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 our Roadhoggers and Winter Wipeout adventures. 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!

We went here and watched two movies. We were not expecting the seats to be moving ack and forth with jerking motions. but overall its a great theater. If you are pregnant or have bed back or neck problems this is probably something you would want to miss.

After waiting for the place to fill a quarter of the way up, I assume to be cost efficient, it was a major let down! The programming was definitely family friendly, but not for adults only amusement! Graphics, special effects, and overall concept is great. It has potential to amuse but not for the price. Hopefully they will possibly show... More

We saw two "movies"...Monkey Madness and Happy Feet. It took about 15 minutes. The movies were slightly out of sync from the movements of the seats and they were not quite in focus. We bought aquarium tickets and could pick two other attractions. We should have picked something else. The kids liked it okay, but also regretted not doing something... More

My wife and I visited this attraction, and definitely had fun. The show is roughly 20 min or so, and there are 2 shows. It can be kind of rough with seats jerking back and forth, so if you have neck or back issues, I would be cautious before trying it. Other than that, it was a great attraction, I... More

Two different shows with moving seats the jerking of the seat actually cracked my back so it gets rough ... The animations are very outdated and cheap looking I know Ripley's can do better they need to renovate and turn this into a smoother moving IMAX movie that last longer we won't try this one again

There are two shows that are suppose to be in 3D with rocking, jerking, slinging motions. All the while getting blast with mist of water and air. It may be my eyes but didn't feel like 3D to me. And if you have a bad back or neck, I do not recommend. My Wife enjoyed it though.

A cool theater makes you feel like you are really there in the scenes. My grands loved it. Careful if you have back or neck problems, it will whip you in all directions. It's the best priced deal if you combine the attractions in a multi-combo deal.

I personally love 5d theaters, and have been to several. This is probably one of the worst and more expensive I've ever seen. The movie lasts around 10 minutes. The chairs are wayyyyyy too rough and don't even match what's going on on screen. Basically just paid 13 dollars to have a massive headache for the rest of the day.... More
