Pool Area – Go to the right and go to the other end of the room. Enter the hallway at the back. Take one of the glasses on the cart. Exit the hallway. Go to Kate’s right and enter the dining room.

Dining Room – See an automaton in the middle of the room. His name is James. He is the automaton nurse. Speak to him about all topics. Madame Romanski is outside on the pier. Exit and go to the pier door which is near where you came in. There is a control box that looks like a cash register. You will have to punch in four numbers and then pull the handle. From the guestbook, we saw that Helena’s access code is 1270. Enter 1270 and pull the handle.

The door doesn’t open. That’s odd. Exit the dining room and go straight across. This door was locked before and is now open.

Try to exit the location and the receptionist will show up and try to remove Kate. Helena speaks up and allows Kate to stay. To the left of where Helena is sitting is a bell. Click on the bell and pull the chain to ring it. James will not be able to hear it. Examine the bell again. Click on the actual bell to take it.

Dining Room – Speak to James. Kate will tell him he can borrow her mask to go get Helena. Kate’s mother calls. At the end of the conversation, Helena is wheeled in. Speak to her about all topics. It turns out she can’t sing anymore. But she could if Kate can make a cocktail she once got in Paris at the Hotel Meurizt. Remember the hotel brochure you picked up at the front desk. Examine it in inventory. See the number 46433643 next to The Meurizt. Click on the cell phone in inventory and dial 46433643. Click on send. Kate asks for Mr. George. Unfortunately he doesn’t work there anymore. The current barman tries to help. He mentions a drink call the Blue Helena. He gives Kate the recipe.

Blue Helena Recipe
On measure of vodka
One measure of Blue Curacao,
One measure of Honey
A Dash of Lime and Ice Cubes

Note: The recipe you’re given states the use of lime. Do not bother looking for lime. You will use lemon instead.

Bar -- Open the panel on the bottom right side of the bar. Take the lemon and the honey. Take a look at the honey in inventory. It’s crystallized and may not work properly. Go out to the pool area. On the side of the pool are some men playing chess. To the right of them is a hot tub of sort. Try putting the honey in the water. It doesn’t seem to work. Maybe it’s not hot enough. Look behind the hot tub for a valve. Turn the valve and the water will heat up. Use the honey on the water. Go back to the bar.

There are 7 notes on the keyboard of the bar. There are 3 open slots on the bar where you can put the 3 items you found. Starting at the left, place the lemon, vodka and honey into their slots.

Take the rolled up piece of paper. It’s a musical score of liquor.

Starting at rum (1) and going up to Vermouth (7) are all liquors under the bass clef. Starting at Tequila (1) going up to White wine (7) are under the treble clef. This is important to know for the settings on the bar. If you look at your recipe, it includes Vodka and Blue Curacao. Vodka is listed 2nd under the bass clef and Blue Curacao is listed 3rd under the treble clef.

Click on the I/O button
Place the switch to the bass clef
Click on the 2nd key

Helena drinks it and her voice is returned but she is doubtful of it. Speak to Helena again until James mentions she used to be able to break crystal with her voice. Place the crystal glass from inventory on the end of the bar. Speak to Helena again and she will sing until the glass breaks. She now believes in her voice and will travel with you. Return to the airship.

Air Ship – Enter the airship. Olivia calls. Apparently she called to tell Kate she cheated with Kate’s fiancé. How nice to know. After the conversation ends, Helena arrives to board the airship to go back to see Serguei. Watch Helena’s comeback performance. At the end of the performance, a cage drops from the ceiling around her.

Warehouse – Go up to the cage and speak to Helena. Examine the lock on the cage. Use the metal sheers to cut the lock off. Examine the piano automaton inside the cage. Use the screwdriver on the hands to remove them. Exit the cage and go down the steps. Move forward and Helena is waiting by the big door. Speak to Helena and Kate automatically opens the door. Helena steps in and another gate crashes down. Kate is trapped inside. Speak to Helena to give her Oscar’s hands. Now, Kate has to find a way out. Get into the elevator at the right which leads to the mine.

Mine -- Run forward to the elevator at the other end. Hear a blast go off behind you. Get to the elevator shaft and pull the lever. The elevator arrives but there is a bomb in it. Kate runs as the bomb goes off. Go back towards the elevator that just blew up. On the way, see a large pipe opening on the side. Use the pipe to crawl through to the outside. Run and get on the train.

Train – Go all the way to the front of the train to speak to Oscar. He is ready. Get on the train and get ready for departure. The phone rings. It’s Dan, the fiancé. End the conversation and exit the train. The train still has not departed. Speak to Oscar at the front of the train. There are large rods protruding from the huge automaton and the path is completely blocked. Go back to the mine entrance.

Mine Entrance -- One of the boxes near the entrance is now open. Examine the box and take the dynamite. Go back to the automaton blocking the train. Use the bomb on the leg of the automaton. Watch the cut scene of the automaton blowing up and the train taking off.


Train – Exit the train. Walk to the front of the train and speak to Oscar. The train needs to be wound again. See the winding mechanism behind Oscar. Click on the wheel and then pull the lever to wind the train. Speak to Oscar again. He tells you to get seated on the train. Before you can move, the receptionist comes out to tell Kate a package is waiting for her at the reception desk. Go through the courtyard into the hotel.

Hotel Lobby – Examine the box at the far end of the reception desk. It is a small mammoth automaton. The phone rings. It’s Kate boss to yell at her again. End the conversation and the front desk phone rings. Helena wants to see Kate in the hotel bar.

Dining Room – Speak to Helena. She tells Kate the plane with the hotel supplies has arrived. Kate should go check it out. Walk outside to the pier.

Hotel Pier – There is an old man sitting on a bench. Speak to him. The boss calls again. Hans will speak to Kate again.
