While elaborate complex themes and backstories are common in modern Haunted Attractions, it was not the case twenty years ago. One of the things that made NETHERWORLD different back in the early years and still keeps it relevant in the modern age is the use of complex stories to both connect it from season to season and create a fresh start for marketing and production design each and every year. What follows are VERY short descriptions of the themes of NETHERWORLD from its first season to 2016. If you would like to learn more, see the museum page of www.fearworld.com or find our weekly blogs counting down till opening day of the 2016 season, year 20 of NETHERWORLD Haunted House! Year 1 1997 The Colber Mansion - The gateway to the NETHERWORLD is opened by Maxmillan Colber for the first time and a legion of horrors emerge! The first year haunt featured a vortex tunnel, original monsters and a giant fish like biting puppet called the Netherspawn. The first icon Character was also introduced: the nightmarish Angel of Death!
Year 2 1998 Vampire The Masquerade and Vault 13 - The haunt featured characters from White Wolf games such as a Nosferatu Vampire, a massive werewolf and a tentacled war ghoul, in addition to storylines, sets and concepts from the games featured in its WORLD OF DARKNESS series. The second attraction began with a descent to a secret base buried deep within the earth via an elevator effect, bizarre mutations, alien artifacts and a 1 million volt Tesla coil!
Year 3 1999 The Apocalypse and NETHERWORLD 3D - On the eve of the millennium the attraction featured blasted cities, armored war beasts and the horsemen of the Apocalypse! NETHERWORLD 3D was one of the first attractions to use 3D ChromaDepth glasses and was sponsored by the inventor of the technology.
Year 4 2000 Primeval, NETHERWORLD Extreme 3D Haunted Mansion and Blood Feast - Guests were sent back in time to a prehistoric jungle to confront giant spiders, man-eating plants, dinosaurs and primitive beast men. The Extreme 3D Haunted Mansion featured ghosts and the supernatural housed in a creepy mansion. Bloodfeast was an offsite guided tour of an elaborate Medieval Torture Chamber filled with extreme gore!
Year 5 2001 Buried Alive and Planet X in 3D - The main show revolved around the reanimated dead of a twisted monastic order controlled by a weird creature from another dimension. Planet X in 3D was filled with aliens, spaceships, pure science fiction and a visit to an optically amazing alien world – Planet X!
Year 6 2002 Inner Sanctum and House Of Creeps in 3D - The mad Dr. Vargas created a device to make his patients’ fears into reality in Inner Sanctum and guests had to confront these horrors along with the inmates of his notorious asylum as they attempted to escape the haunt. House of Creeps in 3D revolved around a twisted sideshow filled with oddities and demented clowns, along with the bizarre illusions that a 3D show provides.
Year 7 2003 Dark Harvest, Vault 13 the Berserker Project and Tomb Of Darkness - Dark Harvest was an unsettling adventure through rural horror with scarecrows, abandoned farms, inbred townsfolk and of course, an encounter with the savage moss covered Harvestman. A return to VAULT 13 featured a secret base totally choked with green fog swarming with grotesque mutants, and the first year of our downstairs show had guests explore a pitch black Egyptian tomb of an accursed queen who had been purged from history… Necrotis!
Year 8 2004 Spirits of The Dead, Very Scary Tales in 3D, and Oblivion - The Collector, the most famous of NETHERWORLD’s icon characters stalks the tilted tombs and yawning graves of Whyshburg cemetery in search of human souls in Spirits Of The Dead, a book of children’s stories comes to horrifying life in Very Scary Tales in 3D, and evil souls are twisted into creatures of torment in the pitch dark and edgy Oblivion haunted house.
Year 9 2005 Abomination, Terror On Tiki Island in 3D, and Slaughterhouse - An aquatic warlord of the Dark Ones emerges from the ocean to lead monstrosities into battle in Abomination!

