Review

Dominion of Terror is absolutely one of my favorite haunts, and I was blown away with this year’s house! Located in a 3-story warehouse in Sheboygan, DOT operates as a non-profit, run and funded by the Sheboygan Jaycees and dozens of volunteers. Each year, they create an entirely new and terrifying haunt, and of course this year was no exception!

We arrived around 8:30PM and elected to buy the speed pass. We waited only moments to enter and while inside, we never encountered another group! Seriously prepare to be scared as you enter into this haunt, which is full of creative and memorable scenes. I particularly enjoyed a few medical scares throughout the haunt, including a padded room and a true fear – a dentist. DOT is full of talented actors, who utilize jump scares and misdirection to leave you constantly wondering when or even IF they will make a move. The monsters in this haunt use their props and intricate scenes to their fullest, taking advantage of any opportunity to lead you down a dark hallway, or follow a creature into the darkness.

With amazing scares, impeccable timing, and a super creative team, DOT continues to impress another year. Luckily I don’t have to wait too long until I can go again – DOT puts on an encore in April every year!

Signage / Visibility / Location


DOT is very easy to find via Google maps; with lots of signage on their building and lights.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment


With the speed pass, we largely bypassed most of the line, but lots of actors were weaving themselves throughout the crowd.

Actors' Performance


The actors in DOT have amazing restraint! They know when to jump out, when to hold back, and when to use misdirection to their advantage. There is a huge variety of people and costumes as well!

Sets Scenes / Props / FX


Very varied, and lots that were very creative, using elements you wouldn’t normally think of as traditionally scary. These sets are also really detailed! They use mazes, inflatables, and light to disorient and confuse as well.

Length


Around 30 minutes, and over 3 floors.

Crowd Control


Awesome, especially as speed pass people – we hardly waited, and never encountered another group during our time in the haunt.

Most Memorable Moment


Two words – wall hands.

Summary

Dominion of Terror has outdone themselves again with a creative and detailed, full of terrifying scenes that will linger with you long after leaving. With a completely new layout for 2018, DOT utilizes their entire 3-story building for a long, winding, disorienting haunt. This haunt is an absolute must visit for the Halloween season!
