Amy | 2 comments I remember that this is a illustrated 'children's' picture book, but had dark illustrations. You were in some kind of abandoned theme park/carnival thing, and you had options which lead you to a new page which moved you through the place. There were pictures of extremely evil, demented looking clowns. May be an Australian book, but may not.

Daredevil Park (Choose Your Own Adventure, #114) by Sara Compton

The Circus (Choose Your Own Adventure Young Readers, #1) by Edward Packard

How I Became a Freak (Choose Your Own Nightmare, #15) by Richard Brightfield

Amy, are you still looking for this or did you find it?

Amy | 2 comments Apologies, apparently I never replied to the suggestions! I just looked up all the books suggested, and they don't exactly match my mental image of the book, but I might not even be able to recognise it if I saw it because I last saw it when I was about 6. So I think it might be a lost cause.

Simi | 67 comments Are you sure it's not Funfair of Evil. There have been cover redesigns over the years but the inside will remain the same.
