Chris Houlihan's room in ALttP!

I remember reading up on this secret room years back, and I tried it out myself. It's a secret room that has a sign in it that honors Chris Houlihan, a fan that won a contest in Nintendo Power. I'm sure most of you have heard of this, but how many of you have actually gotten to the room fast enough to uncover it??

It's really cool, if you haven't tried it out, read up on it and try it out. Although you don't get anything, it's neat to see a room that developers really didn't expect you to see.

Whoa, you're not actually Chris Houlihan are you?? That would be sweet if you are, though!!

Have you been to the room?

Re: Chris Houlihan's room in ALttP!

No I am not Chris Houlihan. And Yes I have been to that room. Its prety cool, its a room full of blue rupees. Its just neat that it is a secret in the game that is so random, yet hard to get to if you don't know how to get there.

Yeah, it's pretty interesting. But I'm curious to know what Chris Houlihan does nowadays and if he's still a fan...hm...

Re: Chris Houlihan's room in ALttP!

Yeah, you're supposed to start a game at the sanctuary and race, using the paegasus boots, to the bush where Link goes into the sewers near the beginning of the game. Well, if you run their fast enough (And you have to do it quite fast, like immediately dash there upon starting a game from the sanctuary) and run into the hole, you'll fall into the room. It's full of rupees and has a sign commemorating him. Very cool easter egg. I advise trying it when you're bored or something. It may take a few tries, it took me like 19 minutes or so.

Re: Chris Houlihan's room in ALttP!

It can happen on any screen where the action is going too fast for the game to load, so yes, it is timed. I think its harder to work on the VC and GBA as they both load faster.

Re: Chris Houlihan's room in ALttP!

@ Raine:

Yes, you're timed, although I'm not sure of the exact requirements. I do know that you have to go from the sanctuary to the bush in without encountering any hiccups. For example, if you run into a tree or enemy, you're pretty much screwed, that's how fast you have to do it.

Additionally, every single chance that you have to use to use the pegasus boots, you pretty much have to. What I mean by that is, if there's any sort of straightaway on your way there, you better be dashing the whole. You will come across a part where there's a bunch of trees scattered around, and when you're in there, you won't be able to. But other than that, you have to get there as fast as the game will allow you, using pegasus most of the time. It's a pretty tough feat, and the bulk of understanding it comes from first knowing the quickest route there. I know that once you exit the sanctuary, you go left like 2 or 3 screens, then go down (whereupon you'll encounter the aforementioned trees) and after that you'll know the environment well enough to know where you're at.

Also, if you are still trying it, be aware that you HAVE to dash into the bush and fall in. You can't just dash up near it, then hack the bush and drop in. you must be lined up with it, dash towards it with the boots, and while running, slash the bush, thus making you fall in during the process.

BTW, you cannot access the Chris Houlihan Room in the GBA version, unless you have a hacking device.

Re: Chris Houlihan's room in ALttP!

For the Chris Houlihan room, supposedly it was taken out for the GBA, and VC. I am not sure if somebody says that because they can't get it or what. But I don't think you can get it in the GBA or VC, only the SNES version.

Re: Chris Houlihan's room in ALttP!

I remember reading about this room as a kid. And I also remember that you can get there from the Death Mountain, and I actually managed to do it. It was some sort of trick, where you had to jump from a cliff to get to a platform under the cliff.. Nevertheless, I can't recall which cliff it was. I'll try to remember. Till the next post.

Whoa, I never heard of that!! If you indeed remember how you did it, please clue us in. I'd be very interested in trying it out. Secrets like these just intrigue me. I wish Nintendo would do more of them.

Re: Chris Houlihan's room in ALttP!

Does anyone know if it is in the GBA version? I have never gotten this room, partially because my SNES doesn't work. But can you get to the Chris Houlihan room in the GBA one?

Supposedly, it was taken out in the GBA version. So, no.

I've never been there, although I've heard of it. I've never tried to get in there either.
