The twisted minds behind America’s top-rated haunt, NETHERWORLD Haunted House, are gearing up for two incredible special events this December. On Saturday, December 14, A Haunted Holiday will feature a yuletide takeover of NETHERWORLD’s 2019 main attraction, NIGHT OF THE GORGON, a festive holiday midway, a gift shop filled with creepy seasonal goodies, and a special laser tag event called MUTANT MADNESS that will be held inside of the COLD BLOODED haunt. Then, for the first time in their new Stone Mountain location on Saturday, December 28, NETHERWORLD will reopen for a Lights on Tour featuring both NIGHT OF THE GORGON and COLD BLOODED. It will be a never-before-seen look behind the curtain of the nation’s most legendary haunted attraction and the ultimate gift for any haunt fanatic!
First up on Saturday, December 14, NETHERWORLD presents A Haunted Holiday! Six guests will enter the attraction and will be led on a rope by a ghostly spirit through a full production of NIGHT OF THE GORGON featuring seasonally inspired monsters, holiday themed scenes, and perhaps most importantly… only one group will occupy a given space at a given time! Then, unexpectedly, your guide will vanish, leaving your group to survive the last portion of the haunt without their protection! This carefully paced event is a great way to experience the house without the larger crowds you might encounter during October. Once you exit the attraction you will be able to enjoy NETHERWORLD’s holiday themed midway and gift shop chock full of great Christmas gifts for the lover of spooky things in your life.
This night also features a separately ticketed event called MUTANT MADNESS. Guests will enter the COLD BLOODED attraction armed with advanced laser tag equipment and blast their way through hideous creatures on a quest to see who will get the best score. But it’s not that easy – when the monsters attack, you need to blast them fast or they can damage your weapon and knock you out of the game. Tickets for MUTANT MADNESS are $15 each and will only be available in the NETHERWORLD Gift Shop on a first come, first served basis. Individual tickets for A Haunted Holiday are $25.95 online. If any tickets remain, they will be available at the door for $28. Or if you have a posse, round them up to take advantage of a limited number of discounted six-pack bundles, available online for $125.95. Timed ticket slots include 6:30pm, 7:00pm, 7:30pm, 8:00pm, 8:30pm and 9:00pm.
Then on Saturday, December 28, experience NETHERWORLD as never before with an extremely limited, reserved entry Lights on Tour. You and a very small group of guests will be taken through NIGHT OF THE GORGON and COLD BLOODED with the house lights turned on and the haunt effects turned off – exposing all the details that have helped make NETHERWORLD the highly lauded attraction that it is today. Guests will be accompanied by a knowledgeable guide who will explain the storylines and production details behind the sets, and each person will receive a free souvenir printed photo to commemorate the experience. Additionally, for the first time in NETHERWORLD history, there will even be multiple opportunities to stop and take pictures inside the actual haunts. Don’t miss this rare chance to go behind the screams… the perfect gift for any haunted house enthusiast!
“We’ve been thinking about doing a premium small group event for a long time now,” said Ben Armstrong, NETHERWORLD Haunted House Co-Creator. “This is a gift from us to the true haunt fans… the ones who have wanted to see the haunt with the lights on for years! Coupled with an informative guided tour and photo stops along the way, this is a great way to really understand the layers of detail put into this place!”
NETHERWORLD’s massive entertainment complex in Stone Mountain has provided room for endless screams, memories and attractions including two haunted houses, four year-round escape rooms, a year-round Laser Adventure Battle Arena, a monster museum, an expanded midway experience, an elaborate gift shop and more. With 2020 just around the corner, patrons can expect nonstop thrilling chills into the New Year and beyond!

A block party isn’t complete without festivities for the kids. Primrose Schools will be on-site to host holiday-themed craft activities, and a DJ will be spinnin’ classic holiday tunes, getting the whole family in the spirit.
