About
It’s going to be a bumpy ride. Better strap on your seat belts for this seriously REAL-D 5D Moving Theater experience. Our state of the art theater with digital effects and motions seats will have you feeling like you’re in the movie! Bump, dip, and shake your way through the Happy Family adventure. We advise expectant mothers and people with certain medical conditions not to ride this ride. Fun for a date night, or a trip with the entire family, but hold on tight!

Not bad... fun typical tourist attraction
Jul 2021 • Family
It wasn't bad. We purchased our tickets online. We didn't wait in line long at all. It was 2 short films that took about 15 minutes. I had 2 teenage girls and 1 teenage boy. The girls enjoyed it alot... he boy said it was ok. If you go in the tourist attraction expectations, you won't be disappointed.

Very disappointed
Jul 2021 • Family
This was sad if 5D = just moving seats that bang you around no thanks! I was expecting more from this than the Simpsons 4D but sadly nope. Very disappointed! But the Simpsons 4D at Broadway in the Brach is great! Seat move and are rigged to be interactive. I wish Ripleys could give me my money back.

Tons of fun
Jul 2021
My family had a TON of fun! The first time we went my 10 year old cried the whole time as she was terrified. We didn't see an option to get the ride attendants attention before the second movie started. We just went again and found out about the stationary seats and she LOVED them!

Meh.

If you go in knowing your paying tourist $ for a tourist trap (let’s call a spade a spade), then you can’t be disappointed. Our kids liked it and that was the goal, but we paid $70 to stand in a tiny waiting area for 45 mins (they had technical difficulties and the ride was down for a bit) listening to an extremely loud and angry customer rant and rave about how they’ve been waiting so long (like everyone else wasn’t also waiting that long) to watch two maybe 10 min long animated movie clips with little spritzes of water and some puffs of air blown in our faces for effect. It seems really outdated (hence the technical difficulties), and could definitely use some sprucing up. Definitely not worth the money, but it’s basically what we expected (minus the loud, angry guy).

it was cute

I definitely feel like this is more of a family attraction as opposed to something for couples to do. It was super cute though and I think any kids you have would have fun with it!

Loved it
Apr 2021 • Family
I went with my teenage daughter and two of her friends and we all loved it. It’s very kid friendly and the seats move with effects that come out to as in air or water spray and snow. Can’t wait till I can bring my youngest.

I'd never experienced a moving theatre before!!!! My daughter and I LOVED it!! I only wish there had been another film or the films had been longer. I would love to do this again though!!

This is an attraction to skip on the Catelyn Burkes trip! The 3-D effects if you can call them that you’re not sync up and you were left just basically seeing double. There is no four or 5D as part of the show either. This was a total disappointment!

Needs updated movies.
Dec 2020
We decided to buy Ripley's season passes in March 2020 right before the COvid-19 outbreak. We are in Gatlinburg 5-6 times a year. We decided on our last visit in March 2021 to not visit the Moving Theater. There are 2 movies and they are the same 2 that we experienced in June, October, November and December of 2020. For a one time visit it is great and the movies are entertaining, but for return visits it can be boring.

This 5D experience was missing a few Ds.
Mar 2021 • Family
It was ok. My daughter enjoyed it but it was not a 5D experience. The glasses were cheap, as a result of COVID procedures, maybe? The screen was fuzzy with or without these cheap glasses. The first dinosaur movie was not very good and boring because it wasn’t 3D. The second, Monster Family, movie was really good.

This was not a bad activity at all, just walk in with appropriate expectations.
