Netherworld 2014

     Fifteen of us avid haunt fans gathered together to partake in the wonders of Netherworld Haunted House in Norcross, Georgia this year.  As you may expect, we were not disappointed, The Netherspawn were in full effect and attacked with abandon.  The path changes created a scenario where even those who thought they were familiar with this attraction were frequently caught off guard.
     The two attractions this year are Season of the Witch and Spliced.  Season of the Witch, their primary attraction, seemed to have a limited amount to do with the namesake characters once you passed through the first few spaces.  The witches which were encountered were either outside of the haunt or within the first few rooms, and their characters were entrancingly detailed.  The remained of this attraction was highly detailed and frequently transports the guests imagination into the fantastical realm, as is intended.  Every night of the season visitors to the parking lot of Netherworld can discover just how terrifying the production can be simply by observing the continuous flow of running and screaming visitors exiting the upstairs attraction.
     The secondary attraction, Spliced, is not to be outdone by it's "big brother" upstairs.  Though this event is shorter in distance and time for completion, it does have it's own special treats for the guests.  There is one space within this area which includes a remarkably steep angle, but that is the only warning you are getting from us.  It has been said that this attraction was remodeled this year to add space, and when we found the space which had been created we were extremely impressed with the concept and how well this additional space was used.
     We know that it seems a bit redundant for us to review Netherworld year after year, but they are highly enjoyable and local to us.  We couldn't imagine beginning, or wrapping up, haunt season without visits to our favorite location.  Netherworld consistently rates at five severed heads for us, setting the standard for all other attractions to live up to.
