1. NETHERWORLD: This is the last year Netherworld will be in Norcross. Next year, it will open it’s doors at a new location in Stone Mountain. Voted one of America’s best haunts, if you haven’t been there it’s time to go. http://fearworld.com/wordpress/tickets/
2.NIGHTMARES GATE: Nightmare’s Gate is a great place for a scare or two! We’ve been big fans of Nightmares Gate for several years and every year it gets better and better. Located in Douglasville, its just a few minutes away from Six Flags.
3. PARANOIA HAUNTED HOUSE: We reviewed Paranoia last year when we did our limited release print magazine. The word is out and Paranoia haunted house is quickly becoming a favorite among haunt enthusiasts. Atlanta Haunt Review said it’s the “Most Anticipated Haunted Attraction of 2017”. Located in Canton,this haunt will definitely give you goosebumps.
4. CONTAINMENT HAUNTED HOUSE: Although we haven’t had a chance to visit Containment yet, we’ve hard some great things about them. Voted #4 among Atlanta’s best haunts, Containment haunted house is getting a lot of positive feedback. ‘Space Gypsies’ reviewed them last year and said “They maintain a solid theme through out. The makeup, costumes, and effects are outstanding. The actors do a great job of building suspense and working with the audience to raise the stakes.” Rest assured, we’re looking forward to our “Contaiment” experience.
13 STORIES: This haunted house is a staple in Atlanta. Over the years they have scared tens of thousands of visitors that have dared to enter the building. This year according to their website, 13 Stories has undergone the largest and most expensive one year transformation in haunted attraction history. From a 4000 square foot indoor haunt to a 54,000 mega location with Hollywood quality scene detail and design. Located in Newnan, they’re open and waiting for you!
HOUSE ON HORROR HILL: Run by the local Jaycees in Roswell,Ga., House On Horror Hill is a great local haunt. I go every year, and although they don’t have fancy animatronics, the staff pour their blood, sweat and tears into every show. Georgia’s longest running haunted house returns in October 2017 for their 36th year. Open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday through Halloween. http://www.houseonhorrorhill.com/tickets.html
ZOMBIE FARMS: Although Zombie Farms is not in Atlanta, it’s only a short drive from Lawrenceville North and because of it’s popularity, we wanted to include it in our list. Here’s some details.The Dark Trail is approximately 3/4 of a mile walk in the woods, presented by Zombie Farms, select weekends in October on Friday and Saturday nights. Before starting on the trail, you will enjoy a unique experience found only at ZF – an old-fashioned storyteller. Nothing digital. Just a man telling scary stories around a campfire. When is that last time you did that? Then you head out on the trail. You will traverse a marked path that is full of scary characters, zombies, swamp fog, strobe lights, strange noises and dark imagery. The whole experience takes about 30-40 minutes. http://www.zombiefarms.com/tickets/
