I'm trying to get all the star coins in Super Mario 3D Land, but I'm unable to find the second star coin in level 3 of Special World 2.

Where is the second star coin located in the level S2-3?

A short while after the level's checkpoint, you'll come across a water jet while riding a green platform. The star coin is just above that jet, you have to try and stop the platform above the jet and jump for the coin when the platform's raised.
