Kelly's right up front to offer her best advice thus far. Don't fall for the tricks (literally) and try not to let the stage intimidate you.
Mario doesn't get a Lens of Truth to reveal secrets to him, but the tanooki suit works almost just as well. Both the level's suits aren't particularly hidden, but being able to turn to stone and reveal hidden platforms is invaluable here. The first suit is to the right of the second long drop.
The second suit can be found if you skip the elevator and continue to the right. The road is treacherous, but it's the only other suit in the stage. You won't even find any others beyond the checkpoint. Plus, there's an RMN coin on the way.
On the left end of the first basement, the path spits left and down. An RMN coin is on the left, and this ? block can be found below it. If you go for the coin, the Buzzy Beetle wanders into the nearby muck (and dies). Without it, you can't kick a shell into the block. If you lost your feathers and suits, then you're out of luck.
At the elevator down, petrifying will reveal these platforms leading up. An extra life is waiting at the top.
After the checkpoint, the ominous chasm has a secret as well. If you still have a tanooki suit, you can reveal these invisible platforms. Jump carefully across them, and you'll find a 3-Up moon as your reward. Worth the risk? Just maybe.
If you fall in this blood puddle at the start of the ferry section, you'll find yourself boxed in by invisible blocks. Don't rage quit, though; it's not one of THOSE games. The space furthest to the left can be jumped through. Isrieri has a sick sense of humor.
