Voice-Over Introduction

Raphael: You might ask what we're doing in a spooky old amusement park at night. You might ask what looking for or what's looking for us. You might ask why we're being attacked by what looks like a bunch of freaked out rides and why we're getting our shells kicked. Yeah, you might ask all that, but just don't. I ain't got time for questions right now.

Plot Synopsis

When his "family" doesn't turn out as he hoped, Nano begins to wreak havoc on Coney Island, where April and Casey happen to be on a "not-a-date."
