Secret Bonus Level

The Pirates of the Caribbean: The Ride

How to find the Secret Bonus Level? The Ride is a secret level, which is very difficult to get to! Here’s a check list of things to do…

You’ll first need to collect 84 Gold Bricks, in order to assemble the bricks next to the cannons in the Tavern area into a gold mast, which will open The Ride level. So revisit this area once you have:

  • Completed all 20 levels in Story mode;
  • Earned True Pirate in all 20 levels. Smash everything for studs. Use Red Hat Treasure 2x or higher to get this easily. For hat multipliers you can use our Red Hats locations guide;
  • Collected all 200 Ships in a Bottle Minikits. For this you can use our Ships in a Bottle Minikits locations guide;
  • Found all 160 compass items. Finish the game in Story mode once first, then in Freeplay the game will give you the best characters to complete a level with, these will allow you to access all the hidden areas that will be pointed out by the compass.

You will need to complete this secret level in order to get the 85 and final Gold Brick. Once you have built the gold mast that needs 84 Gold Bricks, walk up the stairs and head through the back passageway that was blocked by a gold gate. This gold gate is the entrance to The Ride.

Here’s The Ride walkthrough:

The Ride has 3 different areas:

  • The first area you must defeat 2 enemies from the cursed Black Pearl crew and then finally Captain Barbossa. Once you defeat Captain Barbossa, the gate opens to allow you to continue. Get in the boat and head to the 2nd area.
  • At the 2nd area of The Ride you will face the Flying Dutchman crew. Defeat the 2 of them and then defeat Davy Jones. Once you defeat him, get on the next boat and head towards the finally, 3rd area.
  • At the final area of The Ride you will face the crew of the Queen Anne’s Revenge. Afterwards you will need to defeat her captain, Blackbeard. Once you have defeated him, get back on the boat and exit the level to earn the final 85th Gold Brick. (If you’re on Xbox 360/PS3 it’ll earn you the “Take What You Can” Achievement/Trophy.)

What kind of Equipment and Abilities are in the game?

Sword: Having your sword is a great weapon, characters who have swords will only be able to activate switches or initiate duels. Switches will only be able to be activated by character with a sword. The character with the sword will automatically use the sword to make a makeshift lever.

Dueling: When you come across another character that has a sword it will appear above the enemy. You will need to accept the challenge. If you accept your dueling challenge with your enemy, you will need to follow your on screen instruction to attack your enemy. Every time you attack your enemy, your enemy will lose one of their hearts. If you defeat all your enemies hearts you will win this duel!

Duel Wield: Some of the Characters have a skill which will allow them to wield two swords at a time. This will allow the characters to use the swords to climb the walls.

Throwing Weapons: Throwing Weapons are a basic attack weapons. Some of the characters will be able to use spears and grenades. You will need to aim for the target and use your weapons to hit it. These weapons are not only good for targeting, they are also very useful under the right attack!.

Pistol and Muskets: These weapons allow the characters to have a great range attack. Characters that are holding these weapons will be able to shoot targets. If you hold your attack button, this will activate a targeting reticule. You will be able to move it across three targets at a time. Let go of the button and take down the enemies.

Compass: You will be able to use the compass to find objects that are hidden. Activate your compass and follow the needle. This will locate your hidden object to its EXACT location.

Do you have problems getting the compass to work?

1. Zizzybob called customer service and got this answer: When using the compass you cannot be directly on top of, or even too near to the markers on the ground.
2. We personally found that holding down the compass button and pushing toward the desired item until a blue ring surrounds it worked best, but we should say it was very hit and miss.
