“Not Suitable for Children - Waste of Money”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

The ride says that it is for ages 4 and up but the images were too scary for children under 8 - 10. The images were very poor quality and the sound was turned up so loud that it was impossible to understand what was actually being said. The plastic tubing that shot out from under the seat to simulate rats hurt our legs. Our family of four was ready to get off the ride as soon as it started. Definitely a waste of money!

“Supposedly 5D ride”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

I only wish they had told me that all it did was spin. OK here is the ride. First you have to wait till more people show up which is slow. Then you sit down on row of seats, lights go out and screen comes on. A man talks about something, (never understood what he said) then a massage like balls move under you seat which makes you think something is there. Then you are suppose to shoot at something while being spun this way then that way. Got very sick, granddaughter got dizzy and kept asking to get off. Air shoots out at back of head twice. Not a popular place and now I see why.

“Not worth the money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

My husband and I tried to do this last June when we were there but it was broke down. I had been looking forward to finally getting to try it out. We waited about 30 minutes because they were working on it. We get into the theater after paying $15 each and spin around a few times and shoot at images on the screen. It only lasted about 15 mins. We were very disappointed. It is not worth the money. If they are going to charge that much they should make it last longer. The day before we had went into Gatlinburg and paid $5 ea. for the shoot em up theater they have there. It's basically the same thing except the shoot em up show doesn't spin you around. Save your money.

“A good something to do.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

This attraction is more for video gamers. It was cool to do but short. I liked the thought of things getting you. It was a shooter game. If your bored and want something to do I recommend it, but it is not a not a must do.

“Don't bother...5D stands for Dumb Dumb Dumb Dumb Dumb”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

My family of four checked this out on a day trip thinking, according to description, that it would be an interactive 3D (at least) experience. It was awful! Please save your money! It cost us $14.95 EACH to just do the one 15-MINUTE Castle of Chaos 'ride', and all we did was sit on a little round platform, among about 24 theatre style seats, and it spun around. Big screens had very poor 3D video and we shot at images on screens with a huge plastic pistols. Occasionally wind blew at your hair or things would smack your feet under the seats to 'simulate' bats flying out rays scurrying. This is a while lot of nothing...should have been MAYBE $5 each. Skip it!
