Sometimes these blocks can be used to access secret areas in the game. To find these switch palaces follow the instructions below.

Where is The Yellow Switch Palace In Super Mario World? The yellow switch is located in the first world section. Keep going left (from the beginning of the game) on the world map until you reach the Yellow Switch Palace, already shown on the map.
