The Lost Cave is an underground network of caverns under the Snow Peninsula. The cave was added as a semi-secret update in the evening of September 23, 2017, likely as a prelude to the 2017 Halloween Event.
It has two main anomalies; the Skeleton and the Strange Man, who can give players Easy Building for 10,009,000 Money. It can only be traversed with a Worklight, as it is pitch black naturally, even if it is daytime. When you exit the cave, the ambient will still be black until you descend the mountain, specifically when you touch the grass.
This cave also holds a pink block, similar to the Winter Cabin. They are both used to host scripts for the areas. The pink block is not obtainable, and is likely to break the functionality of some scripts in it if one tries to.
The Lost Cave is a maze-like biome, similar to The Maze, composed of the main room, the first corridor, the second corridor and the Strange Man's Den.
The main room is the first area the player will arrive at and the largest room in the cave. It contains a large stalagmite, which reaches the ceiling and is the first place the player will arrive at. On the side of the stalagmite are ladders that can be used to exit the cave, if the rock at the very top has not resealed. The room has a ledge to the rear, and there are several ledges above that are likely not accessible through normal means (though they contain nothing significant).
The first corridor of the maze is to the left of the second. It bends right and contains multiple smaller branches with dead ends. At the very end of this corridor, to the left side on top, lies the Skeleton. The skeleton has no dialogue (as it is dead) but stands out. It also is not a modern Roblox skeleton package but is a 2009 model that was frequently used in multiple games.
The second corridor of the maze is much larger than the first and is located to the right of it. If the player ventures along the ledge in the main room, they will come across this branch. There are multiple paths in this corridor that lead to dead-ends, but if the player follows it, they will eventually come across a large room with a pillar in the middle. Located on this pillar is a gradual staircase, that if followed will lead the player to the top of the pillar. If the player managed to hop on top of it, either with a plank or with help from another player, they will see a large gap in it, with a block on top. If the player ignites Dynamite in this pit, the block will explode and despawn, allowing the player to plank to the hole. If they do, they will come across another gap, and on the other side of the wall, the entrance to the Strange Man's Den. Typically, the player will need a plank or the help of another player to get across. The player need to plank their way up around the area to get to the entrance. Be careful that at the entrance the ground is glitchy, and if you plank there while you are in a laggy server, the plank might go partway through the ledge and become stuck, forcing the player to find their way back up to get a new plank.
Strange Man's Den
Finally, the last section of the Lost Cave is the Strange Man's Den. If the player follows the small tunnel in the wall, they will take a right turn and come into a large opening. To the left is an empty area that is slightly lower and recedes backward, and to the right is the place at which the Strange Man lies. This area is illuminated with a purple glow, with two odd, purple floating fires on either side of the Strange Man. The Strange Man sells the most expensive thing in the game; Easy Building. See Strange Man for more information on the dialogue he provides.
This cave requires many items to efficiently and safely traverse through. Although it is not expensive, it is very easy to get lost, as it is not level like The Maze. Here is a list of items that will greatly help in getting through:
- Worklights - These are the most important things in getting through the Lost Cave. Depending on how much light the player needs to get through and keep track of where they were, they may need more or less, especially if they have multiple people with them.
- Dynamite - At least three dynamite is necessary; one for blowing up the entrance, another for knocking down the rock on the pillar, and another for exiting the cave.
- Players - Other players can hold out worklights for others to jump on, etc. Handiness.
This cave is one of the more hidden caves in Lumber Tycoon 2. It is located at the base of the Snow Peninsula and to the left of the Taiga entrance. If the player manages to get on top of this region, presumably via Pine Wood trees, they will see a small, square rock similar to the Swamp Rock. This rock can be blown up with Dynamite to reveal the main entrance to the cave. It is recommended that the player drop their items in before entering themselves. When exiting, the player must climb up the stalagmite in the main room and, if necessary, blow up the rock again.The entrance is located underneath a small boulder that sticks out of the surrounding rock (see below). After this rock has been blown up, a small, square hole will be visible that the player is able to jump into the cave.
