HAUNTED HOUSE ATLANTA: HOUSES FOR THE BRAVE
Note: Although we do have some not-so scary haunted houses in Atlanta listed, most of these are for older teens or adults.
FEAR THE WOODS
3565 Hwy 155 N | Stockbridge, Ga. | 770-954-9356
The Woods come alive at one of the top-rated, actor-based haunted attractions in Georgia, Fear the Woods.
When the sun sets over Yule Forest’s pumpkin patch, blood hungry creatures come to feast on the screams of those that come to the farm after dark!
This haunt consists of three different features: The Haunted House, a place where all your psychological fears are revealed; the Terror Transport and Haunted Trail, where you must survive the woods, a mineshaft, and the Skinner family; and Infestation, an outdoor video game experience combined with a real-life interactive walk.
The actors here are off-the-charts and they go out of their way to scare you. With that said, you can purchase “Monster Protection.” This is the perfect option if you have children under the age of 13 coming in, or a friend that needs extra convincing to come because they are too scared. Upon arrival, you’ll receive “Monster Protection,” and the actors will see it and not purposefully scare those wearing it.
Fear the Woods is recommended for those 13 and up.
If the haunt is too much, Yule Forest has family friendly fun with the sun is out!
NETHERWORLD HAUNTED HOUSE
1313 Netherworld Way | Stone Mountain | 404-608-2484
Netherworld Haunted House is one of the best haunted houses…ever! It has been consistently rated one of the best haunted houses in the United States by Hauntworld magazine since 2009. Netherworld is a walk-through dark attraction filled with amazing actors, special effects, and monsters.
The sets are professionally done, and the actors are very good. I met The Collector once under bright lights and he was creepy — I can’t image meeting him in a dark room! You’ve got to check out the photos on their website — truly frightening. They also offer a creepy Escape Room experience here.
Two terrifying themes can be found here in 2022 — The Undying Horror and Parasitic.
The Undying Horror is a great choice…if you’re ready for nightmares! Concealed in the chaos of a deadly storm, an ancient monstrosity launches massive tentacles to the surface world corrupting everything they touch! Can a battle-worn group of survivors fight their way past the legions of Wraiths and Netherspawn to defeat this nightmarish creature, or will the world fall to The Undying Horror?
For Parasitic, the story is about a bizarre, parasitic, plant-based life form filled with the twisted power of Planet X. It has grown on a discarded husk of The Harvestman, and springs to unnatural life in the top-secret facility known as the BOX. After infecting the staff with mind-controlling spores and unleashing an army of carnivorous plant and fungus-based creatures, it seeks vengeance on its foolish captors before attempting to escape into the world of men!
You’ll also find escape rooms, laser tag, and a monster museum here.
Netherworld is recommended for adults and teens, but kids can come as long as a parent is with them. There is no special child admission price. Minimum age is 5.
