The LevelEdit

The level is based on roller coasters. Just keep going until you reach the goal and secret exit. There are lots of holes there, so be careful. The level itself seems a roller coaster was inside a library. 

Secret ExitEdit

When you collect all 4 dragon coins, the yellow blocks before the goal are now gone. Fall through the gap where they were, then jump onto the main track after passing the main goal.
