Visibility/Location: Considering the Dungeon is off of a main road... I made sure to look up how to get there. Anyone complaining about location.. did you use common sense and bother using a map or your GPS? It's not hard to find if you know how to follow a map and drive for that matter.

Wait Entertainment: the waiting line actors are top notch! The 2 clowns were awesome, I was laughing hysterically watching them scare other patrons. Then there was this tall disgusting guy who works at the door before you enter the actual haunt, wow! He was insane to watch... word of advice dont bump into him.. lol 
All of the makeup on these guys looked top notch and very convincing!

Length of Event: it lasted about 45 minutes for us.

Actor Performance: Actors were great, it seems the Dungeon of Doom has been working hard to fine tune scares. Even though it was the second weekend and it was towards the end of the night most of the actors were on point.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We never bumped into another group until the Buried scene and the maze, which I'm sure is the appropriate places to run into other groups.

Appropriate Ages: I wouldnt recommend this haunt for anyone under 15. Very intense

Props / Special FX: A couple props weren't working, but overall everything looked great, you can tell they had alot of time since last year to elaborate on detail. Lots of scenes looked really good. A couple that stood out was the cabin, the kitchen, and the hospital, but there were plenty of other very detailed rooms.

Costumes / Make-up: These guys dont play around when it comes to makeup. Everything looked professional and very convincing! only saw 1 guy wearing a mask, but 1 out of 100 is no big deal!

Summary: The Dungeon of Doom has definitely stepped their game up this year, I was thoroughly impressed. Once again, it's obvious they have been working to fine tune their attraction.  
I recommend this haunt to anyone who wants to experience a really intense haunted house.  
GREAT WORK THIS YEAR GUYS! I'm going to comeback out again with some more friends this season..

Visibility/Location: It's pretty obvious, just look for the "Kristoff's" sign and there are people guiding traffic at the entrance with a sign

Wait Entertainment: Considering it was the first night and it was raining out, there was only one guy (Jason Vorhees) outside roaming around. There were a few creepy hospital patients that would appear in the ticket area. Still entertaining to watch nonetheless

Length of Event: 30 mins

Actor Performance: The actors were great about staying in character, making you believe they were psychos that took over an insane asylum. Although one guy in particular said something to me, that I consider to be 'fighting words'... I brushed it off but it was not appreciated. out of respect, some people need to watch who they're spouting off at.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: we never ran into another group although they cleverly left certain windows open so you can see a group ahead of you getting scared, but your not quite sure when you'll walk into that particualr room... good work keeping patrons guessing.

Appropriate Ages: 16+ event.. and definitely not for the easily offended.

Props / Special FX: They definitely shine with major attention to detail and the layout of the haunt very creative. They seem to base their scares off of the actors and atmoshperes and dont rely on mechanical props.

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes were looking top notch, great job!

Summary: The layout seemed the same from last year and I couldnt really tell if there was anything particularly new, but ROT always works hard to put on a h--e--double-hockey-sticks (censored) of a show.  
The new intro video was very cool! I always love the atmosphere of Realm because it really looks like your in a mental ward gone wrong. My other fave was the final white maze... holy shiz, disorienting to say the least, it is such a cool effect.  
Awesome job ROT!
