Not worth the price of admission. Not what I expected at all. The ride is boring rough and overly priced. I enjoyed many Ripleys attractions. This isn't one of them.

We got tickets to this as part of a package with the aquarium. It was a lot of fun but we felt it could have been a bit better. The movies it shows are very short and are cartoons.They show 2 short films and they were both cartoons. It would have been neat to have one of them been like... More

This was worth the extra 10 bucks as an add on to the aquarium. It was one of our favorite things that we did in gatlinburg. The kids really enjoyed it. The movies were very cute. I wouldn't pay full price but as an add on, it's a good place to spend some time. Just be prepared to wait in... More

The Snowmen movie wasn't my favorite by far, would've preferred a more realistic movie accompanied with the Mice racing. I really had a blast during the mouse race (spoiler alert*) ...and actually screamed when a turtle appeared. Despite the high expense,I will still be taking my 10 year old son to see it when return next month. More than $30... More

All 6 of us thought this was a super ride! You get two movies for the price..both were very cute and family friendly. Didn't have so much motion that it made you sick either. Can't wait until the movies change so we can do it again!

...then this is a great chance to see a motion 3d movie. Two actually. Each movie was about 5 minutes long, and cute. The quality was not up to par with Disney or similar, with the effects sometimes not synced with the film. Overall, my kids enjoyed it, but it was hard for me to enjoy it knowing the price.... More

The wait for the movie was probably around thirty minutes. Once inside the experience was neat. There were two short films approximately ten minutes in total length. Overall we thought it was fun

My 11 year old son and I rode this as our thing while we were in Gatlinburg. It was his first time. We enjoyed it. The movies were cute, but not as good as the runaway tractor trailer and the snow mobile ones they used to have. I would have loved for him to see those. My son laughed and... More

Way to expensive for 10min of so called fun. The ones at Disney and other places blow this one out of the water. The 3d graphics suck and the seats just go side yo side sometimes not even synching with the movie...
