1998 – Year Two of NETHERWORLD Haunted House

In 1998 NETHERWORLD moved to Norcross GA to the Georgia Antique Center. The crew had planned to build 2 haunts that year, a traditional supernatural themed one and a science fiction based attraction called Vault 13. The space was bigger than the previous location in Kennesaw but still not large enough for two haunts, so the theme changed halfway through without an intervening queue line. The owners made contact with the role playing game company White Wolf and after some crazy brainstorming it was decided that NETHERWORLD would create a Haunted House based on the popular VAMPIRE THE MASQUERADE game as the primary attraction.

Two other firsts for NETHERWORLD happened that year as well. Doug Bradley – The actor portraying Pin Head in the Hellraiser movies visited the haunt and greeted guests and signed autographs for an evening. Also after vowing never to use chainsaws we cranked one up and haven’t put it down since! When the season ended NETHERWORLD had been successful once more, and the haunts were packed away into tractor trailers until a new home could be found.

Join us every week as we present a look into the twenty year History of NETHERWORLD Haunted House!

1998 Nos vampirethumb

Trapped in a war between Vampire Clans, the Colber House is chosen for the haven, a place where the shroud is thin, a place often used as a door between worlds. Allies are gathered, Redcaps and Gargoyles serve the mage, and a War Ghoul is created in the catacombs beneath the house. Baron Samidi is hired to provide an army of Zombies, and the Sabbat Warparties arrive. For protection against attack, powerful magical wards are erected to repel the Camarilla Vampires and the Lupines often drawn to the place…

Own the Original NETHERWORLD Tee Shirt!

This is the first ever Netherworld Haunted House T-Shirt design. Back in 1997, we screen-printed about 20 of these in our basement and gave them away to our core crew. They were crudely printed on whatever color shirts we could find in the close-out bins but we were pretty proud of them. We’ve created many shirts since, but for some reason this one was never actually sold to the public so we think it’s only fitting to finally do so in this, our 20th Season of Screams. Printed on high quality Next Level T’s, this relaunch comes in much more fashionable colors and is much (much) more comfortable than the original incarnation from back before the turn of the century.

We have no plans to offer this shirt for sale in our gift shop so if you dig it, get yours now at https://www.teeblaster.com/netherworld because they’ll only be available until May 31st.

1997 – Year One of NETHERWORLD Haunted House

1997 – Year One of NETHERWORLD Haunted House

NETHERWORLD Haunted House began in 1997 as the creation of a dedicated team of artists and craftsmen with extensive backgrounds in film and television production. Some of the founders were also experienced Haunted House designers having worked for Chambers of Terror, a local haunt in Atlanta, and the national haunted house franchise, Silo X. At the time, most Haunts were based on disconnected scenes from popular horror movies, but the focus of NETHERWORLD was to create an original story and characters that could be found nowhere else. While deeply themed, highly detailed Haunted Houses are now more the norm than the exception, it was not the case twenty years ago. After creating a preview Haunted House at Dragon Con, the first NETHERWORLD was built in Kennesaw, Georgia in little more than a month. When the season ended NETHERWORLD had survived and flourished. The attraction was packed up in U-Haul trucks and taken to the second floor of an old warehouse and scattered into basements and garages until it would resurface once more in 1998!

NETHERWORLD Haunted House: The Colber Mansion

50 years ago, a madman named Maxmillian Colber opened a doorway to another world and looked upon The Place Where Monsters Dwell, A Realm of Yawning Graves, The World of the Dead.
In seconds, his foolish experiments unleashed lost souls thirsting for vengeance and nameless horrors hungry for the flesh of the living! And feed they did.
Tonight, YOU must travel to the depths of the Colber House, before the door to the Netherworld opens…FOREVER!
