|Scare Factor: Low | Atmosphere: Good|
Visibility/Location: Since I know where the fairgrounds are and drive by regularly during daylight hours, I knew where to turn in. however, at night, if I didn't know where I was going I would not have knwon where to turn.... needs more lighting on the signs outside.
Wait Entertainment: Decent. Didn't seem very into their roles. Glanced at us, tried to get a scare out of us, then wandered away.
Length of Event: 15 minutes??
Actor Performance: Poor. Most of them stood there and glared at us. A few were strong. The clown was a little weak, could have gotten more into his character. Jumped out at us and then almost immediately lost interest in us.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Good, never ran into another group.
Appropriate Ages: 11+
Props / Special FX: Props are nice, but too much stopping us to look at them. One or two large props are fun, but other than that, it just gets boring. Spend half your time watching something twitch. Plus, as in previous years, I was almost hit by one of them. The actors need to work a little harder on group control and keeping people out of the way of the prop.
Costumes / Make-up: No complaints here!! Costumes and makeup looked excellent!
Summary: Overall, I was not nearly as impressed with Dungeon of Doom as I have been in previous years. The actors seemed even more out of touch than last year. Also, the stopped to watch props thing is not scary. And the ball room/whatever you call it is getting old. Neat effect, but for return customers like me, it's just not scary anymore. That and getting beaned in the head with plastic balls is not really my idea of a good time anymore. Some actos were very into their characters, however, some seemed like they could care less. Just flip a switch and let us watch the prop. Overall? I think Dungeon of Doom is losing its appeal. it's just not fresh anymore. Maybe time for a bigger overhaul?
Internal Nightmare, well, that was just pointless. Boring, quiet, too much fog, actors pusing walls into you and knocking you over, and maybe what 4 actors? That's about all I can say on that one.
