How to Fast Travel

Travel Using Warp Pipe.png
Paper Mario: The Origami King has several towns to explore, so having a way to travel fast is very helpful! Instead of spending time walking from one location to another, you can use:

  1. Warp Pipes
  2. Fax Travel
  3. Toad Tram
  4. Eddy River Boat

If you already know how to use these methods, you can click here to jump to Fast Travel locations or how to Unlock the locations.

How to Use Warp Pipes

Warp Pipe #1
The use of Warp Pipes at the Museum in Toad Town is the same as any Pipes in the game, you jump onto it and press A to go through.

Pipe Travel Instructions

Steps to Warp Pipe Travel

Warp Pipe - Museum Blocked.png
No Mario games without interconnected plumbing! The Warp Pipes are found in the basement of the Museum in Toad Town and can take Mario to set locations around the world.

However, at first, the other end of the pipe will often be blocked. To unblock them, you have to find them on your travels and pull a sticker off them.

1 Enter the gray Pipe at the Museum in Toad Town.
2 Enter a Warp Pipe to travel to a specific Streamer area.
You can tell where you end up by the color and plate in front of the Pipes.

Or, if you're not in Toad Town:

1 Enter a Pipe from one of the areas that have them and warp back to the Museum.

How to Use Fax Travel

Fax Travel from Picnic Road.png
Fax Travel is another way to travel fast. You can go back and forth from the Main Office to any of the Satellite Offices, but it's not possible to go from one Satellite Office to another, so you might need two trips to get to your destination.

To use the Fax Machines, press A to check the Fax itself and agree to be sent elsewhere.
