Walking through Netherworld Haunted House is like stepping into a horror movie.

Netherworld remains, quite possibly, the most intense haunted attraction… It is absolutely the most original… Netherworld has a very distinct bulldozer of a personality that makes it stand severed head and shoulders above the rest.  You’ll never EVER mistake Netherworld for another haunt.  It is proudly and steadfastly its own thing.
