"A switch-filled level where anything and everything can move. Keep an eye out, it'd be easy to hide something here..."
Switch Shift Grove (or World 1-8) is the ninth course of Yoshi's Island. It's a forest-type level, and it's also one of the only courses in Yoshi's Island to have a secret exit (the other one being Rainshed Pond). It's a forest where many puzzling ?-Switches reside. This level can be bypassed via Tangle Temple.
- Star Coin #1: After hitting the third ?-Switch by going through the green Warp Pipes, follow the coins to your left, then jump up and enter a yellow Warp Pipe. Upon entering, hit a ?-Switch to make a Big Spiked Ball fall onto the girder nearby, then do a running jump over the Big Spiked Ball and onto the girder. Finally, tilt the girder so that the Big Spiked Ball can demolish the brick blocks guarding the Star Coin, and grab it.
- Star Coin #2: Go into the tall yellow warp pipe before the checkpoint. Upon entering, slide down the wall and get the Star Coin with a few wall jumps.
- Star Coin #3: Take the only Springboard for some time. Once the Star Coin is reached, set down the Springboard and bounce off of it to get the final Star Coin.
Avoid hitting the second ?-Switch after the checkpoint in order to access a green Warp Pipe. If successful, the secret exit will provide access to the Yellow Switch Palace.
