At the start, turn around and climb up the stairs. As you reach the second step, the bars protecting the teleporter behind you will raise, allowing you to take it. You'll arrive at a random place in the level, having to collect three keys. The red key is on the southeast and the yellow and blue keys are located to the northwest. For the red key, enter its room and flip the switch on the west wall to lower the lift next to it. Ride the lift up and collect the red key.

To grab the yellow key, make your way towards the opposite corner of the level and simply press the switch in front of it to lower its platform. As for the blue key, from the yellow key room drop down from the windows to the west, then turn left and go forward until you're in front of a wall. Face left and pick up the key. With all three keys in hand, from the blue key's location climb up the stairs and follow the path until you see stairs going up to your right. Climb them up, then turn left and use the switch on the right side to raise the bars. Finally, enter the exit teleporter ahead.

  1. At the start, to your right is a room you'll need the red key to access. Once you collect that key, return to this location and flip the switch to raise the bars. If you look to the west of the pedestal in the middle of this room, you can see a short tunnel with a supercharge. Use the pedestal to jump into the tunnel, then collect the item to tag the secret.
