Netherworld reopens escape rooms, laser tag arena

STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. — Good news haunt fans, Netherworld is reopening.

The company behind the famous haunted house added escape games and a laser tag arena to its Stone Mountain location following its move from Norcross a couple of years ago. Those closed during the pandemic, but have recently reopened to the public.

“We are so excited to be reopening our doors to the public,” said Netherworld’s Billy Messina. “While this time has given us plenty of opportunity to prep for this season’s new haunts, we have missed hosting our community at our year-round attractions. As always, the safety of our guests, staff and community is of the utmost importance to us, so we are taking all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of everyone’s health while still having fun.”

For the escape games, all outings are now private and are offered on Fridays and Saturdays. All games must be booked online at least two hours prior to the scheduled start time. The company requests the use of face masks or face shields by guests while in the public areas of Escape the Netherworld. This includes the lobby, public bathrooms, outdoor picnic tables and benches. Hand sanitizer is available at several locations throughout the property and disposable gloves are available by request.

For the health and safety of staff and guests, employees will be wearing face coverings while interacting directly with each other and their groups. Staff members will have health screenings regularly which may include temperature checks and interviews about health and possible exposure and will wash their hands regularly throughout their shift. Netherworld has added extra measures to its cleaning regimen which include disinfecting props, doorknobs, and touch surfaces with high grade disinfectants. Each room is cleaned before and after each game.

Netherworld hopes to open its haunted houses later this year and is encouraging everyone, monsters included, to wear masks.
