Visibility/Location: If you are going by mapquest, then you might have a hard time finding the place. The best way to find this haunt is to find the berthold garden center sign and park right in their lot. The parking is free so that is a plus in my book. When I visited there was plenty of parking, but it is always a good thing to go a little early. Parking does tend to fill fast so the earlier the better.

Wait Entertainment: When I went wedsday it was a slow night, but it was expected. There wasnt much wait entertainment, maybe a couple girls outside talking to the patrons and showing where to go for the corn maze.

Length of Event: It took me about 40 minutes to get thru all 4 attractions. I did get lost in the corn maze and intensity so that made my trip a little bit longer

Actor Performance: I thought for a wedsday night that the actors did a great job!. the actors in the corn maze were a little bit creepy and funny. I got a kick out of nurse Betti at the beginning of the main house.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: I was with a couple but i had staggered. There were a couple times when I bumped into them but it was in the dark. I liked the fact that I was able to enjoy the performances without backing up into other people.

Appropriate Ages: I think this should be for ages 9 and above since some scenes are scary and creepy and the young kids shouldnt come through

Props / Special FX: I loved the FX of all the haunts. The creep factor of the corn maze, the detailed theatricality of the house, the decay of the maseuleom and the blaring music and darkness of intensity. I did like the toliet in the bathroom of the main house and the giant demon of the maseuleom.

Costumes / Make-up: All the costumes fit nicely with each haunt. The makeup was great! I loved nurse betti's makeup and the corn stalk guys makeup.

Summary: Overall I enjoyed this haunt! I thought $23 is plenty for all 4. Corn maze was creepy as it was awesome! I didnt bumoped into anyone and did get lost in it, so it did add a great solitary feeling. Eleventh Hour had great acting, especially Betti the guy and girl in the dentist/ morgue room and the library room. Mineshaft/Mauseleom had a good dark ambiance. The truck was fantastic and the end. Intensity was another creep filled haunt with me being lost. I did love the clowns in the cage area, with one following me and the other jumping around. I have gone year after year and they never cease to please me. Love the changes they made. I do have one criticism. I did notice that the corn maze didnt have a lot of actors, so maybe another 2 would help fill the gaps of the maze. Also a few more outside actors to entertain the waiting customers would be great. Overall great makeup, good costumes, awesome scares and great decor! Great job Eleventh Hour crew!
