    1. SPOILER-FREE WALKTHROUGH
    
    
    
    [Lakeside Amusement Park Dream]
    Keep advancing on the pretty much straight forward path. Once you reach the
    end of the roller coaster rails you'll clear the area.
    You'll also clear the area if Heather dies. So if you just want to skip the
    wandering around, let Heather be killed by a monster or fall into a pit.
    (In Action Level Easy, Heather can't fall into pits, so just let monsters
    kill her.)
    There's a shop along the way with nothing in it.
    Similar to the beginning of Silent Hill 1, you will only experience this
    area on your very first playthrough of the game.

    [Silent Hill 2 Poster]
    
    In the Shopping Center, after exiting the boutique, down the hall between 2
    locked doors is a poster of Silent Hill 2 on the wall. You can't examine it,
    but you can zoom into it for a closer look.
    It's a poster of Angela with the words "Silent Hill 2" written on it, which
    was used in real life game stores during the release of Silent Hill 2 the
    game.
