Travelling With The Scooby Gang

Those ‘pesky kids’ have ventured both near and far in their Mystery Machine; from the shores of Hawaii to the lochs of Scotland; from the bustle of Tokyo, to the grandeur of Arabia. Wherever there’s a mystery to be solved, the gang can be relied upon. We’ve taken a look at the travels of Mystery Inc. around the globe as they head to Tinseltown in LEGO Scooby-Doo!: Haunted Hollywood, released on October 24.

Scooby-Doo! Haunted Hollywood
Hollywood, home of the American film industry, is where the gang travel to for a burger-eating contest, which Scooby and Shaggy win. Their prize is a tour of the local film studios famed for its horror films. Only all is not well, their latest work is being sabotaged apparently by their own monsters. Can the gang uncover who or what is behind this latest mystery?

Aloha, Scooby-Doo! (Hawaii)
Daphne has been asked to design swimwear for a Hawaiian clothing company and the gang arrives in time for the Big Kahuna surfing competition. It’s rumoured that the mayor has angered the Tiki spirits by selling off sacred land to developers, and with demons and the dangerous ‘Wiki-Tiki’ running amok, can the gang save the day before the deadly volcano erupts?

Scooby-Doo! And The Samurai Sword (Tokyo)
The gang travels to Tokyo, where the Black Samurai and his ninjas have awoken from the dead to find the all-powerful Sword of Fate. The gang are implored to find the sword before them and travel Asia solving a series of ancient riddles. Meanwhile, Shaggy and Scooby have fallen under the spell of the Sword Master. Will the gang beat the ninja army and rescue the sword?

Scooby-Doo! Scooby-Doo In Arabian Nights
The gang travel to Arabia for Shaggy and Scooby to become the Caliph’s royal food tasters. With their insatiable appetites, they don’t taste but eat all the food, leaving nothing for the young royal. Chased by guards, the pair don the disguise of Harem girls and the Caliph falls madly in love, proclaiming he will marry the disguised Shaggy. Can they escape before discovery?

Scooby-Doo! And the Monster Of Mexico
Scooby and the gang head to Mexico on the Day of the Dead to visit a Fred’s pen pal, Alejo. Only upon their arrival, they learn that Alejo’s family are being forced to sell their hotel to developers and the town is being terrorised by a hairy monster the locals nickname ‘El Chupacabra’. Can the gang save their hotel and the celebrations?

Scooby-Doo! And The Loch Ness Monster (Scotland)
The gang decide to visit Daphne’s ancestral home, Blake Castle in Scotland and set about helping her family host their Highland Games event. When it’s revealed that a gigantic creature, thought to be the Loch Ness Monster, is terrorising the castle and threatening to ruin the impending games, rival zoologists battle to capture and sell the beast. Can they solve this one?
