Use Button-Only Controls

Zelda Skyward Sword HD - Use Button-Only Controls

It is recommended to use button-only controls when playing Skydiving Roulette. Using it allows you to make precise movements while free-falling, making it easier to land on a specific Rupee tile.

Using the motion controls may cause unintentional movements while free-falling, making the minigame more difficult.

Move to the Center as Much as Possible

Zelda Skyward Sword HD - Move to the Center
After passing through a Fortune Ring and avoiding Dodoh Balls, be sure to move to the center as much as possible.

Returning to the center makes it easier to check the location of the next Fortune Ring and Dodoh Balls, and check the rotation of the wheel.

Look at the Location of the Tile After Passing the Last Ring

After passing through the last ring, note the location of the tile you want to land on the wheel. You can press the Home button to pause the minigame at this time.

The tiles usually move at approximately 3/4 in a counter-clockwise position, meaning if the Pink and Blue tile is at the 11:00 position, it will usually move at the 4:00 position once you land on the wheel. Avoid diving as you may fall too fast and land on the wrong tile.

Do Not Chase After the Tile

If there is a specific tile you want to land on, position yourself ahead of the direction of the rotation to easily land on the square.

The most effective way to land on a tile is to watch the speed of the wheel and align yourself with the tile before landing.

Land near the edge of the island

The wheel's edges have a wider space compared to the inner area of each tile, so be sure to aim for that area to increase the chances of landing on a specific tile.
