I arrive at Captain's Cove Amusement Park, where I meet Harlan, Joy, Ingrid, and Elliott. I accidentally spill paint in Elliot's office, or workshop. I also meet a robot named Miles the Magnificent Memory Machine, who was in Joy's office.

Welcome to my latest case the haunted dear Ned well here I am at captain's Cove amusement park about to try to figure out what's behind all the weird things that have been happening here lately first horse just disappeared off the carousel one night then a little later the carousel started spinning around all by itself in the dead of night as if it was haunted or something and then last week the roller coaster suddenly stopped in mid ride for no apparent reason nobody was seriously hurt but the park was shut down until the city knows for sure what caused the accident I'm here because Paula Santos the park's owner is a friend of dads she's putting me up at the Captain's Quarters Hotel which is next to the park I'm supposed to head over there right now and meet with a security guard named Harlan Bishop I hope I don't let pull it down wish me luck ever yours Nancy yes there's a rumor going around that the park is cursed creepy huh.
Well the young lady who just entered the park please turn immediately and enter the whale's mouth directly to her left thank you well from the way you just march right on in here best although sorry we're closed signs you're either who I think you are or you're one determined Gatecrasher you must be Harlan Palo Santo said you'd be expecting me which means you must be Nancy Drew famous team detective substitute the word amateur for famous and yes that's me I don't know mrs. Santos seems to have a lot of faith in you apparently more than she does in some people around here she's afraid that police aren't getting this case very high priority somebody swiped the horse off a carousel and now it's malfunctioning the police don't think it's that big a deal and frankly neither do i what about the roller coaster accidents happen of course Ingrid will tell you that these so-called accidents are really the result of the parks car getting bent out of shape by negative energy or some such gobbledygook who's Ingrid Ingrid Cori you'll probably meet her she's working during the shutdown - she's the parks chief engineer leaves and all this wacky new-age psycho biogenic stuff like if you eat food served by a waiter who's in a bad mood you'll get scurvy or something where can I find her first things first you won't be meeting her or Eliot chin the parks art director until after you go see the parks bookkeeper joy Trent miss Santos disorders joy pays all the bills so she knows pretty much everything that's going on plus she'll give you an access card miss Santos wants you to have the run of the place that would certainly help wait hang on I know joy won't give you one of these so I will here you go it's a captain's Kofun card lets you ride the rides and play the games on the Midway come back to me if you burn through that one and need another why would enjoy give me one of these well see Joy's just kind of joy less it had never occurred to her that you might want to have some fun while you're here of course she's a newbie - like me maybe she'll come around anyway here's a map of the park I put an X where Joy's offices where did you work before you came here you were in a store department store you. Know as a security guard in Flemington not around here I see you have a security camera trained on the carousel does that mean you got the theft of that carousel horse on tape we didn't start monitoring the carousel until after the theft but we do have one of those so-called hauntings on tape I want to see it I'd be great I got the tape right here all cued up I played it for the police like I said before they weren't real impressed there's no sound.
On the tape at least the band organ started up when the carousel did stayed on for about 30 seconds then stopped.
Have you tried to prove your screwed-up wiring theory ain't no cap but now that you're here maybe you can prove it for me did you notice that bursts of static just before the carousel started to turn probably just a glitch in the tape we use them over and over a fee around go get him.
Hello hi Nancy its Paula Santos I was wondering when I'd hear from you have you been out to the park yes I have I forgot to tell you all the rides are shut down except for the carousel I thought you might need to see in action but please take a good look at the roller coaster even if you can't ride it first chance again great feel free to inspect the tracks all you want I'm sure you'll do a better job than the police they looked around for five minutes then left said as long as the insurance company was going to investigate why should they well I'll see what I can do miss Santos I can't wait to hear what you turn up call me as often as you like my phone's on and with me 24/7 oh and one more thing call me Paula all right goodbye Paula.
