Kema Zoos is one of the many Shrines located throughout Zelda: Breath of the Wild. After reaching it by completing the Silent Swordswomen quest, the challenge inside, named the A Delayed Puzzle trial, is a puzzle that has you use magnesis on an electrified metal orb to reach the exit. Get it right, and you'll walk out a success.

Where to find Kema Zoos and The Silent Swordswomen quest

The Kema Zoos shrine is located within the Wasteland region, specifically hidden in the sandstorm to the north-west of Gerudo Town. To get there, follow the statues of pointing Swordswomen in the desert.


Alternatively, simply exit Gerudo Town via the north gate, and point yourself directly north-west. Keep trudging through the desert, including the sandstorm that wipes out your ability to use the in-game map, and you'll get there.


The pointing statues help if you get a little lost, but otherwise simply look out for a giant rack of ribs in the desert, and the shrine's found just inside that.


Kema Zoos and A Delayed Puzzle trial solution

Inside the shrine, there's only a short puzzle to complete. First off, stand on the central ramped podium, just to the right hand side, and catch the electrified sphere using magnesis when it comes within range.


Take that over to the left-hand side, and drop it into the cage in the back-left that contains a kind of conductor for the electricity.

We also have a DLC 1 guide and DLC 2 guide, including all Tingle, Majora's Mask, Phantom, Midna outfit locations.

This will open up the nearby gate, allowing you to access a chest containing a Moonlight Scimitar.


Pick the ball back up with magnesis and carry it back to the right of the room. In the back-right is another conductor - leave the sphere resting against that.


The exit will now be clear, and you're all done!
