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

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

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
