This is the twenty-third level in Co-op mode of Portal 2 and the eighth level in the course. The chamber requires advanced knowledge the Hard Light Bridges, timing skills and Flinging. Falling to your death is present as the primary hazard.

Summary

This level consists of three rooms taking place outside the official test chambers. The first room isn't much of a challenge to figure out, retrieve the Edgeless Safety Cube and place it in the small space next to the door. In the second room the players must utilize the Hard Light Bridge twice for the Safety Cube and that requires some timing skills as well as thinking about how the Light Bridge could be used there. The final room is not obvious at first glance. The spaceous room hides the correct place for the Light Bridge placement well. Solving the room requires the players to use the Light Bridge along with Flinging technique.

As soon as one of the Safety Cubes hits the vertical Hard Light Bridge going through your portal, place the portal from the ceiling pillar to the pillar right next to you. Wait for the Safety Cube to roll on the Light Bridge next to the button and take it to the Discouragement Beam near the door.
