Get ready, Atlanta, because Netherworld Haunted House is back for its spine-tingling 27th season of screams! The iron-bound doors will swing open for the opening weekend on Sept. 22-23, revealing its array of unspeakable horror attractions, including haunted experiences, escape rooms, and a spooktacular monster museum filled with cool movie props, displays, photo ops, and memorabilia.

Located in Stone Mountain, this legendary walk-through haunted house continues to redefine fear with its intricate sets, live actors, mind-blowing special effects, and spine-chilling monsters. This year, brace yourself for two new haunting experiences that will leave you trembling in fear: Primordial and Cryptid Chaos.

In Primordial, the Undying Horror saga continues as elemental beings from the Netherworld’s gateway emerge into our universe, fueled by water, wind, Earth, and fire. Their mission? To annihilate all the Netherspawn that came before them!

Meanwhile, in Cryptid Chaos, the Boogeyman has returned to unleash living nightmares, draining dark energy from imprisoned Cryptid Creatures. But these creatures won’t go down without a fight; they’re prepared to battle the Boogeyman to secure their place at the top of the food chain.

“This year’s haunts are totally overloaded with an insane amount of intense new experiences. Each season we always try to make the haunts even more over the top, but this year is just crazy!” said co-founder Ben Armstrong. “We’re excited for our fans and newcomers to experience the WOW moments that both of our new haunts are guaranteed to bring!”

Once you’ve survived the horrors of your choosing, the adventure is far from over. The Halloween festival-styled Midway awaits, where you’ll encounter even more wandering creatures, gigantic jack-o-lanterns, photo ops, and carnival-style treats.

So put on your bravest face and prepare for a night filled with screams, shocks, and Halloween delights!
