Star Coins: World 5-3

This is our Star Coin guide for World 5-3 in New Super Mario Brothers Wii. This level introduces the weird tennis ball headed vine creatures. You can kill them by hitting their head from above. If you hit them in the head from below it will force them to move.

Star Coin #1 - The first Star Coin is out in the open. You can use one of the tennis ball head creatures to get a little extra boost to get up and get the Star Coin.

Secret Area - Right after the Midway Flag is a tennis ball guy over a pipe. Getting in this pipe flings you to the top platform with another pipe hanging down. Get into this pipe to get a Red Hoop. The last few red coins are hidden in the clouds.

Star Coin #2 - You'll come down from the previous secret area to see a coin to your left protected by some bricks. Head left to get a Koopa. Grab his shell to break the blocks and then slide in to get the Star Coin.

Star Coin #3 - The third coin is at the bottom of the screen below 2 sliding blocks. Just stand on them long enough for them to slide you down to the Star Coin and then jump out before dying to the purple sludge.
