1999 – Year Three of NETHERWORLD Haunted House

by on May.29, 2016, under Haunted Houses, Haunting Ideas, History of NETHERWORLD, NETHERWORLD Haunted House

1999 was a make or break season for NETHERWORLD. For the first time we moved into a location with a year round lease, the same building we had occupied during 1998 but a different, larger suite. This location had amazingly high ceilings, but also presented a number of major complications that were very costly and put the attraction into a serious cash crunch. Two new fire escapes had to be constructed, multiple fire doors were added, a massive two sided firewall was built and these expenses combined with year round rent made success during the season extremely critical.

The theme was APOCALYPSE for the main show, reflecting the coming turn of the century (2000) and touching on the more elaborate themes that would be developed in the years to come. For the first time a second ticketed event was added… NETHERWORLD 3D Haunted House – The First 3D Haunted House in Atlanta or the Southeast. Fortunately the inventor of the Chroma Depth Technology that made 3D haunts possible lived in Atlanta and agreed to sponsor the haunt.

Both events were very successful and NETHERWORLD charged into the new century with a permanent home and the ability for the crew to work on the attraction all year long!

Check back soon for a further look into the twenty year history of NETHERWORLD Haunted House!
