9:05 P.M.

You notice a break in the music coming from the ballroom. You hear a siren pulling up to the front of the house and see flashing blue light.

You kick the carrot vigorously, then run towards the west and duck around the last bend of the maze. You slowly peek around the corner of the hedge to see if anything has happened. Nothing seems to have changed.

You go back to the statue and fool some more with the carrot, grabbing it and wiggling it and stuff. Suddenly, it pivots and clicks to one side. Before you can duck around the corner again, there is a mechanical whir and a panel in the base of the statue slides away, revealing a ladder leading down into darkness.
