SCP-XXXX, prior to its neutralization.

Special Containment Procedures:

Archived Containment Procedures: As permanent containment of SCP-XXXX is currently infeasible, SCP-XXXX's current containment procedures have been created as to comply with SCP-XXXX-1. SCP-XXXX is to remain in operation at all times. During park hours, SCP-XXXX is to be operated by a minimum of four Foundation agents under the guise of being Magic Kingdom employees. If SCP-XXXX should require maintenance, the ride is to be immediately evacuated. Foundation agents are to use provided materials to create a summoning sigil as outlined in Document XXXX-SCM, before similarly evacuating the premises.

Foundation personnel are to never speak negatively of SCP-XXXX or other phenomena relating to the anomaly, as there are no such aspects to with negative qualities. Personnel found doing so will result in immediate demotion if the individual is recovered alive.

SCP-XXXX's passenger vehicles.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an amusement park ride1 constructed within the Tomorrowland portion of the Magic Kingdom amusement park in Orlando, Florida. SCP-XXXX consists of eight passenger vehicles designed to resemble submarines placed within a man made lagoon. These vehicles will move along a metal track and into a show building disguised as a rocky cavern. Within this show building are large underwater animatronics depicting various scenes that occupants would observe before exiting the facade.

SCP-XXXX is subject to a bureaucratic anomaly resulting from a contractual agreement (designated SCP-XXXX-1) between a group of Tartarean entities2 and The Walt Disney Company, in exchange for the construction of SCP-XXXX. While the exact details of SCP-XXXX-1 are unknown, approximately 45% of its content has been ascertained through interviews and recovered documents. Most of this content consists of various clauses regarding the operation of SCP-XXXX, most of which are perfectly justified and taken in good faith.3. Violation of this agreement will result in consequences of varying severity,4 with the most common result being the spontaneous malfunction of SCP-XXXX near the offending party, resulting in bodily harm or casualty. There is no currently known method of effectively ending SCP-XXXX-1.

SCP-XXXX functioned solely on demonics and demonic integrated technology. Although much of the internal mechanisms are unknown,5 several of its more prominent features were successfully examined without repercussion. SCP-XXXX drew power from an external demiconductor located within the show building, providing electricity in exchange for heat transfer. These democonductors provided power for the ride's lighting, animatronic pneumatics, and drainage system. Due to the unreliability of most early microsummoning devices, these systems were prone to malfunction, often requiring a complete evactuation of the ride for repairs.6

As per this agreement, SCP-XXXX functioned solely on demonics and demonic integrated technology. Much of the internal mechanisms of SCP-XXXX remain unknown

with flickering lights, independent animatronic movement, and unusual water pigmentation being common occurrences.

SCP-XXXX did not require an external power source to operate, instead drawing power from various internal demiconductors that provided electrical energy in exchange for heat transfer. These demiconductors mainly powered the ride's lightning, animatronic pneumatics, and drainage system. Due to the unreliability of early microsummoning devices, these systems were prone to malfunction, often requiring a temporary shutdown for repairs. SCP-XXXX's passenger vehicles each contained a single linear induction motor inlaid with an as of yet unidentified sigil. These motors possessed no visible source of power, and would continue operation once the attraction's main demiconductor was powered down.

SCP-XXXX's anomalous effects manifested once occupied by one or more individuals. Upon an instance of SCP-XXXX-1 entering the show building, it would be translocated approximately 6,000 km above the moon's surface. SCP-XXXX-1 would then suddenly accelerate to a speed of approximately [NUMBER] km/h. Despite this, occupants reported not experiencing any sensation of momentum. Occupants had also reported no difficulty breathing during the experience, although slight discomfort due to the sudden atmospheric change was common. Moving in a circumlunar trajectory, the vehicle would orbit the moon for an average of five minutes before being ejected towards Earth. Upon leaving the lunar orbit, SCP-XXXX-1 would emerge from the cavern at the same speed it entered, navigating along the underwater track towards the loading dock.

Discovery: SCP-XXXX was discovered on 1971/11/17, several weeks after the Magic Kingdom's initial opening. Following a steady decline in SCP-XXXX's popularity, the Foundation was contacted by John Hench, then creative director of The Walt Disney Company. An interview regarding SCP-XXXX was scheduled for the following day between Mr. Hench and then head of Foundation foreign affairs, Dr. Kennedy.

Interview XXXX/1:

Date: 1971/11/17

Interviewed: John Hench

Interviewer: Dr. Isabel Kennedy

Foreword:



Bubble machines found within the portholes would activate upon entry, simulating a diving effect. The show building contained several underwater scenes, such as a shipwreck, polar ice caps, and underwater ruins. The ride would conclude with the attack of a giant squid, with the vehicle exiting the show building soon after. Throughout SCP-XXXX, the fictional Captain Nemo7 was to comment on the scenery, guiding the guests through the attraction with his narration.

SCP-XXXX's anomalous effects manifested once occupied by one or more individuals. Upon an instance of SCP-XXXX-1 entering the show building, it would be translocated to an extraterrestrial location. This location and the duration of the translocation was dependent on the instance of SCP-XXXX-1 the subject was occupying, and had remained consistent between tests. Occupants had reported no difficulty breathing during this time, although discomfort due to the sudden atmospheric change was common. After a variable amount of time, SCP-XXXX-1 would emerge from the cavern, before navigating along the track towards SCP-XXXX's loading dock.
