Goosebumps Immersive Theater Experience Opening in London

What many consider to be the gold standard in children’s horror novels is coming to life in the form of an immersive theatrical experience in London, and it’s for adults 18-and-over. That’s right, R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps book series will live on starting April 2016 in a new show called Goosebumps Alive.

According to Scholastic, the book’s publishing company, more than 400 million copies of Goosebumps have circulated in print worldwide. That is second only to the Harry Potter series. Even though the books have been adapted for television and even the recent movie starring Jack Black, this is the first time it will be seen on the stage.

The show will take place in the abandoned railway tunnels underneath London’s Waterloo station, which has been home to several immersive theater productions in recent years. Guests will traverse a series of 19 rooms at their own pace and come into contact with characters made famous from the novels.

Some of the novels Goosebumps Alive will be inspired by are Stay Out Of The Basement, One Day In Horrorland, Night Of The Living Dummy and Say Cheese and Die! Personally, I think this a great idea for adults who grew up with the series to see these characters fleshed out in an immersive theater show that will blend horror and humor.

Starting in May, there will be a version for children opening on the weekends as well. Taking place in the same tunnels, the show will be toned down and less disturbing for younger audiences. So who’s in for a trip to London this spring? For more information, visit the Goosebumps Alive website!
