As soon as players start getting acquainted with Season of the Haunted, they'll quickly find out that the Leviathan, which once played host to Destiny 2's first raid, can be accessed as a free roam area.
Unlike other patrol zones, there's no actual map that can guide Guardians through every nook and cranny. With the game requiring you to visit both the Pleasure Gardens and Royal Pools, some are puzzled as to where these places are within the Leviathan.
Finding them will let you use Opulent Keys on chests granted from the Nightmare Containment activity, which rewards players with returning Menagerie weapons. So how do you exactly get to both the Pleasure Gardens and Royal Pools?
Pleasure Gardens location in Destiny 2
Despite what you might think, it's actually surprisingly easy to find both spots. First off, land on the Leviathan by using the Castellum option, which prioritizes free roaming over completing the Nightmare Containment activity.

As soon as you spawn, head towards the middle of the courtyard and circle around the Calus statue until you find a big gate on the other side of it. Take a look at the image down below for reference.
Now that you spotted the entrance, simply walk through its narrow corridor and you'll eventually find yourself in the Pleasure Gardens!
Royal Pools location in Destiny 2
Now that you've made your way to the Pleasure Gardens, it's time to find the Royal Pools.
From the point you entered, head straight to the left until you find an open gate, you can't miss it as it's the only one open in the entire section.
Once more, the narrow pathway will lead you to the Royal Pools. Both rooms are familiar locales for Destiny 2 veterans, as two Leviathan raid encounters took place within their walls.
Now that you know how to reach both the Pleasure Gardens and Royal Pools, the grind for Menagerie weapons is on. Of course, you'll need to find Opulent Keys by completing the Nightmare Containment activity, so best of luck, Guardian!
