NETHERWORLD Begins the 20th Season Of Screams At The DRAGONCON Parade!


The History of NETHERWORLD Haunted House

Year 16 2012 Banshee and The Hive – In Banshee, The energy expended to stop the Blood Night allowed the evil sunken city of YS to rise once more, unleashing a plague of Banshees, the harbingers of death! In the HIVE a vast bomb shelter sealed since the cold war cracks open releasing an army of Insect /Human hybrid intent on world domination!


Banshee – Its Scream Means Death!

The ancient evil city of Ys has risen from the ocean off the coast of Ireland bringing with it a plague of Banshees! These foul eyeless winged monstrosities feed on the dark energy of dying humans, seeking battlefields and natural disasters where life hangs in the balance. When there is no death and war they create their own by releasing mind shattering howls that summon evil from the NETHERWORLD! Thus the wail of the Banshee has always meant death to those who hear it, as it rips apart the wall between worlds and releases monstrous Fomorian warriors and other fell Celtic beasts to plunder and destroy! Drawn by the flickering pumpkins and falling leaves of the autumn season, the Banshees circle ever nearer, destined to create the most terrifying Halloween the world has even seen!

During the height of the Cold War in 1962 Robert Wellington-Hughes, a filthy rich genetics researcher, sealed up his staff and followers in an underground bunker called the HIVE. Eager to create a utopian society and a radiation survival vaccine based on insect DNA he disappeared beneath the earth for almost fifty years. Now we have discovered his horrifying plot to mutate all mankind into insect based life forms and to destroy all who dare resist him! You and you team must descend into the HIVE and discover the awful truth!

Voted The #1 Haunted House in America
– Hauntworld Magazine

The detailed sets make other haunted houses look like elementary school Halloween parties. Add the insane robotics and sheer size of this place, and you’ve got a haunted house that will make you think you’ve died and gone to hell.
– MTV Clutch

Named one of the nation’s “Spookiest Haunts” by ABC’s Good Morning America
Recognized in USA Today as the #1 Haunted House in America
Walking through Netherworld Haunted House is like stepping into a horror movie.

Netherworld remains, quite possibly, the most intense haunted attraction… It is absolutely the most original… Netherworld has a very distinct bulldozer of a personality that makes it stand severed head and shoulders above the rest. You’ll never EVER mistake Netherworld for another haunt.
It is proudly and steadfastly its own thing.

By far the best haunted house we’ve ever been to
– Jezebel Magazine

You’ll never find a haunted house that has more passion for scaring people, certainly not anywhere in the Atlanta area…Netherworld isn’t just a haunted house; it’s an experience. Bring all of your favorite people with you, and get ready to make some memories that you’ll never forget”.


History of The Haunt – NETHERWORLD Haunted House Year 13 – 2009

Blood Night Web

History of NETHERWORLD Year 13 2009 – Blood Night and Zombie Rampage – In Blood Night the vampire lord Ghoulich devised a plan to black out the Sun so that vampires and creatures of the NETHERWORLD could ravage the earth without the fear of daylight. In Zombie Rampage, special chemicals developed to help soldiers fight better and to heal wounds get added to a popular energy drink, and when spilled into a local graveyard cause a…you guessed it… zombie rampage!

Goulich the Foul once more heard the whispers from the abyss. They would send Goulich’s Blood Knights; his most powerful undead warriors to collect heads from the 13 clans of earth bound fiends. Once these 13 skulls were assembled, and the words were spoken the world would enter into the Blood Night, a time of chaos when the dead would rise and the Old Ones would walk the earth once more. Then at last mankind would be little more than terrified helpless food.

Zombie-Rampage-Graphic (1)

This cutting edge “extreme” beverage is taking the market by storm! Created by Necrotech Labs, this is the first product in the food industry designed by a pioneering bioweapons defense contractor! Using chemicals developed to make our soldiers fight harder and longer, it’s no wonder ZOMBIE RAMPAGE can help you study for that test or drive 18 hours in a row during spring break!

Although ZOMBIE RAMPAGE is still awaiting FDA approval, we can now offer this tasty and powerful elixir on a limited basis to specialized markets through this excusive offer!
