Later on in the game, the area becomes more accessible when Bowser uses the Boo-Ray Machine in the Tower of Yikk. The Boo blocks then vanish, giving access to other areas. Most of them will require the Spin Jump to be traversed, and the brothers also learn how to burrow underground, as well as collect Attack Pieces from blocks to learn a new attack.
After learning two new moves, Mario and Luigi find Durmite, but she enters a door which can only be opened by a Star Panel. After a few more doors, they battle Durmite, who transforms into Wisdurm afterwards.
