Fall 2017 Haunted Attractions

compiled by: Martin “the Clown” Barry

Fall 2017 Haunted AttractionsIt’s the MOST wonderful time of the year when the temperature begins to drop, water bottles are safe in your car, and the talented people of the haunted house industry come out to play with their new concepts and features. This year, October has a Friday the 13th, so there may be extra special opportunity to take in the mayhem. These haunted attractions put on productions that are worth the drive and the admission.

Netherworld Haunted House - Atlanta, GA
Netherworld is the undisputed king of haunted houses in the region. Each year, this juggernaut undergoes re-imagining and reconstruction to tell a new chapter in a fascinating story. The attraction features two levels and each level houses its own concept. This year, the upper level features Primal Scream with creatures of claw, tooth, and bone set free to feast on your fears. The lower level features Mr. Grendel’s Fun House of Horror, a 3D house that will add a whole new dimension to your experience. As usual, the show at Netherworld begins the moment you step out of your vehicle. Beings lurk in the lot and along the lines to shock and terrify you before your journey through the dark dimension begins. Netherworld also features a resplendent gift shop. Tickets are available online or upon arrival and they take credit and debit cards. Open the last two weekends in September, every night in October, and the first weekend in November. 

Kersey Valley Spookywoods - Archdale, NC
This massive haunt features indoor and outdoor attractions, a midway, and a gift shop. The Abomination, Urban Legend, Land of Folklore, Village of the Damned, and other features are sure to deliver the scares you seek. Recommended to buy tickets online. Bring cash if you do not. Parking is five dollars and wear sensible shoes. Check the website for dates of operation and special events.

Scarrigan Farms - Mooresville, NC
Weekends in October will see the transformation of this 170 acre farm into one of the scariest haunted trails in the region. Varying features along the trail will transport you to new dimensions of terror. Get your boots on and prepare for the thrills of this attraction. Cash only and worth the drive.
