Your seat shake and move with an accompanying movie. Two movies are shown - both cartoons. At moments, you have "wind" blown in your face or a mist of water squirted your way. Overall, the wait time to see the attraction was longer than the attraction itself. It is best suited for kids 8 and under.

I would not highly recommend this. It was ok for younger kids but was kinda rough on moving. If you are a bigger person the chairs are not all that wide for bigger people.

When we went (which was end of May first week of June), there were no long lines and they didn't make us wait til the theater was full or even part full. They let my kids and I ride alone. The films were cute, and it was more than just a motion ride (but I'm not going to spoil the... More

Stay off if you can't handle those 3-D action rides. They do have a section that doesn't move but you may still get nauseous. That being said, it's a complete waste of time and money, even the kids though it was corny. Two terrible 3-D cartoon movies that are over in mere minutes.

We stopped here because the kids (10 and 7) thought the dinosaur out front looked cool. We saw two short 3D shows. One show was pigs riding tractors and the other was snowmen riding on tubes. The seats move and bounce around as the show goes on. During the snowmen show, they made snow flakes fall from the ceiling. I... More

When I was there I saw two 3-D movies, about ten minutes each. The first one was fun but the second one was out of focus in my 3-D glasses. It gave me a headache and motion sickness. The big gimmick is that they have seats the move and tilt, and they do put you in the action to a... More

For 2 adults and a 4 year old plus military discount the show was nearly $30! The moving theater plays 2 short (less than 15 mind each) movies and besides the moving seats there is only compressed air that shoots out. Not worth the money.

Always love going to a moving theater. 2 shows for one price. A little rough and bumpy but fun at the same time. Just hold on tight to the grips and don't let your head hit the side. Special effects were cool too.

On a scale of 1 and 10 on cheesiness - this ride ranked a 2. We only went due to spending a some extra money on ripley aquarium tickets - paid extra to have 2 more tickets for Ripley's attractions. We did this place two times. First time we had a female worker board us. She did nothing but send... More

Mark I, Manager at Ripley's Moving Theater, responded to this review

HayleyJ2010, Hi Hayley, thank you for writing a review. Our correct procedure, is to check everyone's seatbelts before the ride begins. They do not lock during the show due to safety reasons, but if one was to come unbuckled the ride would automatically stop. We will look into who was working that morning, to correct their procedure. Thank you again... More
