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!

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.

We say two short movies, looney tunes and angry birds. The seats move with the movie and also special effect sounds and air spraying and such to make you feel like you were really in the movie! My kids Loved that!

The movie is fun and entertaining. The seats do move around quickly. They showed two short movies that totaled between 20-25 minutes of screen time. We did have to wait much longer than we should have. We were the only people in line when they...More

The movies were not great, and only about 5 minutes each...which is probably the limit of what people can handle anyway. It felt like I had paid someone to beat me up. Could definitely be improved by less jerky movements and some padding on the...More

Buckle up for this ride, because it moves with quite a bit of force, and can be a bit painful. Kids enjoyed it, but mom and dad not so much. We thought it was going to be more of a 1st-person perspective type ride, but...More

You get two short 3D cartoons and sit in a chair that throws you around. I did not find this fun or amusing at all.

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.
