The Haunted Carousel is the eighth game in the Nancy Drew adventure series. The use of the task list began in this game, but unlike the rest, Nancy can still use it if she is a Senior Detective (until Tomb of the Lost Queen). It is based on Nancy Drew Digest #72, The Haunted Carousel.


At Captain's Cove Amusement Park in New Jersey, odd things are happening. A horse was stolen off its antique carousel, and the carousel now starts up mysteriously in the middle of the night; plus, the park's roller coaster stopped in mid-ride for no reason. The park's owner, Paula Santos, is a friend of Nancy's father, and calls her in to investigate. With the park closed, Nancy has the run of the place to solve the mystery.


Harlan BishopEdit

Harlan is the park's security guard. He's very dedicated to his job, even agreeing to a pay cut so that he could stay on duty while the park was closed.

Ingrid CoreyEdit

Ingrid is the chief engineer. She can apparently read people's "auras" and has somewhat New Age-esque beliefs. Also, she believes the park is cursed due to the horse being stolen.

Elliot ChenEdit

Elliot is the park's art director. Everyone knows him as a huge procrastinator who's always behind in his work. He may even be fired if he doesn't catch up.

Joy TrentEdit

Joy is the park's bookkeeper. While a hard worker, she doesn't seem to have much life outside her job.

Phone FriendsEdit

Nancy uses a cell phone that is located in her inventory.

Bess Marvin and George FayneEdit

Bess and George are cousins and are good friends of Nancy. They can give her advice.

Frank and Joe HardyEdit

Frank and Joe are detective brothers that Nancy knows. They can give her advice.

Paula SantosEdit

Paula is the owner of the park who wants Nancy to find out what's been going on.

K.J. PerrisEdit

A police detective who gives Nancy important information on the case, and how it relates to a past case that was never totally solved.

Tink Obermeier Edit

Tink is the man who operates the carousel and knows the inner workings of the band organ. During the game, he is on a fishing trip to Canada.
