This 14 minute 3d motion ride is way over priced! The one "movie" was cute but it still wasn't worth it! My children are 9 & 16 & they both thought it was "lame".

Let's just say if my husband and I hadn't had military discount Ripley's passes to see everything, we would have been livid. Don't pay full price for this. It was a theatrical ride that consisted of two short films. It was great fun to experience the "weather" with the film characters, but I did leave with a bruise on my... More

This was okay. It would have been better if the people in the front seats (where wheelchairs would be) had been moved so I wouldn't have had to climb steps. Staff very unconcerned about that. The seats moved as though we were riding vehicles with the characters in the two movies. Doubt we would do this again.

Very short rides. It was not worth the money. Do something else if your looking for fun.. There is a 7D theatre at the island in pigeon forge that's way better.

We took our daughter on this (6) and I was a bit worried right from the beginning when I saw that the seats were wet. It was a fairly rough ride, and I watched her head fly forward and backwards and then they shot out some foam and it went in her face and I knew it was game over... More

Family fun, we enjoyed the ride after a long day in the park. The show starts approx. every 20 to 25 mins. You get to see two short movies, I liked "Winter Wipeout" better than the "Rat Race". Be ready for a lot of jerking chair movements, I felt the chairs could little more comfortable.

IT was too much, I didn't like it at all. Made me sick the first sign to me should have been we were the only ones in the theater.
