SCP-7190 - The Discovery Zone
Item #: SCP-7190
Object Class: Euclid
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-7190 is to be monitored by Foundation satellites equipped with "████████████ Software." Upon detection of SCP-7190's manifestation, the coordinates are to be immediately relayed to MTF █████-A and MTF █████-B. These Mobile Task Forces are to be dispatched to SCP-7190's location, with MTF █████-A securing the main entrance and LED sign, while MTF █████-B secures the road entrance.
Any individuals found exiting SCP-7190 are to be contained immediately. Upon the conclusion of SCP-7190's yearly cycle, all organic or inorganic structures are to be restored to their original state before the next manifestation.
Description: SCP-7190 is a former Discovery Zone, a children's indoor playground, once located at The Marketplace Mall in Rochester, New York. The location of SCP-7190 now randomly manifests within the forested area of [REDACTED] Park, New York, appearing and disappearing on a yearly cycle.
During its manifestation, SCP-7190 temporarily removes any pre-existing organic or inorganic structures in the area. Living organisms affected by SCP-7190 will cease to exist until the manifestation cycle ends.
When SCP-7190 manifests, it is accompanied by a stretch of asphalt road (SCP-7190-1) of varying length. A colorful metal sign, displaying the original Discovery Zone logo from the 1990s, is placed at the entrance of SCP-7190-1 with an arrow pointing towards SCP-7190. SCP-7190-1 exhibits hypnotic properties that affect any humans who drive or walk on the road.

Addendum: SCP-7190 Test Log #7190-A
Test #: 7190-A
Procedure: D-4962, a D-Class personnel equipped with a body-mounted camera, was instructed to enter SCP-7190 while MTF █████-A and MTF █████-B secured the entrances. The objective was to gather information about the interior of SCP-7190.
Results: Upon entering SCP-7190, D-4962 reported that the interior appeared identical to a standard Discovery Zone from the 1990s, complete with play structures, ball pits, and arcade games. The layout of the facility, however, was observed to be far more extensive and labyrinthine than any known Discovery Zone, with corridors and play areas stretching beyond the camera's field of view.
As D-4962 progressed through SCP-7190, the environment gradually became more distorted and surreal. Some notable observations included:
A ball pit containing orbs that appeared to be filled with an unidentified, viscous liquid. Upon touching the orbs, D-4962 reported experiencing intense feelings of dread and despair.
An arcade game that, when interacted with, displayed personal information about D-4962, including traumatic events from his past.
A room filled with life-sized animatronic versions of popular children's characters from the 1990s. These animatronics behaved aggressively towards D-4962, attempting to physically restrain him.
Despite these abnormalities, no other humans were encountered during the exploration. After ██ minutes, D-4962 was ordered to exit SCP-7190. Upon leaving, D-4962 exhibited signs of severe psychological trauma and was taken into Foundation custody for debriefing and evaluation.
Note: Due to the potential psychological hazards present within SCP-7190, further exploration and testing are to be approved by Level 3 personnel or higher.
Addendum: SCP-7190 Test Log #7190-B
Test #: 7190-B
Procedure: D-7381, a D-Class personnel equipped with a body-mounted camera and two-way communication device, was instructed to enter SCP-7190 and explore the laser tag area while MTF █████-A and MTF █████-B secured the entrances. The objective was to gather further information about the interior of SCP-7190, focusing specifically on the laser tag area.
Results: Upon entering SCP-7190, D-7381 reported a similar experience to D-4962, with the initial appearance resembling a standard Discovery Zone from the 1990s. D-7381 followed directions provided by researchers and successfully located the entrance to the laser tag area.
As D-7381 entered the laser tag arena, the environment began to change drastically. The walls of the arena appeared to be composed of a dark, pulsating organic material, and the air was thick with an oppressive, otherworldly atmosphere. A sense of unease and dread grew more intense the further D-7381 ventured into the arena.
Several horrifying discoveries were made within the laser tag area, including:
A group of lifeless, desiccated human bodies, suspended from the ceiling by an unknown, translucent substance. The bodies appeared to be in various states of decay, suggesting they had been trapped for varying lengths of time.
An instance of SCP-7190-2, a humanoid entity composed entirely of darkness, which seemed to absorb any light that came into contact with it. SCP-7190-2 pursued D-7381 throughout the arena, appearing and disappearing at random intervals. Each time it appeared, it emitted a cacophony of distorted, anguished screams.
A room filled with various laser tag vests and guns, all of which appeared to be fused to the bodies of previous victims. These victims were still conscious and in visible agony, begging D-7381 for help. Attempts to remove the equipment only caused further pain and injury to the victims.
After ██ minutes, D-7381 was ordered to exit SCP-7190 immediately. Upon leaving, D-7381 exhibited extreme psychological distress and was taken into Foundation custody for debriefing and evaluation.
Note: Due to the significant psychological and physical hazards present within SCP-7190's laser tag area, further exploration and testing are to be approved by Level 4 personnel or higher. The existence of SCP-7190-2 warrants further investigation and containment measures.
Addendum: SCP-7190 Test Log #7190-C
Test #: 7190-C
Procedure: Four D-Class personnel (D-9512, D-6824, D-3201, and D-4513) were each instructed to wear a different Discovery Zone worker uniform and enter SCP-7190. MTF █████-A and MTF █████-B secured the entrances while the D-Class personnel explored the interior, reporting their experiences via two-way communication devices.
D-9512: Wore a uniform from the Spokane Valley Mall location. Shortly after entering SCP-7190, D-9512 reported being pursued by an unseen entity. D-9512 attempted to evade the entity by climbing onto the roller slide but was subsequently crushed to death between the rollers.
