Background[edit | edit source]
Camden Park was an amusement park that advertised rides, picnics, and "fun for all" before the Great War. The park mascot was Mr. Fuzzy, whose likeness appears on various merchandise which can still be found in the park.
However, behind the customers' view of the park, intense standards were put in place for employees. Being fired or having their pay docked for frivolous reasons was a common occurrence, though at least one, Marty Porkins, dodged punishment by donating to the park. Employees were required to have extremely high morale, and smile as much as possible, or else they would need to undergo "Smile Training." Some, like Brandon Anderson, decided to rebel by placing laxatives in the food, forcing the supervisors to deal with a mountain of customer complaints.
Presently one can meet Fuzzy Brenda, an enthusiastic woman who wears a Mr. Fuzzy costume and refers to the Scorched and ghouls as customers. She encourages the player character to buy tickets and visit the park. Several robots still inhabit the park after the war, including a Responder vendor bot and The Boss, a robobrain executive tasked with handing out wages to humans it refers to as "fleshlings." There are also several unique Mr. Handy robots with individual, amusement park-themed dialogue who staff the sideshow attractions, including Zoe, Zeke, and Zach.
Layout[edit | edit source]
Approaching along State Route 81 from the north, the road passes over the waterway and then the park on its eastern side, allowing access to the parking lot to the immediate right. This parking lot area is where several of the park's attractions can be found. The Dross Toss, arcade games, and the Chunt N Bunt are along the lot's western edge, past several automobiles including a bumper car housing a Jangles the Moon Monkey.
Moving toward the park, one will see the entrance with bumper cars ride to the immediate right next to the Lucky Mucker. Before proceeding to the park itself via this entryway, the player character will encounter Fuzzy Brenda standing next to a large map of the park. Once one has moved through the entrance, they can interact and trade with Vendor bot Chad, a Responders vendor.
Progressing clockwise from the entrance, following the perimeter of the distinctive Widowmaker roller coaster, one will first happen upon Sugar Heaps, an ice cream shop, directly next to the Company Store and a ride named Radioactive Roundup. The fencing between the derelict rides and State Route 81 has fallen, allowing enemies to enter from the outside of the park. The last attraction on the far southeast side is the carousel. There are restrooms in this corner as well, with a weapons workbench situated behind them.
Inside of the center of the coaster is a raider encampment, which includes a green steamer trunk and armor workbench. The raiders have a power armor station and two cooking stations in the centralized area as well. One can choose to climb on the roller coaster tracks to find various loot along the rail, including among skeletons sitting in the cars. Heading back towards the entrance on the western side of the coaster, one will find an employee office and Chowline attraction. One can find a medical vending machine inside the employee building and a special Protectron named Camden Park security found guarding the building, who although, damaged, still performs its role. The employee office has a skeleton sitting at the desk and random loot scattered around the small structure.
Continuing clockwise, the Vault Dweller will discover the Camden Express, Strip Miner, and Coal Shaft attractions. A deceased member of the Order of Mysteries can be found on the northern bridge of the Strip Miner train track. The northwestern corner of the park is surrounding on two sides by a river and has a green space in which the attraction Minor Miner's Zone is located. Ending back at the entrance, along with the vendor bot, one can also interact with other robots in the park such as the Boss at the Company Store, Zach at Dross Toss, Zeke at the Lucky Mucker stall, and Zoe at the Chow Line hot dog eating contest.
