A-Maze-ing Maze Exit is the 5th star of Hazy Maze Cave. In order to complete it, Mario must enter the toxic maze and find his way to a hole in the wall where he goes up an elevator and has to climb across a hangable ceiling to the star platform.

Speedrun Strategy

A fast way to complete this level is to enter the room where the rocks fall into the hole, and double jump then wall kick to end up onto the platform with the box. Then from there Mario can long jump onto the star platform skipping the maze entirely.

A faster method involves entering the same room, and triple jumping off the platform with the heart on it, and wall kicking onto the star plaform.

A Button Challenge

The star can be collected in 0 A presses. This is done by raising a scuttlebug in the room where the star is located. Then Mario enters the maze, and uses the bounces from a monty mole and a swooper to get to the door. Once Mario goes up the elevator, he uses a bounce from the scuttlebug which was raised earlier to reach the star.
