Ok but could be updated

I guess I've been spoiled from the motion rides down in Orlando at Universal. This was fun but not that fun. We probably wouldn't go back. But if you've never been before and... read more

Very awesome for young children but it made me car sick! Son loved it but it made me sick. The whole concept was great and I'm glad I did it though.

Not the worst thing ever but pretty the lines are super long and it's pretty pricey for such a short amount of time.

I guess I've been spoiled from the motion rides down in Orlando at Universal. This was fun but not that fun. We probably wouldn't go back. But if you've never been before and you've never went to Universal Studios this may be good for you to try.

This turned out to be a lot more fun than I thought it would be! Super great effects. My son enjoyed it so much he wanted to go again.

We purchased in a bundle and have small children so we enjoyed. Our kids had never been to a moving/5D theater so they enjoyed. I would not recommend for kids over 10 as the ride is less than 10 minutes long and cartoonish.

Cool but very short experience. The ride part of it is very jerky. There are puffs of air in your face and with our video we had snow, which was cool. For the cost the 3d wasn't that spectacular.

Perfect for the kids and those who are not thrill seekers! I am the latter, I will not ride amusement park rides but this was just my speed. LOVED the snow that fell during the one show. Theater type environment with 3d glasses. My 4 year old absolutely loved it. While not worth paying full prices, was a perfect choice... More

We have been a few times to this theater, it is pricy but the kids love the special effects. The ride itself is sort but the movies were pretty good.

Went to this with the pass from the aquarium and I'm so glad I didn't pay full price or I would have been really angry. You sit in moving seats and watch two movies while wearing 3D glasses. The movies were ok IF I could see them through those horrible glasses. I've been to shows like this before and they... More

My husband and I shelled out the $30+ for this attraction, but I was very disappointed. For kids, this is fine, although the length of films for the money doesn't make it worthwhile to me. Also, the short films themselves were just cartoonish ridiculousness, none of the 5D dinosaurs or horror subject matter we were led to believe by their... More
