Busch Gardens Williamsburg announces “Lumberhack” and “Cornered” haunted houses for Howl-O-Scream

Busch Gardens Williamsburg announces "Lumberhack" and "Cornered" haunted houses for Howl-O-Scream 3



Amidst the big announcement from Busch Gardens today about the Scarlett’s Revenge haunted house announcement, Busch Gardens in Williamsburg also announced two other haunted house.  Both of which are new for 2015.

First of is “Lumberhack.”  Here is the description via the official Howl-O-Scream website:


Hikers beware: the woods hold a terrifying secret. More than 50 years ago a logging camp was abandoned after a horrific accident where saws ripped into human flesh instead of tree bark. Tragically, the loggers perished … only to inexplicably awaken from death sometime later filled with inhuman rage. The undead loggers rampaged until every living thing in the camp had felt the bite of their axes. Now the forgotten lumberjacks lie waiting for unsuspecting campers to stumble into their den of the damned.

Next up is Cornered.  This seems to be a pretty cool concept.  After all, who doesn’t love a haunted house themed after a corn maze?  Here is the official description:


It’s 1977 and a picturesque farming community is in an uproar over the ongoing disappearances of its residents. Each time someone goes missing, an intricate corn husk doll is left behind leading many to suspect local corn-farmer Jasper McCobb. The McCobb farm has fallen into disrepair since the death of Jasper’s mother. Could the missing townspeople be somewhere in the maze of maize? Join the search party and find out.

Which one do you think sounds better? Lumberhack or Cornered?
