Super Mario Bros. Wonder: Puzzling Park Search Party Guide
Looking for the five hidden coins in Puzzling Park? Let's-a go.
Super Mario Bros. Wonder is the latest in a long line of Mario platformers, but it introduces new stage types that break from the traditional precision jumps and squishing hapless Goombas. One of those new types is Search Party, which lets you freely explore an area to find five hidden coins called Wonder Tokens, and claim a Wonder Seed. The W2 Fluff-Puff Peaks Search Party stage, called Puzzling Park, can be tricky, but we'll show you how to find every coin and claim the seed.
W2 Fluff-Puff Peaks: Puzzling Park Search Party
As always for a Search Party, the Search Party stage all takes place in one self-contained area. You can explore freely, but the five Wonder Tokens won't necessarily be in plain view--and if they are, it won't always be clear how to reach them. You'll usually have to trigger a hidden block to find them, but the blocks aren't hidden for everyone. Some blocks are only visible to Peach or Luigi, for example, so the Search Party mode is meant to encourage teamwork as different characters can see hidden blocks. Every character can hit the hidden blocks if they know where to do it, though, so for the purposes of this article we'll assume all of the hidden blocks are invisible to you.
Here's how to grab the tokens, listed in order from left to right as they appear in the token indicator in the upper-center of your screen.
Wonder Token 1: Trigger a hidden block near the entrance
Right near the entrance to the main area, you'll cross a short bridge. Around the middle of this bridge you can jump to hit a set of hidden blocks (visible to Peach and Nabbit) that will trigger the coin, as well as serve as a platform to let you reach it.
Wonder Token 2: Push pipe in underground area to find hidden trigger block
This is probably the trickiest of the coins in this stage. To find it, locate the moveable yellow pipe in the underground area, and move it between the two columns as shown. That will position it to let you hit a hidden block (visible to Yellow Toad) that will reveal the coin.
Wonder Token 3: Take the yellow pipe to the background area
Near the location of Wonder Token 1, you'll see a platform just below a yellow pipe. Take that pipe to transport into a background area where you can easily reach this one.
Wonder Token 4: Drop down the gap on the right side
Near the location of Wonder Token 5, you'll find a gap on the right side that appears like a death pit from the usual platforming stages. Just jump or wall-slide down to find the hidden coin.
Wonder Token 5: Hit the hidden vine block to reach
You can actually see this coin in plain sight when you go into the background for Wonder Token 3, but isn't apparent how to reach it since it's so high in the sky. To do that, just head under the platform as shown and jump to hit a hidden block (visible to Luigi) that will trigger a vine to climb and grab it.
Once you've collected all five Wonder Tokens, the Wonder Seed will appear in the center of the upper area, allowing you to grab it and complete the stage.
