Castle Town Sewers,[name reference needed] also known as the Castle's Waterway,[1] and the Underground Waterway,[2] is a location in Twilight Princess.

Features and Overview[]

As its name suggests, the Castle Town Sewers are the underground waterways of Hyrule Castle Town which connects to Hyrule Castle. Link only explores the Castle Town Sewers in his Wolf form. When Link is captured by the Shadow Beasts, he is imprisoned in a jail cell inside the Castle Town Sewers. Here, Link meets Princess Midna for the first time, who frees Link. Princess Midna tells Link that she wishes to introduce him to someone, and the two begin searching for an exit from the Castle Town Sewers.[3] As Princess Midna and Link traverse the Castle Town Sewers, they must lower and raise the water levels of the underground passageway in order to eventually exit through a small tunnel at the far end. At the edge of the Castle Town Sewers is a long, spiraling staircase which Link must cross via ropes to reach the rooftops of Hyrule Castle. By jumping from rooftop to rooftop, Link eventually reaches the tower in which Princess Zelda is imprisoned.

Later in Link's quest, Princess Midna is gravely injured by Zant, and Link must once again go through the Castle Town Sewers to take the dying Princess Midna to Princess Zelda. He enters them through a secret passageway from Telma's Bar, which leads to Jovani's House and then to the underground waterway.[4][5] Here, Link explores a new section of the Castle Town Sewers which is infested with Skulltulas as well as cobwebs that he must burn in order to proceed. This connects to the area in which Link was imprisoned near the beginning of his quest.

Once Link reaches Princess Zelda for the second time, he will be unable to return to the Castle Town Sewers again.
