The most highly-acclaimed and terrifying haunted house in the nation, NETHERWORLD Haunted House, is set to make its return during its Opening Weekend this Friday, Sept. 23 and Saturday, Sept. 24 with two nightmarish haunts and plenty of thrilling new additions to its Halloween themed Midway!

This year, thrill seekers will get the scare of their lives at NETHERWORLD’S PARASITIC and THE UNDYING HORROR haunted houses. In THE UNDYING HORROR, visitors will try to escape a massive world-destroying ancient monster and its wraithlike army, and in PARASITIC, guests will confront the mind-controlling spores and carnivorous chlorophyll creatures unleashed by a nefarious plant-based life form filled with the twisted power from last year’s Planet X!

“Both of our haunts this year blend elements of our previous stories into brand new tales, even more intense than the ones that came before them,” said NETHERWORLD Co-Founder Ben Armstrong. “The UNDYING HORROR is a continuation of the COSMIC HORROR saga that began when we first moved to Stone Mountain, and PARASITIC is a story of science gone wrong that features weird plant-based mutations of one of our classic characters, The Harvestman.”

Between the houses, NETHERWORLD has a new option for those who want to join in on the fright called “You Scare.” In this experience, true horror-lovers will get their shot at playing the villain by using a paintball gun, dubbed the “scare blaster,” to shoot paint at an unbreakable see-through barrier, startling those in line for the second haunted house.

In addition to both blood-curling haunts and “You Scare,” NETHERWORLD is launching a laser-based horror survival add-on experience for the first time ever. Titled “Alien Terror,” the experience will put NETHERWORLD adventurers face-to-face with an extraterrestrial monster that has one goal: to turn every player in the game into one of its evil minions with its laser weapon. The official opening date for this experience is to be announced, so stay tuned for more information!

The adventure continues with NETHERWORLD’s updated Midway experience, a Halloween-drenched area that attendees can explore featuring a myriad of creepy photo ops (including a huge new skeletal dragon), roaming creatures aplenty, and a variety of food options including hot dogs, nachos, demented donuts, and gourmet popcorn in flavors like classic butter and hot and spicy. This year NETHERWORLD is also introducing Dr. Octane’s Bizarre Beverages, where the sinister mad scientist Dr. Octane will serve up non-alcoholic bubbling concoctions featuring swirls of colors perfect for a share-worthy video!

“We are incredibly excited for veteran NETHERWORLD fans and first-timers alike to experience everything that we have to offer this year,” said NETHERWORLD Co-Founder Billy Messina. “Our goal has always been to provide visitors with a seasonal Halloween experience that’s beyond compare…and with all the upgrades we’ve made this year, both inside and outside the haunts, we hope that folks will feel that we’ve done exactly that.”

NETHERWORLD Haunted House will be open beginning the weekend of Sept. 23–24, then most dates through Halloween and weekends in November until the closing weekend on Nov. 11–12. Tickets are on sale now. For more details on the haunts and new additions and to buy tickets, visit www.fearworld.com

Continue for more information about this year’s two new haunts… 

THE UNDYING HORROR: Concealed in the chaos of a deadly storm, an ancient monstrosity launches massive tentacles to the surface world corrupting everything they touch! Can a battle-worn group of survivors fight their way past the legions of Wraiths and Netherspawn to defeat this nightmarish creature or will the world fall to The Undying Horror?   

Featuring: Warlike Wraiths, Rampaging Netherspawn, The Weird Lab of Dr. Squid, The Old One Arises, The Emergence of the Undying, The Monster-Infested Netherscape, The Undead Army of the Zombie Queen, The Swirling Mists of Zin, The Massive Tentacles of Ubbo Sathla, The Bone Beasts of Carcosa and Face to Face with the Undying Horror! A massive feast of nightmares invades a shattered planet as NETHERWORLD charges headlong into its 26th Season of Screams swarming with supercharged apocalyptic action!   

PARASITIC: A bizarre Parasitic plant-based life form filled with the twisted power of Planet X and grown on a discarded husk of The Harvestman springs to unnatural life in the top-secret facility known as the BOX! After infecting the staff with mind-controlling spores and unleashing an army of carnivorous plant and fungus-based creatures, it seeks vengeance on its foolish captors before attempting to escape into the world of men!  

Featuring: The Fungal Zombies, The Pit of The Green Slime, The Worm that Gnaws, The Monster that Challenged the World, Swamp Beast Horror, Deadly Nightshade, The Chlorophyll Killers, The Bloody Massacre of the Mutilated, Exo Biological Evil Unleashed, The Primeval Pawns of the Parasite, The Nightmare Run and Get to the Chopper! Will you and your team escape the terror that grows within you, or will you succumb to the unimaginable agony as you become one of the Parasitic legions?

