Are there any patterns to the power-up panels in the red mushroom houses in New Super Mario Bros. Wii? Is there a way I can tell where the Bowser/Bowser Jr. panels will be?

Each world has 6 possible panel combinations. There is a guide on GameFAQs detailing the different panel combinations, and which ones you should hit to test what the current arrangement is.

Also, here's a visual guide to the panels.

That's a really nice resource; I'll edit it into my answer. – Kevin Y Aug 21 '10 at 23:34
The link to the visual guide gives a 404 error, here's one on GameFAQs – Fambida Oct 8 '11 at 3:12
@Fambida Thanks for catching that. I'll edit this new link in. – Kevin Y Oct 8 '11 at 3:26
