I have walked past the place a few times and wanted to give it a try. I waited for my daughter to be in town so we could experience it together. The place is spotlessly clean, and the staff was super friendly and helpful. The equipment looked excellent. Pricing was reasonable and flexible. Offering everything from a single ride ticket to an hour all the way up to a full day. Other than the single ride, you can experience as many rides, the same or different, that you want. Especially on the pod ride, there were many, estimated more than a dozen different options of interactive scenarios to experience. There was also very few customers in there so there was essentially no waiting. That is the end of the positives. Now, the experience was luke warm at best. The videos used for VR were very choppy and seemed like very old technology-wise material. The actual product you saw in VR appeared to be a decade behind the equipment used to project it. The also had a theater where you could do a first person shooter game but it was not VR, it was 3 D and very fuzzy. Again it looked like it was at least a decade behind the 3D renderings of 2017. I tried one ride, motocross, that is not interactive as far as controls, just VR to look around as you watch the movie. Being a former MX rider, this was not only not MX, but it wasn't even remotely close to simulating the feeling of riding a motorcycle. The hydraulics in the ride used to simulate the experience you were seeing was so rough it was ridiculous. Rough in the aspect of abrupt, like riding a motorcycle with no suspension off road. I ended up stopping the ride after about a minute because it was not fun at all. I would not recommend this attraction because the video aspect of it is so poor. My daughter and her BF agreed that it was unfortunate the video side of the technology was so lacking. It's not terribly expensive but it is not a slam dunk that it is worth the price. After having tried it, I don't think I would make a special trip back even if it were free next time. And, if you have ANY tendencies to get motion sick, it is not for you.

Hey there RSRBOB. We're really sorry to read your feedback. It's always our goal to have our guests leave having enjoyed a truly fun and unique experience, wanting to come back for more. So to learn that you were so disappointed during your visit genuinely saddens us. We are working with developers on newer scenarios and smoother experiences constantly. The feedback you gave us of the 7D Darkride Experience are unusual - typically players really love the experience and graphics, but we appreciate that it did not check all the right boxes for you. Thanks for stopping by to try us out, and for the kind feedback about the areas we did manage to get right initially (pricing / cleanliness / friendly staff). Perhaps once we get updated firmware and VR experiences, you'd consider coming back for another try... We'd love to see you again!
