Jeffrey Parkin (he/him) has been writing video game guides for Polygon for almost seven years. He has learned to love just about every genre of game that exists.

Hot-Hot Hot! is a level in Super Mario Bros. Wonders W6 Deep Magma Bog. It has the normal stuff — a Wonder Seed, flower coins, and a flagpole at the end — but the level also has a secret exit. Finding it unlocks a path to a hidden level, Break Time! Hot-Hot Rocks — which has another Wonder Seed for you to grab.

Our Super Mario Bros. Wonder guide will walk you through where to find the secret exit location in Hot-Hot Hot!, allowing to you get the secret third Wonder Seed.


Where to find Hot-Hot Hot! secret exit location

There are three Wonder Seeds to collect in Hot-Hot Hot! The first two — the one you get from the Wonder Flower sequence and from reaching the normal flagpole — are a bit more obvious. You can find our walkthrough of them with the rest of W6 Deep Magma Bog Wonder Seeds.

For the third Wonder Seed and the secret exit, we’ll start at the level’s checkpoint. You’ll also need the Boosting Spin Jump Badge (there might be another way to reach it, but this was the easiest way we’ve found).

When you reach the checkpoint, turn around and backtrack to the Hot-Hots just to the left. Use them to climb up to the top of the screen (there’s a water jar nearby to make the process easier).

Dash and jump as far as you can to the right, and then Boosting Spin Jump up onto the cloud platform. Hit the flower there and then the second flower that spawns below you.

Chase the magical spark that creates all the way back to the left until it turns into a door.

Make your way through the twilight version of the level until you reach the secret exit’s new flagpole (and get the third Wonder Seed). This opens the path to Break Time! Hot-Hot Rocks.
