Collect and manufacture the necessary materials

Before starting to build a secret passage in Minecraft, it is important to collect all the materials useful for the realization of the project.

First you will need some crushed stone to build stone blocks. You can replace this material with anyone, depending on where you need to make the secret passage. A stone block is obtained from the processing of crushed stone in the furnace, the basic material that is obtained by digging the stone.

In addition to stone, you will need redstone, an essential material for making circuits. The redstone dust, in fact, together with the other elements of the circuits, such as repeaters, comparators or observers, make it possible to create simple or complex mechanisms, which can automate some aspects of the game. The Redstone is obtained by extracting it from the crude Redstone or collecting it within the chests scattered around the world of Minecraft.

To create the opening and closing mechanism of the secret passage, you will need the sticky pistons. Unlike normal pistons, sticky ones allow you to keep the block on them “glued” to the platform. A piston is crafted in a workbench by putting together four units of crushed stone, three units of wooden planks, one iron ingot, and one unit of redstone. After building the piston, place it back on the workbench, along with a slime ball, which is obtained by defeating the slimes.

In addition to these materials, you must craft a redstone torch in a workbench, using a stick and a unit of Redstone. In addition, the redstone booster is essential, which you can obtain via three units of stone blocks, two redstone torches and one unit of redstone , placed in a workbench.

Finally, it will be necessary to create levers, which will serve as a switch for activating and deactivating the opening and closing mechanism of the secret passage. These are created in the workbench, using a stick and a unit of crushed stone.

Building a secret passage

Now that you’ve got all the materials you need, it’s time to start building the secret passage. First, cut an area 5 blocks long6 blocks deep and 4 blocks high, which will contain the mechanism to open and close the access.

Now, ignore the first line of the area and place two rows of two stone blocks instead, so they can help you place the sticky Pistons towards the side of the area. On two of these pistons, place two more, but this time facing the access area.

Once this is done, place three stone blocks on the pistons and then add another five blocks to follow, forming a sort of “U”. On this it will be necessary to place an alternating redstone line with two redstone repeaters, in order to enhance the signal and delay the inputs. You will need to interact on the repeaters in order to set the maximum delay.

At this point, you have to extend the redstone connection, in order to create the activation point on the wall that triggers the whole mechanism. To do this, use another 6 stone blocks to build a ladder that goes down to the ground and place the redstone on it.

Now, all that remains is to build a stone block on the first line of the area and install a redstone torch in its back; then add a lever on the front face of the block, so that it can activate and deactivate the redstone torch. In this way, you will have created an external switch for opening and closing the secret passage.

In addition to the external button, you must also create an internal one, otherwise you will not be able to exit once you enter. To do this, from the previously created stone ladder, place another block on which to apply redstone , until you reach the ground. Then add a second block on which you will place a lever.

Well: we’re almost there! All that remains is to fill all the visible holes with stone blocks. First, build a wall on the first row of the area, which will be 5 × 4 in size. Now, interact on the lever, in order to open the secret passage and enter inside. He then uses the stone blocks to hide the visible redstone circuit.

If you have carried out the procedure I have indicated to the letter, you will have built a secret wall passage, which can be activated by means of a lever both external and internal to it. You can hide the lever by using greenery or by extending the redstone circuit to another room or by using other mechanisms, such as push buttons or pressure plates.

Tips for building a secret passage

In addition to the procedure that I indicated in the previous chapter, there are many other types of secret passages that can be created in Minecraft. In this regard, I suggest you consult the  Minecraft Wiki, where there are several ideas (in English) on how to create a secret access to your shelter.

Furthermore, if you need further suggestions and ideas, from which to take inspiration to realize your secret passage, I suggest you consult the video-sharing platform, YouTube. After reaching the official YouTube site, in the search bar at the top, type the terms ” minecraft secret passage ” or ” minecraft secret passage ” in English. By doing so, you will be shown many videos made by Minecraft fans, which you can consult to get an idea of ​​the project to be carried out.
