"So much fun"
February, 2017
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.

"Fun show, be prepared for whiplash!"

Little expensive for the length of the movie, but you get to see 2. Angry Birds and Wiley Coyote. The chairs move a lot! We've been to several of these type of attractions but this was the most jarring. The kids were screaming with glee most of the ride. Adults enjoyed the show.

I personally like the option of moving and non-moving chairs as I don't like the movement, but the rest of my group does! You will definitely get lots of "stuff" coming at you!

We attended this in May. It was awful. The movements were jerky and hurtful. I moved to a stationary seat after first film. The movements didn't match the movie movements. It made no sense. Skip this. Expensive waste of time

Ripley's Moving Theater was entertaining but it was too short. I believe the time totaled 15 minutes.
