Chapter 1, The Ticket Office:

You can also watch my video for Chapter 1 here:

1. Follow the tutorial. Pick up the grabbing tool and use it to knock down the bottle. Grab the free stars.

2. Head left to the WC (wash closet or bathroom).


3. Jack, another detective, will ask Maya to go into the bathroom to look for his sister. First, look at the poster on the wall of Madame Zoastra. Notice the numbers 538. We’ll use that soon. But first, try enter the bathroom. It’s locked with a magical spell! We’ll come back to it later.



4. Go back to the entrance of the carnival and use the numbers 538 to unlock the ticket booth door. Go inside.



5. Take the batteries from the desk and get the shears from the drawer. There’s also a box of gems that we’ll have to come back to later.


6. Leave and use the shears to cut the bush out front into a cat. Pick up the battery.


7. Go back to the bathroom. Add the batteries to the remote taped to the wall so you can use it. Then go back to the ticket booth and use the remote to unlock the chest of toys.



8. Go through the toys and find the three gems. Place them in the box with the others. Now you need to swap the gems around so they all match their background color. You can only swap gems with other gems that are on the same circle. Some runes will appear on the gems when you’re done.



9. Go back to the bathroom door. Match the runes to the ones on the gems. Enter the bathroom.


10. Some creepy dude will disappear with Jack’s sister. But Jack gives you his ticket so you can enter the carnival. Put it through the slot and got through the food to complete the chapter.



And that’s the end of Chapter 1! Click here to continue to Chapter 2 or choose a chapter below.

    Hi, is this walkthrough finished? I’m stuck on the part where you slice through the vine and a sudoku type puzzle is revealed.

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Not yet. I’m still working on it. Should be done tomorrow by the latest.

      1. paramita

        how about the sudoku? its not working ..

  2. Rei

    Hi! I can’t find the tongs to pick up the charcoal. I clicked EVERYWHERE and I even restarted this part but it’s nowhere to be found. Where did you find it?

    1. Brandy

      Look over the bucket in the trailer.

    2. Vic

      Inside the trailer coach. On top of the bucket above the wood burning stove.

  3. Lololol

    How can I get the ‘guess the colors’ right pleaaase?

  4. mertha gayu

    I’m stuck with the’ guess the colour’.
    Help meeee!?

    1. Gaurav

      There is no particular solution. Best i did was close n reopen the game until i got combination in 3 colors. As in 2 of each and 1 of other color. That makes it easy to guess.

      First put all same colors in the box and see which color comes twice. When 2 colors come twice you would be able to crack the puzzle easily in few guesses.

      I got 2 red 2 green and 1 yellow in mine.

      Until then close the game and open again. Keep trying.

    2. Yuna

      You click on one of the colours and you fill all the box with one colour…if the number said 2 that means there are 2 places in the 5 box that the colour will be in it..just continue and try to broke the case..Γò¼├┤Γö£ΓöÉ╬ô├▓├ª

    3. Kamilla

      First trianguate which colors you need by entering one color 5 times. After successfully identifying them, try to find which color where goes. Start by entering an identified color, followed by a not needed color 4 times. If it says 0, it’s not the first, if it says 1, it is. Then repeat the process until you solved it. Congratulations!

  5. mita

    I cany find the key mold, theres nothing in table

    1. AppUnwrapper

      You need to solve the rolling ball puzzle to access it.

      1. Robin Drake

        If I remember correctly…inside the caravan, solve the rolling ball puzzle in the lower left corner. The mold is inside the box.

  6. Sarah

    I’m on level 5 and the Allen key will not open the control panel!? It’s frustrating as had this problem with the mannequins for ages!

  7. Ads

    I have complete the puzzle for the saw and it opened but I can’t click on it.

  8. Sophie

    The door won’t open after i put in the symbols from the gravestones? Does anyone else have the problem?

    1. Reanne

      Yes! IΓÇÖm having that issue as well! Please advise.

    2. Alilia

      IΓÇÖm having the same problem!

      1. Marsilla


      2. Bonnie

        Same here. The two just donΓÇÖt match up. I even paid for hints that didnΓÇÖt help since it seems to be a glitch in the game.

