this book is the definition of an unnecessary sequel. While this is supposed to be a sequel to One Day in Horrorland of the original Goosebumps series, this book retains basically nothing from its superior original other than important names. Horrorland was originally a theme park. However, the characters never encounter a single ride. Instead, they stumble through a bunch of half-baked, barely cohesive scenes involving an Egyptian pyramid, a dentist office, a sandy desert, and a magic show. The plot jerks along with all the focus of a drunk squirrel, and I found a sick pleasure just wondering what absurd thing is the author going to throw at me next? It might have been enjoyable as a kid, but this book is just literary junk food disguised as a children's novel. Despite finding some enjoyment from the absurdity of the plot, I can't recommend anybody pay money for this.
