To get the Red, Wing Cap - first you need to get 10 Stars, then a ray of light will appear at the entrance inside the Castle. Walk under the light and then look up at it to be transported to the Bonus Stage. Collect the 8 Red Coins for a Secret Star and then Ground Pound (A+Z) the Red ! To unlock the Wing Cap in every Level.

To get the Blue, Vanish Cap - once you've beaten Bowser the first time, head to the basement, unlock the door, follow the dark corridor to the right and enter the door. Go right, continue down the corridor and make the first right to a door without a Star - enter it, get in the water and swim under the wall to another room. Here, you'll find 2 pedestals to Ground Pound (A+Z) and drain the water - next, head through the door to be outside the Castle in the moat, make a right and follow the path to a hole. Jump down it, get through the area and find the Blue ! To unlock the Vanish Cap in every Level.

To get the Green, Metal Cap - you'll have to do Hazy Maze believe it or not. Down by that Sea Monster is a door in the wall at the far end - ride the Sea Monster over to the door, go through that door and jump into the Metallic Paining. Collect the 8 Red Coins for a Secret Star and then Ground Pound (A+Z) the Green ! To unlock the Metal Cap in every Level.

When you begin to need the flying cape, go to the main room where there is a rug with a sun on it. Stand on it and look up to the sun and you will be teleported to the flying cap place. The iron cap place is in a level where there is a sea monster. You have to jump into a black hole, I think it tells you where it is on the map at the beginning. Invisibility cap you need to drain the water under the bridge. Do this somewhere in the basement, go out the door and there should be a squared off hole in the stone floor somewhere. Jump down it and you are there.

The wing cap
In the entrance hall, stand on the yellow circle and look up, and you will be in the wing cap level. Go to the middle tower and jump on the big red button

The metal cap
Somewhere in hazy maze cave there is a metallic painting that looks like the entrance to hazy maze cave. I can't remember exactly where it is but go through the for the metal cap switch

The invisible cap
Once you drain the moat, there will be a hole at the bottom. Go into there and you will be in the invisible cap level

Wing Cap - Go to the round thing with a sun on it located inside the castle. Then face on it then they have a secret star, anyways go to the middle and then step on the switch.

Vanish Cap - Once you drain the moat, go outside then go to the bottom of the castle, once you go there, there's a square hole, will lead you unto the course they have a secret star too. Get to the end then you will meet the switch.

Metal Cap, my favorite cap-up - Go to Hazy Maze Cave, go to a far one, then there's a black hole, not the one that will make you lose, go inside it and..... Wallaa! You're Metal Mario! Get to the switch. To leave the course, all you need is to get 8 red coins, get the star then that's it.

NOTE: Sorry for late reply.
Hope this helps!

Wing Cap-When you get at least ten stars, go to the main lobby and you'll see a shining light in the middle zoom in into it.

Metal Cap-In Hazy Maze Cave, go to the room with Dorrie swimming in the water get on her til she reaches the far end of the room and go through the door and you'll see a portal.

Vanish Cap-In the basement, go up, right, right, and you'll see a room with a pool and two pillars, ground pound on both pillars and drain the moat. You'll see a hole in the moat jump into it.

For red cap you have to go to the castle if you just collect I guess 10 stars you will see a bright thing I the middle go in it look up you will fall off and there you go

Now next which is the Metal cap youll have to go to hazy maze stage and you know that mission swimming beast in the cavern go back in it ride the Beast youll find a metal door and you can see a black pool which is the thing you go to hM the hazy maze go in it get 8 red Coins and activate it

Last one is the Vanish cap after beating bowser you have to go to the basement on your left youll find a glass thing try to long jump while your inside a little bit you have to swim and youll find 2 things to GP do it then youll have to go to the door and you will see a hole when you get out go in it and your in the vanish cap

Hope this helped Smile
