/ 10:46 PM October 30, 2017

At Netherworld in Atlanta, Georgia, flesh-eating clowns of varying degrees of repulsiveness have been dispatched to troll the premises.


They, along with gruesome, hellish creatures dreamed up by the darkest of nightmares have helped the haunted house top a new list of the scariest destinations to get your spook on in the United states this year.

According to, spending on Halloween in the U.S. this year will top $10 billion, with $1 billion of that attributed to ticket purchases at themed haunted sites.


New this year at Netherworld, a popular destination for Halloween thrill-seekers, nature seeks “savage vengeance”against mankind for the evils unleashed on the planet in the attraction Primal Scream, while ancient fiends disguised as clowns chase visitors in the basement in search of human flesh.

In second place, The 13th Gate in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, features real snakes in a Louisiana swamp and claustrophobic cellars, while The Dent Schoolhouse in Cincinnati, takes up residence in a 19th century schoolhouse, and follows the legend of its murderous janitor.
