We crapped ourselves at ‘Goosebumps Alive’. Are you brave enough for London’s newest immersive theatre experience?

R. L. Stine’s ‘Goosebumps’ series still has a cult following. Trust. If you don’t believe us, ask your older siblings or even your parents. ‘Goosebumps’ was the pinnacle of scary before the interenets gave us Creepypasta and the Slender Man.

The audience is treated to 3 creepy playlets inspired some of the 60+ books in the series, with sets and costumes to marvel at. Take a look for yourself:
