Hair-raising adventures at Netherworld

It’s that time of year when kids and adults look forward to frightful activities – and the potential for sweet rewards. Across the state, there are many ways to get into the mood and celebrate the spooky season, starting with The Haunted Georgia Halloween Road Trip, the ultimate supernatural tour from Atlanta to Jekyll Island created by Explore Georgia, the Department of Economic Development’s tourism division.

While you’re in the Atlanta area, check out the Netherworld Haunted House, which is celebrating its 25th Season of Screams.

In downtown ATL, the iconic Fox Theatre is hosting hour-long guided Ghost Tours that include hair-raising accounts of supernatural presence in the city’s favorite theater.

Just down the street, the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation is also promising paranormal excitement with its Legends & Lore Tour at historic Rhodes Hall. The “Castle on Peachtree St. is allegedly one of Atlanta’s most haunted buildings.

Heading west on I-20, Six Flags Over Georgia – the thrill capital of the South – is unleashing terror with FrightFest. The event includes 16 haunted attractions, 12 pulse-pounding roller coasters, more than 200 zombies and a haunted house.

Great Wolf Lodge Georgia in LaGrange is celebrating the spooky season with Howl-o-Ween activities for kids that include the Trick-or-Treat Trail, the Thrill of Howl-o-Ween Yoga Tails, Monster Bash Dance Party and Critter Cartoons art class, among others.

These are merely a few of the spooktacular events taking place from Dalton to downtown Savannah, and from Thomasville to Toccoa. With the monster mash of experiences across the state, there are plenty of ways to make your spine tingle and your heart race. Happy haunting!
