Top Haunted House in the Country Announces Highly-Anticipated Themes for This Fall

Haunt season is lurking around the corner and the team behind the world-renowned NETHERWORLD Haunted House is ready to reveal the terrifying themes for its 25th anniversary, RISE OF THE NETHERSPAWN and RETURN TO PLANET X in 3D. Ready to immerse yourself in a nightmare world of classic horror? Enter RISE OF THE NETHERSPAWN! In the deepest caverns below the cursed city of Whyshburg an ancient creature summons an army of horrific nightmares led by the twin abominations, FEAR and TERROR, as a colossal storm of shadows engulfs the world to conceal this army of horrors from the NETHERWORLD! Are you prepared for a mind-melting adventure using advanced 3D technology? Thrill-seekers will put on 3D glasses to explore a top-secret facility filled with bizarre rips in the very fabric of reality, confront malignant alien life forms and find a way to make them RETURN TO PLANET X!

“Our 25th anniversary is a huge milestone that we are very proud of,” said Ben Armstrong, NETHERWORLD Haunted House co-creator. “We wouldn’t be where we are without the devoted haunt fans that have made NETHERWORLD a Halloween tradition in the Atlanta area and beyond!  We have a ton of new amazingly terrifying surprises for everyone to experience and a lot of classic characters from our history-making a triumphant comeback.  It will definitely be an unforgettable season of screams!”

More about this year’s two haunts:

Fulfilling the wishes of The Collector, a primordial monster known as The Ganoga will summon the twins, FEAR and TERROR, to lead an invasion of hideous creatures from the NETHERWORLD! Bone-crunching Berserkers and flesh-rending Rabid lead the charge, hidden deep within the swirling mists and flashing lightning of a colossal storm of shadows! Will the maelstrom conceal the crawling horrors from their helpless victims, or will they glimpse the RISE OF THE NETHERSPAWN in time to flee for their lives?

Featuring: The Storm of Shadows, Trapped in the Wreckage, the Fisherman’s Nightmare, Eaten by the Old Ones, the Collector’s Crypt, the Starving Skull, the Jaws of Fate, the Swamp of the Lost, the Maggots of Madness, the Rage of the Rabid, the Berserkers Revenge, the Goblin Horde, the Court of the Warlord and the Soul Eater Unleashed! Twenty-five years of never-ending nightmares culminates in this apocalyptic festival of destruction as guests witness the RISE OF THE NETHERSPAWN!

In the secret base known as the BOX, an experiment gone wrong has broken down the very fabric of time and space releasing bizarrely colorful mutagenic energy through dimensional gateways all over the facility! Weird, malevolent life forms stalk victims throughout the complex and the very fabric of reality is crumbling. Exobiologist, Dr. Otto Gloman, has gone into the rift equipped with a powered space suit, to stop the horror and force it to RETURN TO PLANET X in 3D! Guests will put on special 3D glasses and help him defeat this bizarre invasion before it consumes the entire planet.

Featuring: The Ghastly Gloaming, the Horror of the Hunes, the Malevolent Mutations, the Power of the Pyramid, the Secrets of the Serpent Men, the Paradox of Planet X, the Revenge of the Reptilians, the Primal Polymorphs, the Color Out of Space, the Mega Xeno Arthropod and the Nightmares from Beyond Time! Those who are brave enough to join the daunting mission will be pressured to retain a fragile grip on reality while viewing this world of horror through 3D glasses as they RETURN TO PLANET X.

“As our 25th anniversary approaches, we continue to take the necessary COVID-19 precautions to keep scare fans safe,” said Billy Messina, NETHERWORLD Haunted House co-creator. “As we did last year, we have procedures in place regarding ticketing, sanitizing and more that will help ensure a safe environment for both guests and employees alike.”

Adrenaline seekers looking for a little extra adventure can still get their fix while anxiously awaiting this season’s haunts through NETHERWORLD’s escape rooms and outdoor laser tag arena.
