Gatanisis Shrine Walkthrough

The puzzle associated with the Gatanisis shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is known as A Well-Timed Bounce. This puzzle is all about timing and should be easy if you have good instincts. If not, no worries—we have you covered.

1. Wait for the massive ball to drop on the spring platform. It will press the platform down, and it will soon return to its original state.

2. Use the Recall ability on the bouncy platform when the ball is halfway past the platform.

3. This will make the ball bounce and hit the orange target ring on the other side of the bouncy platform.

4. If you miss, don’t try. Try again until you get the timing right. Once the target is hit, the door to the altar room will open.


You can also hit the orange receptacle with bomb arrows to achieve the same goal.

5. Before proceeding, go to the farthest end of the bouncy platform and use the Ascend ability on the now-green target ring. Above, there is a treasure chest with 5x bomb flowers.

6. Jump and glide to your right to reach the altar room. Interact with Rauru and Sonia’s statues to earn a Light of blessing and finish A Well-Timed Bounce trial.
