Atlanta’s Iconic NETHERWORLD Haunted House Is Now Open

Published

on

Haunt season is officially here and NETHERWORLD Haunted House opened its doors on Friday, Sept. 22 and Saturday, Sept. 23 with two new spine-chilling experiences.

This year, NETHERWORLD has expanded. There is a festival-styled Midway, a monster museum featuring movie props and a collection of NETHERWORLD memorabilia as well as five escape room games for many nights filled with frights.

NETHERWORLD is also introducing the PRIMORDIAL and CRYPTID CHAOS-themed haunted houses. 

In PRIMORDIAL, elemental beings of water, wind, earth and fire, fueled by the energy of the gateway to the NETHERWORLD, are on a mission to destroy.

In CRYPTID CHAOS, Cryptid Creatures and nightmarish urban legends battle it out with the Boogeyman for a spot at the top of the horror food chain. Those brave enough to enter will encounter special effects, advanced animatronics, live actors, intricate sets and much more.

“Each haunt features a continuation of past tales, with new and returning characters–the storytelling and incredible details within our haunts is something that sets us apart from the rest,” said NETHERWORLD Co- Creator Ben Armstrong

“We love building on our past themes and thrilling guests with new monsters, surprises and features, in addition to the fan-favorite elements that they have come to know, love and expect from NETHERWORLD,” he added.

Those who dare to enter both haunts will continue to NETHERWORLD’s Halloween-drenched Midway. The Midway features photo ops, a skeletal dragon and horror-themed games, complemented by plenty of monsters and creatures roaming about. 

Visitors can enjoy food and beverage options, including mini donuts, hot dogs, nachos, and gourmet popcorn. Fudge, pretzels and bratwurst have also been added to the menu. 

The mad scientist from Dr. Octane’s Bizarre Beverages is also back serving up colorful non-alcoholic fizzy, bubbling concoctions.

“Each year we aim to give both first-time haunt goers and loyal NETHERWORLD fans a new over-the-top experience,” said NETHERWORLD Co-Creator Billy Messina

“Each element we have to offer this season, from the haunts and museum to the Midway and our new Escape Game (Alien Terror), create an immersive experience for anyone who loves this season as much as we do!”

NETHERWORLD Haunted House is located at 1313 Netherworld Way, Stone Mountain, GA 30087. The experience is open from now until Nov. 11. Visit fearworld.com to purchase tickets and find available dates.

Fernbank Museum Rings in 2024 with an Eight-Legged Invasion

Published

on

Guests using one of Fernbank Museum's interactive displays

This winter, Fernbank Museum invites guests to come eye-to-eye with the hunting, burrowing and weaving world of spiders in the new special exhibit, “Spiders— From Fear to Fascination.”

Opening Feb. 10, 2024, and featuring over 250 live and preserved spider specimens, this exhibit will leave audiences with a new fascination for arachnids.

Guests will be able to explore an exhibition of spiders in all shapes and sizes—from the intimidatingly venomous Black Window to the famously large Huntsman—through a variety of curated displays.

Visitors will be able to virtually journey through hundreds of scattering spiders along a glowing forest floor through the use of augmented reality.

In addition to encountering live spiders, dioramas with taxidermy spiders, panels featuring real preservations and interactive components, guests will have the opportunity to use the free “Spiders Augmented Reality” app.

Some of the spiders featured in the app include the Wolf Spider, Trapdoor Spider, Desert Blonde Tarantula and more.

“Spiders evoke a combination of curiosity and horror, fear and fascination alike. The ‘Spiders — From Fear to Fascination’ exhibit is extraordinary as it makes spiders accessible and appealing, while still presenting the most up-to-date research and understanding of their biology,” said Linda S. Rayor, Cornell University‘s scientific consultant, exhibit manager of live animals and President of the American Arachnological Society.

Developed by the Australian Museum, “Spiders — From Fear to Fascination” features seven themed sections audiences can use to build their knowledge of the arachnid animal classification.

These themes include the spider family tree, diet and hunting, diversity of spiders from across the globe, spiders’ life cycles, their senses and silk production and weaving.

This exhibit will be included with General Admission at Fernbank from Feb. 10 through May 5, 2024. For more information, please visit fernbankmuseum.org/Spiders.

“Spiders — From Fear to Fascination” was created by the Australian Museum and sponsored locally in part by the Frances Wood Wilson Foundation, Inc.

Interested parties can purchase their tickets here today.
