After walking by numerous times and my husband telling me it wasn't worth it, we finally decided to give it a shot (based on the local discount). Now I am clueless, as to how on earth this place is still open. I want to grab people as they are paying and save them from the misery they are about to... More

This looked promising on the outside. That is the only good thing I have to say about this "ride" which says a lot.

This attraction just needs to go, it should've been gone a LONG time ago in an Earthquake itself. The special effects are so outdated its funny, I rode it because of how bad it was before and wanted a good laugh. I don't know how the employees can stand there and look at people in the eyes and take the... More

What a waste of money. My husband and I went on a whim and was disappointed. Dumbest thing we've ever paid money for and it was a waste. We knew it was a dud when the girl doing the ride was on her phone the whole time. It was disappointing. Never again. Wished we'd checked trip advisor first.

My husband , kids , and I decided to try it out. It was HORRIBLE I tell you. It's cheesy and boring. It's also really short too. 7 dollars a person is totally not worth it. Please don't waste your money and go to a better attraction.

This was the dumbest and cheesiest thing I've ever wasted money on in my life. It goes forward, shakes you around for a second, and then brings you back. "State of the art special effects"?!? Maybe if it was 1985!

Not at all what I expected. I would not recommend this to anyone, including children, as it is very disappointing.

The writeup sounds so much better than it is: "As the train car moves out of the station, there's another train on the track bearing down on yours. Sidewalks buckle. Ceilings cave-in. The track gives-way and sinks into the ground. The quake intensifies. Sirens scream and walls collapse. Includes special effects." The car moves forward; a light appears in front,... More
