Mario Rabbids Sparks Of Hope Water Wheel Puzzle

Solving Water Wheel Puzzle will give you access to later segments of Sunrise Temple dungeon

Story Highlights
  • Water wheel puzzle is the first part of Sunrise Temple Dungeon
  • Clearing the passage for water will solve the puzzle for you
  • Moving 3 obstructions will clear the flow of water & solve the puzzle, allowing you to move in the next part of dungeon

The water wheel puzzle is the first puzzle in Sunset dungeon that you will come across in the first biome of Mario Rabbids Sparks of Hope. You will need to get through this puzzle and progress to the next few ones, such as the riddle of Temple of Sunrise, to make the progression. Clearing the water puzzle is much easier than most puzzles in the game. All you need to do is make way for the water to pass by, clearing the choke points.

Solving Water Wheel Puzzle

There are three choke points that you will notice when you reach the water wheel puzzle room, as shown in the image we captured. You will be able to see a water drain from which the water needs to flow. However, the 3 choke points hinder the motion of water from one point to the location of the water wheel. Clearing the choke points by moving the blocks will allow you to ensure the motion of water and solve this puzzle.

The first choke point, or the block, is pretty easy to figure out as it is just a single object hindering the movement of water. You can clearly see the space where you have to move the block so that water goes through the drain. Here is an image for your reference indicating the start point of solving the water wheel puzzle in the game.

The second choke point, as you can see in the image here, contains 2 blocks that need moving. What you need to do is slide the farthest block into the empty housing. Next, the block that hinders the movement of water should be moved to the location where the first block was. Our captured image will make more sense if you read the text and see the image at the same time.

Assuming you’ve cleared both water blockages so that the water can flow from one point to the water wheel, now let’s move on to solving the puzzle for the third location.

The third choke point contains 3 objects that require moving in a certain way so that you restore the flow of water through the drain. The task can be a little tedious if you begin by moving the wrong block.

What you need to do is separate the 2 blocks, as shown in the image here, that are sitting back to back with each other. Once you’ve done that, you will create room for the third block to be relocated.

After that, push the third block down so that all 3 objects sit in a row. Now, move the 2 blocks that are adjacent to the water drain in the opposite direction.

This will ensure that the flow is not obstructed and the water passes through this choke point. You can see the images here, just in case you don’t understand the instructions via text.

Dropping The Bridge

Once you’ve restored the flow of water from one point to the other where the water wheel starts moving, a bridge will drop. It will be your passage for moving towards the next part of Sunset Temple dungeon, where you need to complete another puzzle so that you can get spark power and a planetary coin as a reward. On the subject of sparks, consider reading our best sparks guide and learn about the top 10 ones in the game. 

The water wheel puzzle is relatively much easier to solve compared to the ones that you will encounter later in the game, such as Fountain’s Mystery Puzzle and the searching key for the Beach Beacon Secret zone

About Mario Rabbids Sparks Of Hope

Players get six characters unlocked when they start playing the game, and 3 others can be unlocked later in the game. While all characters have their own skill set and usability, picking the best characters will result in better outcomes of fights. 

The superb strategic fighting principles seen in Kingdom Battle have carried over into Mario Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, where they are taken to a whole new level. The downtime between battles is a great addition to the title, where players may relax in the expansive open areas, which have brightly colored environments and easy puzzles to solve.

Character movement in Mario Rabbids Sparks of Hope takes place in real-time, as opposed to the previous game in the series, Mario Rabbids. Instead of ordering your warriors to precise locations on a grid, you may use this strategy. This is the sort of sequel that builds on what came before it and keeps the elements that worked the best while also reimagining itself to the point where it seems extremely different right away.
