Return to the Carnival of Horrors

Return to the Carnival of Horrors is a novella written by R. L. Stine. It was first published in 1997 and is the 22nd book in the Give Yourself Goosebumps book series.


You escaped the first time. But Big Al, the evil carnival manager, wants your second visit to last forever!

You've got to get out there--before midnight. If you win three midway games, you have a chance. But the games are horrifyingly hard. Like Q Quest. If you pick the wrong number, the penalty will really blow you away!

Maybe you should look for a way out on the rides. But watch out for the Roller Ghoster. It's a steer-yourself roller coaster--filled with ghosts!

The choice is yours in this scary GOOSEBUMPS adventure that's packed with over 20 super-spooky endings!
