Netherworld offering sneak peek this weekend

Ghouls and gals looking for a fright before Halloween will get their chance this weekend. 

Netherworld Haunted House will be open a week earlier at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, offering visitors a sneak peak into its latest haunted house theme “The Awakened” and a new sci-fi themed haunt, “Subject: UNKNOWN.” 

This will be the first scare on the haunted house’s new 10-acre space on U.S. 78 in Stone Mountain. The attraction boasts larger haunts, escape games, party rooms and a monster museum, known as the “House of Creeps.”

Haunt fans will make their way through the cursed town of Whyshburg in “The Awakened,” as they encounter rotted, mummified corpses each bearing a hideous eye on their forehead. Creep lovers searching for an equally frightening time will be subjected to extraterrestrial life forms at “Subject: UNKNOWN.” There, freight enthusiasts will work to avoid hideous alien autopsies, ghastly flesh-eating monsters and other horrifying creatures while in “The BOX.” 

After the sneak peak weekend, Netherworld will be open starting Oct. 5 from 7 p.m. to midnight Fridays and Saturdays until Oct. 27. It will be open Sundays through Thursdays from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. starting Oct. 7 and ending Nov. 4.

Fans can purchase tickets to “The Awakened” for $23 Sunday through Thursday and $25 on Fridays and Saturdays. Tickets for both attractions are $28 Sunday through Thursday and $35 Fridays and Saturdays.

Patrons can also purchase a Speedpass to skip the lines for $55.
