This is a tale as old as time, 'The Legend of the Golden Key' is about a beautiful young girl who defies her miserly father and his promise of a fortune in gold and chooses instead to wed her penniless lover.

The lovers disappear but what of the fortune? One summer day five young hopefuls decide to solve the mystery of the Golden Key.

The story behind the legend is about a beautiful girl in old Ireland who defies her father and his promise of a fortune in gold, and instead chooses to run off with the pennyless love of her life.

The pair disappear, but what of the fortune? Tasper and his friends start their quest at the castle, where strange things begin to happen on the grounds and unexplained lights are seen in the sinister fairy fort.
