Want a nightmare before Christmas? Haunted houses aren't just for Halloween anymore

Haunted houses aren’t just for Halloween anymore. Many of the unusual fall haunts are open this weekend for a few nightmares before Christmas.

Netherworld, arguably the Southeast’s best-haunted attraction, is opening up its home for the holidays. Saturday, they are opening their haunted house to a limited number of guests for rope-led tours through Night of Gorgon, a holiday-themed haunted world.

After a yuletide midway, guests can also visit Mutant Madness where guests can strap up in advanced laser tag equipment and blast their way to the holiday.
