You need to use the suction to pull the wheel. You don’t need to touch it with your hands. Since you pass through bars and stuff, you would have trouble grabbing it anyway. Use Rz to suck the crank to lift the cage up.


  1. So I noticed that instead of r on my ninetendo I press down the direction stick. If you press down once it activates gooigi and when you do it twice it deactivates

  2. The way you switch back to Luigi without the cage falling back down is as soon as you have Gooigi’s suction positioned on the wheel, you have to immediately press R (right stick) and switch back to Luigi so that Gooigi’s suction gets stuck on the wheel when he’s deactivated and therefore Luigi can now walk out from underneath the trap.

  3. I have the same problem! Any figure it out? If I press r, nothing happens. Luigi is still in the cage and no gooigi!?

  4. We solved the problem with pressing down on the direction stick on the right side of the controller 1 time. Make sure you go around the back of the wheel and don’t melt into the water
