Description

The 8th in the HerInteractive game series based on the Nancy Drew books finds Nancy in Jersey investigating strange happenings in the Captain's Cove Amusement Park. Not only did a serious accident occur when the rollercoaster mysteriously lost power, but in the middle of the night the beautiful antique carousel has hauntingly begun to start by itself!

You, as Nancy Drew, will go behind the scenes into the workings of theme park rides, talk to people (all of whom have secrets to hide), and solve the puzzles while digging into the carousel's past and unveiling the culprit behind the sabotage. Like other games in the series, the game uses a point and click interface, an inventory and several difficulty choices.
