“The Streets of Panic Park” is the conclusion to the series. After escaping Horrorland, the kids ended up in Panic Park. A world with no color, only black & white. There are not safe there, as the park is the home of the villain, The Menace. The sixteen kids have to have their fears and make unlikely allies before they can escape.

This is a great ending to the series. All the characters get to play apart in the foiling of The Menace’s plains. There are a few times where I had to laugh at the Menace. He was scary at all, just down right silly. I still recommend reading “The Streets of Panic Park.”

First off, I would like to tell you that “Welcome to Horrorland: A Survival Guide” is not an actually novel. There is no story to it. The book is in 13 different sections: Stagger Inn, Black Lagoon Water Park, Monster Police, Zombie Plaza, Werewolf Village, Rides & Entertainment, Monster Resources, Park Upkeep & Improvements, V.I.V.’s: Very Important Villains, The Power of 10, Vampire Village, Eyeballs, Spiders, Mirrors and More!, and Behind the Screams.

This is nothing more than a novelty book. If you’re a fan of “Goosebumps” and have read all the other books, then you may like this. If not, read “Goosebumps Horror land #1 Revenge of the Living Dummy” instead.
