Disney Cruise Line today debuted this video which goes behind-the-scenes at the making of the Midship Detective Agency interactive game on the Disney Fantasy. In the game, which takes advantage of the Enchanted Art displays — much like its counterpart already in place aboard sister ship Disney Dream — Pepe the King Prawn offers to take on detective duties to help Kermit and the rest of the Muppets find the missing props for their big performance. Kermit, worried about Pepe’s lack of detective skills, turns to the guests for help.
The adventure begins with Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, Animal and a cast of more than 20 Muppets preparing to stage a big performance. But there’s a problem: Kermit’s banjo is missing, Fozzie’s squirting flower has vanished, Gonzo’s crash helmet has gone astray, Animal’s drum sticks have disappeared and the Swedish Chef can’t find his cleaver! All of the props for the big show have been stolen by a cunning thief (or more likely, another Muppet). As Walt Disney Imagineering Interactive Producer Estefania Pickens explains in the video, Kermit comes to the Midship Detective Agency to find Mickey Mouse to help find the stolen props. Instead, Kermit learns that Mickey has taken a lunch break and Pepe has taken over the office in Mickey’s absence.
Guided by a map and holding a unique game card in front of select pieces of Enchanted Art, guests unveil clues and find missing props. Elsewhere on the ship, guests may check a Muppets message board and find a Muppet-sized stateroom door to discover clues. Their mission is to identify the culprit and solve the crime before it’s time to raise the curtain and light the lights on the Muppets’ big show.
‘The Case of the Stolen Show’ is a self-paced adventure game designed for guests ages nine and older. It features several possible endings and multiple randomized events – so each time a guest plays, they have a different gaming experience.