HALLOWEEN AT PONCE CITY MARKET 2021

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 10/3/21

PONCE CITY MARKET ANNOUNCES SPOOKY HAPPENINGS AT THE COMMUNITY HUB THROUGHOUT OCTOBER

Ponce Goes Upside Down, a Carnival-Style Block Party on October 14, Will Feature Ghoulish Goodies, Raffles & More

This Halloween season, Atlanta’s iconic Ponce City Market is celebrating with haunting holiday festivities, spooky decor, ghoulish goodies and spellbinding sweet treats for the whole family. The lineup features spooky sights around every corner and scary-good fun, including:


Atlanta School of Photography will present a fun selection of photo booths where visitors can snap selfies or purchase professional shots for a suggested donation benefiting Illuminate Atlanta and Lost-n-Found Youth. Photo booths, including the Lost & Found “Hallowqueen” booth, will be created by Atlanta School of Photography photographers Sara Keith, Brook Hewitt, Julie Yarbrough and Kahiah Polidore.
Guests can directly access Ponce Goes Upside Down festivities on the third-floor trestle on foot or bike via the Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail. Drivers can enter the parking deck near Pancake Social, park on Level 2 or 3 and walk directly out to the second floor of the Central Food Hall or third floor to access the Trestle.
COVID-19 vaccination is strongly encouraged for all attendees, and in accordance with Atlanta City guidelines, Ponce City Market requires masks inside the market hall. Attendance is free and family-friendly, and all are welcome. RSVP here and follow Ponce City Market’s social channels for more information about future Ponce Goes Upside Down events.
  • RoleCall Theater’s Spooky Season Productions (October & November) – RoleCall Theater will present two chilling productions this October and November: Macbeth and Frankenstein. Retold by the three Fates of Roman mythology, Frankenstein returns to the hands of women practically for the first time since Mary Shelley completed it. Far from the groaning Hollywood monsters, ripped bodices and drafty castles of popular imagination, this production centers around the bone-deep psychological horrors of abandonment, rag and irrevocable mistakes in the making. How much can a man take, after all, before he becomes a monster?
In RoleCall’s iteration of Macbeth, the play begins when he is a brave and loyal thane to King Duncan. However, after hearing a prophecy that he will become king himself, Macbeth is overcome by ambition and greed. Encouraged by the prophecy and his scheming wife, Macbeth goes down a dark path of murder to try to seize the throne. Tickets are available here for both productions.
 
  • The Roof’s Annual 21+ Halloween Party (October 30, 8pm – midnight) – Something wicked is coming to The Roof at Ponce City Market! The Roof will transform with frightful sights, a dance party and a costume contest. Tickets to the 21+ celebration can be purchased here beginning October 1.

NETHERWORLD CELEBRATES 25 YEARS OF SCREAMS – EXTENDED TWO WEEKS!

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 9/24/21, updated 11/4/21

UPDATED 11/4

It’s not too late to get your scare on at NETHERWORLD Haunted House during its 25th Season of Screams! America’s favorite haunted house for over two decades is continuing the frightening fun for two more weekends in November. Both haunts, RISE OF THE NETHERSPAWN and RETURN TO PLANET X in 3D, will be open on Nov. 5-7 and Nov. 12-13. Very limited Timed-Entry Tickets and SpeedPasses are available for purchase and include both of NETHERWORLD’s cutting-edge attractions filled with mind-blowing special effects and animatronics, uniquely terrifying creatures, and access to the newly expanded midway area featuring nightmarish monsters, food truck-style snacks, photo ops, a foam zone, games, and more.

“We couldn’t have asked for a better 25th anniversary season!” said Ben Armstrong, NETHERWORLD Haunted House co-creator. “It has been thrilling to celebrate this milestone with so many new and old fans, and with limited ticketing this year, we wanted to keep the celebration alive by extending the season through the first two weekends in November.”

To keep the adrenaline rush alive following one’s bravery through the haunts, NETHERWORLD’s four escape room games and apocalyptic-themed laser tag arena remain open, along with the House of Creeps Monster Museum. Tickets are on a timed-entry schedule and include entrance into both haunts. It is highly recommended to purchase tickets in advance online as they are very limited and will sell out fast.

Original post 9/24/21

Haunt fans, the scariest season of the year has arrived! NETHERWORLD Haunted House officially returns for its 25th year of next-level thrills and chills. Opening this weekend, only the bravest souls will experience the unforgettable pulse-pounding horror featured in two brand-new haunts, RISE OF THE NETHERSPAWN and RETURN TO PLANET X in 3D, from co-creators Billy Messina and Ben Armstrong.

