The Second Gate is the second of three gates which must be cleared to win Halliday's Easter Egg Hunt. Once inside, the player must complete a digital recreation of the video game Black Tiger, taking the place of the game's protagonist. Completing the game yields the player both a voice-activated robot and the riddle for the Crystal Key.
Ready Player One
An OASIS avatar can only enter the Second Gate if they have acquired a copy of the Jade Key and, inherently, a copy of the Copper Key. They must find a Voight-Kampff machine (located in any recreation of the Tyrell Building), insert the Jade Key into a keyhole located on the machine, and enter the portal that appears.
The Second Gate is located on many different planets; the Second Gate can be accessed through any Voight-Kampff. The Tyrell Building, the place in which the machine is located, is a free building template offered as a part of the OASIS WorldBuilder software. Thus, any world that contains the Tyrell Building will be home to the Second Gate.

In the film, the Second Gate appears in a nearby wall after Art3mis asks Karen Underwood to dance in the Halliday-designed remake of The Shining and wins the second challenge. A set of stepping stones form leading to the gate where Art3mis inserts the Jade Key, causing a hole to open where the keyhole is and the clue to the third challenge to emerge.
