The igloo is a location found within Snowman's Land in Super Mario 64 and its remake Super Mario 64 DS. In both games, the sixth mission of Snowman's Land involves having to collect a Power Star located between the thick ice. Super Mario 64 DS has a second mission that takes place within the igloo, Red Coins in the House, where Mario, Yoshi, Luigi, or Wario have to collect eight Red Coins; it replaces the Shell Shredding For Red Coins mission from Super Mario 64.
The igloo is located on top a slope, and is mainly reachable via a Shiny Shell. The igloo has a very small exterior, and can only be entered by crawling into its opening. However, the igloo is much larger on the inside. In the original game, the igloo interior has several walls of ice, making up a maze, and Vanish Mario can collect the coins within the walls. Spindrifts and Goombas all roam around the igloo. In Super Mario 64 DS, the igloo was redesigned to have a large freezing pond instead, consisting of several Spindrifts, Red Coins, and Coins. Both games feature a Bob-omb Buddy within the igloo, and by talking to the Bob-omb Buddy, it opens the cannon at the start of Snowman's Land.
