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.
