This event begins with an introduction presented by three hooded figures with glowing eyes, standing up on a platform. They warn of you impending danger and ask if you wish to continue (at your own risk, of course).
In your travels through the Dungeon of Terror, you will experience several scenes with assorted themes. I saw flesh eating spiders and an alien ‘X-Files’ scene, just to give
you a couple of examples. I enjoyed the detailed graveyard and the black & white square hallway with a strobe light was very disorienting. Also, beware of the electrocution scene this year. If you have attended in previous years, this season the scene is completely different. Many of the scenes had their own custom
music soundtrack / sound effects that were appropriate for the motif of the surroundings. The butcher shop was the scene that took me by surprise the most. Distracted by a clever visual effect, you don’t realize what you are walking into until it is too late. Overall, I thought that the most appealing area was the Exorcist Scene. You can tell it’s coming before you even
get there, because you can hear the movie theme playing in the background, as you approach the room. This area was detailed to resemble the bedroom of the famous movie classic. As you look on, the music soundtrack blares and the possessed girl ‘levitates’ off the bed and swings out at you.
This attraction really gave me a claustrophobic feeling.
The Dungeon of Terror has some of the tightest and darkest hallways in a haunted house that I have ever seen. The lengths of dark, twisting hallways were narrow enough where I nearly had to turn sideways to get through a couple of them.
Besides having some interesting scenes, there were some nice animated props throughout the house. They had everything from an animated tombstone to a toxic waste barrel with a pop-up surprise. But the most impressive animation had to be the ghoul with his arms outstretched, that flew right above your head! I didn’t see that one coming!
Most of the actor’s scares were right on target and they really seemed to enjoy scaring the customers. All of them were very enthusiastic. The scares seemed
to come from all directions by both visible characters and those hidden by the darkness.
The Mazon crew put together some nice new scenes and additions to their house this year. The Dungeon of Terror is a lot of fun to go through and it is definitely a bargain at only $6.00 for about 15 minutes of entertainment.