        1. Amanda

          Do u know the 5 colors for the balloon puzzle

    3. Evelyn

      Me too! I broke and ended up skipping that part.

      1. Brenda Medianca

        Do you find the soluce? I have the same problem !

        1. Ara

          The candles tell you the order! If itΓÇÖs not that then idk, sorry (we are talking about the last chapter, right?)

  9. Robin Drake

    You saved me on the caravan/tapestry puzzle. I thought the clue on the couch was a “P”. Ugh!

  10. Julie

    I’ve done the mannigins right but its not doing anything I’ve rebooted loads of times but still nothing

    1. Helpusall

  11. Rieriezca

    1. Smol potato

  12. Tafia

    I did the slab comination and then it didnt open what am i suppose to do

  13. Hattie

    I need help! The sliding puzzle is impossible for me. I’m so frustrated. : (

    1. AppUnwrapper

      I’ll try to make a video for chapter 7 ASAP, which should help you out.

    2. AppUnwrapper

      Actually, I could make a video just for that puzzle a little later today.

  14. Leila Gomes


  15. Troy Anglin

    I’ve tried reboot the mannequins several times and can’t get them to move. Hard to get past it and move on

    1. Evelyn

      I figured it out! You need to press on the little ball joints.

  16. Anna

    The Soduku puzzle is just not working!!

  17. Debbi

  19. Chip

  20. Betty Wilhelm

    How do I get enough magic on level 4 to transform the boot into the magic lamp ?

  21. Liz

    I canΓÇÖt change green rooms always the tea one, can somebody help me?

  22. Haven

    My puzzle is scrambled differently than that. How do I solve it?

  23. CatReader

    On 10/20/18 I sent email to Haiku Games describing the problem with the mannequins puzzle. It is still hapoening, at least on the Android version, and after the game was updated on that platform. My thanks to you, Appunwrapper, for describing it, so I didn’t become too frustrated (just miffed). My workaround was to buy my way out.

  24. Aisy

    For me actually I started being angry with the guess the color and just tap tap tap╬ô├½├¡Γò₧├åΓö£ΓöÉΓö£ΓîÉand then suddenly the green monkey tile appear and I be like :”WHAT?” and then I just like”Thank God I finally found it.”╬ô├½├¡Γò₧├åΓö£ΓöÉΓö£ΓîÉ

    1. Hunna

      I’m so stressed like I don’t know how to crack guess the color. It gives me high blood pressure ╬ô├½├¡Γò₧├åΓö£ΓöÉΓö¼├¡╬ô├½├¡Γò₧├åΓö£ΓöÉΓö¼├¡╬ô├½├¡Γò₧├åΓö£ΓöÉΓö¼├¡

  25. Jase Jase

    Thank you

  26. Jase Jase

    Thank you.

  27. Annie

    I need help solving the clown balloon thing I’ve tried everything

  28. Debra McKee


  29. Shelley

    I donΓÇÖt understand how you solved the symbol puzzle in chapter 7. Where did you get the 9 and 8 and 7 and 5 from?

    1. Annie

      This took me awhile to get, too. Based on the info we DO know with the clues we were given, we know the symbols for 1, 2, 4, and 6. We also know that the symbols have to be single digit numbers, so the only viable option left that would equal 1 was 9 and 8. It could have been 8 and 7, but then the next equation that needed 2 numbers to equal to 2 wouldnΓÇÖt have worked. I hope that made a little bit of sense? ItΓÇÖs kind of confusing. I spent entirely too long on that particular puzzle.

  30. Mistery_rex

    How do you know ali the symbols of the animals ?, I don’t understand.

  31. Jess

    I’m a tad confused with the symbols and numbers. Is there any relation to the different V shapes? I feel like you could minus any number from any other number to get the result you want

  32. DrWho

    The mannequins almost made me give up, but I finally realized that you have to tap ***exactly*** on the joint, i.e., the point where the elbow pivots, etc. If you have a small screen, you might not be able to be precise enough!

  33. Via

    The first wooden model (aqua) does not work – I have it in the right position, yet the game seems not to have recognised this – any advice?

  34. Jo

    A little late discovering this game but IΓÇÖm addicted. IΓÇÖm stuck on the boot. Apparently I missed some magic somewhere. Is there a way to continue?
