Dungeon of Doom Haunted House

About the owners  Every year the Legendary Dungeon of Doom has proved to be the best dollar spent on scare with new elements and attractions headed by FX experts and famous pioneers in the professional Haunted House industry, Peter Koklamanis and Tony Relken.  These two men have re-invented this popular seasonal attraction to a National recognized venue. Year after year the creativity developed into something some people would call DISTURBING.  They attribute the success of the Dungeon of Doom to the constant re-investment into the Attraction.  “As owners one must make a conscious decision how much to reinvest into your business.  We have never jeopardized our customers (some would call them as die-hard FANS) to the same old show and we are committed to getting them something new each season.  This is not the same for others who have stale mated themselves and hence seen their customer base dwindle” states, Koklamanis.  “We hold special effect makeup classes , actor workshops and other training events to keep everyone in the cutting edge from the Owners, Artists, Performers and to the most basic guide operators.  Our weakest link in our team is the one who receives the most attention to overcome their obstacles and develop into something of greatness.  The second most important attribute to our success is taking the art of Haunted House scaring and making it a Science.  Most people including our seasoned staff can’t grasp the Art of scaring as well as the Science of scaring.  So we teach the Science of scaring and let me tell you it works.  This is difficult because we associate many times with very creative Artists in our Industry and for some the art is second nature and Science is boring for them.  But we find that for the majority if we take the Science approach they do well and can unnaturally become as good and many times better than those who are born with the talent.
