Cold Water Dash is a sub-world in Snow Kingdom accessed through a door on the west side of the overworld. The level involves using Rocket Flowers to dash over freezing water and up large, steep ramps while avoiding obstacles.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The level can be completed and both moons collected without the aid of any Rocket Flowers.[1] The first part can be done trivially simply by using cap bounces to avoid staying in the freezing water for too long, and the large ramps at the end can be climbed using a difficult series of many dive cancels.
  • There is an extra Rocket Flower that was accidentally left out of bounds by the developers, located under the ground just past the small ramp after the first freezing water section. It can actually be collected using Cappy in two-player mode by ground pounding as Cappy repeatedly into the void and jumping back up, since there is no collision on the underside of the ground platform.[2]
  • An infinite fall can be performed by bringing enough Rocket Flowers to last all the way to where the Dashing Above and Beyond! moon is, vectoring a jump at Rocket Flower speed off the end of the platform, and cap bouncing and diving to clear the death area.[3]
    • Performing this also reveals that the giant walls surrounding the level have no collision.
  • There are a handful of spots where Mario can stand on the side of the ground below the finishing area.[4]
