Coin Collecting Tips:

Yes, Rainbow Ride is my favourite of all the courses. And actually, although it may be a little slow riding the carpets several times, it's pretty easy to get all the coins (just don't fall!) The ones that will cause you the most trouble will be the blue coins, where you must wall-kick up the whole maze, and nab the 5 blue coins at the top, before they disappear. With practice, doing this will become easy, but I still recommend that you get these coins very first. I really can't say much more to help you, just use the first blue coin as a guide of where to start your wall-kicks, and try to keep them in the centre. It doesn't matter which way you go first: to the big house or the ship. From the big house, you can warp (or even jump) to the maze, (actually you can even make it to the ship from the top of the big house, but it's tricky and I don't recommend it.) From the ship you can jump and land on a lower platform. The other coins I think you should get first are the ones from the Shy Guy, and possibly the first Lakitu, as they often fall off the edges.
