  • Place is a ripoff. Only two short "movies", and not much to them. For the price ($16.00 if bought separate, $5.00 if bundled with other Ripley attractions) I wouldn't do it again.  more »
  • Don't waste your time or money on this attraction! This is more of a bumpy, sling you everywhere theater. Not very fun, at all! You get to watch 2 short 5 minute films while being tossed and jerked ev...  more »
  • My eight-year-old enjoyed it however it is definitely a bumpy ride. I would not suggest anybody with young children or any aches and pains.  more »

  • This is such a fun place. I have been severap times. The quality of the movie screen is amazing. The price includes two short videos that are changed twice a year. The movement of the chairs has more jolting than is comfortable and an update of equipment with more fluid movement would be great. The glasses you use are great quality glasses. The staff has always been nice. They were quick to terminate the ride when one of the people raised their hand as instructed if they needed to at any time. There is a row of seats in the front that does not move of you want to enjoy this ride with your family without the movement or if you have toddlers who are too small for the ride. My husband was able to take our stroller around with our baby so we could both ride with our older kids.
  • It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. In line, they were advertising 2 different movies that were not what we watched. It's definitely more of a family (kid friendly) attraction than for 2 adults in spring break. I feel like I wasn't in there for 15 minutes. So, it's a quick thing.
  • Enjoyed the movie but felt that people need to be told upfront how forcefully the ride is. Had to change seats for me and my daughter because we were not told how bad it throws you side to side. My daughter couldn't even keep the glasses on her face because of the force of the ride.
  • The ride broke down while we were on it and they didn't give us a discount or coupon for another ride. It would've been nice to get some kind of compensation considering how much we paid for it. But it was a lot of fun until that happend
  • Definitely not a home run. Graphics seem a bit dated. The "snow" effect was cool if you get the Santa movie. Otherwise it's just okay for the price.
