Hit the stone door to the east of the room to create a shortcut to the middle room, then hit the switch here to raise the skull on the back wall.

Slide straight down, between the skull's eyes, to land in the nose. Here, hit the Toad statue and check the inscription to start a cutscene.

Tips & Strategies

Buy the Coin Step Counter

Bonehead Island - Buy the Coin Step Counter.png

The Snifit here in Bonehead Island will sell you the Coin Step Counter, and it's the only location in the game where it is available. Although it's a pricy buy at 14,000 Coins, the Coin Step Counter will reward you with an amazing 10,000 Coin Bonus every 10,000 steps you take. This will continue paying off for the rest of the game, so be sure to grab it and equip it right away!

Remember that Accessories don't get cheaper with the Membership Card, so like it or not, this is the best price you're gonna get!
