As Nancy has been asked to investigate a stolen carousel horse in an amusement park, you take on the task of helping her once again solve a crime.  It turns out that someone has stolen a particular horse from the carousel, not necessarily one that would be extremely valuable, but what might be inside of the horse?  As Nancy Drew investigates, she discovers that there is more to just what appears on the surface of each of the Amusement Park personnel!  Paula Santos, the owner of the amusement park, is a dear friend of Nancy's father.  She's asked Nancy to investigate not only the stolen carousel horse, but an accident on the roller coaster.  You are about to dive into yet another Nancy Drew mystery!

Push the button in the middle.  Take the 3rd roll.  Open the cabinet behind the carriage of the carousel. Put the roll #3 on the wooden dowel. The dowel breaks (not the bowel!).


Ask Elliott if you can use his equipment. Turn towards the right (from where he was sitting) and look inside the box on the table. Now put the broken dowel next to the ruler on the table. Look at the measurements.

Remember those measurements and the design on the handles of the dowel.  Turn around and head for the huge machine in the middle of the rear of the room.

Play the game and win the tokens.  Purchase the Harmonica in the Play-O-Matic machine.


Play the 8 tunes for Miles (A, E, D, E, F, E, A, E). Look at the bill of sale in your inventory (from the file cabinet). At this point in the game, you can call Bess and she'll send you a book with stenography in it so you can figure out the word that's missing on the bill of sale, or if you know stenography, then type in GLORY. Tell Joy you know the name of the horse, Glory.

Get the 3rd Riddle from Miles:  Exit, Call Tink - ask about the book from Darryl Trent. (Nightshade).

CAROUSEL:  Ride the ride with your fun card. Get the brass ring.

Go behind the Carousel, and use the party favor from the Midway Games to get the letter down. Read the letter.

INGRID'S OFFICE: Ask about Spooky, the dummy in the Haunted House. Take the arm, & pliers, ask everything else.

HAUNTED HOUSE: Put the arm on the dummy.  Use pliers 4x's to tighten the arm in place. Take red tag. Go to the Radiator and look on the wall behind it. Open the door. Use the Remote Control Device (from underneath the carousel). You'll need a key.

Go to Harlen (he won't talk to you).

Go to Joys. Outside Joy's office you'll get a call from Harlen. Go see him.

Take the key from the note. Ask Harlen to turn on the power to the dummy in the Haunted House.  Call Paula and leave her a short message.  Go to Elliott's Office.


Inside Elliott's office move towards the dowel machine.  Look at the magazine on the drill press.  Notice the post-it inside the magazine.  Make a note of the name: Sukov, and the phone number (1-303-555-3138).  Back up from the magazine and look on the floor to the left of where the magazine was.  Pick up and take the sales receipt for lumber.  Nancy will make a comment about all the lumber Elliott has purchased.

Outside Elliott's Office, call Sukov.  Ask him about the NICKNAME for Amelia.  He tells you it's SPATZI.  Write that down.  


Return to the Radiator. Use the Remote Control Device on the hidden panel. Use the key to open the lock. Once down inside the room, someone will drop a heavy object on you. Immediately step back, when you can.  Go back up the steps and click on the belly of Spooky Ten.  Enter the letters S-P-A-T-Z-I and place the brass ring on the arm.  A trap door opens.  Look left and go down the stairs. After you've fallen, pick up the jewels and the note addressed to Joy.  Put those items in your inventory.  Look right and enter the doors.  Look at the NIGHTSHADE horse and the forgery being made. Look at the e-mail correspondence sitting on the desk to the right of the computer.  Exit the door.  Meet Elliott there.  During your conversation, you'll have two choices.  Select: "That's right!  You want 'em? Here!"

When you regain control of your movements, go through the door and up the stairs.  Elliott will come for you.  Turn to Spooky Ten and remove the brass ring!  Elliott will fall down the trap door.
