How to get Mattison on the Rail Car Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, Obscure Hagie’s Line of Sight

For her next activity, Mattison will want to visit her dad at the job site. For that, she will need to use the railcar. However, Hagie wants her to pay for that. Therefore, she will try to hop aboard the railcar without him noticing. She will subtly ask Link to “maybe cover his eyes”. So, how to obscure Hagie’s line of sight in Zelda TOTK? This one is a little tricky. We’ve managed to do it with a nearby wooden platform. However, the better and intended way is to open the Stuck Storehouse Door and use Hudson Cutouts stored inside.

What you need to do is to position Hudson Cutouts with your Ultrahand somewhere between Hagie and the railcar in a way that they are blocking his view of the railcar. It will require some trial and error, but when you find the right angle, Hagie will say, “It’s blocking my view”. That’s when you leave the barrier and head back to talk with Mattison. Tell her that she can go now!

Where to Find Sundelions Mattison’s Independence Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

Finally, President Hudson wants to dye Mattison’s balloon yellow to resemble the Sun. For that, he will need 10 Sundelions. It’s a rather straightforward task if you know where to look. The Sundelion flower grows only near Zonai ruins. Hence, your best bet is to activate the nearby Ulri Mountain Skyview Tower, propel yourself into the sky, and land on a nearby sky island. When you have 10 of them, head back to President Hudson and Mattison. And with that, the “Mattison’s Independence” quest is completed! Do not refuse their offer for a ride with the new balloon!
