The GET GOOSEBUMPS Mall Tour kicked off earlier in October and now that it has been to a couple of cities, we thought we would tell you about some of the cool stuff the tour offers and where it has been so far. The most popular part of the tour has been the viral video activity. This is where someone can get their picture taken and then go online to find out what exactly they got their picture taken for . . . just a little hint, it provides a bit of a SCARE where it is least expected. Visitors to the tour also had the opportunity to try out the Goosebumps video game for the Wii and get their photo taken as a Goosebumps Horror!
Here are a couple of photos and quotes from the cities visited so far —
The tour started off on October 3rd in Seattle, Washington at the Tacoma Mall. There were many intrigued Goosebumps fans that couldn’t wait to see what the event was all about.
“I love Goosebumps. It is my favorite book of all time!”

The next stop on the tour was the Westminster Mall in Westminster, California. Some Goosebumps fans stopped by in their Halloween Costumes! This location was a hot-spot for Goosebumps fans of all ages:
