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!

I really wasn't expecting to have a great time but thought my kids would enjoy it. Turns out they weren't too impressed either. We did several of the Ripley's branded experiences while in Gatlinburg and this is one that the kids would have skipped.

We enjoy these types of attractions. The only issue I've found with the Ripley's Moving Theaters is the seats do not always move smoothly. They tend to jerk you around and at one point it caused a small pain in my neck. If they could...More

It was a hot day and looked for a place to sit in air conditioning. What I thought this was going to be and what it actually was were two different things. You sit in this specialized seated capsule. We had two features to watch....More

You watch a bad quality movie with seats that shake. I may be spoiled with other entertainment from Disney. However, this is not even worth it if it's free.

The two cartoons were good but this ride was horrible! It beat you up so bad by jerking you all over the place.

For starters, you're watching a 5D movie from a 3rd person perspective so there's absolutely no reason for the seats to move. When the seats do move it is VIOLENTLY AND RANDOMLY!!! The movement of the ride has nothing to do with what you're watching,...More

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.
