While soaring through the open air in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, you might have come across Fun Fun Island. This used to be the place where the island’s owner, Dodoh, ran his party games. When you meet him, he explains that he’s lost his Party Wheel. If you retrieve it, you can play his game and win rupees and even a Piece of Heart.
Polygon’s guide on how to find Dodoh’s Party Wheel in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD will show you how to locate this missing item. This guide offers detailed maps and instructions on how to find Fun Fun Island, where to find the Party Wheel, and what prizes you get for playing Dodoh’s games.
Dodoh’s Party Wheel side quest
Before you can take on this side quest, make sure you’ve already repaired Scrapper on your way to the Isle of Songs. Once you’ve completed that, you can locate Dodoh on Fun Fun Island, which is just south of Thunderhead.
On Fun Fun Island, you’ll meet Dodoh, a sad clown who has lost his Party Wheel, a key component to his island’s games.
He informs you that he’s dropped it beneath the clouds. Fi calculates that the wheel must have landed somewhere in the Lanayru Desert.
Dodoh’s Party Wheel location
To find Dodoh’s Party Wheel, head to Lanayru Desert and choose the Desert Entrance location as your drop point.
Once you land, face the minecart and destroy the pile of rocks on the left with a bomb to reveal a Timeshift Stone. When activated, the stone will reveal a patch of vines along a wall toward the desert. Climb the vines and continue forward until you reach a ledge you can hang off of.
Shimmy over the ledge until you reach a small path you can land on. Follow the path forward to find Dodoh’s Party Wheel. When you find it, Scrapper will grab it and bring it to the sky for you.
Now with the wheel in your possession, head back to your landing point and use the bird statue to return to the sky and Fun Fun Island.
Once Dodoh has his wheel back, he’ll give you five Gratitude Crystals. You can now also play Dodoh’s skydiving minigame, which can award you a Piece of Heart. His skydiving minigame consists of falling through the sky in an attempt to pass through five rings without hitting a series of floating balls. The game ends when you land on a rotating wheel with different colored rupee designs on them.
To win a heart piece, you must fly through all five rings and land on the blue and pink 50 rupee tile.
