The Prison Compound is an area in Mayahem Temple in Banjo-Tooie. Here in the prison compound, there is a prison that has a secret connection to Glitter Gulch Mine. You cannot access it before entering Glitter Gulch Mine's main entrance, however. This is due to the inability to destroy the boulder blocking the entrance that has to be destroyed with Bill Drill, a move learned inside the mine. Dilberta the Mole is stuck here after "...lookin' for gold...". After freeing her and following her to Bullion Bill, the duo receive a jiggy.

Points of Interest


  • Quicksand: A jiggy is also available here across a swamp area through which Banjo and Kazooie cannot pass. This is due to the Dragunda who lives in it, and if they try to cross, they are spit back to dry land after losing 1 honeycomb. To cross, they must climb on top of the prison cell and climb along a ledge (only after learning Grip Grab from Jamjars) then drop onto a ledge where some Wading Boots wait to enable the crossing. A second pair of boots resides in a small alcove behind the pedestal.
  • Columns Vault Pillars: After either climbing along a ledge or breaking open a boulder using Talon Torpedo, five large columns stand, along with a large boulder (breakable with Bill Drill) that sits above the entrance to the Columns Vault. Atop the highest pillar resides the area's second and last jiggy. After entering the Vault, the player must fire grenade eggs at the pillars in the correct order, allowing them to vibrate and have the jiggy bounce down to the lowest pillar for easy access. There is a 40-second timer and will be reset if the pillars are hit in the correct sequence. If the timer hits zero, the jiggy will respawn to the highest pillar and the player will be required to start over. Alternately, the jiggy can be accessed by using a well-aimed Clockwork Kazooie Egg or with well-timed double jumps and Beak-Buster moves.
