As Alice entered Pandemonium, she was greeted by the Cheshire Cat who discussed the use of hanging ropes with her. She eventually found Mayor Elder and asked him to help her get inside the Fortress of Doors. The mayor questioned why Alice had pursued him for wisdom when he was not wise but merely old. Alice explained that all she wished was to shrink herself, and the Gnome realized that he can do it, but for a price.
He told Alice that she must go through the mine shafts in order to find a key so that he would return the favor. She proceeded to the mine shafts by riding one of the carts and eventually killed the Card Guards protecting the key. Afterwards, Alice went to the mayor again and they rode off to the Fortress of Doors together.
Similar to Dementia, Pandemonium consisted of a primarily blue, green, and gray color scheme to a city created from stone and wood. The area was teeming with acid, however, unlike Dementia, the platforms must be navigated using ropes rather than jumping. Pandemonium also had a lot more mine carts and tunnels and fewer shops and houses.
