Trust me on this one, don't waste your time or money. The only thing saving this from a terrible review was that the employees were friendly. The ride lasted a total of 5 minutes. It was $20 for an adult and a child. The ride...More

Not worth, go somewhere else. Save your money. Worst ride ever. I think the person who operater the ride is more scary then the ride itself. The seats move for and backward and...that it?. Regret.

If it was a quarter of the price but even then I would question the value. 8 seats on a pretend subway train. It moves forward and then has all sorts of things that wouldn’t happen in an earthquake. Snakes, gorillas, and all sorts of...More

If it were half the price, it might have been worth it. You will board a train car and go forward and back and watch things fall around you. As others have pointed out, it is pretty cheesy. I do want to note that a...More

Earthquake will give you a true carnival ride experience complete with cheesy special effects but also a nice bit of seat-jolting fun over the course of about 6 minutes. It's certainly not Disney quality but is still worth a ride.

My kids came off disappointed! You don’t want to pay $10 for a 3 minute ride. They said it was lame. Don’t waste your money.
