Visibility/Location: Wasn't that hard to find. As long as you pay attention to the signs scattered about when you get around the intersection 45 & 120. Its not hard to figure out

Wait Entertainment: WOW!!! These guys were amazing!! I've been going to the Dungeon for years now and the outside actors are always amazing. Dozer, Crawl, Kasper (I found their myspace profiles), the stilt guy, a cool looking Vampire chick and there was some new guy in a red jacket that looked cool. Unfortunately I didnt see Jerk The Jester or that growling creature guy this time :( Regardless, the makeup always looks professional and they do a great job! Always love watching them slide around too, it always looks awesome! 
 
The line was very long, but at least we were kept entertained by the actors roaming around scaring people. The nice thing was they had 2 other buildings opened up to wait in to keep people out of the cold overall. They decorated one of the buildings with bones and stuff hanging, they had some metal music playing, and some red lights to keep the mood a little bit. The main buildings waiting line seemed smaller but they always do a good job setting the mood with a TV playing some old gory movies and some good music playing. Definitely helps keeps you anxious to get in.

Length of Event: about 25 minutes I think

Actor Performance: Everyone seemed on their A game all the way through.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Overall it seemed fine until we got to the fence maze, where we caught up with another group that was lost.

Appropriate Ages: i think their flier is right, definitely not for kids under 12

Props / Special FX: Everything looked good, they had more detail in some of the rooms this year.

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and makeup inside and out looked great! It looks like they dont mess around with bad makeup or costumes, very professional looking. I dont think I saw anybody wearing a corny mask.

Summary: The Dungeon of Doom definitely stepped it up a great deal from last year. The phone booth was really cool and all my group was really surprised what happened with that. Saw some old rooms from the previous years and some cool revamps for this year. The clown hallway was cool and the hospital was much better this year! The Frankenstein room was cool and they really put on a good show in there but I remembered there was actual electricity hitting the monster before, but they didnt do that this year... kinda took away from the realism... Besides that, the buried alive room is always something I look forward to every year. The dungeon of doom, in my opinion has always put on a good show, but this year by far was the best I've ever seen it. From the actors to the props and everything else, I cant say I was at all disappointed. I've been to quite a few haunted houses this year and The Dungeon of Doom is by far the best haunted house I've been to! GREAT JOB GUYS!!! I CANT WAIT FOR NEXT YEAR!
