    DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - Terrifying news: Netherworld Haunted House has announced its 2018 season will begin Oct.  5, according to a Facebook post.

    This will be Netherworld’s first season in its brand new 70,000-square-foot facility in Stone Mountain. The spooky attraction moved at the end of the 2017 season, adding escape rooms and a “monster museum” in addition to their main haunted house facilities.

    This year’s haunted house theme is “The Awakened,” featuring “rotted mummified corpses, each with a single hideous eye in their forehead,” according to Netherworld’s website. Guests will encounter these horrifying creatures inside the Colber Mansion, passing through mausoleums and a coffin labyrinth to escape their wrath.

    Netherworld will be open from 7 p.m. to Midnight Fridays and Saturdays from Oct. 5 to Oct. 27. It will be open from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays Oct. 7 to Nov. 4.
