5389 N Main St, Acworth, GA 30101
This haunted house is perfectly named – Folklore really focuses on story.  At their two haunted attractions, you can choose between Winter’s Estate, an immersive haunted mystery, or Overload: Final Destination, a one of a kind haunted house experience that puts you in the middle of a crashing alien spaceship.  Before or after you’re done avoiding interactions with little green men, stop by the 1885 Grill in Acworth for some Southern favorites in an elevated setting (although, not as elevated as a spaceship).

A character from Netherworld Haunted House and Chicken and Waffles from Metro Cafe Diner in Stone Mountain, GA. | Instagram/metrocafedineratl


1313 Netherworld Way, Stone Mountain, GA 30087
Perhaps the most well known of the Atlanta haunted houses, Netherworld operates year round in Stone Mountain, with Escape Room experiences to go along with their haunts.  This year, their haunted attractions have two themes – Primordial, featuring monsters inspired by the elements, and Cryptid Chaos, focused on mutant monsters like The Chupacabra, Mothman and more.  Speaking of monstrous, Metro Cafe Diner in Stone Mountain has a monstrous menu, with all of your diner favorites.  They’re also open until midnight on weekends, so you’ll be able to work up an appetite even if you head to the haunt a little later.

A character from Nightmare's Gate and cajun food from Gumbeaux's, A Cajun Cafe in Douglasville, GA.

Nightmare’s Gate

3844 Longview Dr, Douglasville, GA 30135
Another haunted house location with multiple experiences, Nightmare’s Gate features two attractions this year – Terror Falls and The Haunting of Longview Estate.  In the Hauntings of Longview Estate, you’ll find yourself in a horrifying, opulent estate with multiple ghouls surprising you at each turn.  Meanwhile, with Terror Falls, you’ll head to a haunted swamp where evil lurks.  Once you’ve worked up an appetite in the swamp, do what the cajuns do – eat cajun food!  Head to Gumbeaux’s, A Cajun Cafe in downtown Douglasville for delicious etouffee, po boys, gumbo and more.  

A character from Paranoia haunted house and burgers + a long drink from Community Burger in Canton, GA.


2075 Marietta Hwy, Canton, GA 30114
This year’s attraction at Paranoia is titled “Necrosis” and based on some of the characters we’ve seen, it looks like it will be medically focused (fans can find out when it opens in Canton on September 29).  Before or after you’ve had your”check-up” at Necrosis, dig in on some refreshing Finnish Long Drinks and delicious burgers at Community Burger – we promise the meat is fresh!

Village, The

6905 Virlyn B. Smith Road, Fairburn, GA
The folks at 13 Stories have partnered with the Georgia Renaissance Festival fairgrounds to create The Village, a unique attraction that incorporates a carnival-style midway with games, food, drinks and tunes.  After you’ve spent time in the creepy carnival, head through the outdoor haunt, all through the festival grounds.  While the food on-site looks like delicious carnival food, some folks may want something more substantial.  That’s why we recommend the Farmhouse in Serenbe – a farm to table experience with some of the best chef-driven, fresh dishes in Georgia.

A character from Trail of Terror and a milkshake from Over The Top Burger in Buford, GA. | Instagram/overthetopburgerbar

Trail of Terror

3760 Friendship Cir, Buford, GA 30519
Walk the Trail of Terror if you dare, but expect to see decapitated corpses and deranged clowns running through the self-described “blood drenched carnival in the Hell County backwoods.”  With all of that walking, you’ll need to build up some energy.  Start with Over the Top Burger bar for an insane milkshake that might look blood drenched but tastes delicious, or a burger you can customize with all the fixings you love.
