You find yourself in a circular courtyard, in the centre of which stands the Magic Mountain. It is 12 metres high and surrounded by a moat filled with water, only 75 cm deep, and if you are a good sailor you can cross it in a boat, otherwise there is a bridge.

Up a winding path and at the top you will find the fairy tale castle with perhaps a beautiful princess looking through one of the windows.

Enter the castle, and slide down a mysterious spiral slide to the bottom of the "Mountain".
