Star Select Info

There are two versions of the course that can appear by selecting different stars. Keep in mind that if there are any blue stars (uncollected) present in the star selection menu, then the last version that can be selected is the first blue star and not the stars after it:

  • Act 1: This is the default act until Star 1 is completed. The manta ray is not present.
  • Act 2: Accessed by selecting Star 2 through Star 6, but only after collecting Board Bowser's Sub. The manta ray will appear.

Additionally, Bowser's submarine will disappear after Bowser in the Fire Sea is completed, replaced by several moving poles across the ceiling of the course.


  • You need to do 100 before completing Bowser in the Fire Sea since the sub is used to grab the red coins in RTA. You cannot star select to re-spawn the sub.
