secret worlds: skyway access
You can access this secret world once you have the hazard shield. Also be sure to turn on boost ball aiming as it's required to get in. It's in the pause menu under controls.
Near the gate are four pillars with snake-like decorations. Find the first one on the right and get in front. It's important that you follow the video as closely as possible, because the next step requires a very difficult and unusual move. You need to land on the gate, and to get enough height for that, you have to do a spring-bsj and touch the pillar at a very specific time, resulting in a midair ghetto jump effect.
When ready, morph and roll forward a bit, then roll back and spring jump. Unmorph at the peak and use your first jump, immediately moving away from the pillar. Face the gate and continue moving forward, using your second jump at the peak. Line yourself up with the red spiky objects and use screw attack at the peak. If you got enough height, the screw attack will cause you to slide up the gate.
Turn to face the wall on your left and let yourself slide toward it. When you reach it, morph and charge a boost. Before releasing, make sure the targeting icon is in front of you so you go toward the wall (move the icon with the wii remote if needed). After releasing it, put a bomb as you start to be pushed away and quickly boost into it, unmorphing at the peak to enter the secret world.
- It can't be stressed enough how technical the first part is. When you unmorph against the pillar you must immediately move away from it, even though it's hard to see how that would get the ghetto effect. When done right, it won't look (or feel) like a normal ghetto jump, but you'll get the large height boost that allows you to slide up the gate when you use screw attack.
- When boosting into the bomb, you can put another one to try it again if you miss, but if you hit it and don't get in the secret world, any bombs after will have no effect when hit. To fix this, you have to get off the gate and start over.
- Boost ball aiming lets you control your movement while on the gate. Without it, you'll boost away from the wall every time, no matter what you do.
- You may find yourself sometimes landing on the middle of the gate while trying to screw attack up the left side. It's possible to reach the top from here with a single bomb jump and unmorph, but you can't get in the secret world like this; your bombs will have no effect in the next part if you use one now. It's the same reason you can't just use a 2bsj or sb-bsj to get on the gate and be done with it. The spring-bsj/ghetto jump allows you to get similar height without using a bomb, and that makes the whole thing possible.
