Still a great game after all these years, brings back so many memories. That thing in the sewer has haunted my dreams since I was 5. Tested and working fine on winXP, win7 (xp compatibility + 640x480 reolution) and on win10 (run as administrator)

So I found a way to play this game, since disc 2 doesn't work. Follow this link [ https://collectionchamber.blogspot.com/2017/10/goosebumps-escape-from-horrorland.html?m=1 ]. This is a link to a Windows 95 emulator by DosBox, which already has the game preinstalled. And yes, disc 2 does work. Enjoy!

So (Windows 10) the first disc works fine. Colors are perfect and everything works after messing around with the compatibility settings. But disc 2 doesn't work. I've been trying to solve this issue for weeks. Yes, I did burn disc 1 onto a CD, but disc 2 doesn't even have a setup file. I tried the ISO and the Alternate ISO, yet no luck. This seems to be the issue on all sites offering this game; the second disc just won't work. What a bummer!

When running the gb app within the setup folder after making the changes from the first comment, it says : GB EFH was not found on drive, please run setup and install. Only, running the Setup says: this app can't run on your PC. This is for Win10 x64. This doesn't work with Windows 10. Windows 10 by default mounts ISOs with no needed extra software. This doesn't work with Windows 10.

This was a headache to get to work but eventually what worked for me was
1) burn the first iso to a cd and install the game
2) Mount the iso on a virtual drive
3) explore the mounted iso and find the setup folder
4) find the GB application, right click, properties, compatibility
(my settings that have it working are: compatibility mode: windows xp service pack 2, reduced color mode in 256, and run in 640x480, i left disable fullscreen optimizations off
5) double left click gboption (in the same setup folder as the other one) and UNCHECK direct draw.
after that double click the gb you modified before and it should ask for the game cd to be put into your cd drive and it SHOULD work.
took me a day n a half but I got it fullscreen and working fine

So, to get past the disk issue, what you need to do is use burning software to burn the ISOs onto a CD-R. Then you should be able to change discs when prompted and click enter without having the game crash. At least this is what worked for me.
Each ISO (Disc 1 and Disc 2) should be burned on a separate disc. I used Power2Go. (I don't know if it was bundled with Win 10, but if it is, there should be an option "View disc image" when you right click on one of the two .iso files. If you click that it'll open Power2Go. On the top menu bar there should be an option to "Burn to disc."

I just got Escape From Horrorland from Amazon today. I had to mess with the resolution quite a bit. The game is fine until Lizzy and I get transported to Horrorland. But the screen blacks out after crashing into Horrorland. So, when the game actually starts after Lizzy's introduction, I can't see anything. I can hear her talking. But as I said earlier, the screen goes completely black after arriving in Horrorland. Has anyone else had this problem?

the only way i have been able to play the game WITH saving and loading and no crashing is by running goosebumps through the Windows troubleshooting mode, where they have you use the recommended settings and you “test the program”... it plays in a smaller section of the screen so i turn down my resolution just before. ONLY problem now is when you get to vampire village with the disk 2 prompt! i even dug up my old goosebumps disks to try and make it work with that but no luck yet.

I'm having the problem where if I save it crashes, and when I try to load anything or go into the esc menu it crashes

I can't even get it to install on windows 8.1 x64. It says that "this app cannot run on your pc" with setup.exe in 256 color and compatibility mode for windows 95

Does anyone know how to get into the second part of the game from the vampire village onwards? It’s the point that you’re supposed to change disks, but that’s obviously not possible here. There is no gb.exe is the disk 2 folder so I have no idea what to do next. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
No setup folder 2017-09-21 -5 points

I followed Chris's instructions and they do seem to work. The problem for me was that gboption.exe reset back to using Direct Draw after the first time I fussed with the gb.exe file's properties. Weird but whatever, just deselected it again, went back and ran gb.exe as Administrator, and it ran properly. The only remaining issue is that clicking almost anything in the Escape menu during gameplay causes the game to crash. The only exception is that you can save your game (whereupon the game will immediately crash) but then it crashes the moment you try to load any saves, so it's kind of pointless to do so.
Drive missing 2017-07-10 -1 point
Did everything that "Chris said to do, and I'm on Windows 10, but now I'm getting a message that I'm missing a drive. It might be because I'm using WinCDEmu to create a virtual drive for the ISO file. Any ideas on how to proceed, Chris?

I think something might be wrong with the file, I followed all of Chris's instructions and it still runs without color. Even tried playing around with different settings but no luck. I'm going to try a virtual box with win 95 and see how that works.

Yeah my game doesn't have colour too. I tried Chris' help but it doesn't give the game colour. I'll play around with the setting and I'll post back if I find a solution.

Tested on Windows 10. Requires the following settings to run properly:
2. Open the “setup” folder.
3. Run “gboption.exe” and uncheck “direct draw.”
4. Open properties for “gb.exe”, and click the compatibility tab.
5. Check to run in “640 x 480” resolution.
6. Running in Windows 95 mode probably can’t hurt either.
7. Run “gb.exe” to play.
