Early in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, as you explore the Forest on your quest to find Menolias after reaching the Haven, you’ll encounter a water wheel puzzle. This happens shortly after navigating a challenging series of obstacles and meeting a warrior named Nojan, who gives you the “The Lost Warriors” side quest.
Our Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown Water Wheel guide will help you solve this puzzle and open the door to the Hyrcanian Forest.
How to Solve POP Lost Crown Water Wheel Puzzle?
To solve the Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown Water Wheel puzzle, start by jumping onto the bottom center pole between the two pressure plates. Move around the pole to build momentum, then jump to the pole in the top left corner.
From the second pole, rotate, jump, and grab the wall handle. Release the handle, jump upward, and hit the ceiling switch. Make sure your timing is precise.
When you reach the top, strategically jump to avoid falling before activating the switch.
After striking it, the hatch on the left side will open. Stepping onto the pressure plate increases the water pressure on the left.
The next move is to stand on the left plate and shift both poles to the right side to repeat the process. To simplify this step, imagine the Wheel as a clock. Place one pole at 3 o’clock and the other at 6 o’clock. Jump onto the first pole, rotate, then hop onto the second pole slightly to the right.
After spinning around the pole and hitting the ceiling switch, the water pressure on the right side increases with the opened hatch.
Look right to find two gears; adjust the upper one with a pole to 12 o’clock by standing on the right pressure plate. Use the pressure plate to set both Water Wheel poles to 3 o’clock and 6 o’clock.
For the final step, start by jumping on the first pole, rotate, then jump onto the second pole (at 3 o’clock), and finally onto the pole at 12 o’clock. Gain momentum, jump, and grab the handle on the right wall. Pull down the lever to open the door.
