World 3-1 is the first level of World 3 of New Super Mario Bros. Wii. It is located in the first section of the world. It is the first level to introduce penguin suits. It is unlocked by completing World 2-Castle and completing it unlocks World 3-2.


The airship arrives in the Ice Mountain, goes to the tower, drops off Lemmy, and then heads for the Castle as Mario arrives.


The player starts off at the beginning with Cooligans (penguin-typed enemies) sliding. Then, the player continues on into more icy ground with more cooligans. Then, there a few Piranha Plants and the first Star Coin is visible. Then, there are Koopa Paratroopas, Cooliganas, and many coins. The player then reaches an icy ground and then the checkpoint. At the end of the section, the second star coin can also be visible under the pipe the player must go through. After entering, there is a red ring, some brick blocks, and a pipe. The player can slide as a penguin through the rest of the level until the flagpole.
