This 5D ride/movie was probably my highlight. As I watched the show, I also watched the grandkids and not for one second did the smile and laughter stop on all of our faces.

We loved the Ripley's Moving Theater, it was better than a roller coaster. Loved the real snow effect and water. We will be going here again on our visit next year.

The movie is short but fun. They show two short movies and a small intermission between the shows. The whole thing takes about 15 minutes but its a little pricey. We did it with the combo tickets from the aquarium.

Good value if you purchase a combo package and fun for all ages.... Short wait time and doesn't take a large amount of time out of your day

If you want to laugh this is the place. It's like an indoor amusement ride. Really cute. Doesn't take long to get in. Last about 20 min. Good place to cool down.

Best time I've ever had going to a theater. I told my husband if all theaters were like this one, I'd go every weekend. Yeah, the movies were not very long, but they sure were fun while they lasted. If you like ride simulators, you and your kids will love this. Actually you don't have to be a kid to... More

Purchased the online pass that included this attraction and I loved it. Although the movies were short, you get two movies that definitely keep you in moving and bouncing around everywhere. There was even water and air sprayed on you!!! ( not enough to ruin your clothes or anything) but enough to remind you of your 5D experience. I really... More

To be honest I have went here a few times.. but this last time in august we didn't like.. it wasn't as good as the last time..the videos were shorter and the rides didn't seem that interesting... it's a little pricey for that short of a ride
