Tower of the Wing Cap Red Coins is a secret star in the stage Tower of the Wing Cap. To get this star, Mario must collect all 8 Red Coins in the level.


  • 2 are located in each of the 4 coin rings in the level (Right, Left, Front, and Back) for a total of all 8 red coins.

A Presses

There are 0x A presses required to get the star and hit the switch. This strategy doubles as the TAS WR with a time of 19"30. The star is too high to be collected with a dive recover but Mario can just maintain height from flying. Mario grabs the star before landing (which would've triggered the switch textbox). Note that the RTA record seems to have a shorter time because it doesn't include the textbox that appears when first entering the level, which takes ~ 1.46 seconds.
