  • You have to go into this with a 5yo mind frame lol...it's old, and the animatronics are ancient...but still fun as heck lol 
  • The ride was actually alot of fun, more amusing than scary, the special effects seemed out dated but over all the 10 dollars per person wasn't bad for the area. 
  • Spend your money elsewhere, anywhere, in fact. It goes 5 ft forward and 5 ft back. Employee stood there texting during ride which really detracts from any sense of realism. So many other things to spe...  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....
