|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: If you are not familiar with the area or fair grounds this might be a little tough to find, there are a couple of signs along the way that point you in the right direction but the attraction is not visible from the main streets.
Wait Entertainment: DOD has always had one of my favorite "waiting rooms", with the numerous props, graveyard scene, hanging man and monster vision screen there is plenty to look at and keep you busy while you wait. The actors that roam this area are also very effective!
Length of Event: 10-15 minutes depending on your pace!
Actor Performance: All of the actors seemed to try their best to get a good scream out of the visitors, however as mentioned before some of their timing was a little off.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: This was not and has never been a problem at DOD. I have never had a group run into us; likewise I never have had a group run into us!
Appropriate Ages: 10+
Props / Special FX: The props were great and most of the scenes were very detailed. The special FX in the opening scene and the Monks area were very well put together. Plus the buried alive area is always a crowd favorite!
Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and make-up were great. The clowns that were roaming the crowd when we arrived looked and performed great!
Summary: I have always like the DOD and have never been disappointed with my experience there! The price is fair, the length is just right and the acting and scenes are above par! Great job in 2005 and keep it up for the years to come!