Year 10 2006 Cursed, Shock-O-Rama in 3D and Freakpit -The 10 year anniversary of the haunt heralded the return of Maximillian Colber from the depths of the NETHERWORLD telling of the nightmares soon to unfold in the Cursed places of our earth. Shock-O-Rama in 3D delved into the craziness of pre-comics code “funny books” and Freakpit featured Dr. Bile’s collection of freaks taking up residence in Mann’s Slaughterhouse. NETHERWORLD appeared on CBS this Morning on Halloween this year in a very positive story on haunted attractions around the country.
Year 11 2007 Leviathan and Primal Fear - This year the upstairs Haunt that had previously been separated into two attractions was merged to create a much larger haunt called Leviathan. The theme was based on the Frankenstein legend with the creation of murderous flesh golems and an insidious plan to attack mankind. Primal Fear was a show encompassing as many of the deepest fears and phobias that one could possibly experience in a haunted house. This was one of the first years that NETHERWORLD was featured on the Travel Channel and it certainly wouldn’t be the last!
Year 12 2008 Carnivore and Mangler - Carnivore was a show about werewolves at war with the forces of the NETHERWORLD, the midpoint of a three year arc of famous classic monsters that had begun with Leviathan. Mangler debuted a tale of a methodical serial killer devoid of human emotion and immune to pain. The character of the Mangler became the de facto icon character of the downstairs show for years to come due to his popularity, and returned as a featured player or at least in a cameo role in almost all of the downstairs haunts from that point forward.
Year 13 2009 Blood Night and Zombie Rampage - In Blood Night the vampire lord Ghoulich devised a plan to black out the Sun so that vampires and creatures of the NETHERWORLD could ravage the earth without the fear of daylight. In Zombie Rampage, special chemicals developed to help soldiers fight better and to heal wounds get added to a popular energy drink, and when spilled into a local graveyard cause a…you guessed it… zombie rampage!
Year 14 2010 Gargoyle and Dead Salvage - Part 2 of the Blood Night saga sees an invasion of Gargoyles betraying the vampires in an all-out assault on both humans and undead. Dead Salvage explored the return of the Mangler as he began creating zombies with robotic parts in an indoor junkyard.
Year 15 2011 The Nightmares and Raw Meat - The final chapter of the Blood Night story featured the Gargoyles rulers, the Nightmare Kings, locked in all-out war with vampires and humanity. Raw Meat exposed alligators, mutants and worse living in the sewers and storm drains deep beneath us all!
Year 16 2012 Banshee and The Hive – In Banshee, The energy expended to stop the Blood Night allowed the evil sunken city of YS to rise once more, unleashing a plague of Banshees, the harbingers of death! In the HIVE a vast bomb shelter sealed since the cold war cracks open releasing an army of Insect /Human hybrid intent on world domination
Year 17 2013 The Dead Ones and Boogeyman – In The Dead Ones, The Inquisitor, a servant of the NETHERWORLD rises from YS to judge mankind. He finds that we have abandoned the old ways and summons the DEAD ONES – Skeletal life draining horrors to punish us.

Year 18 2014 Season Of the Witch and Spliced - The Witches seek to stop the DEAD ONES by appeasing the Inquisitor. On Halloween they release creatures and spirits in a celebration of the old ways, but the doorway swings too wide and ghosts escape the NETHERWORLD in mass!

Year 19 2015 The Rotting and Vault 13: Unearthed - The invading ghosts are draining the life from people causing them to become energy starved zombies called The Rotting! Vault 13 is taken over by an Artificial Intelligence called Proteus that uses its robotic defense systems to capture the Mangler and his clone creations.
Year 20 2016 Monsters and Vault 13: Meltdown - Primordial artificial lifeforms called Soul Eaters or Goloths are released from their Antarctic prison to cull the ghost population, but they rapidly spread and threaten all life on earth. Only the return of the legendary monsters of the NETHERWORLD has a chance of stopping them, but no matter what side wins we lose! In Vault 13: Meltdown, Proteus demands that the Manger make him a bride or he will set off all the warheads in the Vault creating a nuclear meltdown! And there you have it, a snapshot list of all twenty years of NETHERWORLD Haunted House! We hope you get a chance to come see us this year as we celebrate our 20 Seasons of Screams!
