The Dark Carnival
136 Atlantic City Blvd., Bayville, NJ 08721
Since Antiquity, visually unusual beings had been exhibited in public spaces. In the 16th century, street performances involving these beings were organized for the enjoyment of the public.
Later Freak shows featuring a number of ‘monsters’ contributed to the success of travelling shows. For more than a hundred years, the sideshow was to become an indispensable part of American circus culture. Classic attractions of the past included the giant, the fat lady, the midget, the three-legged boy, the armless wonder and the thin man.
105 Sideshows used to exist in the United States alone, but today the business of sideshows has all but disappeared due to public scorn. Until today…..
The Dark Carnival brings you New Jersey’s First Traveling Side Show.
Be amazed as you meet the Morbus, the Aquatic Fish Boy. Taken straight from the Atlantic waters off Morocco, Morbus is an exotic, land dwelling fish that one must see to believe.
Step back as you witness the spectacle of Algano, the Amphibious Lizard Man. Complete with scales and a slimy coat, Algano is sure to challenge your minds boundaries between the possible and impossible.
Finally, our greatest attraction… Mongo the Human Mutant. Grotesquely deformed, one might debate if Mongo is human at all. Completely devoid of all ability to learn and function in the human world, Mongo has known nothing but sideshow life since his birth. Be careful as you approach him however he can be as dangerous as he is unusual.
So come one, come all to the Dark Carnival !!! If you have unquenchable curiosity for the outlandish, thirst for the unknown, and both an attraction and repulsion for the diseased and deformed, we have put together the show for you. Visit our Sideshow of Oddities and we assure you that your mind, your curiosity, and all the beliefs you have ever held true will be questioned forever.

Sinister Sneed’s Chaotic Carbival of Chaos
Jacob Sneed’s first foray into the realm of bargaining with the Devil seemed fruitless—yet as his traveling carnival teetered on the brink of bankruptcy, Sneed faced little choice other than to beg the Prince of Darkness to save his doomed festival-on-wheels. But what possible use could the Devil have for pathetic Sneed or his carnival?
Blackened The Plague
The apocalypse brought with it a time known as “the Blackened”, the earth’s population was nearly eradicated. Those who survived banded together in separate communities and forced to survive by any means possible. Wars between these communities raged on, death was life. One such community known as Ravenshire , has been struck with a deadly plague that threatens to destroy them all. The cause and spread of this plague is unknown.The victims experience high fevers, vomiting of blood and grotesque swelling of bodily features. Because of this plague they become dangerously delusional and violent.
