The little films are okay, but the effects are bad. When I went, there was this terrible thing that would periodically jab me in the back. If you want a 4D movie, go to Noah's Ark and see that one. It will definately be more...More

Went to this because we got the "combo Package" We were in there for over an hour and able to see every movie. The pokes in the back definitely hurt and make the experience less enjoyable. My kids thought it was fun. The movies were...More

Awful. The glasses were dirty, the movies are dumb, the chairs don't even move like all the other 4D theaters I have been to- The woman at the front where you pay was pointless. Just a waste of time...

This was our least favorite thing we did at the Dells. It was "free" with the purchase of a Ripleys/WizardQuest combo pack. (I do recommend the combo pack) Normal price was $7.99-$9.99 per ticket. If I had paid that price, I'd be fuming. It was...More

4D FX still doesn't hold up to the hype. We selected the Wizard of Oz b/c we have seen it so many times and we thought it would be interesting to see the story condensed to a 20 minute tale (and they did do a...More

This was the biggest waste of time! We HATED the pokes in the back just like all of the other reviewers have commented on. My six year old son was crying because it hurt so bad. Also, the girl selling tickets was awful and rude.
