Pressure Pads are large buttons on the floors that activates doors, elevators, walls, switches, or other objects into opening, closing, stopping, or moving. They are activated when weight is applied. The Clockwork Bomb can be used to apply pressure on the pad, but it will only last for a short period of time.
Pressure Pads are used to open up switches that can be fully activated using the Pepper Grinder. Sometimes, particularly during the Deluded Depths area and once during Cardbridge, some pressure pads do not require a Clockwork Bomb. Alice can simply navigate from pad to pad without it and it will already set a time limit to quickly figure out the path it sets off.
The Teleportation Pad is only available in the area where Alice fights the Queen of Hearts in her final form. It is the gray square near the ledge where the Blunderbuss can be found and it can only teleport Alice once after the weapon has been retrieved.
- The Pressure Plate was used once in Majestic Maze in American McGee's Alice, while it was constantly used in Alice: Madness Returns.
- It is important to note that the strategy guide has been known to contain several mistakes with regard to the names, since the author was not part of the production team. Hence, the term "Pressure Plate" is a non-fully canon terminology.
