Netherworld Haunted House is opening a full week earlier than originally announced, this Friday, September 28 and Saturday, September 29 for a special “sneak peek,” according to a press release Thursday.
Now in its 22nd season, Netherworld moved after the Holloween season last year from its long-time location in Norcross to its new home just off Exit 9 on US Highway 78 in Stone Mountain.
The complex sits on almost 10 acres and will feature much larger haunts, escape games, party rooms, a monster museum called the “House of Creeps,” an expanded midway, gift shop and lots of free parking.
“We knew that creating a new Netherworld from the ground up was going to be a colossal task, so to give us as much time as possible, we decided long ago that this would be the first time in our history that chainsaws would not begin to roar at the haunt in September,” Ben Armstrong, Netherworld’s co-owner, said in the release.
“Not being open that early did not sit well with any of us though, so over the past few months, our amazing build crew and an army of contractors have been working some serious overtime. It’s because of their tireless efforts that we are able to continue our tradition of haunting in September.”
This year features The Awakened and the Subject: Unknown haunts.
Rotted mummified corpses each with a single hideous eye in its forehead have emerged from the depths below to destroy everything in their path. Explore the cursed town of Whyshburg, make your way through its ancient crumbling cemetery, enter the haunted Colber Mansion, and then descend to the forbidden city deep below the mountain to confront the ancient horror that created The Awakened – If You Dare!
Dissection of an extraterrestrial life form has released a rapidly mutating virus into the facility, The BOX. Infected subjects have shown rapid anomalous tissue growth, near indestructibility and extreme aggression. Additionally, many of the other experiments have escaped their cells and are extremely dangerous. After receiving your briefing, you must enter The BOX and successfully complete your assignment before the rampaging horrors of the UNKNOWN subject you to a fate worse than death!
Situated at 2076 West Park Place Blvd., Netherworld is open for its sneak peek 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Click here for more information.
