Mad Props Station is a mission in the Octo Expansion.

Gameplay

When the player begins the stage, they find themselves on a narrow platform that slopes down to a grated walkway. When they drop down they land on a rotating platform with a propeller located in front of it. Hitting the propeller moves the platform towards the next area while balloons can be splatted along the way. The player has to avoid an Octotrooper and hit the Grapplink to make progress and get to the second checkpoint.

Follow the path with three Power Eggs to another rotating platform with a propeller. The player has to hit the propeller first before they can drop down on the platform and by doing so, Squid Rings appear. The player has to hit two Splat-Switches to open a gate so they can hit another Grapplink and a chance to collect a Power Egg container. Follow the path to a Launchpad to the third and final checkpoint.

When the player follows the path and falls down through a grated walkway onto another rotating platform, they have to hit the propeller so the platform follows a certain track with Octotroopers to avoid and balloons for splatting. The player eventually encounters an Octosniper on a moving platform they have to splat to open a gate with another Grapplink behind it and get to goal.

Beware the rotating platforms.
Search for the Grapplinks.
Steady yourself, and aim carefully with your charger.
