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

This ride was the most ridiculous thing I've ever spent money on. It's ridiculously overpriced for a large bus that goes forward, shakes a bit, and goes backwards. The kids that were with us weren't even impressed. I'm not even sure why this ride is here or how it's still open.

I thought this was going to just be a ride for the kids. Imagine my surprise when I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. It was fun and exciting.

Did this ride a few years ago, and I still remember how awful it is. It might be worth it to go, just so you will have a story about how awful this thing is, but only if you cannot find a better use for your money, like paying someone to repeatedly punch you in the face.

My children begged and begged to go on this ride. It's obvious they do not pay the girl up front much (if at all) to be there because honestly she had the personality of a shoe. Maybe, in fact, it was because she was feeling guilty for taking our money, knowing what we were about to experience...or, should I say... More

Total waste of $20! Rip off! Should have listened to the reviews on Trip Advisor... Should have asked for our money back. Very disappointing!
