Jekyll Island Club Hotel

Three Unusual Halloween Haunts in Georgia

Spooky hotels. Haunted cornfields. Chilling escapes. These three haunts aren't your normal Halloween fright fests. They offer something a little creepier to get the hair on the back of your neck to stand up.

Spend the night communing with guests who never checked out at two historic Georgia Hotels. Jekyll Island Club Resort on the Georgia coast, and York House Inn in North Georgia are purported to have resident ghosts and paranormal activity. At the York House Inn, paranormal researcher and author Chad Morin is your host and teacher for Ghost Hunt Weekends, where classes and lectures end with a ghost hunt at the hotel. Reserve your spot for an especially spooky Halloween Oct. 30-31, 2017

Don't just let the ghouls scare you, fight back. Pandemic is Fear The Woods newest haunted attraction. Victims, I mean guests, try to stay alive in an 80,000-square-foot cornfield crawling with live zombies. Don’t worry, you’ll have advanced laser guns, and plenty of obstacles to hide behind at one of the top haunted experiences in Atlanta.

Breakout

What could be scarier than being lost in a chilly old mansion full of secrets, or being trapped in quarantine with a lethal virus on the loose? Those are the scenarios at Breakout Atlanta and Mastermind Escape Games, where groups have one hour to crack codes, solve puzzles and find the clues that will get them out of danger, and escape the room. This is a true adrenaline rush without the gore.
