World 1 cannon secret
Some may have known this, but there is a way to get to the cannon in world 1 to world 5. Go to the tower. You will need a blue shell. Go to were the 3rd star coin is (go through door that you see when you enter a pipe that launches you in the air. not the one when you are about to fight bowser jr.). On the right side of the screen, you should see a space, then a transforming mini stair case. It's really a hidden pipe. Go through without getting squished. Here comes the blue shell part: destroy some bricks that are on the floor. Then you will find more in your way blocking a red pipe. Destroy those blocks with your shell. Go in the red pipe. You will be outside on the side of the tower. Fall down, then go to the flagpole. Then a path will open to the cannon.
