Overview

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!

My husband attended with 5 kids, our 2 sons and 3 cousins. He hated it and the kids loved it. However, it didn’t last very long. We probably wouldn’t go to this attraction again.

We went to this because we had prepaid for 3 attractions. The videos were very short with no real story to them. The chairs shake and air blows at you. This is a one and done kinda attraction

For what you get this is a fairly expensive attraction. It only lasts about 15 minutes and in that time you watch 2 short movies as the chairs rock and roll you through the different parts of the movies. There is a nozzle that sprays...More

My husband and I enjoyed the 5-D attraction but my 7 year old found the first movie scary and left before the second feature, which I think she would have enjoyed because it had Santa and snow effects. I wish they would have showed the...More

A very nice 5-D attraction right on the main drag in Gatlinburg. A whole lot of fun and worked out great while the rain poured outside.

Nothing impressive here. Good to do if you have the multiple attraction tickets but would not spend the money for this one alone or wait in any sort of line. We had zero wait as there was only two other people other than our family....More

I don't think so. They have the seats outside of the theater so you can get an idea of how big or small the seats are before paying.
