“Don't waste your money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

$12.95 per adult. Freezing! Get sprayed with water while you're freezing. Odd movies with horrible 3D. Our group was teenagers and 2 adults. No one liked it. We left half way through. Too cold to even bother to finish it.

“some of these films werent meant to be 4 d.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Very disappointing. At least 2 films too many. Several films shouldn't have been made into 4 d, like the "wizard of oz", and the other one about fairies. They just didn't translate to 4d for me. Also in between several of the films, they had the same introduction and my 4 year old daughter dreaded the part where "the guy spits on you " again. The best film was the log ride, but even that was too long and repetitive.

“Fun - did as a package ticket”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We did this as a package ticket to see WizardQuest, Ripley's and the 4-D theatre. Overall the theatre is small and doesn't use the latest 3-D techonology but it was still fun. When we went you got to 6 short films (almost an entire hour) - some unique adventures specifically for the theater and some were shortened synopsises of full length movies like Wizard of Oz or Yogi Bear.

The moveis were OK on the 3-D, the chairs vibrated and shook, you got squirted by water and poked in the back (did jolt you but by no means was painful). All in all everyone in the theatre was laughing and having fun.

“Do Not Waste Your Money or Time”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

This was a huge let down, you do not pick which movie you want to see, but pay for all 4 of them which in my opinion makes it less than 'Kid' friendly. Also when we bought tickets we were under the impression that the chairs moved which they don't, you do however get blasted with air, sprayed in the face with water, and poked in the back (which for all of us was VERY painful). We left after the second film due to the fact that my 6 year old nephew understandbly got frightened and the rest of us were tired of being jabbed in the back.

“Fun...but it kinda hurt. hah”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This was fun, but it actually kind of hurt during the movie the way the seats moved so hard in different directions. I wouldn't take a child under 8 there because of that reason.
