Kids loved it. Worth doing just once.

The kids loved it so it's worth doing once. A bit on the pricey side. Be sure to find a coupon to save some money.

I have wanted to do this attraction every time I have come to gatlinburg, but never wanted to pay the price. This year we bought the combo pack, so my 13 year old son and I got to go. When we entered the theater they had all of the 3d glasses in a box. They were all very grimy and... More

The movie is like your racing around then your chair jerks you around so hard I'm sure I have a couple bruises from it. Doesn't last long which is good if this ride is painful for you like it was me. Even my 6 yr old thought it was too rough.

It was fun and cute. Not long enough for the price in my opinion but im glad we went. I have not been disappointed with any of the ripleys attractions but this one is a little over priced. The films are very short.

The 5 D was awesome but I was told it was about 20 minutes long. The were 2 different films but each one only lasted about 4 minutes. Not worth the money. I was disappointed.

Jstinger, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your experience. While there are trailers in the lobby, they are about 3% of the full movie. The movement and atmospheric effects which include snow, wind, and water, are what creates the 5th dimension. Your review will help us to improve our attraction for future visitors. Thank you! More

It was a good ride but the price seem very high for the 10-15 minutes adventure. It was family friendly, fun and over much too quickly for the price. Great place to get some drinks as they were the price regular vending machine.e

I have a weak stomach so this ride made me nauseated. I do not believe they will let pregnant women os small children on this ride because it does shake you, though I was not pregnant at the time. Pretty neat other than it making me sick :)

Luckily I had a free pass. If I had paid for this attraction, I would have been upset. Two movies, not very good quality 3D. The seats move in conjunction to the movement on the screen. The seats could use some padding.

So this place is super overpriced. Not worth the money at all. It's short. It is fun but just not worth it at all.
