Scooby and the gang were en route to visit Shaggy's uncle when they got sidetracked. It seems that a Fun Park Phantom has frightened customers away from an amusement park. The owners of the fun park need help, and fast!
Solving this mystery requires problem-solving skills as well as quick reflexes. In single player mode, after watching the opening original Scooby Doo intro, kids pick their character -- they can "be" either Shaggy, Daphne, Freddy, or Velma. (Scooby Doo is everyone's helper). The other 3 characters will be opponents and kids will take turns playing against them. First they will choose the level of intelligence of their opponents, then a difficulty level must be chosen (easy, medium, or hard), and whether or not "turn time" is limited.
Pieces of evidence and clues are scattered around the amusement park, and players must try to collect them, as well as interview the 6 suspects. Collecting Scooby Snacks will enlist the help of Scooby Doo. At various points in the game, the phantom chases players, which launches a Phantom Chase game.
There are 9 areas of the park, including Ferris Wheel, Pirate Ship, Miniature World, Bumper Cars, and more. Players need to use traps to attempt to capture the villain, and they must collect items throughout the park to use in the trap.
Multiplayer options include up to 4 players on a single machine and LAN or MSN Gaming Zone.
