“DO NOT pay for this”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

horrible, horrible, horrible ... place is in need of a cleaning (car you sit in actually stinks) and a major upgrade to "special effects." I probably would not have hated it soooo much had it not been nearly $40 bucks for 2 kids and 2 adults ... major, major waste of money.

“Great fun attraction!”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

The outside is pretty cool. But it kind of lacks on the inside, although it was fun! The whole idea is you are stuck in a subway train and a earthquake is happening above you. Although I did not get the part where the big ape jumps out of nowhere. I did not know apes lived in subway stations! Although, I like this ride! It would be so different without it!

“Fun for small kids”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

If you have small kids they will like it.
You will not find great visual effects or an intense ride but is an average thing to do.

Pricing is around US$ 9.00 per adult & US$ 7.00 per child.

“Total waste!”
Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

Do not waste your money or time with this one. It's a very out dated and cheesy attraction. Can't believe they asre still running this one

“So bad it's comical”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

So as much as I hate to remember the wonderful trip to Gatlinburg because of this "ride" I do. We still laugh about it to this day. It looks like it's going to be really cool from the outside, but once you get inside you get strapped into a train (I guess??) as if you are going on an actual ride... but no... it just goes forward and backwards 6 feet. Occasionally being pushed up by hydraulics of some sort. I guess the purpose of this ride is to make you think you are in a subway during an earthquake... It's really loud and annoying.. it's actually so bad that you have to laugh. If I recall correctly there is a monkey that shakes out of nowhere... what does that have to do with a subway or an earthquake? Seriously if you can go for free, do it for the laughs, otherwise... do not go here.
