Tack A Spin With Danger!

The merry-go-round at Captain’s Cove seems to have a mind of its own. Late at night, when the park is deserted, it takes off on a bizarre riderless journey. Will you be able to unravel the mysterious happenings surrounding this beautiful antique carousel?

You, as Nancy Drew, are invited to the Jersey shore to investigate a series of mishaps at the Captain’s Cove Amusement Park. First, the lead horse was stolen from the carousel. Then the roller coaster suddenly lost power, resulting in a serious accident. Now the merry-go-round is mysteriously starting up in the middle of the night.

The amusement park is closed while the insurance company looks into the roller coaster accident. Nancy begins her own investigation by interviewing park employees, including office manager Joy Trent; chief engineer Ingrid Corey; security officer Harlan Bishop, and Elliot Chen, the park’s art director. An amusement park is a big place inside and out -- investigate everything... Can you monitor the park as closely as all this surveillance equipment? As her search unfolds, Nancy learns about the lonely craftsman who carved the carousel horses, and about the sad history of the park’s former owner, Daryl Trent. Before he died he hid puzzles and riddles throughout the park to reunite his daughter Joy with her past. Only after solving a series of challenging puzzles and avoiding several deadly traps, does Nancy discover the truth behind the haunted carousel.

Reviews:

Just Adventure by Ray Ivey

"I’ll go further in saying that this is the tightest game so far in the series, and it benefits from refinements made to an already solid formula.

"One very much appeciated such refinement is that the menu screens have at last been streamlined! I’ve been complaining about this since the series started, and I’m happy to report that it takes significantly less clicking to load and save games."

"The characters in the game also have very solid and compelling backstories and personal agendas. It’s some of the best writing and character development the series has seen as well."
