Go in the upper right hand corner and WAIT for a few seconds. You will see Mario going away and there will be nothing but air the screen will be white and all of a sudden Mario will be closer to the big bomb boss. The second teleport spot is at the the second level which is the one with the baby penguin. When you first get on the level instead of going forward go backwards. You will see a brocken bridge. Stand at the edge of the brocken brige you will do the same thing as in the first level. You will arive at the bottom of the level were the mama penguin is.

The tunnel leads to the finish line and you can beat the penguin that way but it wont give you a star because you cheated.

Wierd Room

Go outside of the castle and go on top of the castle. NOTE: you have to have all 120 stars. After you are on top of the castle get the wing cap out of the red block and go back off the castle and launch out of the cannon again aiming at the top tower of the castle. You will fly and try to land on the slanted part of the roof on the tower. When you land there walk to the wall and you will go through it and you will fall down and you will be behind the door and if you go through the door it will take you in the castle. If you go through the door again it will take you outside but you will be stuck. This is very funny to do.

Infinite Lives (Japanese Version)

During the first fight with Bowser, continuously avoid him and collect all the coins that appear. Continue to do this until 1000 coins have been collected. Then, a green "M" will appear next to the number of lives remaining. From this point on, when a life is lost, the number of lives increases. While gaining lives will actually lower the number of lives remaining. The cheat will end if the number of lives reaches zero, such as when Yoshi gives Mario 100 lives after obtaining 120 stars. This trick cannot be done on the North American version as it only allows 999 coins to be collected. Note: Once the game is ended you will no longer have infinite lives.
