Flood is one of the random events in Baldi's Basics Plus.



Currently, the event only occurs on floor 2. The cause of the halls and rooms flooding seems to be a leak, based on the event's quote description, which causes the Super Schoolhouse to get flooded.

The whole school is flooded, causing all of the characters to move slower. During this event, all standard doors will stay open, which makes it easier for the player to enter the classrooms, faculty rooms, Principal's office, or Gotta Sweep's closet without directly opening the doors to draw Baldi's attention, escaping detention without using the Principal's Keys, and getting out of a classroom when Chalkles becomes solid.

Whirlpools will spawn in any location except for the mystery room. Unless the Big Ol' Boots are used, the player will be pulled forcefully into the center of the whirlpool, if coming close to it. When they get sucked into the center of the whirlpool, they will get teleported to a random location, similar to Arts and Crafters. The whirlpool will disappear after teleporting.

Other characters except for It's a Bully and Chalkles can also get sucked in and teleported by the whirlpools as well.

Other Appearances

  • In Baldi's Basics Full Game Early Demo and Baldi's Basics Kickstarter Exclusive Demo, the water texture seems more stretched out. The whirlpools suck items as a temporary function in order to get the full game early demo released on time.[1] If any character including the player gets dragged around by a whirlpool for several seconds, it will disappear. This function was also applied to Baldi's Basics Plus, but prior to V0.1.4.


Baldi's Basics Plus
  • The current function of the whirlpools was first mentioned in a Twitter post about the V0.1.4 update.[3]
  • In the current version, the whirlpool's gurgling sound is unused.
  • If the flood event is over while sucked in a whirlpool, it will cancel the teleport.
  • In the first release of the early demo when the flood event was introduced, the player's and characters' speed was halved. In the update V1.1, their speed was raised to three-quarters.
  • The sound of the whirlpool has an echo effect.


Baldi's Basics Plus
  • When the flood first happens, the sound effect fades in; but for a split second it starts out at max volume before fading in.
  • During this event, some items cannot be grabbed in specific angles.
  • Prior to V0.1.4 update, in a rare occasion, an item was stolen from the inventory even if the player was not near the whirlpool.[4]
  • If the player teleported from the library, while sinking it is possible to hear sounds.
  • Prior to V0.2.2, if any character was sucked by a whirlpool, they would be flipped upside-down when exiting the whirlpool.
    • Unlike the Gravity Chaos event, upside-down characters made by this glitch could interact with the player.
  • There was a rare bug that caused the game to crash when touching the whirlpool.

  1. "the whirlpools will probably not do that in the full game. I've had a different idea in mind for whirlpools, but it would have taken me too long to implement in time for the demo so I did the item stealing as a temporary thing." - mystman12. September 19, 2019. Kickstarter comments section
