Chapter 2 (Contd.)

Scene 9

We now enter a flashback from the perspective of Angela, so we’re back to first-person. There’s a lot to see in the Arcadia Entry lobby, so feel free to look around.

When you’re ready to continue, go to the entrance to “Elijah Walton’s Dream of Tomorrow”, which is to the right of the Gift Shop. Go through the Speedway Entrance by scanning the reader to the left of the gate.

American Arcadia Walkthrough - Chapter 2 (Scenes 9-11)

Get down and step into the car-shaped cart for the ride. Here you’ll have to see the ride through, so strap in.

Once the ride is over, exit to the right and go up through the exit. Rather than exiting the orange corridor, take the door to the right to enter the Cast Room.

American Arcadia Walkthrough - Chapter 2 (Scenes 9-11)

Go through the blue door to the left and view the posters for the manual override on the wall here. We’ll be following this procedure to shut down the ride and gain entry to the ride area.

Begin by picking up the key on the desk in this office.

American Arcadia Walkthrough - Chapter 2 (Scenes 9-11)

Exit the office and go up the stairs to find the ride controls. Here, interact with the Override Control to plug your key in.

The screens above show the three sections of the ride (S1, S2, S3). We need to disable one prop in each section to shut the whole ride down.

American Arcadia Walkthrough - Chapter 2 (Scenes 9-11)

Each prop has a code on its back, which we need to enter to disable the prop. The code for the S2 prop is already visible on the monitor, so switch the dial to S2 and enter the code ‘2712’. Flip the red switch to ‘Off’.

To find the code for the S1 prop, go down the stairs and enter the room opposite to the Cast Room. Here, you’ll find the code behind the prop for Elijah Walton’s chair. The code is ‘6711’.

For the S3 prop code, re-enter the office and search the waste basket near the door. The code is ‘9518’, and it disables the Vivian Walton prompt.

American Arcadia Walkthrough - Chapter 2 (Scenes 9-11)

Follow the same procedure as you did before to disable the S1 and S3 sections. Once you’re done, head out of this room by taking the newly-opened door leading to the ride.

Go all the way down and through the ride’s only open door (i.e. the door you came from when the ride was ending). Keep following the track until you find the ‘Exit’ door and go through it.

American Arcadia Walkthrough - Chapter 2 (Scenes 9-11)

At the vending machine, turn left and crawl into the ventilation duct. Go right and follow the corridor into the Luggage Room.

Inside, Angela will raise her phone for the e-Ticket, which shows where her luggage is located. You can locate the luggage by using the charts on the walls as a hint.

American Arcadia Walkthrough - Chapter 2 (Scenes 9-11)

In the maze of luggage shelves, look to the floor for a cluster of shelves marked ‘AA3’. Here, go to the shelves marked ‘1145’, which corresponds to your Departure time.

Finally, look in locker ‘2I’. This is because according to the yellow charts, Car 10 luggage is stored there. Pick up the suitcase here to continue.

Scene 10

Upon regaining control of Trevor, go all the way right to enter the room Angela booked. Here, we need to turn on the Insta-Delivery device to the far right, but if you do this, the service bot will shut it down again.

American Arcadia Walkthrough - Chapter 2 (Scenes 9-11)

So instead, switch to CCTV mode and go to Cam 0. Turn off the spotlight in the bathroom. As Trevor, grab the laundry trolley and prepare to drag it.

Once the service bot enters the room, quickly drag the trolley to the left to trap the bot inside the bathroom. Then, you can freely run right and use the Insta-Delivery device (in CCTV mode).

American Arcadia Walkthrough - Chapter 2 (Scenes 9-11)

You’ll now switch to the luggage conveyor belts in the backrooms of the hotel. Switch to Cam 0 to find your suitcase looping around on the path marked ‘A’.

American Arcadia Walkthrough - Chapter 2 (Scenes 9-11)

Close the barrier on the right side of the screen to stop this loop, and then switch to Cam 1.

Here, reverse the conveyor belt on the lower side of the screen. Open the barrier to the right to let the suitcase through.

American Arcadia Walkthrough - Chapter 2 (Scenes 9-11)

Now switch to Cam 2 and rotate the central carousel once. The suitcase should now be facing the route marked ‘B’. Reverse the direction to send the suitcase into route B.

Quickly switch to Cam 3 and switch the barrier here to stop the suitcase from entering path D.

American Arcadia Walkthrough - Chapter 2 (Scenes 9-11)

Now switch to Cam 4. Reverse the conveyor direction and open the barrier. Just after the suitcase passes the barrier, lower the barrier again and reverse the conveyor direction again.

This way, your suitcase should be on its way to the exit marked ‘To Rooms’.

American Arcadia Walkthrough - Chapter 2 (Scenes 9-11)

As Trevor, interact with the suitcase and go left. You can free the poor service bot if you’d like – you’ll get an achievement for it.

Continue left to enter the elevator. Once you’re out, keep running as far right as you can.

American Arcadia Walkthrough - Chapter 2 (Scenes 9-11)

Scene 11

When you regain control, you’ll control both Angela and Trevor at once. This is a very tricky section, so begin by moving right as Trevor.

American Arcadia Walkthrough - Chapter 2 (Scenes 9-11)

After you’re introduced to Javert, go right and hide in the crowd. Pay attention to Trevor’s screen so that you’re not spotted by the agents. You can hide behind the red plants or in the crowd.

Later, you can also hide behind fountains when they’re blocking the agents’ views.

American Arcadia Walkthrough - Chapter 2 (Scenes 9-11)

Note that you must also answer Javert’s questions as you go. To do this, you have to stare at the option of your choice on the monitor to the right. This means that you will often have to control Trevor without being able to see him consistently.

American Arcadia Walkthrough - Chapter 2 (Scenes 9-11)

The segment will end once Trevor is to the far right and back with the rest of the group. Continue right to get into the bus and that will conclude Chapter 2.
