Cheesy It almost feels like I got conned or scammed into giving someone my money and got nothing in return. They couldn't make the ticket prices any cheaper to make this ride worth anything. Not worth a penny And not worth your time

I guess I was honestly just expecting more. I was shocked I paid what I did to be leaned back and forth in my chair.

Definitely not worth your money or time! Might be fun & interesting if you have small children, but definitely not for adults!! Also feel it was too much money for just a 3 to 5 minute ride!!

Okay, so it's cheesy. It's not too expensive and I thought it was a hoot. You could definitely have some laughs with a whole group of people. The whole thing makes absolutely no sense and is completely absurd. Wonderful in that regard.

RUN! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES! Stay far, far away from this "attraction". It is a complete waste of money. My family and I wondered why the people running the ride looked bored, and not very friendly, it's because they have to work at this "attraction".

This was the worst "ride" ever. It was beyond cheesy and boring. It only lasted about 3 minutes, the car moved back and forth 3 times and a to top it off, it cost almost $30 for 2 adults and 1 child to ride. I would like to see that this ride permanently close, it's nothing but a rip off.

I was told this ride was horrible and have seen all the negative reviews on trip advisor so my expectations for this right weren't very high. I got on this ride with my aunt as well as my six-year-old daughter and 10-year-old son I wanted my five-year-old son to go on as well but unfortunately he didn't meet the height... More

My 5 year old was terrified. But it seemed too short. The only reason we did it was because we got into it free with the GAA VIP pass. Otherwise, I would have been upset to spend the money on it.

Great to scare small children. Terrible for adults. Not long enough. Cost to much. Overall we did enjoy ourselves....

I should have read the prior reviews first and could have saved some cash and time. This attraction is NOT WORTH THE TIME OR MONEY!
