OMG!!!! This was so much fun....I laughed my butt off at my friend sitting next to me because she was screaming so much!!!! I was laughing so hard that no noise was making its way out of my mouth! I know, it was supposed to be frightening but I could not stop laughing at my friend who was frightened!

We asked the worker what it was. She said it was a fun ride that wasn't scary and is good for kids. So we payed and got in line. She played on her phone for three minutes while we waited in line. Uhhhh. NO! Her information was such a lie! It was so scary. Such a ripoff. It actually scared... More

We paid 20$ to get in. The worker sat and played on her phone while we waited. Then, when the ride ended, we sat there waiting for about two minutes. Kid will cover eyes and ears the whole time. Unless your looking for a rip off ride go somewhere else. This ride is a fast moving, fire shooting, chair rocking,... More

Walked past the ride just as my husband was giving my crap for not going in the haunted houses. we had both been on similar rides in other places, so we thought it would be cool. Paid $20 for us both to get in line, and got right on. Some worker lady sat in the back while the "subway" moved... More

I had two younger children with me, and they were very nervous during the moments leading up to it. As much as I wanted it to be a enjoyable experience, it was average to say the least. The kids definitely got a kick out of it, and I would say to the adults, let your kids enjoy it on their... More

Seriously. $9 for a ride worth about $2. Boring and SO not worth it. Advertised as adventurous and fun, but it wasn't even CLOSE.

Worst "ride" in the history of rides! Don't waste your money!! This is so lame they should pay you to ride it! Our 9 year old son even commented about how awful it was!

We decided to go here on a whim, and at $9 each we were expecting something pretty decent. The ride lasted less than 10 minutes, and to be fair it shouldn't really even be described as a proper 'ride'- you sit in a train carriage and it goes back and forth while an apparent 'earthquake' happens. It all just seemed... More
