Visibility/Location: could use some work on the signs. use lights or something. but the dungeon of doom is so well known and the hwys are very popular you got to know where they are located. plus its at the fairgrounds...

Wait Entertainment: awesome. the wait room is dressed up in some really neat props and the actors out side are really into their job. there were about 4-5 actors all doing something individually creative to scare all the customers. they even got into the line and messed with you.

Length of Event: 25-30 minutes inside. depending on how fast you run through or like my friend wanted to look at all the hospital props. so watch your clocks its long and worth it.

Actor Performance: top notch. seems like the actors at DOD have been doing this for a while and they love what they do. they put a lot of work into scaring every person in my group. everyone got a little somethin somethin and no one left unsatisfied.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: it was pretty good. there was two parts where you are in with like 20 people... but that was to group up for the scene where you get buried alive. never ran into a group when we wernt supposed to.

Appropriate Ages: i wouldnt bring in a kid under 14 probably. there was a guy who brought like a 9yr old and he was cryin while in line to pay. i felt bad for the kid because i knew what he was in for. some kids have guts but this place is hard core and personally id take it into consideration.

Props / Special FX: its crazy how they have some huge props and real special effects and use them to their full potential. i love going every year and seeing whats new. its always a good time!

Costumes / Make-up: its harder to tell inside the haunt what exactly is going on with the makeup because its so dark and youre moving fast... but even the outside actors are dolled up in some gruesome prosthetics. they have awesome makeup that looks so real i want to touch!!

Summary: GO HERE!! worth the time, worth your money! from the atmosphere to the actors to the props and the interaction you get while in the house... its just a great haunt and i wont stop going. i recommend this place for anyone who wants thrills and chill...

Scare Factor: Very Low | Atmosphere: Average

Visibility/Location: There were no signs saying where to go unless you were already at the pier. which it wasnt at the pier. there are 2 goblins at the beginning of the pier handing out fliers.

Wait Entertainment: expected more from these guys. there were a bunch of monsters out scaring. but only 2 (the black mask guy whos face inflated, and the insane guy} they were the only ones in total character! i recall the guy that was managing the line he seemed like he was fresh out of California. his character voice was not frightful at all.

Length of Event: 10-15 mintues top. we breezed through the lizard thing. no scared in there at all. just an obnoxious actor pushing every one over with the blown up walls.

Actor Performance: huge let down. to many females who couldnt live up to scaring the s**t (censored) out of people. even the guys in there were almost worn out and just trying to move along the groups instead of giving us a real frightful time. the actors tried to scare the group once; in stead of scaring each person individually. there performance was weak!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: my group of 5 ran into the group of like 3 or 4 before the second room. and the group behind us as well ran into us. there was no effort on keeping groups separate.

Appropriate Ages: s**t (censored) . this scare factor was so low, id say go a head and bring the kid. if the kid has guts and you want to spend the $20 bucks on him go for it... but id find a better place for the child and adult to go. this was NOT an "adult haunt only!"

Props / Special FX: ill admit their props were pretty cool. but the sucky part was that the actors DID NOT KNOW HOW TO USE THE ROOM OR THE PROPS GIVIN!! waste of good props....

Costumes / Make-up: yeah their make up ranked the same as walgreens face paint for little kids Halloween costumes! give me a break and do something interesting!!!

Summary: NOT WORTH THE MONEY! or the drive. actors are very weak and the haunted house its self was poor. it seemed like effort was lacking on giving the customers what they expected to get out of it all. waste of time....
