Owner description: 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 am one who has motion sickness but I have been able to do this twice however if you do get motion sickness do give it a second thought if you want to do this or not. It is pricey but it can be fun. 5D is pretty cool so you might want to give it a try. There are seats that don't move but what fun is that.

Thank Andy P

It was cool but did not enjoy getting sprayed in the face with water every few minutes. There were 2 short movies that were pretty cute, probably would not recommend for elderly, people with back injuries, or small children because it does toss you around quite a bit. Saw a few youngsters walk out of there crying, not sure why though. It wasn't scary just a little rough and short.

The movie was very different. We have never been in a 5D movie. The price was to much for the 15 mins you got to see movie. We will not do it again.

Absolutely DON'T believe these "Excellent" reviews. I assume those reviews are being posted to make the lower reviews not show up, or reduce their overall rating. First, they only have 30 seats. This goes quickly with families of 3-4 so we had to wait 2 turns (approx. 30 minutes). Which, normally, is expected, and fine if it was worth it, but for $14 and what turned out to be 1 minute of seating, a 3-4 minute movie, 1 minute break and another 3-4 minute movie with mostly senseless violent seat "shaking" - was NOT "worth it." I can't imagine ANYONE giving this an "excellent" rating! The first movie was NOT timed with the seat "shaking" at all. All the seat did was VIOLENTLY SHAKE SHAKE MORE SHAKE and occasionally tilt and STOP suddenly one way or another. It made NO sense to the SNOW RIDE movie at all (didn't turn left when you did, or STOP when you were floating in air) so your body anticipates to be doing one thing and the seat does absolutely NOTHING close to match the movie or your brain's anticipation…(Neck jarring - HORRIBLE!) I was actually DREADING the 2nd movie. However, this one seemed more correctly timed (MOUSE CAR RIDE) so it was a BIT more tolerable. SAVE YOUR MONEY!!
