Straight to the Meta

The Mystery Hunt may be over, but my team is still rolling along: Foggy Brume, because he doesn’t come up with enough puzzles already as editor of P&A Magazine, has been entertaining us with practice metapuzzles that he’s designed. Inspired, I’ve come up with one of my own. Only a couple of my teammates have solved it, so I guess that means it’s hard. Let’s see how you guys do with it.

Imagine if you will a puzzle hunt (or perhaps a Mystery Hunt round) called “The Haunted Carnival.” Each puzzle is based on a different ride. You’ve solved every puzzle in the round. Now it’s time to tie everything together and come up with the meta-answer.

Puzzle Name Answer
Night Rider MEET JOE BLACK
Mountaintop Coaster JEREMIAH JOHNSON
The Final Frontier SOLAR CRISIS
Tandem Jump ROMEO AND JULIET
Kiddie Rides ROSEMARY’S BABY
Rocket! APOLLO 13
The Agitator 12 ANGRY MEN
Merry-Go-Round THE CORE
Endurance Test 28 DAYS
Say Your Prayers MONSIGNOR

Update: By the way — no spoilers in comments for now, okay? E-mail me the answer if you like.

Solved so far by: Kevin Wald, Joon Pahk, Todd McClary, Michael Sylvia, Marc Spraragen, Mark Halpin

    In this hypothetical puzzle, are the puzzles ordered in the order given, or are they presented in a way that doesn’t indicate any particular order?

    They are in this order for a reason.
