Wing Mario over the Rainbow

Located on the opposite side of Rainbow Ride, Wing Mario over the Rainbow is a stage with 7 clouds. This stage is very challenging, as the 8 red coins are scattered around the clouds to make it difficult to collect this Power Star. Falling into the death barrier warps Mario back to the castle grounds. For some odd reason, the underside of the beginning cloud is a hangable ceiling.

A Button Challenge

This course requires 1 A press to enter and 2 A presses to beat.

Other Challenges

This star cannot be collected in the Coinless Challenge, Capless/Cannonless Challenge, CCC Challenge, No Buttons Allowed Challenge, No Joystick Allowed Challenge, and UBER Challenge. It is the only star in the game that cannot be collected capless, although it is possible to collect it cannonless either by building up enough speed to fly to the highest cloud or by using the Wing Cap infinite height glitch.

This star can be collected in the Pacifist Challenge, B Button Challenge, and Z Button Challenge. In the B Button Challenge, the Wing Cap infinite height glitch is required to reach the highest cloud on the JP 1.0 version to avoid opening the cannon.

There are multiple unsolved challenges in this course: reaching a Parallel Universe and grabbing the hangable ceiling underneath the starting cloud.
