HOW TO COMPLETE AUGUSTUS GLOOP 2.0

 

1. HOLD YOUR BREATH

Take a big deep breath as you submerge yourself in the drink to enter the tube. From then on you'll be pelted with high-pressure jets of water as you try to ascend the slippery handholds, if you can move quickly we suggest holding your breath for as long as possible.

Spending a little longer in there? Try to keep calm and take slow and steady breaths.

 

2. DON'T LOOK UP

You might think it's best to see where you're going but we can tell you - it's up. Looking up the tube will only result in your face being pummeled with water, which is likely to cause you to panic or simply become even more disoreintated (more disoreintated than finding yourself in a water-filled tube in a field somewhere in Crawley. 

 

3. KEEP A FIRM GRIP

To make your way successfully up Augustus Gloop 2.0 you'll need to cling to those hand holds like they're the last golden ticket. Try to concentrate on getting a secure hold on each one before you move up.
