Another year.....

For those of you who follow us on Facebook, you're probably aware there have been no announcements regarding the future of Rot N. Rusty's.  At this time, again...we regret to inform you we will not be open for the 2015 season.

This will be our 3rd year on hiatus.  While it certainly is bittersweet, we hope it's given many of you (including our alumni) a chance to spread your wings and experience other nearby haunts each fall.  That's one of the things you miss out on when you participate in a haunted house, you normally don't get to check out the competitors.

No one really knows what the future holds for us right now.  But we thank you all for the tremendous support both in and out of business.  Maybe one day we will re open and blow your socks off.

Even though our communication with you is sometimes few and far between, we still think about you often.  It's uplifting to hear you reminisce about the haunt whenever you see us in public.  To know we made an impact on even just one person moves mountains for us.

Signing off..boils and ghouls

Closed for 2014

We've been getting a lot of messages lately regarding the status of Rot N. Rusty's.

 It is with stiff bodies and morbid hearts we announce 
we will not be open this 2014 season. 

We appreciate all of you, our fans and every last volunteer throughout the seasons.

Zombie Run!!!

Zombie Run is a Zombie-infested 5k obstacle fun run.  Run as an individual or form a team to navigate the obstacle course and avoid the flesh eating Zombies!  This event is being held at the Guardian Center, a former cold-war nuclear missile plant converted to be the nations premier disaster preparation and validation center. It features a modern city-scape, 300 vehicles, a working subway and a highway built to D.O.T specifications for us to stage the apocalypse.

The Guardian Centers
Saturday, Oct 25 2014, 9:00 AM - 1:30 PM
600 Perry Pkwy, Perry, GA 31069 

What you get as a Zombie:
Discounted race registration for only $20 (optional)
Professional zombie transformation
Admittance to the finish festival
Free snacks and water
An “infected” race medal

Zombie Transformation:
The Zombie Transformation Center is where our zombies will undergo their full zombie transformation. Our team of professional make-up artists will help you channel your zombie identity by transforming your outer beauty into a disgusting and hungry zombie. We will also custom shred and bloody your clothes to attract the most delicious brains, so come in your best costume. The entire zombie transformation process will take about 20 minutes, and when you leave the ZTC you will officially be a member of the Zombie Horde. You can kiss humanity goodbye, at least for a few hours.

What type of zombie do I want to be?
Chaser Zombie:
Think you can outrun the living and get the most brains? Then join our horde of “Chaser Zombies.” The job is simple: chase after runners who think they can get by you and don’t let them by grabbing their flags. But be careful, you have to chase inside your zombie zone or risk being a lone zombie, which doesn’t scare anyone.

Stumbler Zombie:
Join the “Stumbler Zombies” and relentlessly pursue those tasty brains by bringing the intimidation through stumbling, crawling, shuffling, dragging, or any other type of slow movement. Success comes in numbers, so stay in the zombie zone and work together with your fellow stumblers to feed your appetite.

What to Bring:
Besides the race essentials, zombies will need to bring:
-Your best costume. Wardrobe will NOT be provided, so be sure to bring a costume to be bloodied and shredded. Long-sleeve shirts and pants are highly encouraged. Nothing ruins the zombie effect more than seeing your toned arms and legs, and we will not have time to apply makeup to them.
-Contacts, if you love the haunted, undead eye look.
-Photo ID.
-Parent/legal guardian signed waiver (only if you are under 18).
-Lawn chairs to enjoy the festivities after your zombie shift.
-You will be covered in mud, blood, and other apocalyptic liquids after the race, so bring a towel and a change of clothing.
-Your best zombie attitude.

Still have some questions? Check out our zombie FAQs for answers to all things zombie!

Want to run?! If you think you can handle both sides of the food chain, zombies have the option to be runners as well for an additional $20 on event day. When you register, make sure you select “I want to be a runner” in the “Add-Ons” section before you reach the payment page. But like zombie registration, you must sign up to be a runner before the registration deadline.

Important Announcement

Greetings Boils & Ghouls,

After much thought and consideration we announce the hiatus of Rot N Rusty's Haunted House for the 2013 season.  We greatly appreciate your support over the last twelve years, if it weren't for our volunteers and fans none of this would have been possible.  It is time we fall into the dark abyss to continue our decay.  We encourage you all to visit other local haunted houses. 

Most importantly...keep an eye out and an ear open for us in 2014!

Thursday, August 22, 2013


Hello Boils & Ghouls,

I guess most of you are wondering where in the world we've been?  Truth is, we're still here and very much alive!  We have a big announcement coming up in the next week or so, be sure to check back to see what it is.

Until then....
