Goosebumps HorrorLand is a series of books written by R.L. Stine. It began in 2008, and ended in 2011 with nineteen books published. The series was a serialized adventure welcoming fans to HorrorLand, a vast theme park run by creatures called Horrors. The series also had story arcs, a Goosebumps first.
Each book had two stories. The first ten books had its own self-contained storyline which takes place outside the gates of HorrorLand, with a secondary story thread which leads its main character to HorrorLand only in the final few chapters. The next two books in the series served to wrap up the HorrorLand plot, uniting the characters and villains from the first ten books in a single climactic storyline. Books 13-19 featured a new storyline with different characters. The storyline centered around a HorrorLand gift shop and the protagonists who shopped there. The 19th and final book in the series wrapped up the story and brought all the characters from the last 6 books together.

Enter HorrorLand (story)
- Main article: Enter HorrorLand (story)
The first twelve books in the Goosebumps HorrorLand series are interconnected. The first ten books in the series tell independent stories, but each book features an "Enter HorrorLand" section at the end of each story. In this section, the protagonists of each book received an invitation to HorrorLand. The eleventh and twelfth books in the series are entirely focused on concluding the combined Enter HorrorLand story.
List of characters
- This series has characters from the old series, being Slappy, Carly Beth Caldwell, Sabrina Mason, Billy and Sheena Deep, The Haunted Mask, and Lizzy and Luke Morris meeting each other.
- Welcome to HorrorLand: A Survival Guide is a bonus book in the Goosebumps HorrorLand book series. The book was released between books 12 and 13 (serving as a divider between the two arcs). This book is unnumbered, but is sometimes referred to as book 12.5 or book 0. Also, in the Goosebumps Horrorland 1-20 Boxed Set, it is referred to as book 20.
- There is no consistent plot in this book. It is just a humorous book that describes the creatures and attractions of HorrorLand.
- The eighteenth book, Slappy New Year!, shares a name with one of the Goosebumps Gold books. The Goosebumps Gold books were cancelled in the early 2000s due to the expiration of R.L. Stine's contract with Scholastic. Although the titles are almost identical, Stine confirmed that the Goosebumps Gold version of Slappy New Year did not have the same plot as the Goosebumps HorrorLand book.
