The Midnight Kingdom popped up seemingly out of nowhere near the start of the current era. It started as a small carnival and over time, grew into a large theme park. It became a popular destination among folks of all ages. Ownership changed hands several times before staying in the grasp of a peculiar deep gnome named Zuggi Jewelseeker. He wears a pink pinstriped suit while all the other staff wear extravagant purple costumes with masks. Neon lights line the walkways and adorn some of the rides and game stalls. They imitate the natural bioluminescence found within the cavernous Underdark.
Bumper Snails:Children and adults both love this classic ride. The set up is the same as bumper cars, but the buggies are designed to look like cave snails. They come in green, purple, and blue with matching colored light emitting from the eyestalks.
The Fun Wheel:A large Ferris wheel with mushroom shaped seating. They alternate in color from red to purple. Each mushroom has white spots on the cap area. The middle portion of the wheel is plastered with a large image of Zuggi's smiling face.
Fisher's Drop:Experience all the fun and thrill of being a cave fisher's next victim without the real danger. Atop a fake cliff sit three statues of the creatures. Attached to each is a strong, imitation "thread" acting as a bungee cord. Staff will wrap you up in a bundle around the torso at the end of the thread and let you bounce and dangle for several minutes after dropping over the edge.
Spider Chase:A coaster ride that zooms visitors through a majority of the park grounds. Cars are large spiders that fit two people each in groups of four. The spiders are a bright white with electric blue spotting. Multiple sets run the track at a time, spaced out by a few minutes. The track consists of steep hills, a few corkscrews, dark tunnels, and two loops.
Scary-Go-Round:A standard attraction found in most parks and carnivals. Visitors will not find beautiful horses and carriages here, however. In their place are rideable spiders, scorpions, and centipedes. Mushroom seats are available as well. It is two floors and located in another building. During the ride the main lights are turned off. All the creatures and mushrooms glow different shades of blue and green. The walls of the room are covered in glowing eye shapes and other designs.
Cave Maze:Narrow tunnels are carved into a rock wall forming a manmade cave network. Guests are let in a few at a time, spaced out to prevent back ups or path clogging. The only light comes from the bioluminescent mushrooms and other plants the park staff grew on the walls and path. Visitors are allowed to take a small glow orb if they wish to provide only a little more light. The maze leads to an open area with a box of small, assorted colored rocks and gems; guests allowed to take one before leaving through the nearby exit.
