The Control room is an area of the Aqua Ring.


The Control Room has been remodeled in the remake where a ladder was added leading down to the Control Room system in which the original Resident Evil did not feature. A warning lamp can be seen on the wall which should glow either Green or Red in case of an emergency. The main control system for the Aqua Ring that included the safety system and pressure valves is found inside the Control Room.


In the original Resident Evil, the water can be drained immediately by switching the button. Once all is done, the Aqua Ring can now be explore safely.

In Remake, player can head straight down the ladder and go to the drained water system. Before player can reach the switch, a Neptune swimming around will ram itself to the protective glasses. Player must trigger the system around the control room, the pressure valve and the control level to close down the shutter that will prevent the Neptune from crashing inside the control room. Once all is done, the water can be drained. A First Aid Spray and the map for the Aqua Ring can be obtained here.
