Some of the items needed to complete the quest are distributed randomly. Therefore, their exact location is not described below.
Step 1: Infiltrate the Fun Park
At this stage, you just need to go straight ahead until you enter the Fun Park. As soon as you do it, you will receive the next task.
Step 2: Reach the root canal treatment tunnel
Your next goal is to reach the attraction called root canal treatment. The easiest way to get there is to follow the signs or look at the maps spread throughout the park. At this stage the first opponents will start to appear. You need to be on your guard.
The path will eventually lead you to a room with floating hearts. To get to the ride, you must throw one of them at the target located above the closed gate.
Stage 3: Gain access to the "root canal treatment tunnel" attraction.
To go further, you must first get tickets for the ride. To get it, win a few games. This number depends on how many people you are playing with. For easier navigation, find a map with highlighted locations at the entrance to the tunnel (and in other places) - this is where the games you need to complete are.
What is important, each game requires you to throw three hearts and hit the target. These are only located in the container near the root canal treatment attraction. That's why it's best to leave your belongings at the reservoirs and carry only organs.
Of course, you also have to watch out for opponents patrolling the area.
Stage 3: Activate the attraction
When you collect all the tickets, you can give them to the ticket inspector standing by the attraction. This will activate the passage to the next ride.
In the middle you will get a short scene from Mother Gooseberry. After that, the button that starts the attraction will be activated. As soon as you press it, a cart with puppets imitating children will appear. Your task is to transport them to the place of punishment.
Step 4: Remove obstacles
Shortly after you start riding in the cart, you will find out that the road is blocked in two places. The first barricade will be located right at the beginning of the ride. You will find the second one by following the route. When reach a hill with fire, simply use the stairs located next to it.
To remove the barricades, you must follow the wires. At their ends there is a mechanism that needs to be disarmed.
As soon as you do this, you can go to the cart and push it further. When you reach the hill with flamethrowers, let go of the cart - it will go up by itself. You have to use the stairs.
Step 5: Pour the water
At the top, it will turn out that there is not enough water in the tunnel to push the cart further. That's why you have to start the water pump. Keep in mind that the number of valves that need to be activated depends on the number of players.
The principle is simple - follow the pipes coming out of the wall in the tunnel. At their end, there is a valve that you must activate. If you choose wrong, your mental health will decline. Since it's easy to bump into an opponent here, you need to memorize the landmarks. Thanks to this, after losing the pursuit, you can easily go back to following the correct pipe.
Stage 5: Punishment
When you fill the tunnel with water, go back to the cart and push it. In this way, you will reach the shredder - use it to crush the puppets. This will make the puppets scream, summoning Mother Gooseberry.
The whole process must therefore proceed gradually -
- push the cart,
- lure the enemy out,
- go back to destroying the puppets.
Keep doing this until the cart is completely crushed.
Achieving the goal will allow you to return to the beginning of the stage and board the train.
How to survive on a higher difficulty level?
The harder difficulty level works similarly to that of the Police Station trial - you will have to face a larger number of enemies while having limited supplies.
- You practically won't find any useful items on the map. This is especially problematic since the location has many dark rooms. Use the night vision goggles only when necessary. Also, look for traps by the doors. Disarm them, and you might obtain a battery.
- A secret supply room may help you again. On this map, it can be found in Root Canal - right behind the first obstacle or under the stairs. The way to open it is the same as at the Police Station. You have to press the two blue buttons.
- Darkness will not always save you. On this map, you will encounter enemies wearing night vision goggles. If you come across them, you must get out of their line of sight at all costs.
