To get to the goal, you need to balance on a curled cylinder to get onto the goal platform. At first, the pause switch is the one in effect, but you can hit either the play or the fast-forward switch to turn the screw. Do not go for the reverse or rewind switches. Get onto the screw when one of the basins is levelled with the platform, and maintain a steady speed until you get to the end. There is a banana bunch and four single bananas on the goal platform.
Changes in Banana Mania
The screw is much thicker. As a result, it is no longer possible to skip over segments, forcing the player to go around the full screw. The "Original Stage Mode" version of the level is arguably easier as a result. 
- Unusually, the Challenge Mode version of this stage in Banana Mania contains no bananas on the starting platform, and only features the legacy bananas from SMB2's version of the stage. It's possible this version of the stage was overlooked when adding bananas to the starting platforms.
