This page is for Bottomless pit (place), the location. For the episode, see Bottomless Pit!.

The bottomless pit is a deep, dark, bottomless abyss in the ground that lies near the Mystery Shack. It may be some kind of wormhole.

Dipper mentions the pit in "The Time Traveler's Pig" when he tells Robbie to jump in there.

In "Bottomless Pit!," Grunkle Stan takes Dipper, Mabel, and Soos there to dispose of their unwanted items, and the wind blows all three in when Stan's stubborn refusal to return to the refuge of the Shack. Each tells a story to pass the time as they fall, and they eventually come right back out the top by the end before Stan yet again stumbles into it. Various pits also appear as obstacles in the game "Fright Night."

The inside of the pit.

The pit's exterior is a large hole in the ground, and a sign next to it that says bottomless pit (which was later cracked by Stan). Inside, there is virtually no light, and sides are made of dirt.

At the bottom of the pit is a large, white circular bottom about the size of the top hole. This white bottom is actually a wormhole, which brings Grunkle Stan, Mabel, Dipper, and Soos back to the top of the hole to an awaiting Gompers the Goat.
