The Legend

In 1929, a man by the name of Oliver Sommersby went on a gruesome killing spree and took the lives of everyone who was unfortunate enough to be staying at the Hotel Waldorf that fateful night. As shocking as the crime was, it wasn’t as shocking as the fact that he managed to escape. Twenty-six years later he appeared in Lehighton. Middle-aged and wealthy, Sommersby opened up a restaurant and pub with rooms in the back for the weary travelers. For years he went on a discreet torture and killing spree preying on the vulnerable and weak. He picked his victims carefully, making sure there was nobody to come looking for them. During a period of 10 years, he’s believed to have killed over 25 people, including women and children.

But Oliver Sommersby made a fatal mistake. He picked Ella, the daughter of a local butcher as his next victim. Her father looked for her everywhere until he reached Sommersby’s pub. Tearing through the pub, the father finally reached the attic where he found Oliver Sommersby crouched next to the remains of poor Ella. She was mutilated beyond recognition. In the ensuing fight, Sommersby managed to stab Ella’s father in the chest, but the butcher pulled the knife out of his own chest and buried it deep in Sommersby’s heart, thus bringing to an end the wretched life of the serial killer. But the legend lives on.

The Attractions

Everything in the Waldorf Estate of Fear is about gore, horror, and facing your worst nightmare. The Zombie Escape rooms give you only 30 minutes to solve the riddles and escape the room before the zombies are set loose. Infection is another interactive game with horror and zombies dominating the world. This time the goal is to save your vital organs before you turn into a zombie yourself. Terror In The Corn is a hayride with a twist; the corn is not as harmless as it looks. Danger lurks behind the stalks and you’re the next designated victim. Can you make it out of there alive and sane?
