The movements were not synced with the videos. The videos looked like they were made in 1996. There were 2 videos, a jungle adventure and one that seemed to be Santa fighting an evil wizard over xmas gifts. There were a few snowflakes that came...More

A great experience for both kids and adults alike. I think my husband and I enjoyed it as much or more than our girls! Two showings for the price of one!

This experience was not quite as great as I thought it would be. The video is video game quality. So it felt like a three D or "5D" video game. The seats move and you feel wind and such. I think there's definitely room for...More

It cost over $30 for myself and 2 young children to do this. It last maybe 15 mins and my children were not entertained by the current movie. I don't think we will ever do this again.

Ripley's Moving Theater was a waste of money, I rode it with my husband and 17 year old granddaughter, our glasses did not work and the whole thing was just a waste of money

This place is not worth the money. You get jerked around the same pattern to short lame movies. Save your money go elsewhere.

They change. I'm not sure of the schedule but usually every few months the movies change.

They have the seats outside to try it out before you pay so you can see if it works for you or not. I don't think they have an age restriction as long as they are accompanied by an adult. I have seen some as young as 5 or 6... More
