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 did not enjoy this, but the young kids who were in the theater with me seemed to love it. The movie was not very immersive, especially if you are used to IMAX theaters and Universal Orlando. The movement was just a jolting chair and fans blowing on you.

My husband and I enjoyed this attraction very much. Staff was helpful and overall a fun experience. The movies are more for kids which is great when you have a family. We were able to attend this and 2 other Riply events for only $80 which was an awesome deal.

This would be great for small kids. It was cute but not worth the money they charge. The movies were funny, they play 2. I think overall the time we actually spent in there was 15 minutes...

This is a wow experience. It's in 5D. 2 short movies. It's like riding a cool roller coaster. Its in 3D, Your seats move, you get sprayed mist when the ride/movie hits water, and it actually looked like it was snowing in the theater during one of the films. My son and I loved it.

Enjoyed the 5D experience. The seats were a bit hard but guess you could say that made the ride more authentic. We went as a couple but I think kids would enjoy the little story-line rides even more. A moving theater has been my dream for a long time. Glad I finally did it :-)

The seats really banged me around. I felt like I had been beaten when it stopped. The show was cute but I didn't much care for the way it bumped around. It was a bit much.

Don't waste your money! I would not take small children on this ride I would adhere to their recommendations and do not go on this ride and if you have neck, back problems or pregnancy as it is a very very rough ride. There is no padding in the seats and you are tipped up down and to the side... More
