Ridley Tank Room
|Adjacent rooms||Ridley's Room|
Higher-level runners will often skip this e-tank in PB attempts, instead relying on Ridley's drops to get them out of Lower Norfair.
In a race environment however, this e-tank can be valuable. A runner who's taking their time in the Lower Norfair escape in order to survive might waste more time than if they had taken the e-tank, and then just taken the hits from the Kihunters along the way.
If you jump from this room through Ridley's Room, that can save some time over walljumping up from the Ridley's platform.
