|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: I dont know how much easier they could have got. they have signs all over! The new building is so crazy, its really haunted looking. im glad they got out of that tin can.
Wait Entertainment: the wait has always been entertaining. it seems this year they have more actors outside than last- the make up and costumes were straight from a horror movie. i will say that the atmosphere was a little down than last, but it was huge! no TV- but the physical entertainment was more hyped up, to it evened out.
Length of Event: me and my friends got the VIP ultimate, the most expensive ticket. we also got front of the line, even tho the wait was like 20 mintues.... but i didnt know that we got to go through 4 different haunts inside the ONE HAUNT! i heard that there were like 6 or something different haunts in one, and what ever ticket you get depends on how much of the house you get to see. so we all will be going back at the end of the month to see what else we didnt see last time. the over all time was around an hour. Very much worth it!!
Actor Performance: Always top notch! they were so into character, and seemed like they really enjoyed being there.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: no problems, never ran into a group unless were were supposed to. there was a new 'room' it was a huge maze with deadends and all! so we obviously ran into a group or two there, but i think that was the point.
Appropriate Ages: i know they say 12+ but my 15 yr old brother waited in the wait area... plus as a 20 yr old guy the props and everything was pretty close to real life as you can get.
Props / Special FX: They never fail to bring you the best, they have what other haunts dont. and thats why we always go to the DOD!!
Costumes / Make-up: Like i said before- its so ture to life, it looks like they came to work right after being mangled in a car wreck. The costumes were right on with what ever room they were working- they made the character complete.
Summary: I have been going here for the past 7 years- and i also go to other haunts around here. Problem is- the DOD will never have competition, they are the best at it, and i love it. We are all going back at the end of the month to see how much more hyped it gets when its close to the end. The way they have the prices & passes are really cool considering that you get to go through a different haunt every time you come! that was pure genius!
the wait and the $ was well worth the 60 of watching my girl scream like the world was ending!!
awesome job guys!
