    My 9 year old son and I rode this ride and we were very, very disappointed. First of all, the ride doesn't even come close to really simulating an earthquake. I was born and raised in southern Califor...  more »

    Total waste of money as well as misadvertised. I brought my 7 year old son thinking it was an earthquake simulator. It's a loud crappy scare show and not an earthquake simulation at all. It's not worth your time if it were free. The $18 I spent I almost demanded a refund.

    This is my first review on google ever, but I was so compelled by how bad this ride was that I had to save others from loosing their money. It is absolutely not worth the $10+ each for the mediocre experience this ride provides. Keep the cash in you wallet and spin around 5 times--guaranteed to be more fun and at least you won't have to fork over your hard earned cash to a grumpy twenty-something with 6 piercings and a bad attitude.

    Waste of money. How can I get those two minutes of my life back?

    First of all, I almost always rate things at 4 or 5 so I am not hard to please. HOWEVER, this was the biggest waste of money I've ever experienced in my life. There was nothing exciting about...not even close. You could get the same effect by sitting in a box and letting someone shake the sides. Seriously....it's BAD.
