This house focused more on creating an eerie mood, with a theatrical
presentation, than it did on providing shocking scares. Most of
the actors performed well; however, in some parts of the house it seemed
that they tried to keep patrons in scenes longer than necessary, for no
apparent reason. One actress wouldn't let anyone out of
the room until everyone sang her a lullaby.
attic and the hallway of doors were the most visually appealing
scenes, while others had less detail. In the
attic scene, there was a great illusion of a ghost rocking back
and forth in a rocking chair. I also enjoyed the hallway of
doors, where the lighting changed and evil characters appeared
on the walls.
"Tornado" was the most memorable of all the scenes in
the Eleventh Hour. In this scene, they have you enter a
small room and they lock you in. As a tornado soundtrack
is played and strobe lights flash, the room you are in actually
spins, while wind blows down on you.
Considering the name of this attraction, I wish that the actors had been a little more energetic and "in your
face". In some areas of the house, the actors were
few and far between. They were; however, very much into their roles and never
broke character. The graveyard and the alley scenes were the
detailed and well constructed.
initial scene was a simulation of a train crash. Patrons
were led into a completely dark room where a soundtrack was
played, describing a sequence of events leading up to a train
wreck. At the time of the "crash", the entire room you
are standing in rocks up and down in various directions.
This scene was ok, but it would have been more effective with
some lighting effects, fog or other special effects. Having
actual seats to sit in would have also added to the illusion of
being on a real train.
encounter a timing issue on my trip through Intensity. At the end, there was a great
special effect where a
semi comes crashing through a brick wall; however, most of the
people in my group missed the entire effect, because it was triggered before
they even entered the room.
On the night I attended, Eleventh Hour management allowed paying customers
of the other two houses to go through Third Dementia for
FREE. There were no sound effects or actors, so I assumed
that it was not fully functional at that time. This house
prints and paint splatters, all glowing under black lights. It also featured some great
artwork from the creative mind of Stuart
Smith. There were
evil-looking characters, one of which was a ghoulish face emerging from
the mouth of a monster.
most part the
actors performed well and there were some nice detailed scenes,
as well as some good special effects. However, the
final product seemed
to fall a little short of some customer's expectations.
