Found this door by accident. There is a moon door that appears on the side wall of the weeping waterfall node.

Does anyone know whether it has any use? Or is it just an Easter egg from Lord of the Rings, as it only shows up at night?


The door can be opened using its inscription as a cipher.


That door is only illuminated at night, but you can enter the code any time of day: ← LT ← → RT ↓ ↑ LT. This code is different from that of the nearby pillar.

"moon door"


A translation guide from the Fez wiki states the following:

Read in normal vertical orientation, however, the symbols translate thusly:

Fez cypher

Use the above cypher when reading rune sequences from TOP to BOTTOM. You must stand under the tablet with runes, or under a set of runes on a wall, and tap the button combinations on the controller with less than a second of time in between for the code to work. You will get the Cryptographer Achievement the first time you input a code correctly.

  • sooo... LEFT, LT, RIGHT, RT, UP, A, DOWN, RT, RT ?? Apr 17 '12 at 2:13
  • That's for the waterfall door, not the "moon" door.

  • As @Sean's screenshot shows, you want: Left, Clockwise(A), Left, Right, Anticlockwise(D), Down Up, Clockwise(A) for moon door. I plain forgot the LOTR reference and hence didn't wait around for nighttime when it disappeared. Thanks Sean. May 3 '14 at 5:02
  • Does not work for me. After I rotate left (LT), take a step left and back right and then rotate back (RT) I don't stand in front of the door anymore. What am I doing wrong?
