It’s going to be a bumpy ride. Better strap on your seat belts for this seriously REAL-D 5D Moving Theater experience. Our state of the art theater with digital effects and motions seats will have you feeling like you’re in the movie!

Bump, dip, and shake your way through our Roadhoggers and Winter Wipeout adventures. We advise expectant mothers and people with certain medical conditions not to ride this ride. Fun for a date night, or a trip with the entire family, but hold on tight!

Just something to do

Overpriced for what you get. Movies need more special effects. Good for little kids. 7d theatre across the street is much better. Overall just something to pass the time.

This is a favorite attraction for our kids. They enjoy each movie that is offered. And we adults get to people watch right outside!

We were in line for about 90 minutes- in February- for a six minute double feature. Not worth the time didn't standing in line.

Thank you for the review. From what I understand of the situation, there was some required maintenance underway at the time. We operate with the highest level of safety, so unfortunately, things like this happen every once in a while. We hope you'll give us another opportunity in the future! Thank you! More

I enjoyed this little theater! There were two really cute short films (about 5 minutes each).One involved snowmen and the other pigs in jeeps. I really felt a part of the action, especially when they sprayed the mist in the air as the cartoon pigs threw mud at us. This was fun. I will definitely do this again.

I went to the theatrr with my parents, and my 11 year old brother. We saw a pig/farm movie first with pigs riding fourwheelers on roads, down train tunnels, and cliffs. That was my favorite one! The second one was a snow ride with a couple of snowmen, and the abdominale snowman joins in after a few minutes. Even "snow"... More

We did a package deal with the aquarium. It was pretty cool but I wish it lasted longer. Ok graphics though and my kids(9 & 10) loved it. It's kinda a 1 time only thing to do though. I personally had more fun playing the claw machine in the lobby.

This is a great attraction if you have younger children or if you're in the mood for watching a 5D movie. I liked the fact that you get 2 movies out of it. We saw a Pig/Farm one and a Winter one (Which was the best because it snowed from the ceiling). Pretty awesome attraction!

This was an add on to our Ripley's adventure and I am so glad we did it. My grandchildren had a blast and my husband and I both laughed like we were kids again. I would recommend this for any age and a must do for the kids.

We tried out Ripley’s 5D Moving Theater while we were in Gatlinburg, with mixed reviews: our littlest guys loved it, while the older (more motion-sickness prone) members of our family weren’t so sure they’d do it again. They were playing a double feature the day we were there. The first film put you in the driver’s seat of a four-wheeler... More

Like that you get 2 movies! The first one was better than the second. Had the theater to ourselves. It was very entertaining and fun!
