SCP-823, also known as the "Carnival of Horrors", is an Euclid-class location under the containment of SCP Foundation. SCP-823 is an abandoned theme (amusement) park. Site was abandoned after several violent events resulting in the deaths of park attendees.
SCP-823 was finally abandoned after the events known as "Bloody Sunday," when the influence of the artifact in question reached a 20-year peak. Two hundred thirty-one attendees were killed, and another seven injured or maimed.
Special Containment Procedures
SCP-823 is to be secured by no fewer than six on-site personnel until such time as decontamination protocols can be established and the artifact in question neutralized. Personnel must respect a twenty-meter safe zone around the currently established Red (No Entry) Zone at all costs. Any individual, civilian or not, who enters the established Red Zone is to be terminated immediately by sniper fire.
Should music or piping be heard emanating from within the Red Zone, Foundation personnel on-site are to immediately don protective earplugs and withdraw from their positions to a 2 km perimeter, beyond the currently established Yellow (No Civilian Presence) Zone, and inform Foundation scientific personnel immediately. Following the realignment event, Foundation science personnel will survey the area and determine the boundaries of the new Red and Yellow zones using Procedure 823-1-Alpha.
Due to the necessity of maintaining auditory alertness, no personal music devices or radios aside from necessary equipment are to be allowed at the observation site.
Notable deaths and injuries it caused
- Two individuals, male and female, fused together at multiple points after emerging from the "Tunnel of Love" dark ride. (dead)
- One individual wearing a "Happy Hippo" mascot uniform, found dead of suffocation. Mouth, trachea, and lungs were discovered to be filled with a fibrous substance later determined to be identical to the stuffing in said mascot uniform. (dead)
- Fifteen individuals recovered from the "Thriller Chiller" roller coaster, all decapitated by blunt force. Witnesses reported that the deaths did not occur simultaneously, but in groups of two, starting with the front row of seats and ending with the back. Forensic analysis indicates that each set of deaths corresponded to a loop or turn in the roller coaster's tracks. (dead)
- One individual recovered from under the "Thriller Chiller" roller coaster, dead of broken neck and massive cranial trauma caused by a fifty-foot fall from an inverted position. Individual was seated at the back of said roller coaster, and somehow managed to extricate self from the ride's safety harness halfway through the ride. (dead)
- One individual found dismembered inside the "House of Mirrors" attraction. Left arm was found sixteen feet to the north from the torso. Left leg was found inverted and attached to the ceiling by sinews. Right leg was found in the possession of Subject 79, partially consumed (forensic analysis indicates that teeth marks found on flesh and bone of said leg are human in origin). To date, no trace of right arm has been found. (alive)
