This is not worth 9.00 per person. You sit in a car that moves 10 ft if that. The car rises up, down, and side to side. Go somewhere else, a complete waste of time and money

We got in for free and still it was HORRIBLE. Took my brother who hates thrill rides as a joke. He laughed his head off and how bad it was!

That was terrible. The ticket lady was rude and obviously hated her job. As for the 'ride', that was a joke!

This ride was a joke. Don't get me wrong, we had a ball on it but only because we followed our own advice and got well lubed before we went. It was freakin' hilarious after a couple of Margaritas!! Honestly, everyone should experience this ride...More

Wish we had never done this, waster $35.00 for family of 4 to be shaken around for about 2 minutes. Biggest waste of time/money ever.

My 10 year old was really fired up to go on this, only to walk out shaking his head. $17 for 2 to experience for a couple minutes of things shaking. With all options in area, I wouldn't recommend this attraction.

Now- I don't agree that it is a total waste of money. At $8.99 per person it is one of the more reasonably priced attractions. It is outdated, but what would you expect?...the movie was quite a long time ago! It was cute and you...More

Don't waste your time or money for a 2 minute ride that is a tourist trap and not entertaining at all.
