Game mechanic



Trapdoors are used to drop from various locations in Virtual Scotland into a spider den or to another, specifically named location.

Trapdoors are also used to drop from the Winter wonderland into the North Pole during celebration week special events.


Your setup must have the trapdoor stat in it, to give you the chance to find a trapdoor.

Normal location trapdoors

You must have at least 700,000 XP and be in Loch Muir to be able to encounter a trapdoor and fall into a spider den.

Special events trapdoors

There two trapdoor locations for —for Haunted week special events: The looticrous laboratory of Lord McDoyle (from Castle McDoyle in Borders) and Boiler room (from Egsby Castle in Central).

For Celebration week special events, the winter wonderland has a trapdoor to the North pole.

When you are trying to find a trapdoor, your primary setup concerns are two:

  • Trapdoor stat — Items with this stat on them give you a chance to encounter the trapdoor in one of the locations that host them. The more items with the stat you have, the better your chance of encountering the trapdoor, because the chance for each item is added to the chance for all other items in your setup.
  • Oblivion — Items with this stat on them increase the time you are able to stay in the spider den once you travel through the trapdoor. The more items with this stat that you have, the longer you can stay in the spider den or named destination, because all of the added time is added on to the default time span for your stay.

Those two stat pages contain complete lists of all the items with the trapdoor stat and/or the oblivion stat on them.

Once you've dropped through the door ...

Once you have dropped through a trapdoor, you will want to change your setup. See the spider den page, or the specific page for one of the named destinations—Egsby Castle, North Pole, Dark Dimension, or Fairy pools—for more setup details and information.
