NETHERWORLD HAUNTED HOUSE BRINGS HALLOWEEN NOSTALGIA BACK THIS FALL WITH NEW ATTRACTION

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 8/8/20

Revel in Retro Horror at One of the Top Haunted Houses in the Country

Good news fright fans – the team behind the world-famous NETHERWORLD Haunted House is thrilled to introduce this year’s main theme, HALLOWEEN NIGHTMARES. Haunt guests will soon be able to enjoy an over-the-top adventure, loaded with amazing new experiences they won’t soon forget. 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!

“We’re working nonstop on the creation of elaborate sets, giant monsters, and mind-numbing effects just as we have every year since our inaugural season in 1997,” said Billy Messina, NETHERWORLD Haunted House co-creator. “Our 2020 main attraction will be a terrifying yet nostalgic romp down Halloween Lane, and seriously, during this time when nothing seems normal thanks to COVID-19, who can’t use a little spine-tingling fun these days?”

This Halloween, the bat-like creatures will resurface once again, disguised as distorted costumed revelers bent on bringing destruction to the cursed town of Whyshburg and only the Children of Autumn, a group of mysterious Trick or Treaters with strange powers stand in their way. 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 your melted mind can handle! Stay tuned for details on official opening dates, ticket prices and more by visiting www.fearworld.com.

“Though we are beyond excited to announce the theme of our 2020 haunt, we know that COVID-19 will present many obstacles this fall,” said Billy Messina, NETHERWORLD Haunted House co-creator. “We want to ensure that we are taking the necessary precautions, while at the same time presenting a fun and entertaining experience. We have developed several plans regarding ticketing, queue lines, disinfecting, and more, and are working on stringent behind the scenes protocols. So much can and will change in the coming months, so we feel it’s premature to announce our definitive COVID-19 safety plan. Rest assured; we are constantly assessing and evolving our plans and protocols as more information and resources become available.”

Those seeking a little extra adventure can still get their fix while anxiously awaiting this season’s haunts through NETHERWORLD’s recently reopened escape rooms and outdoor laser tag arena. Both NETHERWORLD Laser Adventure and Escape the NETHERWORLD are being vigilant in light of COVID-19. Guests will find various safety measures in place that protect both them and employees outlined on NETHERWORLD’s respective websites.

NETHERWORLD HAUNTED HOUSE IS TAKING OVER STONE MOUNTAIN AT 1313 NETHERWORLD WAY

Posted by Liz and John, 7/19/20

Same Location, New Street Name!

This season at NETHERWORLD Haunted House means new monsters, new haunt themes, and a creepy new address. Incredible effects and sets, fan-favorite monsters and a new crop of creatures will be lurking for you at the same amazing location in Stone Mountain, but with a brand-new street name…Netherworld Way. While the street name may be changing, the location remains the same, as does all the fun and excitement haunt fans have come to expect from NETHERWORLD.

“Since planting roots here in Stone Mountain three years ago, those roots have only grown stronger, but having this new address really cements this place as home,” said Billy Messina, NETHERWORLD Haunted House co-creator. “It’s been a crazy year and the news of the new street name is truly a positive light and a hopeful sign of things to come. I’m beyond thrilled that our guests will be plugging 1313 Netherworld Way into their phones when we open the doors for our 24th year of fear.”

Over the next few months, guests can expect Google Maps and other online listings to be updated accordingly. However, for the time being, GPS services will recognize the old address (2076 W Park Pl. Blvd, Stone Mountain, GA 30087). Additionally, government services such as emergency and postal already recognize the new street name.

To stay up to date on the latest NETHERWORLD Haunted House news, visit www.fearworld.com. Fans don’t have to wait until fall for all the fun to start! Escape the NETHERWORLD escape rooms and outdoor laser tag, Laser Adventure Battle Arena, have both reopened to the public with precautions in place in light of COVID-19.

NETHERWORLD HAUNTED HOUSE RETURNS FOR SPECIAL VALENTINES DAY EVENT 2020

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 1/19/20

For One Night Only on Saturday, February 15, NIGHT OF THE GORGON
Reopens for Final Time to Bring You Scream in the Dark

Make your Valentine’s Day one to remember this year with tickets to NETHERWORLD Haunted House’s Scream in the Dark on Saturday, February 15. Housed inside of last year’s feature haunt NIGHT OF THE GORGON, Scream in the Dark will be crawling with classic horror and topped off with Hollywood-level special effects and nightmare-inducing creatures lurking in almost total darkness! Take the average Valentine’s Day gifts, roses and chocolates, to the next level with this one-of-a-kind event where you and your loved ones will embark on a journey through the haunt with only a small battery powered candle to help guide your way. This feeble light will be the only thing standing between you and swarms of monsters lurking in the gloom delivering the shocks and surprises you expect from a journey through NETHERWORLD. Even if you’ve already ventured through NIGHT OF THE GORGON earlier this year, the sharply reduced lighting and limited timed admission create a very different experience that many find to be even more terrifying than the October seasonal show.

“Once Halloween is over, we love brainstorming on how to add new twists to the attractions for our Christmas and Valentine’s shows. Taking away almost all external illumination and supplying a small candle really alters the experience by making the guests more vulnerable yet empowering them with a source of light. But sometimes the one holding the candle attracts even more monsters so watch out!” said Ben Armstrong, NETHERWORLD Haunted House Co-Creator. “This will be the last time for guests to walk through NIGHT OF THE GORGON before we radically redesign the attraction for the 2020 season so come out and Scream in the Dark with us.”

This can’t-miss event will be limited capacity, so be sure to purchase your tickets ahead of time. Tickets are on sale now at www.fearworld.com and are $25.95. A limited number of SpeedPasses will be available for $39.95. In order to allow guests to make the most of their evening, tickets will be sold in the following half hour time slots: 6:30pm, 7:00pm, 7:30pm, 8:00pm, 8:30pm, and 9:00pm.

“We always strive to improve the customer experience in any way we can,” said NETHERWORLD Haunted House Co-Creator Billy Messina. “We’ll certainly have plenty of fun on tap at NETHERWORLD, but if dinner plans or other entertainment options are also on the night’s agenda, offering timed tickets to Scream in the Dark will no doubt help make planning the evening’s festivities a bit easier.”

If being plunged into darkness isn’t your idea of a romantic time, perhaps the adrenaline rush of working together to beat the clock in one of NETHERWORLD’s exciting Escape Rooms is more your speed. Try your luck at one of four Escape Rooms including Tiki Island: Attack of the Shark God, Sasquatch: Bigfoot’s Revenge, Nosferatu: Van Helsing’s Secret or Haunted: Curse of the Night Hag. Learn more at www.EscapetheNetherworld.com. In addition to Scream in the Dark and the Escape Rooms, NETHERWORLD will also unveil an exciting new One-Night-Only Laser Adventure in the COLD BLOODED attraction on the 15th. And of course, their freaky fun museum of monsters, expansive Gift Shop and carnival-like midway will also be open.

NETHERWORLD IS BACK WITH TWO SPECIAL EVENTS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 12/1/19
A Haunted Holiday Returns December 14 Featuring a Scary Full Production Haunted House Fueled with Yuletide Horror + A Lights on Tour of NETHERWORLD Debuts December 28th – The Behind-the-Scenes Event Fans Have Been Asking For!

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!
