I like that they have non moving seats as well if you don’t want the moving and bumping ! Great experience full of unexpected pleasantries in the film. A sensory experience for real .

Gatlinburg TN is a fun place with fun things to do. We tried Ripley’s Moving Theater. It’s ok; but expensive — $16 a person (we did not buy a package of Ripley attractions that would have reduced the cost per location). I believe little children...More

758craigp, Thank you for sharing your review with us. As you said, we do have a sign outside warning of motion sickness, and we also have non-moving seats available.

marleyb395, Thank you for sharing your review with us. We have actually just struck a deal with the movie company we use that will allow us to change these films out more frequently. We look forward to your visit in February!

Could use a update it seems very dated and old the seats are old and very uncomfortable it’s overpriced and the movies are very short good for kids but not recommend to adults without children it’s just not worth it

This 5D movie theater is alright if you want to burn up about 30mins. Young kids will like it. $15 plus tax for admission is about par for this type of attraction.

We got a coupon for the aquarium and two attractions from the wonderful lady working the counter. I wish I could remember her name! The movies were great, and the motion felt like a roller coaster

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