Hello are you Nancy yes I am your joy joy Trent sorry about the mess so I'm supposed to give you an access card no hurry if you're in the middle of something please go ahead and finish up that's okay I just assume get this little farce over what do you mean you're only here because it makes it look like policy and Post had nothing to do with any of this cursed garbage are you saying she did have something to do with it I've seen how Paula runs the park all she wants is to get more and more people through that gate and what better way to do that than with a carousel that's allegedly haunted but why would she sabotage the roller coaster she can't make any money with a park shut down she probably just didn't know the park would be shut down is mrs. Santos aware the way you feel about her of course not I don't want to get fired besides nobody's been hurt except that glorified con artist who claims his neck got injured Lance Huffington and the truth is Paula offered me this job because she knew I needed the money and I'm not entirely ungrateful my father died recently his estate is in bankruptcy he used to be co-owner of the park two years ago he suffered a huge financial setback and he had to sell his share to Paula when he died two months ago he was flat broke Paula could have bailed him out but she didn't frankly I think the reason she hired me was guilt right um I'm supposed to get an access card from you here you go should get you into all the private areas of the park but if you run into problems don't come to me ask the chief engineer Ingrid quarry her office is by the haunted house the only other people in the park right now are Harlan Bishop and the art director Eliot chin his studio is right by the treasure chest souvenir shop but try not to bug him does he not like to be disturbed he's behind in his work and needs to catch up miss Santos has been getting on my case about it well I think you have everything so if you'll excuse me oh right thanks for all your help sorry if i disturb you okay if I peek in.
Here go ahead and look around excuse all the clutter I'm still trying to get this place organized looks like stenography.
It's a memo about one of the carousel horses being sold I wonder which horse.
Looking for someone I'm Nancy Drew I'm trying to help mrs. Santos figure out why so many weird things have been happening around here lately do you have time to talk sure oh my you've got B three issues I do vitamin b3 niacin the vibe you're giving off tells me you're low nothing that's some natural peanut butter on a slice of whole wheat bread once a day won't fix Collin Bishop mentioned that some of your beliefs concerning food were somewhat unconventional it just seems obvious to me that what you eat as well as the psycho-spiritual conditions under which you eat it results in what you are that's all have you worked at captain's Cove for very long a little less than two years I started out in maintenance and worked my way up I've held the supervisory position for the last ten months miss Santos asked me to figure out why weird things have been happening around here lately what's to figure out someone stole a horse off the carousel and now the park is cursed why would someone steal a carousel horse money I hear they can be very valuable could I see the blueprints of the roller coaster so you can show me exactly where on the track it stopped I've looked all over for those blueprints and can't find them anywhere I'm sure one of the other engineers knows where they are but I'm afraid I don't sorry do you mind having to work during the shutdown not a bit keeping those card readers functioning is practically a full-time job all by itself plus I happen to adore my job How well do you know Harlan Bishop I know he's an ex bouncer from Trenton I also know it drives him nuts that this is one of the few places in the park he doesn't have a key for thanks for your help you bet.
Hang on I'll be right with you take your time.
And do not come back unless an until joy Trent calls me okay I'm a detective.
Named Nancy Drew and you are who.
Programmed you it is my turn to ask a question Eliot Chen is kind of upset with me I need to write her a note to call him so.
Who programmed you responding to the non joy entity is an unnecessary what does.
That mean hello miles I guess it means. He's not gonna talk to me anymore I can.
Use this to leave a note for joy to call Eliot.
Hello hi Nancy its Paula Santos you know I just had a thought there's a newspaper article and photo in Joy's office that I want you to be sure to take a look at there in a frame on the wall why were they framed they're a little piece of park history the guy in the photo found a bunch of jewels that had been stolen in a heist years ago and stashed away on one of the rides at captain's Cove the police said there was a good chance more jewels would turn up maybe that's why someone stole that carousel horse because there were jewels hidden inside it my thoughts exactly I called the detective that was in charge of the investigation back then his name is KJ Parris he's going to call you oops I got to run I just wanted to give you a heads-up all right goodbye Paula sorry.
Can't talk busy busy busy.
Would it be okay if I took some tape it might come in handy help yourself could.
I have some of these tissue strips be my guest.
Mind if I look at this oh go right ahead that book on Karis house.
Hello this is detective KJ Parris captain's called police department Paula Santos asked me to call you said of concern that high static Captain's Quarters 23 years ago well I was thinking maybe the reason that horse was stolen off the carousel at captain's Cove two weeks ago was because somebody thought there were jewels from that heist inside it never occurred to me but it's possible I suppose the thief's name was chance Dunning died in prison about a year ago I'll tell you what I'll make some calls try to see if there was somebody he confided in before he died somebody who was recently released that would be fantastic thanks detective Paris it was great talking to you hey.
Nancy what's up I'm afraid I got off on the wrong foot with Elliot I still paint all over something he'd been working on oh not good the guy's already about a month behind in his work any idea why he's so far behind he's a procrastinator doesn't really like to work so he does whatever he can to avoid it puts things off till the last minute me I get stuff done right away you do too I'll bet well I try has he always been behind I guess he was doing okay up until about a month ago way I hear it if he doesn't get caught up like fast he's gonna be waving bye-bye like soon áthey around sounds good I wonder what the deal is with this red.
