I've never been able to get on it, even in the metal cap.

When you get it to appear, you go to it without the Metal Cap and you press B to grab it. It works a bit similar to the Koopa Shells in Super Mario Galaxy when put underwater. But it has a time limit, and it disappears in a span of a few seconds, so I never found an actual use for it.
You're pretty good! (b='_' )b=

There's also one in the Submarine section of Dire Dire Docks OP, which is even more useless due to the relative lack of anything interesting there.

Oh, did not know that :P

Im 100% the game, because i was too scared to go into the harder levels when i was younger. So i never got that far yet. (Except in Super Mario 64 DS)

But nice to know, even if it is useless xD
