One couldn't ask for a better night attend a Haunted House! First the weather; perfect setting! Ominous, foreboding winds stirring up decaying leaves to the point of whirling eddies within the parking lot of Sheboygan's 'Dominion of Terror'; October, gearing its grinding teeth full throttle right at my face! ... This alone made it the perfect night for a Halloween haunt! I could've traveled 350 miles south to one of those 'most feared' places to take a ghost tour such as 'Bobby Mackey's in Wilder, Kentucky, to get my adrenalin rushing, but I didn't have to, WE have a true gem right in our backyard in the DOT. The opening sequence initiated 'panic mode' from Mother Goose having our group sit down in linear fashion while heeding us to obey the rules which were magically 'appearing' on the wall in front of us! I knew, as well as my group that we were in for a wild ride ahead! My intuitions were dead on of course; the monsters within seemed to be in their niche, almost to the point knowing their role for eternity, from slithering zombies to skulking sycophants of the dead, the 'fairy-tailed' theme decked itself out with full atrocity, with one thinking..'Can all fairy-tails be so bad???'' True to be known, as I myself had witnessed, they can take a sour-turn for the worst! I have been to over 100 different 'haunted house's throughout my 38 years, but what really stood out with the DOMINION OF TERROR is that the rooms and themes are different EVERY year, so if you come here expecting the same from last year, leave your underwear at home or bring an extra pair. This was by far with in the top 5 haunted houses I personally stepped into. Well done and thoroughly recommended!
Awesome! Was entertained and well put in my place as far as fear from the onstart! All monsters were dead-on (no pun intended..) in their roles, it was almost like each and every form within that place where in their collective niche, meaning to be there to scare all intruders who have to guts and bravado to come through. The entry-fee was very reasonable compared to other haunts, others who keep the same based theme year to year, that is..Overall, I give this years Jaycees 'Dominion of TError' spectacle an 9/10! Keeping that one point not reaching a TEN in my back pocket for next year!! ;) Very good acting, great atmosphere, monsters outside scaring the people in line were like the ones who broke their shackles within to come torture or commence fear into the ones wanting to enter. From the concessions outside, to the security, everybody knew their role and performed to job well! Sincerely Mr. Anonymous ;)
