Ectoplasmic Estate
Theme Haunted Mansion
Required Jiggy-1 3 (Activation: 11)
Transformation Ghost Bear
Ectoplasmic Estate is the third level of Banjo-Kazooie: Gruntopolis, missing 3 Jiggies on its Puzzle and requiring 11 to be activated. The entrance is a large mansion atop a rather spooky hill which requires Fire Eggs to be reached. A third path from the Main Square leads up a hill just opposite of Spiral Mountain; the winding path which climbs the hill leads to an eventual locked gate which would normally be impassible, if not for the fact that a can of oil sits next to it and can be detonated with Fire eggs.

Points of Interest


The Puzzle for Ectoplasmic Estate may be found in the sewers underneath Main Street.


The estate is not all that large, and in fact would accomodate people of Banjo's and Kazooie's size. The foyer has two staircases up either wall, which then turn inward and converge towards the middle and lead to the second floor from there; primarily Bedrooms are located up there, but one area also leads to a rather large room containing a large Spider Web. Nimbo Limbo's Yurt can also be found on the second floor, taking up an entire room. The first floor has a diverging path, with three possible directions, to each side and straight through a middle door. The middle door leads directly into a T-shaped hallway. Either of the side doors leads to either the Parlor and Dining Hall, the latter of which connects to a Kitchen, and both of which will lead into the ends of the T-shaped hallway. To the left and right of the long stretch of the hallway can be found a Living Room and a Ballroom, and the end opens up into the Backyard. From the Backyard, it is possible to enter the Cellar through a wodden door which must first be opened. The basement contains a Rec Room and Weight Room, as well as access doors to the Boiler Room and the Nightmare Hall; the Nightmare Hall is full of angry ghosts that will harm the duo if they try to pass through without the Wonderwing or as a Ghost Bear.
