The SpongeBob: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated objective Tiki Roundup in the Kelp Forest requires you to take part in a stone Tiki puzzle, moving them for Mr Crabs in order to gain a new Golden Spatula. The puzzle is one of the most infamously difficult ones in SpongeBob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated, but it isn’t hard to complete once you know what you’re doing.
Here’s how to find all the stone Tiki in the Tiki Roundup quest and complete the Kelp Gardens puzzle.
How to complete Tiki Roundup in SpongeBob: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated
In order to get the Golden Spatula and solve the Kelp Gardens Tiki puzzle, you need to bring each stone Tiki to the start of the puzzle and place them in the stone mouths in front of you.
When all three are activated, additional platforms will rise that will allow you to grab the Spatula and head to the next area.
Step 1: How to get the first stone Tiki
The first Tiki is undoubtedly the easiest. It’s in the area where you begin, located next to the teleportation box.
Feel free to leave it at this point, as all Tikis will reset after you die. You want to grab the most difficult Tiki first in order to save time.
Step 2: The second stone Tiki and activating the button
The second stone Tiki is the most difficult to get, as it’ll require you to bounce along leaf platforms over the deadly Goo.
To reach it, head to the left and bounce along the leaf platforms. Follow them along until you reach a ledge containing enemies, including Arf, the robot who spawns dog robots. Walk behind Arf to activate the checkpoint, then continue to your left where there are more bouncing leaf platforms.
These leaf platforms have two walls either side of them, which also contain additional ledges you can reach. Bounce along the platforms until the second-from-last leaf, which you’ll notice bounces you higher than the rest. Using this higher jump, you can now access higher leaf platforms to your left. Follow these along until you reach a button on the wall. You can then activate this to make the process of getting your third stone Tiki easier.
Drop down and continue bouncing on the leaves until you reach another ledge. Pick up the fruit and use it to destroy the sleeping sentinel robot (you can venture slightly further into the cave to find a Camper). Pay the oyster Shiny Objects to open up the path to your left and follow it, activating another checkpoint.
Continue bouncing along the leaves and you’ll promptly find another Arf. Destroy him (or avoid him altogether) and continue ahead, bouncing on the leaves until you finally reach the platform containing the second Tiki. Throw it down onto the stone mouths below.
Step 3: Getting the third stone Tiki
The third stone Tiki is very easy to obtain now that you’ve activated the button in step 2. To get the third stone Tiki, simply head directly left past the red rocket buried in the ground. The stone Tiki is located on the other side of the wall.
Using the platforms you activated in step 2, bounce along to the Tiki and pick it up. Now carefully bounce back over the leaves to the entrance area, and throw it into the final stone mouth to complete the Kelp Gardens stone Tiki Roundup puzzle.
