Overview

It’s going to be a bumpy ride. Better strap on your seat belts for this seriously REAL-D 5D Moving Theater experience. Our state of the art theater with digital effects and motions seats will have you feeling like you’re in the movie! Bump, dip, and shake your way through our Roadhoggers and Winter Wipeout adventures. We advise expectant mothers and people with certain medical conditions not to ride this ride. Fun for a date night, or a trip with the entire family, but hold on tight!

This was really fun. The movies were fun and the ride was a blast. The effects were cool and at times unexpected. Must do activity with kids.

Rediculous. People working here are rude n need a lesson in manors and the height requirement is a joke. I initially left a five star review but that changes today. We bought a season pass here and had been here SEVERAL times no problem but...More

Lots of extra special effects besides the 3D. If you get motion sickness, I'd skip this attraction. Seats do move quite a bit and my 8 year old slid around and almost fell out despite the restraints. They have stationary seats and WC accessible seating....More

My husband had never been to a moving theater, so we started with this one. We really enjoyed it, the staff was very friendly. We got to watch 2 movies. The 3D was awesome and the effects were great. I do wish it was longer,...More

Air conditioned and fun for most ages. Not for you if you get motion sickness. The kids loved it, and adults laugh out loud occasionally too.

Visited 5/25 with my husband and nephew. The were playing looney tunes and angry birds. The seats are extremely uncomfortable and the handles hurt to hold onto. The glasses are a joke! If you don't wear them couldn't tell a difference. The ride will beat...More

Little expensive for the length of the movie, but you get to see 2. Angry Birds and Wiley Coyote. The chairs move a lot! We've been to several of these type of attractions but this was the most jarring. The kids were screaming with glee...More

I personally like the option of moving and non-moving chairs as I don't like the movement, but the rest of my group does! You will definitely get lots of "stuff" coming at you!

We bought tickets with the aquarium tickets as a package deal. Would not recommend. Was very jerky. Not fun

We attended this in May. It was awful. The movements were jerky and hurtful. I moved to a stationary seat after first film. The movements didn't match the movie movements. It made no sense. Skip this. Expensive waste of time

I don't think so. They have the seats outside of the theater so you can get an idea of how big or small the seats are before paying.
