What’s better than a haunted house for fall fun? A whole haunted village, that’s what!
The Village is a brand new attraction, taking place on the grounds of the Georgia Renaissance Festival.
This is an immersive, outdoor experience that promises seasonal scares and plenty of thrills as you walk through the Village streets.
The Village website bills this as an intense experience, with graphic scenes that are recommended for those age 13 and above. There are loud sounds, simulated blood, strobe lights, fog machines, gory scenes, and actors portraying terrifying creatures.
From a press release:
“A quiet community, long since forgotten, has come alive. Centuries ago, the ground this small village was built upon was cursed. It has been home to many unsuspecting residents for decades, unaware of the unspeakable evil that was waiting to awaken.”

Know before you go:
You’ll be walking outside in low light conditions on various surfaces, paved and unpaved — so wear sturdy walking shoes. The event takes place rain or shine, so dress for the weather. The walk through The Village takes about 30 minutes.
Food and drink:
You’ll be able to buy classic fair food like cheeseburgers, hot dogs, fries, funnel cakes, pretzels, and more — plus the signature turkey legs that the GA Ren Fest is famous for.
Adult beverages sold on site include hard cider, mead, hard lemonade, and beer. There will also be soda, bottled water, and lemonade available.
