How to solve Search Party: Puzzling Park in Mario Wonder

The search party missions in Super Mario Bros. Wonder ask you to find five Wonder Tokens to reveal a Wonder Seed, essential for unlocking new areas. Puzzling Park in World 2 is particularly tricky, involving hidden platforms, a Wonder token hidden at the back of the stage, and a sneaky drop that looks like it should be fatal.

The level is faster if you can invite some friends to help you, but it’s perfectly doable solo. We recommend playing as Toad for his ability to see a particularly evil hidden block at the end of the level. The Wall-Climb Jump badge also comes in handy. Before we get there, let’s open our guide to find every Wonder Token in Puzzling Park with the easiest Token of all.

How to get every Wonder Token and Wonder Seed in Puzzling Park

In the first open space you come across, on top of the wooden bridge, jump to reveal a series of hidden blocks. Jump to the newly revealed platform and jump again a few times to reveal three more blocks. Go to the upper level to get your first Wonder Token.

Then, head to the platform below the yellow pipe that drops mushrooms in the level.

Once you’ve eaten a mushroom to become powerful (and saved another for later), jump towards the pipe. You will come out at the bottom, in the upper right part of the level. Head right to grab the Wonder Token there and then head back through the pipe to return to the foreground.

So far, so good. The next one is also easy if you know where the hidden block is. Head right to the right edge of the level and drop down to one of the small platforms. Pressing against the right wall, jump to hit a block and reveal a vertical vine. Climb the vine and jump to the right to get the next Wonder Token.

It’s time for a leap of faith. At the bottom right of the level you’ll find a drop that looks like it should be fatal, but it isn’t. In our experience with Mario Wonder so far, the black shading on the bottom of a blob seems to indicate that it is fatal. In this case there are no shadows, so jump down – the wall slides down to look fancier, of course!

Collect another Wonder Token and head left through the pipe to return to the top of the level.

We have left the most complicated for last. On the second level, between a gap in the yellow pipes, there is a block that Toad can see. It’s easy to spot if you jump around the area shown below, but the hard part is getting there.

We ended up equipping the Wall-Climb Jump badge and jumping off the high pipe to the right of the block. If you do it right, you can climb the wall up to the block and double tap down to slam it into the ground. Doing so will reveal the final Wonder Token to your left.

With all the Wonder Tokens collected, the Wonder Seed will appear at the beginning of the level. Head left and jump up to claim your well-earned prize!
