Visibility/Location: Hard to find. It's a small attraction inside of a large park.

Wait Entertainment: Very Poor. There was one actor doing the wait entertainment. His makeup only went down to his chin, so his face was painted white but his neck wasn't. He didn't make any attempts to scare people he just stood behind everyone imitating them.

Length of Event: 15 to 20 minutes, the marjority of it was spent walking through Pitch Black in the mud and waiting for the actor in Chain Link to let us through.

Actor Performance: The acting was really good inside the house. However, there werent that many rooms and my group of 4 was lucky enough to get in without having to go in with other groups. Perhaps that's why we got more attention from the actors. Outside of the house the other acting performances were really poor and unmotivated.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The Flow inside for my group was great, but again there were only 4 of us. we got in with just our group because the group behind us was still buying their tickets, had they moved faster we would have been shuffled in with them and it could have ruined the experience.

Appropriate Ages: Appropriate for all ages

Props / Special FX: Severly lacking in this department. Little to no special effects. Props could be bought at any local holloween shop.

Costumes / Make-up: Poor. There were only a few actors in costume. Every other actor wore make up. Again, the wait entertainment could have used some make up around his neck.

Summary: Eleventh Hour had nothing that stood out for me this year. The House itself was great but really small, Pitch Black wasn't dark and had no actors, and Chain Reaction was long because the 1 actor there wouldn't let us through the gate. How is it a maze if the actor restricts you from going the right way? The Wait Entertainment was poor, and 70% of the attraction was muddy. Overall the mud stood out more than anything. It ruined the bottom of my jeans as well as my girlfriend's jeans and shoes. $17 is a lot of money for a lot of disappointment.
