coin and then jump to the platform for safety.
1UP - The very next area has a sand explosion between a Koopa and a normal brick. Grab the Koopa shell and wait for the sand to be at it's peak. Then throw the shell at the brick to release the 1UP!
Star Coin #2 - After the Midway Flag you'll come to a Piranha Plant over a Star Coin. Jump over the Piranha Plant to the sand then walk off the left side to drop down to get the Star Coin. Wait for the sand to start back up to get out of the area.
Star Coin #3 - You are going to come to a series of 3 spouts of sand with a flying Koopa overhead. You'll see the Star Coin down and to the right. You need to drop the Koopa on one of the sand sprouts to grab his shell. Then from the sand spout closest to the Coin throw the shell off the right side into the Coin. If you miss or you drop the Koopa into the abyss instead of the sand you can progress forward and then come back to see the Koopa re-spawned. If you are having a lot of trouble with this one you can bring a Propeller Suit into the level and make it all the way here and then jump and hit the coin and immediately propel yourself out of danger to one of the sand spouts. Good luck either way.
