The Phantom Hatch is a non-member den item.


The Phantom Hatch is a large, purple hatch that appears to be water-tight. At the base of the hatch are four purple pipes with some phantom sludge on them. The top of the hatch has a large, purple cog wheel that can rotate to open the hatch. If activated by a player, the hatch will begin to rotate and open; when activated a second time, the hatch closes. This item comes in only one variety.

Adventure Element[]

In some of the ocean adventures, this is a sealed obstacle that must be opened to continue. The player is often required to release other trapped animals and enlist their help in swirling to open the hatch.


The Phantom Hatch was initially released on June 26, 2014, as the top middle hard mode completion prize from Bubble Trouble and will leave on an unknown date.

  • This item was originally named the Large Hatch; it is unclear why it was renamed.
  • The adventure version of this item is much larger than the den item.
  • In the adventure The Front Lines, there is a different obstacle that is also named the "Phantom Hatch"; however, that obstacle is opened by finding a missing "Valve".
