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!

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 most of the ride. Adults enjoyed the show.

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

Ripley's Moving Theater was entertaining but it was too short. I believe the time totaled 15 minutes.

We decided to do this since it was raining. The seats do move and it is rough. The nice part is you can sit on stationary seats.

This attraction needs to be updated. I think it would be a lot better with better films and a modern setting.

This was a really neat event. The seats actually move to a 3D movie. The effects of the movie are actually added to the environment. If it is snowing in the movie, you get snow lightly in the theater. This was a lot of fun and provided something new.

Fun and quick to do, this moving theatre has effects and seats that are in sync as the shows play. There are 2 shows running about 10-15 minutes each, it's a double feature, so you get to see both. It is wheel chair accessible and they do have non moving seats as well, so everyone can enjoy. Great for when... More

This is a really fun ride to go on to experience the 5 D ride! The chair moves with the action on the screen. Not only do you get the ups and downs of the ride, you also get the feeling of going through the waterfalls! Wonderful for kids.
