There's even booze for a little liquid courage.🍻
Things To Do For Halloween In Atlanta Include This Interactive Cursed Experience

Haunted houses strike again as Halloween quickly approaches. The infamous Netherworld and spooky corn mazes are sure to ignite the fright, but if you're spent with the same old masks and chainsaws, you can opt for something different. When it comes to things to do for Halloween in Atlanta, there's a unique experience coming next month called Cursed and it involves a legitimately doomed box full of creepy heirlooms.

What is Cursed?

Cursed Atlanta is an interactive experience with real paranormal significance that is sure to elicit a horrific experience for participants.

In conjunction with the Institute for Atypical & Peculiar Sciences, this immersive adventure aims to investigate a cursed artifact in relation to the science of belief, studied by the institute.

Cursed differs from a haunted house or escape room.

It is a unique Halloween experience that mimics a multi-sensory "choose-your-own-adventure" book in real life for a small audience of fright-seeking folks.

How does it work?

A group of 11 courageous explorers will enter the void to unleash the supernatural powers of this mysterious antique called the "Daymare Box".

Prepare yourself for terror, because there is much more than simply exploring the objects inside.

The engagement element of this immersive production allows guests to interact with performers and create their own narratives through various choices and courses of action.

May the brave be warned.

The website states that participants may encounter self-induced paranoia or nightmares, but there's no need to fear actual otherworldly possession.

Count me in! More deets, please.

Beginning October 2 through Halloween, bold believers may dare to enter The Basement in East Atlanta Village to discover this truly eerie escapade.

The venue itself has a local legend of being haunted by "shadow people" adding an even more spine-chilling element to the mix.

Gather your squad and tackle this terror as a group because only 11 people are permitted per experience, which lasts up to 2.5 hours.

Limited capacity helps incorporate the fully contactless, COVID-friendly concept implemented by Cursed. Masks and proper social distancing are required, and temperature checks are executed upon entry.

You can even get your drink on at this 21+ event with boozy libations available for purchase at the bar during intermission periods. Additional non-alcoholic drinks will be available as well.

Tickets cost $49.95 and are available now via Eventbrite.


Price: $49.95

When: October 2 through October 31

Address: 1245 Glenwood Ave. SE., Atlanta, GA

Why You Need To Go: Get spooked in a new and exciting way at this cursed paranormal experience that lets you pave the way to your doom.
