Visibility/Location: This haunt was easy to spot from the street.

Wait Entertainment: There were no live actors during our viewing but visitors had the privilege of listening to creepy music and watching undead pop-out pneumatics as they made their way to the mausoleum, a walkway of terror, and the cemetery.

Length of Event: As long as you like.

Actor Performance: N/A

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Great.

Appropriate Ages: A must see for all ages.

Props / Special FX: Creatures, some undead, emerge from tombs, coffins, and the graveyard to pop out at the unsuspecting audience. Some other features included a skeleton blood fountain, an active crematorium, a deranged surgeon and his victim, and so much more.

Costumes / Make-up: N/A

Summary: Doorway to Doom was the brainchild of two men who have masterfully created, built, and animated some of the best creatures and structures I have ever seen. I hope their partnership and this Halloween lawn haunt continue for many years. To appreciate the full scope of this extensive haunt, guests need to observe everything in the front, side, and back of the house. It was definitely worth the trip. I can't wait to see next year's masterpiece.
