Horrible. Not even a good overall production.. good experience at Chicagos Shedd Aquarium in comparison. Too rough, bruised and sore back afterwards. Don't waste your money...go over to Pigeon Forge and ride the Alpine Coaster instead...

after the bad reviews I was really hesitant about this attraction. It was great! The kids loved it and I couldn't stop giggling! So much fun and a good value!

My husband and I took a chance, and it was so much fun! Little overpriced, but still fun enough to go again next year! You get two movies for the price, we really enjoyed the snow movie.

We purchased a Ripley's combo ticket at the Ripley's Aquarium where you get to choose 3 Ripley's attractions. We choose the 5D Theater as one of our attractions. The two employees we encountered were not helpful and unfriendly. We asked an attendant, before deciding to wait in line, how long the 'show' was. He said it was 'about 15 minutes,... More

We waited for what seemed like forever for this attraction. There were two movies, both were cute, however, the noise level was absolutely off the charts. This was no smooth ride, whatsoever. The seats jerked you from side to side, my hips actually hurt and I left with a headache. Honestly, I've rode smoother wooden roller coasters. We had purchased... More

Very rough ride, which was explained at the beginning and the movie selection was poor. Over priced. If you have money to throw away and are bored, visit this place.

I suppose if you are kid it is fun but it only lasts like 15 minutes tops! The chairs jerk you around so much you need a chiropractor appointment when finished. The glasses are gross and they did not clean them between shows....YUCK! Totally a tourist trap. We did this in a combo for the museum and the Aquarium so... More

Denniem123, I apologize for the experience you had during your visit! Our employees do run the glasses through a machine that sterilizes them between every showing, but can leave them a little damp if they are not given enough time to dry. I will share your review with our management, and see if we can't let the glasses dry a... More

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
