Wing Mario Over the Rainbow is one of three secret levels in Super Mario 64, where Mario uses the Wing Cap to collect eight Red Coins and get a Power Star. The entrance to the level is found in a niche high up the left wall on the third floor of Princess Peach's Castle, opposite of the entrance to Rainbow Ride. The level contains two platforms with a Cannon on each and four solid clouds, which are connected by rainbows. Two of the clouds are transparent and Mario can fly straight through them. There are six red ! Blocks strategically placed around the level, making it easy for Mario to get from one cloud to another. If Mario falls from the level, he will not die, but will rather land in the pond outside Princess Peach's Castle. A Bob-omb Buddy appears in this level, and Mario has to talk to him to open the Cannons. This is the only secret level that features the use of Cannons. This course becomes known as Over the Rainbows in Super Mario 64 DS.

  • Light shines out of of the entrance to this course.
  • The course's name resembles the song Somewhere Over the Rainbow, sung by Judy Garland of The Wizard of Oz movie.
  • Fans have speculated that this course may've originally housed the Yellow ! Switch (for the Yellow ! Blocks) but was already activated by default. There is no solid evidence of this theory however despite it's popularity in the late 90's and early 2000's.
