Now go back in to the level and pickup the red shell at the beginning of the level and jump on to the first ledge you see.  When the first red turtle comes in to view let go of the red shell and keep running to the right.

The shell will now kill all the turtles and give you a 1 up  🙂 Now press start then select to exit the level, Now go back in to the level again and repeat the process as many times as you wish.

You can re-enter the level as many times as you wish. To get to the top secret area enter the Donut Ghost House level with a feather, then run right for three seconds then stop and run left and fly up to the top of the level.  You will be able to land on the platform, now run right drop down and enter the door.

Now when you exit the level it will take you to the top secret area.

Always Win At Bonus Games : To do this all you need to do is stand in the same place and jump every 2 seconds. You will then always hit the same item which will give you more lives.

Re Use P Switches : You need a yoshi for this one.  Once you have jumped on a P switch turn around and get yoshi to eat it.  Yoshi will eat it then spit it out.

Super Mario World SNES Switch Palace Locations

super mario world switch palacesThere are four special switch palaces in super mario world. When you play levels you will see some blocks with one of four coloured dotted lines around them. At first you will be able to jump through the blocks but after you have found the switch palace for that block the block will become solid so you can jump on the block and some blocks have items in them. Sometimes these blocks can be used to access secret areas in the game. To find these switch palaces follow the instructions below.

Yellow Switch Palace : The yellow switch is located in the first world section. Keep going left (from the beginning of the game) on the world map until you reach the Yellow Switch Palace, already shown on the map.

super mario world switch blocksBlue Switch Palace : Go to Forest of Illusion 2. Continue through the level until you reach the end direct path to the level goal. Instead of going all the way right, go left. You will see what seems like a dead end, but continue going and you shall eventually reach a key and keyhole. You will know you’re on the right direction if you go past a “!” box with a mushroom inside it. This will then open up the Blue Switch Palace on the world map.

Red Switch Palace : Go to Vanilla Dome 2. Half way through the level you will see an empty opening above you except for one yellow box in the corner of the wall on the left side. Jump on this box and jump again onto the left side. Continue going until you reach a “P” switch. Take the “P” switch and go left until you reach a dead end of boxes blocking your way. Use the “P” switch and jump the gap the boxes leave until the next gap. Go down this gap to find the key and keyhole.

Green Switch Palace : Go to Donut Plains 2. Once again half way through the level you shall get to an area of massive sand blocks moving up and down with many pipes coming from the roof of the cave. There will be a small group of 3 pipes bunched together near the end of the moving sand blocks. Take the green pipe.

Defeat the football player enemy to find four boxes in the air like stairs. If you have a cape, hit the fourth/highest box to reveal a vine or if you have no cape. Climg the boxes to hit the fourth/highest box. Climb the vine and you will find the key and keyhole.
