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 nearby the Mystery Shack. According to Dipper, it may be some kind of wormhole where time is nonexistent.


Season 1

The pit is first mentioned in "The Time Traveler's Pig," when Dipper tells Robbie to jump into it when he was looking for Wendy.

In "Bottomless Pit!," Grunkle Stan takes Dipper, Mabel, and Soos there to dispose of their unwanted items, but a strong wind blows all three of them into it when Stan stubbornly refuses to return to the refuge of the Mystery Shack. Each of them tells a story to pass the time as they fall, and they eventually come right back out the top before Stan falls into it yet again.

In "Dreamscaperers," Mabel shoots the combination to Stan's safe out of Bill Cipher's hands with a nyarf gun into one of Stan's memories, and down into the bottomless pit to prevent Gideon from getting into the safe and stealing the deed to the Mystery Shack.


Later, in "TV Shorts 1," the pit is mentioned in the Mystery Shack's disclaimer.

Season 2

In "Into the Bunker," Wendy mentions the bottomless pit to Dipper, saying she'd throw herself into it if he ever stopped being her friend.

The inside of the pit.

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

In Dipper's and Mabel's Guide to Mystery and Nonstop Fun!, Soos makes a diagram of the bottomless pit. It's actually just a black page with writing on it. It reads "Diagram of the Bottomless Pit by Soos." "Top of the pit. My advice: stay at the top and don't fall in." "Middle of the pit. Somewhere between two and infinity miles deep." "Bottom of the pit. When you get to the bottom, you get spit back out at the top. There's some weird fourth-dimensional stuff going on in this pit, dude."[1]
