13th Hour Rising is a local hotspot of the area North of Syracuse NY. They have a basic setup with minimal themes but, the duration, use of fire and voraciousness of the actors make this a place to be seen in Central New York

Facade Quality

  • Facades are questionable

   +/- Is the barn a walkthrough facade for the Hayride?

  • Christmas Tree Farm


    + Big surprises are hidden inside clusters of trees

    + Hayride fits tightly through corridors of trees

Actors and Acting


(The Passage)

    + Arguably more aggressive than the Hayride



  • Mostly typical hayride scares

    + Merebus is a true sorcerer

    + Chainsaw guys bang around hardcore with the bar