“This milestone is one that not only are we proud of, we’re also grateful to all the guests near and far who have experienced NETHERWORLD the last 25 years,” said Armstrong. “This year has us looking back and celebrating our history with some of our classic characters from years past combined with new themes featuring brand new monsters and intriguing storylines, all housed in our two massive and immersive haunts. We can’t wait to welcome everyone to the 2021 season!”

This year’s themes include:

RISE OF THE NETHERSPAWN:
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!

RETURN TO PLANET X:
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.

Recently dubbed “scariest haunted house” by Oprah Magazine for the second year in a row, NETHERWORLD has built a loyal cult-following over the past 25 years and is beloved for its Hollywood-quality special effects, cutting-edge themes, elaborate sets, and nightmare-inducing monsters. In 2018, the team planted roots in Stone Mountain on a 10+ acre property, allowing room for expansion beyond the seasonal haunts. Open year-round, NETHERWORLD offers four adrenaline-inducing Escape Room Games, a Laser Tag Arena, and a monster museum. Haunt tickets are on sale now and attendees won’t want to miss it. During Halloween season, Escape the NETHERWORLD will also operate every day and night that the haunts are open. These tickets are sold separately at www.escapethenetherworld.com.

All tickets will be timed, dated, and limited. All tickets include access to both haunts, RISE OF THE NETHERSPAWN and RETURN TO PLANET X in 3D.  Purchasing tickets online and in advance is highly recommended to guarantee entry as walk-up/box office sales are subject to availability. SpeedPasses available to expedite entry. Masks are strongly encouraged while visiting NETHERWORLD Haunted House.

FIRST-EVER FANTASTIC HALLOWEEN BUBBLES UP FUN AT WORLD OF COCA-COLA

Posted by Liz and and John Attaway, 9/17/21

New Fanta Flavors, Spooky Moments and Special Features Haunt Atlanta Attraction
All Month Long; Adults-Only Evening Event Extends the Fun After Hours

 

This October, World of Coca-Cola is inviting families and friends to take part in the attraction’s first-ever Halloween takeover. Offered all month long with special activations on Saturdays and Sundays, the eerie experience includes a scavenger hunt to find a mystery Fanta flavor, an after-hours event for adults, ghostly performances and so much more. Guests are encouraged to get in the spooky spirit by wearing their best family-friendly costumes and looking out for festive frights and fall features among World of Coke’s regular exhibits and experiences. FANTAstic Halloween is included as part of every general admission ticket in October.

Haunted Hunt for a FANTAstic New Flavor

The FANTAstic Flavor Hunt challenges guests to search for hidden QR codes throughout World of Coca-Cola, each one a clue to a mysterious new Fanta flavor hitting shelves soon. The journey concludes in Taste It! where guests can unearth the secret and sample the latest Fanta flavor before it launches in 2022.

All the Treats, None of the Tricks

No ghoul goes thirsty, as Coca-Cola Freestyle serves three limited-edition mixes: Fanta Grape Goblin, Fanta Orange Jack-O-Lantern and Fanta Strawberry Scary Skull. Even more Fanta flavors are available on the Taste It! fountains, and seasonal concoctions can be sipped at the beverage bar.

Bottling Up Frightful Concoctions

The Bottle Works exhibit has been abandoned – or has it? Fans who dare to enter may encounter playful skeletons. On weekends, the mad scientist Dr. FANTAstic transforms the bottling plant into his personal lab. The doctor is mixing up something frighteningly delicious – peek inside to get a firsthand look at the creation of Coca-Cola’s most mystical drink yet.

Surprises and Disguises to Spare

Around every corner, fans will discover spooky surprises – from beastly backdrops for freaky photos, to ghoulish tales and live dance performances by costumed characters. Inside the Scent Discovery exhibit, guests can sniff and guess seasonal aromas that recall memories from Halloweens past and set the stage for unique flavors inside Taste It!

FANTAstic Halloween After Dark

On Thursday, October 14, World of Coca-Cola will open its doors for its first-ever, adults-only event from 7-10 p.m. The event will feature a DJ spinning spook-tacular tunes, dramatic Halloween-themed entertainment and a full bar with a “FANTAstic Halloween” specialty cocktail. Food will also be available for purchase. Tickets cost $35 and include two drink tickets for wine or beer. Costumes are welcome, and face coverings are required except in spaces designated for eating and drinking. Masks that fully cover the face and weapon-like props are not permitted. Guests must be 21 years or older to attend.

Safety First

The health and safety of World of Coca-Cola’s guests and employees are top priorities, and the attraction has adjusted operations in compliance with guidelines from health and government authorities. Precautions include reduced capacity, timed ticket entry, signage to promote social distancing, mandatory face coverings for all ambassadors and guests over the age of two, and enhanced cleaning routines throughout the attraction.
