Not really worth it..

You spend around 3-4 minutes in a "subway train" going back and forth with some cheesy special effects. Save your money.

Possibly the worst ride I've ever paid money for. Maybe really young kids would enjoy it but $10 for 5 minutes per person...don't try and find out!

It was ok I wouldn't do it again but for the first time it was ok to go to. Would be good maybe for small children or someone like that.

The ride is about 5min long with a few puffs of smoke and a rail car that shakes a bit. No excitement at all. I think we paid like $16 for two people too. Whatever you do don't waste your time on this. You can get more excitement from a merry go round.

This was a little disappointment. The ride was very short and in our opinion, not worth the money. Definitely on our "not to do again" list.

The ride was literally two rooms with a little bit of shaking in one. Not much interaction an not much excitement. The first room is just the "station". Unexciting and expensive.

It was over priced for what it was. We didn't have a wait that should have been my first clue. Have no words for how awful it really was.

Laughed because it was so cheesy. I wouldnt do it again. If you have young kids, they probably will like it.

Complete and total waste of time and money. Lasts less than 5 minutes, Ridiculous. Ten year old dare-devil boys might like it. But it is doubtful.
