Using an ascending Sponge-Glide in a corner near the Goo Lagoon taxi pad, the player can bounce on top of the fence's invisible wall in that area. From here, the player must jump to an invisible wall slightly to the right, before moving forwarding and bashing off another invisible wall. From here, it is possible to land on top of Shady Shoals and collect the spatula. This allows the player to access the 2nd area of the hub, while also collecting the spatula. Additionally, the player no longer needs active the cutscene which shows the floating blocks to the player.
