Where is the ? switch that activates all the red ? blocks in the game?

I'm trying to find it but I haven't been doing well so far.

unfortunately that's not how this site works. If someone thinks that your post can be improved they'll edit it to make it better. – l I Jun 7 '12 at 17:41
I am sorry, but the way you tagged the question it was bound to be edited anyway... – Emerica. Jun 7 '12 at 17:46
@JerryRox That is debatable. The DS tag is used for the DS as a device and its hardware/software. The mario series tag is relating to Mario as a whole, not specific games. On a side note, are you refering to the red ? blocks? – Emerica. Jun 7 '12 at 17:48
Yes. The red ? Blocks – Scribblenautical Jun 7 '12 at 17:52

Assuming you are referring to the red ? blocks you have to freelook in the main area of the castle right where you walk in. If you look up while you're standing in the circle you will see a light. Stare into the light and you will get teleported to a new area. Look for the castle with the red switch on it and activate it. This will unlock all of the ? blocks in the game.

But I'm trying to. When I stepped in, I pressed the (A) button. It says "A voice from above is saying, 'Hey... Mario...'" – Scribblenautical Jun 7 '12 at 17:58
