It was cute for kids

We went here just to see what 5d was like. It was ok but as adults it was not worth the money. I'm sure parents with children would love it but not adults without younger children.

This was an excellent experience for my family that we all enjoyed! We were on a big family vacation so we ranged in age from 9 - 75 and as I mentioned every single one of us wanted to do it again. I liked that you got to view two different videos because each one gave you a unique experience.... More

The area where the line forms is stocked with plenty of Coke Machines, but no restroom. There are no safety warnings, or posters, but they are needed. My party of 3 was an early example of why the safety information was needed with 2 of us being hurt. We almost walked out.

I guess it's something fairly cheap as entertainment for visitors, but i found the theater quiet gross myself. Seats were a little sticky and floor as well. Not sure the 3d theater screen and show is of the greatest quality, so it really hurt your eyes and my head. Not to mention all the slinging you around it does. None... More

We decided to try this ride and we were not impressed. First, the 3D glasses we were givin were covered in fingerprints like they had not been cleaned ever.... The ride itself was not all that great either. The screen appeared blurry and the motion seats just kind of bounced you around. I would not recommend this motion ride.

The movies were not anything special, but the moving seats and effects were very good. It is a fun diversion in Gatlinburg.

We arrived and only had a 20 minute wait. There are a few games in the lobby to keep you or your children preoccupied. There is a Coca-Cola machine in the lobby (most sodas were out of stock) that has a memory game that seemed to be a big hit with everyone waiting. The attendant was friendly and tried to... More

It was fun I just wish it would have been longer, For the cost it should be. The kids loved it & it was fun, again just needs to be longer.

We selected this attraction as an add-on to our aquarium tickets and it really was a fun experience for the kids.

First of all, we bought our tickets outside of the theater like everyone does and opened the door to go in, which of course there was a small line, which is fine. So we go in, get our spot in this crowed tiny room, where there are 30-35 people and wait....and wait....and wait...and wait...for 45 minutes to an hour!! For... More
