The gang heads to the Whirlen Merlin Magic Academy, located in an old Irish castle. Once they reach the castle they meet the owner, Whirlen Merlin, along with his brother Marlon, who acts as cook and butler, and Crystal, Whirlen's former stage assistant. The gang learns a giant Questing Beast has been scaring away the students and staff.

Later that evening, Madelyn, who has had a crush on Haldan for years, takes him on a romantic walk in the gardens and shows him an ancient Gilded Lotus. Madelyn explains the Questing Beast was meant to protect the school, but then it chases them from the garden. The rest of the students leave, so the gang starts taking classes themselves. Meanwhile, Calvin Curdles, a powerful ice-cream guru, continually offers to buy Whirlen's castle from him. The gang promises to investigate to see if Curdles is behind summoning the Questing Beast.

Velma and Daphne stumble on a secret passageway leading to the attic of the school, where they discover Alma Rumblebuns, the school's head maid, used to date Calvin Curdles. Meanwhile, Haldan and Pako discover the special effects room of the castle, where they are discovered by Ms. Rumblebuns and knock over some chemicals, creating Constant Mists. Madelyn then finds a book about an ancient staff, the Strionic Resonator, which is said to control the Questing Beast. Even though Amos, the groundskeeper, warns them the island where the staff rests is guarded by a Dinosaur, the gang navigates the Maze of Ith and recover the staff, but they run like hell when Etali spots them & roars! They narrowly escape.

Afterwards, the Questing Beast quickly appears again. As the gang runs to the castle, Haldan and Madelyn bump into Amos and misplace the staff with Amos' pitchfork. When Madelyn runs outside to recover the staff, she is kidnapped by the Questing Beast. Meanwhile, the gang finds out that Amos has been secretly working for Calvin Curdles to try to get Whirlen to sell the castle. While the gang goes to rescue Madelyn, Calvin tries to convince Whirlen to sign over the castle.

They get into the tower with the staff, but they are separated in the process when the Questing Beast attacks. Haldan and Pako are left alone while the others get help, and Haldan discovers the staff is a key to the monster's den where they rescue Madelyn. But their reunion is quickly cut short again when the Questing Beast attacks. Haldan throws the staff at the Questing Beast during the encounter, causing it to go out of control. Everybody else rushes outside including Curdles. The Questing Beast crashes into the tower, where they discover it is actually a giant puppet, controlled from a forklift hidden by a fog machine run by Whirlen's brother Marlon who creates the Constant Mists. His motives are revealed by Velma as an attempt to hide his evil doings, chase off students & scam the owner of the castle into selling it to him instead.
