"So much fun"

It was a very short experience for the money, but it was loads of fun. Not only did my children enjoy it, my wife and I both had a headache from laughing.
Tip: Short, but a lot of fun.

My wife and I visited this attraction, and definitely had fun. The show is roughly 20 min or so, and there are 2 shows. It can be kind of rough with seats jerking back and forth, so if you have neck or back issues, I would be cautious before trying it. Other than that, it was a great attraction, I wish it lasted longer though.

Two different shows with moving seats the jerking of the seat actually cracked my back so it gets rough ... The animations are very outdated and cheap looking I know Ripley's can do better they need to renovate and turn this into a smoother moving IMAX movie that last longer we won't try this one again

There are two shows that are suppose to be in 3D with rocking, jerking, slinging motions. All the while getting blast with mist of water and air. It may be my eyes but didn't feel like 3D to me. And if you have a bad back or neck, I do not recommend. My Wife enjoyed it though.

A cool theater makes you feel like you are really there in the scenes. My grands loved it. Careful if you have back or neck problems, it will whip you in all directions. It's the best priced deal if you combine the attractions in a multi-combo deal.
