  2. Run along the bridge created and turn right before the ice flower cave and head towards this door.
  3. Follow the path, using the Allegro Blooms to float from island to island, until you come to the large area where you’ve fought off a plethora of enemies.
  4. Go through the door pictured below.
  5. Hit the drum and run along the bridge until you come to another drum. Hit it.
  6. Don’t run over this new bridge. Turn around and go back through the door you came through.
