About The Series

Chester and Mapplethorpe are inseparable until Mapplethorpe dies in a tragic accident at Crazy Fun Park — an abandoned theme park on the edge of their small town, Asphodel Heights. Chester is grief-stricken until he discovers Mapplethorpe continues to ‘live’ at the park alongside a bunch of other undead kids who’ve perished there over the years. Soon, Chester finds solace in nightly escapades to visit his friend and the other Fun Kids — leading to horrific, unexpected, and often hilarious consequences. Crazy Fun Park was the winner of the 2023 Logie Award for Most Outstanding Children’s Program.
