Netherworld Haunted House, Atlanta's most popular self-guided, dark attraction, is known for its over-the-top special effects, unique make-up, elaborate costuming, skilled stunt actors and unusual themes. They have moved from its long-time location in Norcross to its new home just off Exit 9 on US Highway 78 in Stone Mountain. The massive 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, an elaborate gift shop and lots of free parking! Anticipation has been running high for haunt fans to see the new location, as Netherworld has become a serious Halloween tradition for generations of Atlanta residents. This year features two different haunts â€“ the classically terrifying The Awakened, and the more sci-fi themed Subject: Unkown. Netherworld's new location will also feature plenty of free parking, with additional free overflow parking just across the street, courtesy of SpaceMax Storage.