D-6824: Wore a uniform created by the SCP Foundation. Upon entering SCP-7190,
D-6824 vanished in a puff of ashes. No further communication was received from D-6824.
D-3201: Wore a uniform from the Discovery Zone near the Marketplace Mall in Rochester, New York location. D-3201 did not witness any of the incidents that occurred with the other D-Class personnel. D-3201 reported an unusual craving for soda and snacks, leading them to the food court area. After consuming the desired items, D-3201 left SCP-7190 unharmed.
D-4513: Wore an unused Discovery Zone uniform, made by the company but never assigned to a specific location. Upon entering SCP-7190, D-4513 walked to a table and sat down, refusing to explore the area or communicate further. Despite repeated orders to leave SCP-7190, D-4513 remained seated and unresponsive.
After the conclusion of the test, MTF █████-A was sent in to retrieve D-4513. Upon reaching D-4513, they discovered that D-4513 had been fused to the table and chair, their body now a lifeless, rigid part of the furniture.
Conclusion: SCP-7190 appears to react differently to individuals based on their attire, with a particular sensitivity to uniforms associated with the Discovery Zone franchise. The results of this test suggest that SCP-7190 has a capacity to recognize and distinguish between authentic uniforms and those created or unused by the Discovery Zone company. Further testing is recommended to better understand the implications of these observations.
Addendum: SCP-7190 Test Log #7190-D
Test #: 7190-D
Procedure: Two individuals with growth hormone deficiency, designated as Test Subjects 1 and 2, were dressed in 1997 children's clothing and accompanied by two D-Class personnel (D-1045 and D-7639), who pretended to be their parents. The test was conducted to determine if SCP-7190 recognizes individuals based on their physical properties or their perceived appearance.
Results: Upon entering SCP-7190, Test Subjects 1 and 2 reported that the interior appeared as a normal Discovery Zone, filled with people and functioning as a typical children's play area. They did not experience any of the disturbing phenomena previously encountered by D-Class personnel.
Conversely, D-1045 and D-7639 lost all control of their actions and memories upon entering SCP-7190. They began referring to Test Subjects 1 and 2 by new names and behaved as if they were genuinely the subjects' parents. All communication with D-1045 and D-7639 ceased.
After three hours, Test Subjects 1 and 2 were instructed by SCP Foundation personnel to exit SCP-7190 without the D-Class personnel. As they were leaving, eight Discovery Zone workers rushed towards the exit, attempting to block their path. Test Subjects 1 and 2 managed to slip past the workers, but the screams of D-1045 and D-7639, accompanied by sounds of slicing through flesh and bone, were heard as the door closed behind them.
Following the test, Test Subjects 1 and 2 had their memories of the incident wiped by the SCP Foundation. Both were paid a large, undisclosed sum of money for their participation in the test.
Conclusion: SCP-7190 appears to be sensitive to the appearance and perceived identity of individuals who enter its interior. The environment adapts to the perceived age and role of the individuals, leading to a wide range of experiences and outcomes. Further testing is recommended to better understand the full extent of SCP-7190's adaptive capabilities.
Addendum: SCP-7190 Test Log #7190-E
Test #: 7190-E
Procedure: A drone equipped with a camera and two-way communication was sent into SCP-7190 to investigate the interior, with a focus on locating the remains of previously lost D-Class personnel and any other anomalies.
Results: Upon entering SCP-7190, the drone navigated through the distorted and surreal environment, capturing footage of various disturbing phenomena. During its exploration, the drone located the remains of D-1045 and D-7639, whose bodies were found entangled and stretched into the netting of the playground jungle gym area. The structural integrity of their bodies appeared to have been compromised, fusing them into the netting itself.
The drone continued its investigation and located the roller slide where D-9512 had been crushed to death during Test 7190-A. D-9512's remains were still trapped between the rollers, showing no signs of decomposition or removal.
After completing its exploration, the drone was able to exit SCP-7190 without sustaining any damage. The footage and data collected during this test have been archived for further analysis.
Conclusion: The discovery of the remains of D-Class personnel within SCP-7190 further emphasizes the potential dangers and unpredictable nature of this anomaly. The use of drones for future tests may be a viable option for minimizing the risk to human personnel. However, it is unclear if SCP-7190 will adapt to the presence of non-human entities over time. Further testing is recommended to better understand SCP-7190's behavior and potential countermeasures.
Addendum: SCP-7190 Incident Log 2017-██
Incident Log: 2017-██
Incident: An unexpected event occurred during routine monitoring of SCP-7190. A Hispanic baby girl, approximately one year old, exited SCP-7190 wearing a Baby Bop onesie from the Barney & Friends TV show. The infant showed no immediate signs of distress or harm.
Foundation personnel on site quickly captured the baby and placed her in containment for observation and testing. Upon conducting a blood test, it was discovered that the baby's genetic profile matched that of a missing family from upstate New York who had disappeared in 2003. No other members of the family were found within or around SCP-7190.
The baby has been designated SCP-7190-3 and has remained in Foundation custody for further observation. Notably, SCP-7190-3 has not exhibited any signs of aging since her discovery, remaining physically and developmentally consistent with a one-year-old infant despite three years having passed.
Conclusion: This incident raises numerous questions regarding SCP-7190's capabilities, including possible temporal manipulation and its impact on human subjects. The discovery of SCP-7190-3 necessitates further investigation into the potential long-term effects of exposure to SCP-7190, as well as any other individuals who may be trapped within or affected by the anomaly.
