Earthquake the Ride, Gatlinburg

Objects get thrown around and animals pop up at riders. While some visitors give the ride high marks for nostalgia, most dub it as an attraction that can be easily bypassed.

  • As soon as they came back from their smoke break, we were able to get our $40 tickets for our family of 4. They said it was 10 mins, it was less than 5 minutes. My husband, teen and I thought it was j...  more »
  • We just came across while walking through Gatlinburg downtown. Short ride but was adventurous. Maybe a little scary for younger kids but we had teenagers so it was ok. Even they closed their eyes for ...  more »
  • ok, like Jurassic Jungle Boat Ride in Pigeon Forge, keep in mind this is NOT at Universal Studios. I love dark rides, the cheesier the better. Sure it's a little outdated and needs some attention for ...  more »

  • Would have been far better as a virtual ride rather then 1 room with poorly done practical effects. You can tell the people who designed this clearly did not put a lot of thought into any of this ride making any sense at all. This ride should tell a story but instead you get hey a trains going to hit you but it doesn't. Look a shaky subway garage? beam falling oh no were going forward and the ground is opening up alien monsters? Ok reverse ceiling falling rats. Oh look stuff falling from other side water pouring thru cracked wall? dunno why? Ok forward monkey? Ok reverse the end what did i just give you money for??
  • It was not worth the price. Me and my family(4 people) we spent 35.78 for all of us. It was not worth it at. Please don't waste your money on this.
  • Total waste of money and time. The entire ride was 5 minutes and it was basically slight jerking movements and crazy sounds. It's not worth the pay. No wonder there was no line. My kneecaps were being torn off by the seat in front of me. Dark and couldn't hear the talking except for we gotta get out of here! Fake rats glued to the top,dinosaur to the side,gorilla in a box, oh and the water they speak of is a stream in the wall!!!TERRIBLE....Don't waste your money!!!!!
  • This was one of the best rides I've ever had in my life... I literally lost everything in this epic disaster quake
  • The best ride ever.... Don't miss this in your lifetime....
