The Princess's Secret Slide, or PSS, is a secret level behind the 1-star door on the right side of the top level of the foyer. Upon opening, there are three windows with Princess Peach engraved upon them. The one to the right contains a warp that will take you to PSS. This secret stage contains 2 stars, one in an item box at the end of the slide, and one that spawns from the slide upon completing it in under 21 seconds.

An a press is required to collect the star that spawns from the box, because the star is 319 units high[1], but the maximum height of a star that a dive recover can reach is only 288 units high.
Do note that it is possible to open the box that spawns the star, just not collect it.

Slide Skip

Mario first slides down the slide in the buttslide action. When he reaches the first corner, he bumps into it to begin sliding backwards. Then, as soon as the low walls appear, he runs into the wall to be reflected into forward sliding and jumps to land on a lower part of the slide[2].
