Back to Trine 5
This is the first level where you’ll be playing as all three heroes. There are multiple solutions to many of the puzzles so you might find a different or more efficient way of getting past them.

Once trapped in the gazebo you’ll need to have Zoya attach a rope to one side of the contraption above and pull it down. Attach it to a box and shoot the two power sources in the ceiling.
