We went here when another exhibit we wanted to go to didn't pan out. It is a surprisingly good ride. It is very long but a lot of fun and unexpected turns.

Not worth, go somewhere else. Save your money. Worst ride ever. I think the person who operater the ride is more scary then the ride itself. The seats move for and backward and...that it?. Regret.

If it was a quarter of the price but even then I would question the value. 8 seats on a pretend subway train. It moves forward and then has all sorts of things that wouldn’t happen in an earthquake. Snakes, gorillas, and all sorts of...More

This place isn't that bad- but it's certainly nowhere near good either. The gist of the ride is that you are supposed to be on a train, but an earthquake occurs- leading to many things that most likely wouldn't happen during an earthquake, such as...More
