The Messenger Wiki

The Voodoo Heart is the fourth and final area of the Picnic Panic DLC in The Messenger. It is the heart of Fire Mountain, where the Dark Messenger races take place.

The north side of the Voodoo Heart is accessed from Fire Mountain after a cutscene.


The Voodoo Heart is within the heart of a volcano, so the area is composed of volcanic rock and lava. Deep within the heart is an arena with tiers in the bedrock designed for an audience. A large decorative skull cries streams of lava. Many rivers of lava pour out of the walls and into a huge pool that fills up the volcano.

  • In the Dark Messenger race room that is reached by acquiring two wins and one loss, there is a statue of a beast, a young woman, and a child that references The Shopkeeper's story in the ending of Picnic Panic.
