ATLANTA: Haunt fans, the time has finally arrived – NETHERWORLD has returned for its third year in Stone Mountain and 24th year on the haunt scene, and now has its very own street name, 1313 Netherworld Way! After the success of sneak peek weekend on Sept. 25 and 26, this season’s two attractions, HALLOWEEN NIGHTMARES and CYBORG SHOCK, are ready to provide the mix of terrifying moments and exhilarating fun guests expect every year from this over-the-top Halloween event. Visitors will dive into two distinctly different scary experiences swarming with unique creatures, sets, and special effects, then explore new outdoor areas like The Festival of Monsters.
“Our entire crew has been working tirelessly to make this season’s haunts as thrilling and impressive as possible, and we are excited to finally announce our full calendar for the 2020 season,” said Billy Messina, NETHERWORLD Haunted House co-creator. “Along with delivering an incredible experience for our guests, we are dedicated to maintaining a safe environment for both our staff and guests alike. With a full slate of carefully planned COVID-19 policies and procedures in effect, such as limiting capacity and timing entry to allow for social distancing, this year is sure to be just as safe as it is spooky.”
Known for intense special effects, state-of-the-art makeup and incredibly elaborate sets, NETHERWORLD has built and maintained a loyal following over the last 24 years, and this season the haunt has already been ranked as one of “10 of the Scariest Haunted Houses in America” by O, The Oprah Magazine.
Despite COVID-19 related changes, guests can expect this year to be as thrilling and entertaining as ever.
NETHERWORLD will be enacting a myriad of new safety measures, among the most obvious will be:
- Masks required for all staff and guests
- Greatly reduced capacity and timed/dated tickets to allow for social distancing
- Contactless temperature screenings for all staff and guests
- Enhanced cleaning and sanitizing procedures along with a multitude of available hand sanitizer/washing stations

Given the greatly reduced number of available tickets for the 2020 haunt season, guests are strongly encouraged to purchase tickets online and well in advance as timeslots will sell out. In addition, all tickets will grant access to both HALLOWEEN NIGHTMARES and CYBORG SHOCK, and guests will be directed from one haunt directly into the other to maintain single direction flow and allow for better social distancing.
Timed entry tickets allow guests access to the queue lines during a designated 30-minute timeslot. Up to one half hour before the designated timeslot begins, guests can wait in a socially distanced pre-queue area. Guests should not arrive earlier, if they do, it is suggested that they wait in their vehicle until 30 minutes before the time designated on their tickets. Additionally, SpeedPasses, which are also timed, are available and offer guests a convenience above and beyond that of a regular timed ticket, allowing entry at a greatly expedited pace. At the conclusion of both haunts, all guests will have access to the newly expanded Midway area.

Based on classic harvest and horror themes, HALLOWEEN NIGHTMARES’ story begins over one hundred years ago when the survivors of a brutal family feud sought vengeance against another mountain clan. Utilizing evil powers stolen from monsters beneath the earth, they were transformed into savage bat-like creatures and slaughtered their enemies on Halloween night! This Halloween, these subterrain monsters have resurfaced once more, disguised as distorted costumed revelers bent on bringing destruction to the cursed town of Whyshburg! Guests can expect eerie shadow creatures, legions of grinning jack-o’-lanterns, the Lair of the Ancient Alchemist, the Chamber of the Elder Thing and the Temple of the Bat God. Prepare for more vintage Halloween horror than one’s melted mind can handle!
Can guests survive the Robot Rampage? A strange metallic obelisk of unknown origin stored in a secret facility known as the BOX has blasted out an electromagnetic pulse and seized control of the entire base. Now the robotics and cloning sections have begun creating nightmarish Cyborgs, half metal and half flesh, animated by a strange energy emanating from the artifact. This army of hybrid horrors is making its way to the surface armed with the most advanced weaponry imaginable, bent on total domination! Can guests halt this menace before they escape to wreak havoc on an unsuspecting world?
