The Carousel's Engine is the eleventh area Alucard explores in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate. This is the engine to the carousel in the Toy Maker's Funfair, and it is here that Alucard must solve another puzzle in order to save Simon.


After a tangle with a hunchback troop and quick grind on a magnetic rail, Alucard will deal with this second plot-oriented puzzle in an area designed specifically for this purpose. Whereas before he saved Simon's bacon by halting the release of deranged puppets, he'll now have to use his reflective-orb-pushing ability to redirect a laser and knock the carousel above out of commission (this is the carousel on which Simon is concurrently trapped). That is, Alucard will have slide into position several reflective orbs, their angled mirrors in conjunction pointing the laser up toward carousel's underpinnings; those orbs hovering can be shifted into alternate positions using the large room's two switches.

When the laser, whose origin is the room's bottom-right, has been properly redirected upward, a cut-scene will be activated--Simon's test of endurance will be cut short and the two heroes will again come face to face. When the scene has concluded, Alucard will be immediately carried up via elevator to the next area.
