|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: the visual of the building was awesome, the building gave a spooky feeling right off the bat. location was pretty cool, out in the woods, back by nothing- really creepy! i have read that some ppl are complaining about the "sign viability" all i got to say is that nowadays, everyone has a GPS, or print off directions and a map! if you rely on your own stupidity to say 'we are going to the dungeon, ill just drive to Zion and hope that they have signs pointing my way" well then you asked for it! lol everyone knows where the dungeon is, and if not, they prepare themselves!
Wait Entertainment: the entertainment was really fun, like always! the outside actors are always fun to watch. i think they can decorate the wait area a lot better tho. but the music and the little snip-its of the DOD cast talking is pretty awesome!
Length of Event: we bought the $25 ticket, and my group of 4 timed our walk through. mainly because there have been mixed reviews of how long it actually is.... we were in the DOD for exactly 37 minutes!
Actor Performance: for the most part they were always on Que. but there were some actors that were off on their scare, my group was only 4 ppl, idk how you can get that timing wrong, but that only happened 2 or 3 times. i dont like some of the inside actors saying "get out of heeerre!" its was like for every 10 good actors there were 1-2 not so scary ones. i LOVED how the actors in the kitchen and in the hospital got soooo into character tho!!
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: we never ran into any other group except when we went to buried dead or alive. but thats to be expected its always like that... and i dont mind the intermission.
Appropriate Ages: i say kids with some strong guts ages 13+. its really gruesome, and some language isnt appropriate for little ones.
Props / Special FX: always detailed to the T. they might not have had toooo many new rooms, but if anyone noticed, most of all the hallways were changed from last year (plain black dark hallways) to extremely detailed walk ways. i liked the bug hallway- and steppin on all the roaches! and the VIP corridor was awesome with the mummies flying out at you! very cool. I also liked being able to walk up on top of the gateway, that was a cool addition from last year too! there are so much more new things they added, it just seems like people dont pay attention enough. the Saw room was pretty killer too!
Costumes / Make-up: make up is alllllways fricken awesome! so real looking. costumes fit the character of the rooms...
Summary: Go to this haunt, spend the $25 bucks. you wont regret it. i have been going for the past 5 years. i followed them from the old fair grounds and i will follow them anywhere. these guys know how to do it right. there are too many things that this haunt does right vs other haunts... you can tell that these actors are really into their job, and that makes it all worth it! I love the dungeon, and i will always be going there. they have stepped it up from last year, and the skills of the acting are better every year. the props and detail never goes unnoticed, the makeup is crazy real looking. there is always room for improvements, and with a permanent building, there is no stopping for the DOD!
