Alexander's class is going on a field trip to an amusement park. Everyone is excited — until they find out they're going to SAFETY Land — where the rides are slow and boring! Before the students take a ride on the Slow and Steady Teacups, a weird magician tells them there's a haunted roller coaster at the park. And Alexander starts seeing odd scratch marks all over the place. Is there REALLY a ghost at Safety Land? The S.S.M.P. is about to find out!
