A ghost story may be a common occurrence at Atlanta hotels and resorts, but it can be especially disconcerting at the Atlanta Horror House.
Halloween is the most popular holiday in the United States, and Halloween Horror Nights are usually held every year on Halloween, which is when the hotels and attractions at the Haunted Atlanta resort get a scare.
According to the Atlanta Times-Constitution, the Haunted Haunt in downtown Atlanta is one of the few hotels in the world to offer haunted attractions, but visitors should stay away from the grounds as it is “toxic.”
According to a report from the Atlanta Journal-Constituent, Haunted Haunts have been known to feature the appearance of people dressed as ghosts and goblins, and even to appear as zombies.
According the report, some guests have been seen dressed in costumes from Halloween costumes to scare off ghosts.
The Atlanta Hotel and Resorts Association said in a statement to the newspaper that the Haunted Haunted Haunting at the hotel has been the most successful event they’ve hosted in the past decade.
“In addition to the Halloween season, our Haunted Haunted Events feature over 1,100 live entertainers that are able to scare the living daylights out of guests,” a spokesperson told the paper.
“We are committed to providing a safe and enjoyable experience for guests, and the Haunted Halloween Haunt at the HHR is no different.”
Atlanta hotel operator Holiday Inn Express told the Times-Picayune that its Haunted Huts feature a live-action performance of a Halloween themed show, and guests can visit the grounds for a free Halloween-themed photo booth and get a behind-the-scenes tour.
Holiday Inn Express also said that its Haunt is free to guests.
“For guests visiting Atlanta on Halloween we encourage everyone to bring a costume and enjoy the unique experience of the Haunted Ghost House,” a Holiday Inn spokesperson told local news station WSB-TV.
“Visitors to the Haunted Hall are encouraged to bring their own costume and to dress up in their favorite Halloween-inspired costume.”
The Atlanta City Council is expected to vote on the issue at a meeting on October 26.
