It’s one thing to watch scary movies during Halloween season, but it’s something entirely different to willingly place yourself into a spooky scene! Haunted houses are a fun way to get scared in a controlled environment, and there are some really exciting ones this year in Georgia. Haunted houses tend to embrace a theme or change themes with a new cast of characters from year to year. If you’re brave enough, check out these nine haunted houses and attractions in Georgia!

Scream on the Trail, Snellville (Nearby Hotels)
This is a unique outdoor haunted attraction in Snellville that’s worth checking out this Halloween season. Unlike the haunted houses on this list, this attraction is an outdoor trail that’s full of startles and spooks. If you are easily scared or visiting with kids, you can ask the gatekeeper for a low-scare version of the attraction. Your spooky journey begins by walking down a creepy dirt road and seeing the cross of the Scarecrow Man. You’ll learn about this character’s story and why this area is so haunted before reaching the Slawter House. This is where a crazed butcher resides, and from there, you’ll experience a cemetery and plenty of other spirits and monsters along the trail. Since this is an outdoor attraction, the open hours may be affected by weather. But if you’ve already done the haunted house thing a few times, this is an interesting twist on that concept that you’ll never forget!
Gates of Misery, Rome (Nearby Hotels)
This is another one of the scariest haunted houses in Georgia, with a 12,000-square-foot walk-through attraction filled with screams, nightmares, and torture. Gates of Misery is housed in a 95-year-old, two-story building in Rome and near the Rome Braves Stadium. It’s about 75 miles from both Atlanta and Chattanooga.

Chaos Haunted House, Carrollton (Nearby Hotels)
